    Utah Drops to 11 in AP Poll

    I kind of understand with the South Carolina Upset, but still horrible.

    That is a slap in the face.

    Re: Utah Drops to 11 in AP Poll

    So much stems from the fact that these polls start in the preseason. These polls shouldnt start until about 5-6 weeks in, and then start the evaluation from there. Utah is only so low because they started at #28 and the ridiculous idea that usually someone has to lose for someone else to move up.

    Totally with you. Preseason polls are a huge joke.

    I am in total agreement with these rankings starting in week 6. Utah's drop is a slap in ISU's face as well. Turns out, we were not a "quality" win.

    If the rankings were to start this week, with a clean slate, i also dont think you'd see boise state so high. Theyre only that high because they started that high and havent lost. Theyve been leapfrogged, but havent been dropped. If it came down to it, id rather see Utah or TCU in a national championship game than Boise State.

    they stayed the same in the AP but dropped a spot in the coaches poll. In fairness to the pollsters that day, they went to #10 from #9, and OU went to #9 from #10, after dominating a much higher ranked florida state team.

    Boise came in as highly ranked as they did because they are proven winners. Still a lot of football to play and these things usually work themselves out by seasons end unless you're a team like Nebraska who goes on to the national championship game without winning your own conference championship game. Way too much politcs in the college game and the media only feeds into it.

    I, for one, condsider ISU very much a QUALITY win. Going into yesterday's game I was very worried about what would happen. As much of a Ute as I am, I expected a close game and NEVER expected the outcome we had. I was impressed with your quarterback (despite a rough day), #88, and that big white running back you have (Sorry I guess that, and this, sound's so un-PC, but who has a white running back in the FBS? - oh, wait we do to, but he's not starting) that guy looks like a workhorse just plowing through the line.
