I am sure the consensus on this board is that Alabama deserved a much more precipitous drop in the AP (and BCS). However, I am curious what is the national reasoning for this ranking. Surely not every AP voter is a dope. Alabama started the season with 7 straights wins against teams that have been shown to be absolute garbage. Then they get a decent win at home vs. Mississippi State. This is followed by one quality win at LSU. I do believe they deserve credit for this game even though they pulled the win out of their collective ___es.
And, of course, they lose last night to a redshirt freshman albeit very talented QB.
What have they done to earn a 4th place ranking?
