• Hello Guest. We are upgrading the server's XenForo versions. This has to be done in stages. 1.5.18 ---> 1.5.23 ---> 2.0.0 ---> 2.0.12 ---> 2.1.0. I will likely upgrade each one and leave it for a day or so to see if there's any kinks. When moving from 1.x to 2.x, our add-ons will cease to work. Much of the functionality of said add-ons is now native within XenForo 2.x, so I don't think we'll miss much if anything. IF we are, we can try out new 2.x XF add-ons.

As always, my poll approach is that being undefeated is being than better defeated. Teams that aren't legitimately Top 10 teams will get worked out by losing. On-field results are what matter; a win is better than a loss, and there's no such thing as a "quality loss" that outweighs a win.

Doesn't apply to rivals? :thinking:

No, f*** 'em.

It's not just mere winning though. I did a gut check on whether I would rank 7-0 Akron, and the answer is probably not. I think the difference that I'm going to have with some of you is that I think the American (minus ~three teams) is equivalent to a power conference. Definitely the weakest one, just like the Big East was, but still very much in that ballpark compared to the other conferences (ACC and PAC especially). So I don't treat embarrassing ECU as any different than embarrassing Pitt or Cuse or Vandy.

UCF has blown out everybody but one opponent. I don't think USF has blown out anybody though I'd have to go back and look to see what game I'm forgetting.
