    Who the **** is this guy and this CBS Sportsline Poll?

    Just found this poll of all college football teams, and where they are projected to finish at the end of the year.

    Northern Illinois - 38
    Iowa - 41
    Tulsa - 65
    Iowa State - 71

    How the HELL did he come up with these numbers? If he is even remotely accurate, seems we may be a bit overconfident going into Iowa City this weekend. I was expecting to see us in the spot NIU is in, Iowa about where they are, Tulsa about where they are, and NIU where we are ranked!

    We may end the year on a bit of a low note...this guy actually may have put some thought into what we was writing. With the schedules that may be accurate.

    It's a projection for the end of the season, our schedule is tougher which will lead to more losses, which will lead to a lower ranking. Also he might just not think we're that good.

    What I think you are saying is that he is strictly ranking on projected W's and L's. If so, why even bother putting the SOS on there?

    Three Big 12 teams in the top 25 while there are Three Big Ten teams in the top 10?

    It's formula based. It isn't going to be even close to accurate until there is a lot more data involved. SOS plays some part I'm sure, and is probably skewing the results quite a bit early as there is nothing else out there...

    If you go to the Sagarin rankings in the USA Today this week they still have Tulsa 4 spots better than us even though we beat them.

    And then ESPN spends so much time pumping sunshine about the B1G to try to make the product for which they're contracted to televise more appealing.
