SELC D1 Power Rankings

Scott MacPherson takes a look at the SELC D1 games from the previous weeks action and ranks the teams.

This is the opening salvo of the 2012 SELC D1 POWER RANKINGS. Same drill as last year. I take a look at the SELC D1 games from the previous weeks action and rank the teams. We always start with the SELC D1 coaches poll.

SELC D1 Coaches Poll from November 2011

1. Florida State
2. Clemson
3. Virginia Tech
4. South Carolina
5, Central Florida
6. Florida
7. Georgia
8. Tennessee
9. Georgia Tech
10. NC State
11. Richmond
12. Alabama
13. Wake Forest
14. Miami
15. Auburn
16. West Virginia
17. Kentucky
18. East Carolina
19. Mississippi
20. South Florida

#1 FSU survived a scare from UCF and an upstart USF. #2 Clemson start the season with 2 divisional victories. The top 7 from the coaches poll remain intact. Auburn jumps 7 places to #8 after a 1 goal win over #8 Tennessee, who drops to #10. I know, seems like a lot but I am a bit “bi-polar” when it comes to power rankings. #20 South Florida moved 7 places to #13 after a very nice “loss” to FSU. Georgia Tech moved down 5 places after their 9-2 loss/win to D2 Kennesaw State. Yes I penalized GT for there forfeit win, big it seems the righted the ship with a nice win over Mississippi.

In previous editions of this blog, I’ve opined my hatred for schools, chirped about past victories, and provoked opponents (both intentionally and unintentionally). Now, a week after Georgia Tech emailed “Humble Pie” to their entire team, used it as motivation, and decidedly beat the tar out of us, I’m going to be a bit more docile.
