What size blade? The thinner the blade the less accurate the cut. What type of blade, regular, hook, or skip? What tpi (teeth per inch) are you using? Is the blade old and dull? Hard or soft wood?

Cross cutting is easier than ripping. A ¼ inch blade will tend to follow the grain easier and give a less accurate cut than a ¾ inch blade when rip cutting.

Just some thoughts.
