    ISU ranked #21 in initial predicted BCS rankings

    Just projected rankings for the first BCS standings, but #21 is pretty cool nonetheless. Looks like the computers like us, with an average ranking of #15.

    Funny that the CBS computers have ISU at #21 in the BCS standings but Jerry Palm, employed by CBS.com, still doesn't have ISU going to a bowl game.

    Isn't Jerry Palm the same guy who had Iowa State MBB out of the NCAA Tournament all the way up until they beat Baylor, or something ridiculous?

    Probably hating on the Cyclones to drive more attention to him... I wouldn't have ever heard his name if not for the disrespect

    Perhaps the best part of these rankings isn't even our own.

    Re: ISU ranked #21 in initial predicted BCS rankings

    The computers usually like the Big 12 because the conference's offenses tend to be very efficient. Many of the computer models use play-by-play metrics, and efficiency and consistency are rewarded.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    I thought it was a complete **** up but the CBSSports.com 125 (Jerry Palm) has us ranked #66th! What a complete slap in the face!

    I thought the polls the BCS uses aren't allowed to use any of that, just quality of wins. I know that's how Sagarin works, the component used in the BCS is just a who beat who, but his overall rating is an average of that and the "style points" predictor ranking. I could be wrong.
