You probably didn’t expect this. (Or at least some of it.)

    Yet he did not rank us in the AP poll. Herbie needs an assistant to keep up with his split personality. Herbie you can’t say that; you don’t even think they deserve to be ranked in the top 25. If Mark hadn’t taken that dive we would have gotten less love on ESPN than Vandy, heck they had Mullens from MSU in studio. God help us if we lose to the bizarro bulldogs.

    He’s just trying to raise a spectre of doubt about Alabama to open a door for Ohio State nipping at their heels. Herbie probably picked us as the dark horse because he is secretly tired of Lou Holtz slobbering all over the news desk.

    Herbstreit: If I pick everyone, I’m gonna be right.

    You’re right, I never knew Nick Saban was a defensive Guru.

    Any of you fb stat wizards got a number on how Herb’s projections stacked up against real life results over the last 5 years?

  7. This will show you his ap ballot as far back as week 7 in 2007. That is the best I got.

    Did Herbstreit even have Georgia on his AP preseason Top 25 ballot? I think not. Guess his assistant must’ve filled it out.

    Picking Auburn in the west is pretty gutsy, imo

    Herbie is still pissed at UGA since we beat him and the Buckeyes in the Citrus Bowl game in 1992.

    “Georgia’s a forgotten team”

    That explains why we weren’t on his ballot. He forgot.

    Yeah, Herbie can’t have it both way. Either we could win the conference or we aren’t even a Top 25 team.

    This let’s him have his cake and eat it too.

    This is not surprising to me…1. he picked everyone 2. We are becoming a fashionable dark horse in the SEC. And Kirk is nothing if not fashionable.
