For me it's about who won the game that was actually played. feel MSU was the better team that day because they won. I feel Ole Miss was the better team because they won. That game that OSU dropped to Purdue in 09...yep - Purdue was the better team that day. Theories about what would happen in a best of 10 series are great & all but the team that wins during the 1 game they do play is, plain & simple, the better team that day.
Do I think Bama should be ranked above Ole Miss now? They seem to be about even in my mind. My take on why Bama is anked higher is more about how UF beat Ole Miss - they smoked em. BTW - as much as I hate writing these words - the Gators might be legit.
