    I'm surprised we got none. I mean, I know we were 1-1 last week, but that one loss was to a top 10 team on the road, then we took care of business at home. IMO a 19-8 team tied for 3rd in a major conference deserves some votes.

    Rankings mean nothing to selection committee. I'd rather be unranked heading into the Tech and K-State games. We don't need an unnecessary bullseye put on our back because we are ranked.


    ďI told you, I donít care if youíre black or white. I donít care if youíre rich or poor. I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    The thing that does surprise me more than that, like you are saying, is the teams we have in front of us. I definitely think we deserve votes over a few of those teams, but a big loss at Baylor and then an expected win at home vs. Oklahoma doesn't do much for our case.

    I definitely agree. I think we would play better without that added pressure of having a number in front of our name. On the other hand, it still is interesting to see how we are doing in the polls and what kind of attention (positive or negative) we may be getting.

    **** the rankings. "Never let 'em see you coming." Works for me.

    We will most likely not be ranked this year. If it hasn't happened yet. It most likely won't happen. Who cares. Let's just get to the dance.
