HISTORY: AP media poll tabs LSU, Alabama and Arkansas as top 3 in college football

The AP poll of the media released Sunday was historic for the SEC. It marked the first time the Southeastern Conference (SEC) held the top 3 poll spots as LSU, Alabama and Arkansas were atop the poll, and only the second time in the history a conference has accomplished this.

The undefeated LSU team was first. Alabama at 10-1 was second. Arkansas at 10-1 was third. The Daily Bama Blog has the entire poll here.

Arkansas faces LSU this week with an SEC West title, SEC title game berth and national championship berth on the line.

This poll was historic, as AP writer Ralph Russo said via twitter: “Repeating: Only other time 1 conference had top 3 in 75-year history of AP poll was Big 8 (Neb,OU,Colo) final rankings of 1971.” (Source)

The AP poll is not part of the BCS formula. The coaches poll release by USA Today is, and it had the same top three. You can read about the USA poll here.

    Correction Brando, I never said it wouldn’t happen. I only said Bama didn’t deserve to play in the championship game without winning its on division of its conference. But hey you still got Aubrun to worry about. I know you haven’t forgotten last year already, have you Brando.

    Hey but keep making up shit if you feel better just remember in that ranking its LSU who is number 1 and Alabama who is number 2 and they’ve already proven they can beat you, even on your home field. So bring it on Updyke nation.

      Bullsh!t Flash. You were saying Oregon and/or OK St. would jump Bama. I didn’t make it up, thats what you said. Bama moved the ball on you guys, and if it weren’t for that fluke play at the goal line, Bama would have won. And that’s what it will take for LSU to beat Bama again, a fluke play like that. You don’t want no more of Bama and you know it. The funny thing is, YOU had better worry about Arkansas, because if they beat you guys, and they very well could right now, LSU may be on the outside looking in.

      And it could very well play out that if you beat Arkansas, you would have to play Georgia, while Bama has plenty of time to heal up and prepare to beat you guys for all the marbles.

    Keep talking little flash. If y’all win the second time come on back and brag and if we win be sure and be man enough to come on back and take it. By the way can you give any proof that you are not a barner posing. I haven t found many who’s that want to talk as much crap as you want to talk. Also do you have any life beside trolling bama boards are you out of school right now for some reason or did you get laid off that mcdonald s gig

      HaHa Church you make me laugh!

      And I’ll come back, unlike ITK and some of the other Bama fans that took about a week after Bama lost the first game and never did admit they were wrong and had been beat. All they did was make excuses and blame it on the kicker or Saban.

    Bullcrap! All you ratturds said we’d never get there. Ask us if we give a shyt what your opinion of deserving or not is. It was only an accident of schedule that we played you in conference instead of in January and it was an even bigger accident that you won. Don’t expect to get miracle interceptions, rushers left unblocked on the side of the play, runs up the middle inside the 30, or the neccesity to kick 50 yard field goals next time. And we don’t give a phuck about a team who after losing to a 5-4 team, wins by default a conference without a championship game nor do we care about one with a championship game as in the Pac 12 after they were slaughtered by a 2 loss team who LSWho stomped. We having presented the #1 team with a 3 point gift, are the most deserving team in the nation with one loss. You motherphuckers just wish by some miracle it was anybody but us. Too phucking bad. With Awbie ahead we have a bye to New Orleans. You dipshyts better worry about Arky and Georgia. We may be playing Arky in Jan.

      LOL Crimsonite!

      It was only an accident of schedule that we played you in conference? You idiot we play you in conference every year you idiot!! What the hell are you talking about?

      Keep telling yourself the reason you lost was an accident and maybe you’ll convince yourself, but we both know it was not accident.

      And as for as all that other shit you did that you say you’re not going to do next time, well tell us Crimsonite did Alabama get a new coach or new players since the last game?

    Has anyone heard from Flash the Cum Splash? I’m sure the POS is posting here but I don’t hear him, her, it. Hope those Corndog MF’s don’t let us down. Arky just might kick their asses. Arky has more defense than Oregon and West Va and a better passing attack than either also. I certainly don’t pick them to win, but it wouldn’t shock me too much. Damn sure not as much as Tex Tech over Okie or Iowa St over Okie St. All of these upsets that have put Bama back in New Orleans just show you that if you don’t have an SEC type defense, you don’t have shyt. And as for playing the Corndogs in Louisiana – well it don’t get much better than that since Bama pretty much owns that phucking State with a sparkling won – lost record in both Baton Rouge (Tuscaloosa West) and New Orleans (Sugar Bowl). Think I’m gonna stick pretty close to my first game prediction, which without the unusual mistakes would have been pretty close. RTR!

    Hey Crimsonite did you notice LSU is not only number one in all the polls but numbe one in all the computers also! Alabama is number 2 in only two of the 7 computers.

    There you have it sports fans. Officially #2 and by BCS standards an insurmountable lead over even Arkie much less everybody else. Any kind of win over Awbie and the rest of the world can kiss our asses. But the Corndogs not so much. A loss to tough ass Arky and they are out of it. Or beat Arky and lose to Georgia and it will be touch and go with Okie St. Even the talking heads agree that Bama is the most likely to go to New Orleans. Wonder where Flash the Cum Splash is. Anybody heard from him? Bwaa haww haww! I’ll be so happy to get those bastards in the Super Dome. Next to Death Valley it’s our best home away from home stadium and better even than T-Town. If they beat us again I’ll forget the excuses and just say they had Karma this year. But I’m thinking they were just lucky motherphuckers 2 weeks ago and we will blast that ass. We’ll find out in 50 days if they make it that far. RTR!

      I’m still right here Dickonite!

      And as much as you hate it LSU is still number 1and the best team in the country. However, since the last time we talked, LSU is now number 1 in the polls and with all the computers!

      So now you’re bragging about a team you beat by 24 points as being touch asses? LMAO!
      Lets see LSU was good enough to beat Bama on their own home field but you don’t think we can beat a tough ass Arky?

      You say next to Death Valley the Super Dome is your best home away from home? Is that so. I could be wrong but didn’t Mighty Utah beat Bama the last time you played in your best home away from home? And didn’t Bama lose there last game in Death Valley? LOL

      So if LSU beats Alabama for the second time in the same year you’ll forget the excuses and just say it’s Karma? You are such a piss poor excues for a man that if the same team beats your team twice in the same year you can’t even admit they would be the better team!

      Hey Crimsonite did Georgia Southern really out rush Bama even though Trent Richardson carried the ball 32 times in the game? WOW

    Correction, the other 5 computers. # 2 .Eveeyone on this oil rig is crying about Bama being ranked 2 again and they shouldn’t get a chance again.They don’t want to play us again cause they are scared and even admit it. If LSU is so dominate why worry? Yea yea we know you beat us once………

      The sky is blue due to Rayleigh scattering.

      The chicken came first. It was the inbred result of Crimsonite and DES mating. Now it lays eggs like their Alabama team has been know to do.

      Everyone knows OJ did it, he played for USC.

      Yes vampires can get AIDS from fags like Crimsonite and DES.

      Can you cry underwater? Well I believe if you could have stuck the Alabama fan base underwater after the LSU game you would have had your proof that in fact you can cry underwater.

      Glad I could help you out Fat.

    Hey DumbHog, you sure are anxious for another asswhippin’. Nobody improves 24 points in 7 weeks and it was really a lot worse than that. Besides, you don’t think we’ve improved moron? That was only our QB’s 3rd game. We have the #1 defense in the country and it’s the best in the country for the past 20 years or so. We’ve now got freshman reserves who are as talented as our starters to make us even deeper. In the first place you’ll never get past LSU, but if you do it will be your worst nightmare cause we just simply match up with you too well. Glad you’re at #3. It nice to have a team we beat the shyt out of giving us a buffer zone between everyone else. But the Buck stops here. You go no further. See ya next year. Bye. RTR!

    Did West Virginia who got the shyt stomped out of them by SYRACUSE who went to overtime to beat not the historically best team in the FCS, but a terrible FCS team by 2 points, really throw for 450 yards on LSWho’s defense? Wow! Utah was undefeated ranked #3 and that wasn’t this team. Last year in T-Town West wasn’t this team. You should be in your mama’s closet hiding your head in shame over the Corndog’s record against Bama in T-Town West. We are the winningest team in bowl history and most of those were in New Orleans. Yeah, you’re #1, right where we want you. Of course if you want to lose to Arky in 4 days we’ll be glad to take your #1 and whup Georgia, and Arky again. You can have Nov 5th. That was only to decide who would be ranked #1. ObviouslyDidn’t mean shyt. But Jan 9th, now that’s what you’ve played the whole year for and there won’t be anymore rematches. All you Corndogs are scared shytless cause it’s a statistical fact that rematches favor

    Bwaa haww haww! Looked over just one of the Barnturds Rivals sites. There were actually two dumbasses who are picking Awbie to win. But even funnier is that over on the Corndogs Rivals site to a man the yellowbelly motherphuckers are inventing fantom scenarios and reasons why OSU or Stanford will jump Bama by December 8th. They are scared shitless. Before it’s over they’ll be voting for Houston to New Orleans. It is so damn comical considering only a loss to Aubie can keep us out. Now they’re making all the coaches corrupt conspirators to vote Bama out cause ‘Nobody Wants a Rematch’. Bwaa haww haww! Sorry assholes, but it’s only LSWho and SEC haters who don’t want a rematch. Oh yeah, now the Corndog phuckers are propogating a rumor that Saban is going to Texas after the season. So instead of Michigan, or Ohio St or Notre Dame, now it’s Texas who is his lifelong dream. I swear to God if you took all the brains on the Barnturd and Corndog boards and turned them into C4, you still couldn’t blow up a Walmart bag!

    I’m sure some of you have seen the BCNCG possibilities and therefore are prepared. But for some of our shall we say less gifted posters, I’m going to lay out a scenario that hopefully will prepare them and keep them away from razorblades and cyanide next Sunday. – If Arky beats the Corndogs in a very close game there could be a clusterphuck ahead, and here it is. The human voters may get caught up in the moment and make Arky #1 and drop Bama to #3. Per SEC rules Bama would be eliminated for the SECCG. Arky having beat LSWho would go to Atlanta. We would then have to hope Georgia could beat Arky cause if Arky won then they would play LSWho in the BCSNCG. Disaster! There are two ways to avoid this shytstorm. The simplest is for the Corndogs to beat Arky Friday. The other is for Arky to stomp the Corndogshyt out of LSWho so that the voters would have to drop the Corndogs behind Bama. In that scenario Bama also goes to Atlanta. But you go figure which is more likely. I suggest root like hell for LSWho. RTR!

    Per Scout.com

    “Back-to-back middling efforts versus LSU and Mississippi State have cast a pall over the Crimson Tide offense. While no one doubts that the D is championship-caliber, the same cannot be said of the offense, particularly QB A.J. McCarron and the passing attack. ‘Bama has not beaten a truly stalwart opponent since the game with the Razorbacks almost two months ago”

    Just letting you know what other people are saying.

    Crimsonite don’t curse the messenger because of the message! LOL

    BamaBrando

    Let me see… a 9-6 loss to number one LSU, and a 24-7 win over Mississippi State makes Bama look bad… hmm…

    But if I apply your logic, Bama IS ranked number two in the BCS, so that must mean they are pretty good, huh? If Bama looked bad against LSU, then LSU looked pretty bad also. LSU was fortunate to escape that game with a win. Bama had more yardage, and scoring opportunites and shot themselves in the foot. Bama beat themselves more than LSU beat them.

    You just worry about Arkansas, who has your number lately. If you guys get beat by them, you are done.

    The more Flash opens his mouth the more dicks he puts in it. And who the hell quotes some dumbass non-reporter from phucking Scout.com anyway. Isn’t that a high school recruiting site? Bwaa haww haww! Let’s just check it out. Stats during reguation only. Total yds: Al 310-LSU 219. Total yds: Al 386-MSU 131, LSU 361-MSU 193. Score: Al 24-MSU 7, LSU 19-MSU 6. Looking at the 2 games this dumbass wants to reference, well, the stats speak for themselves. Who’s the dumbass? And who has the impotent offense? Our O is led by the new Heisman leader. Most of the major publications and media outlets are now conceeding Bama to New Orleans no matter what happens with LSWho – Arky. The present question is which one will they play. It surprises me, but they are assuming that an Arky win will make Bama #1 which will mean no matter what happens afterward we cannot be pushed out unless the juggling puts us in Atlanta and we lose to Georgia. Regardless, only Bama is given a 95% chance of going to New Orleans. Worry Bitch! RTR!

    No, LSU looked like a team desperate to keep from getting knocked out of the BCSNG altogether. I see your piece of shyt coach has sold his soul, morals and personal values to Satan. What happened to the QB who got you where you are? He can’t even get playing time in a blowout anymore. Less Than Mild has shown his true colors. To play for a National championship he has no sense of right and wrong. He’s phucking over Lee for a criminal who should have been kicked off the team. I saw Honey Suck My Dick Badger have a great game against a one dimensional offense, He also gave up some really stupid big plays. Let’s see, what was it did he did against Bama other than a cheap hit on Kirkpatrick? Answer – nothing! His ass is marked on Jan 9th. See ya in our other home stadium as the winningest team in the history of New Orleans.Record 8-5 and 7 National Championships there! LSU record 6-7 and 1 National championship. See Ya, fool! RTR!
