Dissecting the AP poll

In this week's poll Georgia was as high as No. 13, and that was on three separate ballots. Send your fruit baskets to Doug Lesmerises of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, Greg Archuleta of the Albuquerque Journal and Rob Long of Fox-1370 Radio in Baltimore.

The Bulldogs were unranked on seven ballots. I won’t name them, other than to say one of them was the reporter that had James Wilder choosing Georgia last month.

Other notable voters:

- ESPN’s Craig James had Georgia barely on his ballot, at No. 24.
- ESPN’s Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit each put Georgia at 17.
- Coley Harvey, my colleague at The Telegraph, had Georgia at No. 21. (Coley covers Georgia Tech, and yes he had the Jackets at 14.)
- Andy Staples of put the Bulldogs at 16.

Unfortunately, the coaches still don’t make their votes public. And that’s a bigger deal because it actually figures into the BCS equation.

Also, because there should be an investigation into who gave Tennessee a vote in this week’s poll. I’m betting it wasn’t Lane Kiffin.

Not to mention our good friend Andrea doesn't even have them ranked...
