heck, i luv my alma mater with all my heart.  but i'm kinda like decks, i keep it real.  we "are not" the 6th best fcs football team in america.  but polls are just that, "polls".  nothing scientific about polls.  they are primarily based on a team's record.  if we lose just 1 game, we'll drop like a rock in water.

but hey, i'm gonna enjoy this ranking while it lasts.  it helps our "national brand" a great deal, it increases that good ole "aggie pride", and it increases our athletic "donations and sponsorships".  but most of all, it improves our ability to "recruit".  it would also improve our chances of earning an "at large playoff bid" in the event we slip up in our final 3 ball games.

so there's a lot of benefits to being highly ranked, especially this late in the season.  but as far as defining who the absolute best teams are, polls are never a great measurement...

A FCS fan on twitter is losing his mind about A&T being ranked #6.  Clear folks are funny.

If the whole world didn't know that A&T wasn't the sixth best team in the country, they do now. The Aggies are telling everyone who can read this thread that they don't belong with the big boys. Wasn't it Broadway who told little DII WSSU to wear our Big Boy pants. The NCAA is letting ya'll try on those pants, but you don't want to wear them.

Some schools aren't meant for the big time.  :lol:

The #6 team in the FCS poll doesn't have to beat #1, #2,#3 ,#4 ,#5 ,#7 ,#8 ,#9 and #10 teams in America to be FCS champions.  They only have to beat the one team they're scheduled to go against in round one, round two and so on.

I think Broadway's last few years have shown that when he has time to prepare against OOC competition (AND WE ARE WITHOUT INJURIES IN KEY POSITIONS), we win.  From year 3 onwards, Broadway either loses close or wins vs FCS OOC competition. 

The Richmond game in the playoffs last year was an aberration; but again, we were down to our 3rd string QB.  We don't lose 39-10 with Raynard or Carter last year.  Is the #6 ranking lofty - maybe so....but you best believe an OOC coach on the opposite side of the field ain't chuckling when he sees A&T up next on the schedule.

Would probably be receiving votes by now had they not blown that Monmouth game at home.
