so if iowa state is 6-4 with wins over a ranked Texas, thumping of KU, and win against ranked Nebraksa, should be in the top 25?
As much as we want to forget/put behind us Utah and Oklahoma -- it's still a fact that those 2 games were this season. And don't forget Iowa.
In my opinion -- we won't, and shouldn't, get ranked or get votes unless we win out, or if we only have 1 very close loss to either Neb. or Mizz. Then we can play the "we got a ton better during the season and now deserve to be ranked" card.
If we were to only lose 1 more game, we'd be 7-5 overall, but 4-1 after the Oklahoma game.
But first things first -- Kansas. I think we just proved this weekend that nobody in the Big 12 can be overlooked, no matter how bad their previous games looked.
May my postings be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)
I will be happy if we win against KU and CU. CFN has Colorado ranked above Texas and ISU. I don't think that ISU will get ranked unless it wins out in dominating fashion, and then I still think that they will snub us.
What we need to worry about is a winning record and making a bowl. We do not need to be wondering about being ranked, we need to worry about making a bowl game. When we talk of being ranked and we're 4-4 we set ourselves up for disappointment. I think we've got the right coach,etc. but need some time and more wins before legitimately being ranked.
