    That BCS computer must have a virus.

    Re: One BCS computer ranks Iowa State #4 in the nation

    If we're 4 and Oregon State is 1 and Alabama is 19 then there is something seriously wrong with this poll. 4 sounds great though. Oh and Iowa is a spot better than Oklahoma State. Right.

    Yeah, but Iowa only lost by 3 to the #4 team in the country!

    I agree...with those rankings there has to be something wrong with the computer.

    Holy Crap I didn't even see Central Michigan at 31 - they can thank us for that.

    were our fans somehow able to hack that computer and repeatedly click on ISU? We're good at clicking on ISU.

    Computer polls don't have enough data points to converge at a good solution until midseason. Right now stuff is screwed by cupcakes and a lack of common opponents.

    Re: One BCS computer ranks Iowa State #4 in the nation

    At this point there are only 27 undefeated teams in all of FBS football. How many have had tougher schedules than ISU. Not that I really think that ISU could beat every team listed under them right now, but based solely on what has happened so far I'm not too surprised to see a computer ranking us here. That is why computers are not at all reliable until you get at least half way though the season.

    Don't get KState though...they should be higher

    Re: One BCS computer ranks Iowa State #4 in the nation

    We actually lost ground with the bye. Iowa and WIU both dragged us down with weak losses - and Tulsa barely got by. I will be making a long trip to the KSU game - I hope it ends up better than the last game I attended (Utah).

    So much disrespect in that poll. Obviously we are the best.
