    will we be ranked come monday?

    i think the new polls come out each monday right?

    anyway here is how team #20-#31 faired

    #20 Indiana--L/W #22 michigan and Purdue
    #21 wisconsin--W/L PSU and #3 Ohio st
    #22 miciigan--w/? beat #20 indiana and play #10 michigan st today
    #23 harvard--W/W beat two nobodies
    #24 Florida St.--W/W GT and #18 virginia
    #25 Louisville--W rutgers
    #26 Gonzaga--L/W BYU and Pepperdine
    #27 Vandy--L/L arkansas and #11 florida
    #28 Uconn--L/? G'Town and play louisville next
    #29 Nevada--W/L utah st and idaho
    #30 KSU--L/W isu and a$m
    #31 ISU--W/W Ksu and Oklahoma

    i don't think enough teams lost for us to crack the top 25. i would think we would jump KSU, NEVADA, Vandy, Gonzaga but the other teams i think will still be ranked ahead of us. that would put us at around #27ish pending what happens today between michigan michigan st. I would just assume not be ranked against OSU, although that would get us more exposure it also puts a target on our backs.

    thoughts?

    It's hard to tell. The perception by media people means a lot.

    I think there is a good chance. Most of the teams that lost were in the bottom of the rankings, or in others receiving votes so that should help. Plus, ISU beat a team that was ranked just the week before, and beat a team on the road that the odds-makers favored. That should be enough to just break into the top 25.

    I would say 50/50 like I have been saying all along.

    Coaches poll, yes. Writers poll, no.

    that is a good point. that has to work in our favor at this point right? seems like we are getting more and more good pub as we continue to win. i would say that most in the media are either on the bandwagon or are ready to jump on. except for this gottlieb character people on here continually ***** about.

    We'll be 24th. Nobody, outside of Ames, expected us to win at Oklahoma.


    Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.

    I think we will get in the Top 25 for both polls. I think the Coaches we might be as high as 23rd and the AP we will get 25th.

    I don't think any of them really matter, at least in terms of the selection committee.

    In the grand scheme of things, neither. The polls have very little influence on the selection committee.
