Remember about 17 hours ago, when the Arkansas Razorbacks lost to 30-point underdog Louisiana-Monroe in Little Rock? SEC teams that lose to Sun Belt teams can expect to take a dip in the rankings, but this one is especially dramatic: Arkansas fell from eighth to nowhere in this week's version of the AP Poll. Not since Michigan lost to Appalachian State in 2007 has a team taken a steeper dive, nor had any prior to the Appalachian State upset. (Michigan fell out of the top 25 after having been fifth the previous week.) The AP Poll is a strange and capricious thing, but within the world of college football, the consensus seems to be that the Razorbacks were good before yesterday and now, officially, suck — more drastically and in bigger contrast to the day before yesterday than almost any other team ever.
