Two spots are basically interchangeable so clearly he sees the game as a wash.

I'm not even sure beating Miami gets App ranked this week, based on how they played against Alabama and the perception of the Sun Belt still looming. Hell, I doubt Coastal would be ranked if not for App really ripping down the barrier in 2019 after Troy and App put a dent in it in 2018.

Anyway, we will see what happens. Not a lot of confident App fans out there for some reason. Maybe it's King, maybe it's the Miami mystique that doesn't jive with their on field performance. The game will come down to the better coaching staff, and I personally think that App has it. Maybe they didn't have it last year with Peterson, but I feel like we have it now with Ponce.

I think a victory this Saturday definitely puts App. on the Top 25 bubble!

Down go USC and Texas from right in front of us. Behind us, VTech and Ole Miss win again. My guess is 2 fall, 1 jumps us.

AP: up to 16 from 17
USAToday: up to 18 from 19

VaTech jumps us in both.
Ole Miss rises to the spot behind us in both.
Iowa St falls to the spot in front of us in both.

Miami drops two spots with the loss to App while Auburn plays Akron and an FCS jumps them. ND still ranked 12th.

Can we please stop ranking team in the preseason.

RE: Sun Belt Top 25 Watch
I really don’t think the voters look at who some of these teams play. But if you’re an SEC team that is 2-0, you must be top 15 material. ND has now a bad OT win over FSU and a 3 point win over a MAC team, would call them top 20 yet, but they will be. Ranking mean nothing until week 5-6, that is when we have enough to start seeing who is actually good or not.

What is with this week's rankings? App falls our of receiving votes for losing by 2 points to Miami, at Miami, while Fresno, Toledo, and Louisiana all continue to receive votes?

Should've scheduled Kansas....

I kid...sort of

Voted make no sense, including Ethan Joyce. He dropped us but moved Miami to 16 after squeaking by us at home on a safety.

Time to give Ethan a little tweet.

Seriously though, how does Coastal move up by beating the equivalent of another Citadel? How is Louisiana receiving votes after losing to Texas by 18, struggling-ish with Nichols, and seeing Texas get dominated by Arkansas?

App loses by 2 on the road to a ranked opponent, and their week 1 opponent took an SEC team albeit a poor one, to the brink.

What?

Florida doesn’t drop, lol, may actually rise with that game. JK. They will drop, not sure it’ll be much.

Obviously two spots above us will fall, VaTech and UCLA. But we are lucky to move up I believe. Ole Miss definitely jumps us. Maybe Arkansas too. Recency bias, and a fellow SEC member (Ole Miss) moving up in front of them might keep Arkansas at bay.

BYU will start to climb. Liberty has zero reason not to be ranked too (won big vs ODU while down 10 staters/backups).

Coastal up 1, to 17, in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

BYU leapt us. Arkansas jumped to one spot behind us. Michigan jumped to 2 spots behind.

Louisiana at 41st, in receiving votes. Nothing for App St in this one.

App hasn’t done enough to earn a vote.
