    What are we rated?

    I heard somewhere, can't remember where, that our preseaon rank was somewhere in the 50's can anyone confirm or deny that? Also, any assumptions as to where we're at now after that win over NIU (who got two preseason votes in coaches' poll)?

    If they don't do the preseason ranks down to us, what were we rated in NCAA football 2011? I know when you do a fanchise that they show the preseason ranks all the way down to #117 (or how ever many teams there are now a days).

    I would think that if we beat Iowa this weekend we would be in the top 25

    Maybe if we won by 20 or more, but otherwise probably not. We'd be in the getting votes section for sure.

    Re: What are we rated?

    Phil Steele had ISU ranked #76 in his Power Rank. (pg 315 of his Magazine).

    Kansas - #70
    Northern Illinois - #69
    KSU - #66
    Mizzou - #28
    Iowa - #13

    I think #76 was way low. Show you how much PS knows about Football, not much, but he does have a nice magazine.

    #13 is as low as I've seen the Hawks...disrespect across the board.

    Re: What are we rated?

    We are ranked 9th, according to NBC Channel 2 in Florida: Caught on cam: Shocking motorcycle crash - NBC-2.com WBBH News for Fort Myers, Cape Coral & Naples, Florida

    "Josh Koeppel, a center for the Iowa State Hawkeyes, was riding his motorcycle around 7:25 Monday morning when the driver of a pick-up truck made a left turn in front of him."

    While he ranked KU lower than some of the other rankings, I still don't get what evidence (if any) there was to put them above ISU. New coach and lost all their playmakers on offense from a team that went 1-7 in conf. play...

    No, that will be after the UNI game for the mythical state title.

    If we beat them and then went on to beat KSU then MAYBE... Even then I'd expect us to be somewhere around the mid 30s. We'd honestly have to go on to beat Tech and Utah to get there! This is very very very unlikely, and if this happens I wouldn't know what to do with myself I'd be so happy.
