We're always ranked, in my nocturnal omissions...
guarantee....if we win Wed night in Stillwater...we will be ranked...I really believe so. Time to go watch hoosiers!
Virginia Commonwealth and Norte Dame might get dropped. I think Creighton will probably find themselves on the edge of getting dropped. Wisconsin might get moved in after losing by two to MSU and beating Minn. Beyond that I think most everyone else around the bottom of the poll is going to hold steady.
Us losing at Tech was counter balanced by beating KSU at home. Keep in mind that this week KSU went from being a #11 team to probably being a #20 something team or so. That makes our win look less impressive.
We didn't even look like a top 150 team. We should not receive more votes. Win out next week, and it's worth examining. That would be 3 good wins in a row.
Getting more votes after losing to Tech, think before you blab. That will not and should not happen.
Edit: Just to add on without quoting another dumb post: If we win in Stillwater, we won't be ranked until Monday. Losing on Saturday would erase the potential votes that the Stillwater win would gain.
It's not only about the rosy stuff that looks awesome. It's about the complete picture, good and bad.
I would say I'm more of a defensive guy, but this just seems wrong to me.
All National Rank
Record: 14-5 (4-2)
Record: 14-6 (5-2)
I don't disagree with it, but it just seems wrong.
Bumping this thread to ask IF the Cyclones take care of business on Monday vs. Oklahoma and on Saturday @ Kansas State, do they crack the Top 25 in the 2/11 poll?
ISU would be 17-6 (7-3), likely tied for 2nd in the conference.
If we beat OU and KSU and get some help with ranked teams losing there is a chance. I would guess we'd be in the top 30 at worst. Will be very tough to go 2-0 this week though.
