I was shocked when the poll came out. AP definitely had everything already caclulated except 1 and 2.
I thought SC might end up at No. 4 overall but finishing No. 3 is a nice surprise. I like how the AP punished Ohio State for getting skunked by Clemson. That game was terrible.
I'm not sure why some people think teams should not be punished for turning in horrible performances in the post-season. They think the AP voters and the playoff committee should ignore the actual game results. That makes no sense to me.
