With only rare exceptions, if you defeat a team you should be ranked above them. I get it sometimes, when an abysmal team knocks off a ranked team. That is not the case here and A&M should be ranked ahead of Kentucky.

True, but then again you've got to factor in record, too.  Like those years where Tech would beat a better team in Lubbock fluke because, y'know, tech.

Class of 1996 - I miss the days of R.C., when Bonfire burned on campus, LSU was a gimme at the beginning of the season, Tech was a nobody, UH was on our schedule, and t.u. students drank all game because they knew they were gonna lose.  I don't miss our basketball teams being under .500, though.....

There are multiple factors to consider.  Week to week the polls are hard to figure, but by the end of the season it's generally worked out, though often far from perfect (lol)!

I agree that it tends to shake out as the season goes on, but it just always strikes me as wrong. Team A beat Team B on the field where it counts, by definition Team A is the better team.
