This weeks AP Poll has been released. Only four ACC teams received votes. FSU dropped to 12th after its last second loss. Clemson is at 16. NC State received 17 points in the "Others receiving votes" catergory. Last, but certainly not least, Duke got 3 points, all thanks to John Silver of the Journal Inquirer from Manchester, Connecticut. His entire ballot can be seen here.

SEC bias is showing. LSU is not a top 10 team, after two lackluster wins against pretty bad teams and then losing to Florida. In fact, that loss might have been their best performance. But Florida top 5? They had to come back against a less-than-stellar LSU team, at home, to win unimpressively 14-6. What is it, a rule now that you've got to have 3 SEC teams in the top 5, or 4 in the top 10, no matter what?
Shouldn't start a bowl selection vigil thread until we get the sixth win, but ESPN projects us to the Belk Bowl December 27th.
If we're gonna dream, might as well think where that dream could take us. . . .

Obviously we are conditioned to pay attention to the AP poll. There is also this other important poll to keep an eye on. The Harris Poll had its first poll released on Sunday. Duke got 21 votes in that poll:
Since both key human polls are out and five of the six computer polls are out, that means that it is possible to make a hypothetical BCS poll for the first time this season. Duke is 38th in those standings.
my gamecocks looking good...
