Poll dancing

Georgia is out of the AP and coaches polls, released Sunday, making it the first time since 2001 it has not been ranked this early in the season.

Back then, in Mark Richt's first year, Georgia started the season unranked and eventually moved in. Right now the Bulldogs are going in the opposite direction, but have plenty of time to reverse that - especially since its next opponent, Arkansas, is No. 13 in the AP.

Georgia still appeared on 15 ballots in the AP, as high as No. 18. Send your peach baskets and salutations to John Hunt of The Oregonian newspaper.

Among other notable voters putting Georgia in their poll:

- Tom Murphy of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, whom covers the Razorbacks, had Georgia No. 21.
- So did's Andy Staples.
- ESPN analyst Chris Fowler had it 23.
- Travis Haney of the Charleston Post and Courier, who covers South Carolina and just saw Georgia, had the Bulldogs 24.
- Coley Harvey of the Macon Telegraph had the Bulldogs at 25.
