    We're 86th (According to Deadspin)

    At least we're ahead of KU.

    I wish they would've stopped at 50.

    Hey, we're 101 in US News national university rankings. So I guess we are a better football school than we are an academic school?

    We have 0 wins. Until we win a game, we should be ranked last.

    There's winless teams with worse losses, but 86th seems a little high. Unfortunately at 86, only way to go is up does not apply.

    This also matches out offensive and defensive rankings.

    Tulsa is 76th, so if we win, can we chant "overrated?"

    86th? Whoever wrote this piece must be doing some quality day drinking having us that high.

    The writer does a fairly entertaining word-fisting of Bo Pelini.

    I'm good with anything that pokes Nebraska/Bo Pelini with a stick!

    Re: We're 86th (According to Deadspin)

    North Texas is 89....We should schedule them. Hell, we should join their conference. Hell, we should just stop playing football all together. All it does is make me feel bad about 7 or 12 Saturdays a year.
    I really do not have a problem with Pelini much.....Hell, I wish I could see some life from Rhoads. He is eerily almost emotionally discharging himself from this team. Anyone see him smirk and joke with referee on tv when we were farting around with onsides kicks at end of game and really had no freaking chance to win.....he had resigned himself. I want ANGER.

    This might be the first time I've seen Rhoads being accused of being unemotional.

    In the words of Tyler Durden: he has a "blank face, calm as a hindu cow" because his job is as secure as a gold ingot inside of Oprah's jayjay (or inside of Fort Knox or any other inaccessible place that would be more PC).
