Going Polling: Florida State falls to 12th in Coaches Poll, 13th in AP Poll

156910920

As expected, after a difficult loss to the Florida Gators the Florida State Seminoles have dropped in the polls and no longer reside in the top ten.

The AP poll, which has been harder on Florida State all season, adjusted the Seminoles' spot the least. AP voters had the Seminoles at 10 last week and dropped them just three spots to 13 this time around. The top five in the AP poll are: Notre Dame, Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State and Florida. 

The Buckeyes are postseason ineligible but finished their year 12-0 after beating rival Michigan on Saturday. Still, for all intents and purposes FSU is 12th in the AP since Ohio State can't factor.

The Coaches poll sent FSU tumbling seven spots down to 12th from number five. The coaches won't offer FSU much of a reprieve from the computers now that the Seminoles have two losses and some of the luster has come off. The Coaches' top five was: Notre Dame, Alabama, Georgia, Oregon and Florida. 

The other BCS poll of record, the Harris interactive poll, will be released around 3 PM today and the BCS standings will roll out tonight at 8:30.

FSU still has two games left and can finish the season in the top 10 at 12-2 with a conference title and an Orange Bowl win if they win out, but after last night many in the fanbase are still likely to be licking their wounds and even an ACC title next weekend may not completely ease last night's blow.

I'll be back to update with the Harris and BCS rankings later in the day...

The human polls are full of crap, neither OSU or Oregon are better than the Gators. The BCS poll will reflect that.
Yes Jimbo, the BCS poll and the computer rankings are the best indicator we have of who the best team is, much better than the biased coaches and writers. It's all about SOS, you wouldn't know that since you only played 2 worthy teams and lost to one of them. Maybe you should bolt the weak ACC for a real conference where you can play a competitive schedule.
