I think you have a should where you mean to have shouldn't in there somewhere.
But yes, I certainly see your point. However, as I said, it's hard to go from absolutely out of the poll to in the Top 25 in one fell swoop. As I said, there was more than one type of situation like that to consider this week, and the other was more impressive.
And no, I don't agree that No. 1 losing on the road at a quality opponent automatically makes them not No. 1. Our poll is pretty consistent, in fact, at not overreacting like that.
Merry Christmas, everyone.
