    Surprised we are still in the top 25 and Texas A&M isn't.

    Sooner or later, it always becomes impossible -- if not absurd -- to rank one team behind another just because they played each other. Makes more sense to compare résumés. ND's sole loss was by 6 on the road versus a top 10 team. UGA's sole loss was at home versus an unranked team down to their third-string quarterback. UGA doesn't deserve to be ranked ahead of ND.

    And Nd probably should’ve won that game. Still a little weird to be ranked ahead of a team that just beat nd

    Agree

    South Carolina beat a top 3 team on the road with a third string QB so we get to be king for a day

    What is ND's best win? UGA's is a top 10 team.

    i agree w your first statement. However, we’re not there w ND and UGA. They have the same record, and UGA won the H2H. It would be different if ND has some top 15 wins perhaps, but they don’t.

    True, who knows what Nd would do against South Carolina. Probably a win but Nd is not a juggernaut either

    What is UGA's worst loss? ND's is a top 10 team.

    UGA's home loss to an unranked .500 team down to their third-string quarterback is more bad than their 6-point home win versus a top 10 team is good.

    South Carolina should not be ranked below Georgia because South Carolina won the head-to-head.

    We lost the 1993 title to a team we beat head to head because of a home loss on a game ending field goal to a mediocre, second-tier rival so UGA can deal with being ranked lower than ND in this weeks version of a completely meaningless poll.

    If UGA wins out, they’re in the playoff.

    If ND wins out, they’re playing in a NY6 game (unless absolute shenanigans happen).

    I’d rather be in UGAs position.

    This is always the problem with early polls and the best loss theory. There comes a point where either a team gets credit for a quality loss and the quality win team loses, or it gets to a point where it can't matter anymore. ND hasn't met either of those criteria, but Georgia needs to drop for their loss and teams are never punished for other teams losing.

    I would have Georgia above ND, but by the same token Georgia needs to get penalized for losing to a bad team.

    Vegas had Bama as a 12.5 point favorite before this weekend. Obviously that means nothing and it'll probably be closer now but it's not crazy for someone to have Bama #1 if they feel Bama is the better team and will beat LSU.

    Probably never but it makes sense. ND's best game this year was a close loss to UGA who just lost to SCar.

    Not sure if they could do that. ND faced a much louder and more hostile crowd than SC did. Just pointing out their loss was in a tougher environment than SC's win.

    Saying that ND's claim to fame this year, playing UGA close, doesn't look as good now is a stupid argument?

    "ND played elite UGA close!"
    "UGA lost to USCe, maybe they aren't that great."
    "Oh"

    Idk where UGA and ND should be ranked but UGA should be ranked ahead of ND as of now.

    It's dumb to have a team ranked ahead of a team they beat when they both have the same record and the team that lost the H2H doesn't have a great win on their resume?
