The State's USC beat writer's AP Top 25 ballot is out:
He has us at 4th, only five of the 59 voters in the poll have us lower, 44 have us higher.
He has the taters at 11th, five spots ahead of their actual ranking 0f 16th. Only one other voter of the 59 in the AP poll has the taters higher. 57 of 59 have them lower.
That'll teach Spurrier and Tanner to stand up to Morris, won't it? Why do we give these people media passes? Aren't there some homeless guys outside the Oliver Gospel Mission that could use a climate controlled space, soft chair and a free meal for a few hours?
You can let Kendall know what you think, without giving the State a click, by e-mailing him at email@example.com or tweeting him at @JoshatTheState

He has an opinion. Oh no!
I don't agree with it but who cares? We all have different opinions.

Also see where our old friend, Seth Emerson, has us at 5th??

Yeah so what. 4th ain't bad. Sheesh
I thought Emerson's was crazy. He had us at 5 with Florida and WVU jumping us...
Outrageous! It's clear that Kendall hates the Gamecocks. Is firejoshkendall.com taken?
Spurrier...I appreciate him plenty
......and really, really likes the taters.
But, hey, they did beat Ga. Tech almost as badly as Middle Tennessee did.
Give it a rest, Mr Morris. I hear the newspaper in Antarctica is hiring. You can write insightful opinions on penguin wrestling.
Please be considerate his opinion is worth something too. His opinion plus 5 bucks will get you a latte at Starbucks lol
Polls dont matter until the end. Josh can play his subtle game each week and we can take care of business . Its the best way to shut the doubters up
Dude, this ain't about the state being our puppet or our cheerleaders. It is about fair coverage. He has us ranked 4th in the danged country, that's pretty reasonable.
Morris is on a different level, it is personal with him and his opinions are slanderous and unreasonable, Kendal's are not.
I see no problem with 4th.
Kendall is a sissy....cant stand to hear that guy ask SOS questions...........
I'm sure, and giving clemsux the second highest ranking out of 59 voters , five places above their ranking in the full poll means nothing either.
You're being ridiculous. Spurrier and Tanner "stood up" to Ron Morris because he was spreading lies and slandering our athletics program. Not because someone thinks we're the 4th best team in the nation. This is silly to whine about.
So what? You root for South Carolina. It's time to focus on LSU. It is hard to make someone believe that they are irrelevant if we keep talking about them and what they are doing.
I do....it's behind 3! We are what we are! Lol
I wasn't criticizing Tanner and Spurrier, for God's sake. I was criticizing the State's attitude.
Here's some more facts for you say I'm whining about.
In week 1 we were ranked 9th in the AP poll, Kendall had us 9th. clemsux was 16th, Kendall had them 11th.
In week 2 we were ranked 9th, Kendall had us 12th. clemsux was 12th , Kendall had them 8th.
In week 3 we were ranked 8th, Kendall had us 9th. clemsux was 11th , Kendall had them 8th.
In week 4, we were ranked 7th, Kendall had us 9th. clemsux was 10th , Kendall had them 8th.
In week 5, we were ranked 6th, Kendall had us 6th. clemsux was 17th , Kendall had them 12th.
In week 6, we were ranked 6th Kendall had us 6th, clemsux was 15 , Kendall had them 11th.
To sum up through seven weeks, Kendall has never had us ranked higher than the consensus, four weeks he's had us lower. An average of two places lower
Kendall has had clemsux higher than the poll consensus each of the seven weeks of the AP poll. An average of five places higher.
We've been ahead of clemsux every week in the AP poll. Kendall's had clemsux ahead of us three out of seven weeks, including three of four when we were both undefeated.
You are trying to formulate a conspiracy theory that isn't there. Josh Kendall is perfectly objective. From week one until now I have no problem where he has voted. I am pretty sure he isn't trying to spite us. We have to stop yelling 'Unfair, Unfair" every time someone in the state serves a view that we don't like. It makes us sound whiney.
The people down voting your post are morons.
Elliott "Small" Fry
The fact that he ever ranked Clemson above us shows how much of a dipshit he is. We are the third best team in the country and there really is no debate. Saying we are the fourth best team is justflat out false.
His bias is very clear.
I smell a conspiracy.
Like I said. Outrageous.
I smell something also.
He's still pissed because we fired his hero Dave Odom.
and who would you place in front of us?
