Watching the Polls: Baylor, Predictably, Drops

Well, let's do this thing.

Tennant groggily gets out of bed, downs a glass of water in an attempt to soothe his headache (yelling a lot is not good for the yet, it turns out), and makes coffee.

Good morning, er afternoon, er whatever time it is, I don't care. Let's look at the polls.

Hey, Baylor is still in the Top Ten of the Coaches Poll! Ahead of TCU! And then there are Ole Miss and Mississippi State in there...? Yeah, this poll is useless.

Coaches S&P+ Massey
1 Clemson (28) Clemson Clemson
2 Ohio State (32) Alabama Alabama
3 Alabama (4) Ohio State Ohio State
4 Oklahoma State Oklahoma Oklahoma
5 Notre Dame Michigan Notre Dame
6 Iowa Notre Dame Oklahoma State
7 Oklahoma Baylor Florida
8 Florida Florida State Iowa
9 Michigan State Ole Miss Baylor
10 Baylor Florida TCU
11 TCU USC Stanford
12 North Carolina Navy Michigan
13 Michigan LSU Michigan State
14 Houston West Virginia LSU
15 Stanford Stanford Houston
16 Florida State Bowling Green North Carolina
17 LSU UCLA Navy
18 Utah Wisconsin Utah
19 Navy NC State USC
20 Wisconsin Oklahoma State Florida State
21 Northwestern Tennessee Ole Miss
22 Oregon Western Kentucky Wisconsin
23 Washington State Arkansas Memphis
24 USC Mississippi State Mississippi State
25 Ole Miss (T-25) Washington Tennessee
25 Mississippi State (T-25)

Overall, the drop wasn't that bad. S&P+ and Massey rankings are still holding strong with Baylor in the Top Ten. The AP Poll comes out later today, and we already know that some have Baylor outside of their Top 25... Anyway, ignoring the idiots, the real question is what will happen to the Bears on Tuesday? Will the Committee account for the injury to Stidham and the injuries to our defense (spoiler: no) or will they drop us like they dropped TCU (spoiler: yeah, probably). Whatever, the Committee can do what they want. I'm going to watch Baylor win in Stillwater for the first time since before WWII this coming weekend.

One loss does not define us. Baylor we are, and Baylor we'll always be.

Sic 'em.
