    Uh, no. We aren't even getting votes right now.

    We'd get votes, but not the top 25.

    Not even close. We would need to be at least 5-2 before getting serious consideration - probably 6-2.

    Start getting votes maybe? I think we still fly under the radar due to the KSU and Iowa losses, although those may both be looking like pretty good losses by the end of this week.

    Nope. Maybe if we had beat K-State, TTU and Utah we would start getting votes

    Absolutely not. Kansas State has a much larger argument than we do.

    Completely disagree.

    If we beat Utah, we will get a coupole votes but not enough to make the Top 25 especially since Utah hasn't been tested yet.

    If we then turn around and beat Oklahoma to go 5-2, we will no doubt crack the Top 25. You'd be talking about back to back Top 10 defeats.

    If we win, K-State wins on Thursday, and Tech wins, I would guess anything is possible. K-State will sure get more votes if they knock off Nebraska. Football tomorrow night is gonna kick ***.

    Wasn't this same discussion thrown out there before the Iowa game? We all know how that one turned out. Let's try to keep things in perspective.

    If we beat Utah and then OU. We are without a doubt in the top 25. If we go on to beat Texas on top of that, sitting at 6-2, we are easily top 20.

    Re: If we beat Utah, should we crack top 25?

    Need Nebraska to lose to K. St.

    A 4-2 ISU with a win over #10 Utah and two losses to Top 25 teams (K. State should be in the 20s if they win, still receiving votes if they lose) could see significant votes, but not enough to crack the top 25. You have to remember teams that fell out of the Top 25: Texas, Penn State, USC - we're not that good.

    We needed to beat KSU.
