This isn't any sort of official inquiry or anything like that, but I'm just curious.
I was the third poll submitted this morning, and each of the first two had LSU ranked ahead of Mississippi State. You guys saw that Mississippi State beat LSU 37-7 last night, right?

I did and, as you'll see later, acted accordingly

with my formula there will be some violent swings early in the season... not that the situation you describe applies to my current poll.

As for my polls I had Miss St. Unranked that changed this week. As for LSU I had them at 9 in the preseason poll. Then when FSU loss Bama I moved LSU up to 8. Then When Ohio St. loss to Oklahoma I moved LSU to 7. During those weeks I didn't have Miss St. ranked, but after yesterdays win I moved Miss St. to 20. So it's according to a formula. This poll is a fan poll we won't necessarily follow the official polls. I do consider a non-ranked team beating a ranked team as a call for them to get into the rankings that week. Miss St. definitely deserves to move up the ranks. That's why in my poll they are now ranked.

Looks like the votes made it like you desire. Not all the votes were in yet. This is also how the professional polls work. Each pollster votes differently than the next pollster.

I may not vote on the official poll but at least the formula I use was smart enough to put Miss St ahead of LSU, but early in the season my poll thinks it's 4:20 all the time so it throws up some weird rankings. It is finally starting to look like a realistic poll well better than the previous weeks. I had to leave my team out because their numbers are really skewed because of only 1 game played otherwise it would have ranked them high again and don't want anybody saying I am playing favorites.

I mean, I get that preseason rankings make it hairy sometimes, and I was at an advantage in this case because I didn't have LSU that high to begin with. Still, though, a 30-point win is a pretty clear declaration that the winning team is the better team.

I'm surprised no one put them in the Top 4. Usually that is what happens when LSU or Alabama is beaten by another SEC team. :D
