Overrated? Reaction pours in following Georgia's loss at Alabama, latest AP ranking
Georgia suffered its first loss this season, and several people believe the Bulldogs should have paid the price more in the latest AP Top 25 ranking.
Following the 41-24 loss to Alabama, Georgia dropped just one spot in the AP poll, from No. 3 to No. 4 this week. That didn’t sit well, as some people called out “SEC bias,” and questioned the credibility of the AP poll.
Others compared Ole Miss’ offensive shootout against Alabama as a better showing the week before, however, the Rebels stumbled against Arkansas. Oklahoma State fans were among those calling out the seemingly unfair ranking.
Here’s a sampling of the criticism:
Georgia gets their ass beat last night and drops one spot to #4 in the AP poll.

Trying to figure out how #Georgia lost by double digits last night and fell from 3rd to 4th in the AP Poll, what a joke 😂😂

What a joke, Georgia still sitting in the top 5 of both major polls after blowing a large lead by laying a second half egg in the 41-24 blowout loss at No.2 Alabama. Ole Miss gave Bama a much, much better game, and it just got beat by Arkansas.

A Georgia loss and they don’t drop in the polls. Every year they manipulate who they want to see in the playoffs.

OSU moves up to 6 in the AP Poll. In true SEC bias fashion, Georgia dropped a whole 1 spot after losing by 17 points to Alabama, so they are still ahead of us.

This is what bothers me about eh AP Poll. Notre Dame is ranked 3rd after beating a now 1-4 Louisville squad 12-7 *at home*. Okay, fine. Georgia lost, so did UNC. But look at Ohio State. Shouldn’t they be higher?
