All depends on how SOS is calculated. There are multiple ways to do that. Clemson's 3 alleged Top 15 wins are based on pre-season rankings. It's very possible none of those 3 teams end up there.

But in Knight77's poll, Virginia Tech was No. 1 when Clemson beat them and Clemson was No. 3. After Clemson wins, Clemson falls two spots. After beating the voter's previous No. 1 team.

This formula just seems not worked out very well, and it's why I'm glad we're not wasting our time voting anymore.

I agree Knitghtlife77 seeing what your computer did to Clemson, it may be time to get back to the drawing board.

say what you want but I won't be changing it just because you don't understand the movements. I can't stress this enough just because your week 1 or 2 game has already happened doesn't mean the score doesn't continue to change every week. the really funny thing is NVW poll we have 20 of the same teams in our top 25 so if mine is a hot mess then that must mean his is as well just some perspective for you.

Wbuts has all but 4 of the same teams? How did that Louisville game work out.

In polling like this, having a ranked team lose is just going to happen. It's all guesswork until two teams play each other.

That's completely different than having your poll go reverse of the actual results that have already happened on the field.

I am done trying to explain how it works. without looking can you tell me who Ohio St, Louisville, NC State, Clemson, Alabama or most any other team played in week 2 or 3. Probably not, but a good pollster will go back to review all 130 teams every week to look at their body of work and rank them accordingly. I don't have to do that because it is built in to make the appropriate changes automatically. I already explained how Clemson dropped you just don't seem to like it which is fine with me. I have yet to criticize anybody for their polls except the ones that felt they needed to criticize mine first. If you criticize mine then you open yourself for criticism as well. I am not much for playing games like a 6 year old. If you want to go back to preschool then I am sure you can find one in your neighborhood. I started my first post as a jovial one to kid around and you guys just keep turning it to the negative.

I think his poll is perfect! (Except for the 5 teams we don't have in common)

I do like looking at every bodies polls. I can make an argument why everybody's poll might be the correct because most look good.

Okay, so I've posted four consecutive times. Can I become "official" again? I won't be able to sleep until it happens. Thanks!
