    They beat 1-AA Western Illinois, how can anybody expect ISU to move up after a pedestrian win over a cupcake?

    Re: ISU rated 32nd in AP Poll

    Ok... I'll be the first one to say it.... ISU plays 5 teams this year that are all ranked higher than the highest ranked team Iowa will face this year.

    God I'd love to have Iowa's schedule.

    A lot of 1 loss teams in that poll that I think shouldn't be there (namely any B10 school)

    Re: ISU rated 32nd in AP Poll

    The AP poll and the coaches poll are both 100% jokes every year when there are dozens of better polls available. Year after year after year after year Big Ten teams are 5-20 spots higher in these voter polls than they are in dozens of computer models. Time to make the BCS computer average the main poll people care about, especially outside of the top 5 teams where it's just a popularity contest for non-computer polls.

    As far as I'm concerned Iowa State is already ranked 24th as of last week. I don't respect any poll that thinks 5 or 6 Big Ten teams should have been ranked at any point this season. They lose more non-conf games in a single week than the Big 12 loses in entire seasons including bowls.

    That makes 8 out of the 10 Big 12 teams in the top 37. Pretty good.

    Quite a few of the computer models think 9 out of 10 should be top 25.

    That's last weeks poll, unless they still have USC ranked 3rd.

    Thank you for mentioning it! THis is going to sound blasphemous, but I'm glad we're not ranked right now. No need for the pressure. We deserve respect, especially if we beat any of the 5 Big 12 teams who are in the top 17! It will be inevitable that we'll be ranked at that point.

    Re: ISU rated 32nd in AP Poll

    What a stupid poll. No reason USC should be 3rd, Michigan State should be a lot lower than 10th, and Wisconsin and Arkansas should not be ranked. I don't think the AP poll will look anything like this one.

    Re: ISU rated 32nd in AP Poll

    That's weird. It looked to me like the ratings/rankings ended at 25. I don't think ISU is rated/ranked at all in this poll.
