If you're an Auburn fan, you have an understandable beef with the latest version of the USA Today Sports Coaches Poll, which has your team sitting at No. 11.
The AP poll is more generous, putting the Tigers at No. 8, but any set of rankings that has Gus Malzahn's squad outside its top 10 is making a serious mistake.
Take a look at the resume and you'll see one loss, a 35-21 defeat to LSU in Death Valley. But let's remember that nobody has come within a touchdown of the Tigers in their building, and this Auburn team is a whole lot better than it was a month ago.
That much is perfectly clear when you look further down the schedule and see wins over Ole Miss and Texas A&M. Comparing common opponents is an imperfect exercise, but the Tigers beat the Aggies in their own stadium by four points. Alabama beat 'em by seven.
Yes, the games were very different, and no, that isn't suggesting Auburn is neck-and-neck with the Tide, but it should give you an idea about how impressive the victory was.
The Coaches Poll also gets it wrong because Clemson and Oklahoma are ranked ahead of the Tigers. No team that loses by 37 at home, as Clemson did, should be in the Top 10. And Oklahoma, which is playing good football at the moment, was smoked by Texas in the Red River Rivalry,
But not to fear, Auburn fans, because with upcoming games against Georgia and Alabama, your team will have a chance to set things straight.
