    Do you think we'll get any votes in the polls?

    I know this may sound crazy but in the last 4 weeks we've knocked off the #20 and #2 ranked teams in the nation. We didn't look great against Kansas but we still eeked out a victory.

    I think maybe we get 1 or 2 votes but I tell you what...if we play Oklahoma like we did OSU (and win) we would be ranked for sure.

    It really looks like we're hitting our stride as a team. Offense is clicking...great playcalling last night. Defense is playing well...Wally well done against TTech and OSU.

    Bring on the Sooners!

    i don't see why not. we have one of the toughest schedules in the nation, just beat #2 team and have a winning record. i think we deserve something. hopefully we can show up next week like we did this week and prove we deserve votes.

    I fear getting housed by Oklahoma but as my friend said last night about the OSU game..."I can see us winning by ten or losing by 40. Neither would surprise me." I feel the same way about OU. But really seems like we're getting in a groove.

    We will get votes but I doubt we will crack top 25

    We will make a showing in the Top 25 of the BCS Computers (which are obsessed with the Big XII), but not the human polls.

    One of the BCS computers had us at #25 after KU.

    I don't think we're getting a whole lot of credit for the Tech win at this point

    I expect votes. Not a ranking, but votes. We're getting some serious attention.

    Re: Do you think we'll get any votes in the polls?

    We will definitely get votes and it is plausible that we'll enter the Top 25, but not likely. Texas and Baylor are hovering around #22-#25 in the polls and both have the same number of Big XII conference wins (3) as ISU. We have 4 losses and there are no teams with 4 losses in the Top 25, besides Auburn. Then again, voters are human beings and probably all watched the emotional victory last night on national TV, which is being replayed over and over again today on TV, so we might be surprised with a landslide of votes!

    Re: Do you think we'll get any votes in the polls?

    I don't think we deserve to be in the top 25 for many of the same reasons NYCy had, but I wouldn't be surprised to see us at #25 for the OU game to increase tv ratings.

    I am starting to believe there might be a conspiracy to rate teams higher than they actually deserve to boost tv ratings.

    Had we head are stuff together against Texas or Baylor, we would be top 25 for sure.

    I wondered about that, too.

    How many spots did OU drop after the TT loss? I'm thinking it'd be something similar.
