National pollsters ranking FSU higher than local papers?


The AP rankings get posted each week with the detailed ballots of each voter made public.

Here are the pollsters that voted us above our current ranking (18):

Mike Herndon, Mobile Press-Register - 11

Chris Fowler, ESPN - 12

Andy Staples, SI - 13

John Adams, Knoxville (TN) News Sent - 13

Kirk Herbstreit, ESPN - 14

Joe Giglio, Raleigh News & Observer - 14

Barker Davis, Washington Times (DC) - 14

Mark Anderson, Las Vegas Review-Journal - 14

Doug Lesmerises, Cleveland Plain Dealer - 14 (has UM at 2 and UF at 5)

Steve Conroy, Boston Herald - 15

Jon Wilner, San Jose Mercury - 16

John Clay, Lexington (KY) Herald - 16

Teddy Feinberg, Las Cruces (NM) Sun-News - 16

Angelique Chengelis, The Detroit News - 17

John Davis, Oxford (Miss) Eagle - 17

Scott Wolf, LA Daily News - 17

Mike Strain, Tulsa (OK) World - 17

Doug Doughty, Roanoke (VA) Times - 17

 

What I get from this is that ESPN and SI love us right now, and that we're getting the most respect from the South East, minus FL. Only 1 of the 3 Florida papers has us ranked, none in the top-20. We really get no respect in state. We also did well out west, which makes sense after traveling that way to take down BYU. The middle of the country pretty much hates us, with very few pollsters ranking us top-25. Oh, and finally, sent some flowers or a nice card to Mike Herndon in Mobile.
