    Collegefootballnews rankings are complete joke (LINK)

    Auburn in the top 10, they have not played anyone yet

    Iowa State is at 77 but they have ISU record at 2-2, I like to know the other team Iowa State lost too if thats the case, just kidding though....

    Re: Collegefootballnews rankings are complete joke (LINK)

    I like basing them on what the teams have done but these are so stupid its not even funny. Auburn hasn't beat anyone, Neb lost to Va tech, I can handle TCU being ranked ahead of Boise but Houston should be ahead of both,Kansas has 1 win over anyone decent and the other games they have struggled

    College Football Polls - CBSSports.com 120, BCS and AP Top 25

    ISU #70 in CBS's 120 Poll. Also has our SOS to date at #24 in the country. Not sure how, but oooooooookay.

    The SOS got a boost because Iowa is unbeaten and has played Arizona and @Penn St.

    Re: Collegefootballnews rankings are complete joke (LINK)

    Hahaha...Iowa #7?? I enjoy the kool-aid from time-to-time, but #7 is ridiculous. They even say Iowa's Offense is "awful". Yet they rank us #7?

    Then, under Penn State at #25, they say "Why the ranking is too low: It's not. This is a bit of a gift because the defense is so strong. Iowa isn't that good." If Iowa isn't that good, then why the hell are they ranking them at #7?

    Either the guy making these up needs his head examined, or it's 20 different people writing these and the editor is too drunk at his desk to actually proof-read for consistency.

    Re: Collegefootballnews rankings are complete joke (LINK)

    Would it be possible to make a RPI for college football like they do NCAA basketball? With only 12 games I don't know if that would be enough games to make it valid. I think it would be more accurate than some of these rankings that are based on one person's opinion or can be "tweaked" like the BSC.

    I'm fairly sure that includes games we haven't played too. On our schedule we have ranked teams in Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri and Oklahoma St. Not to mention that KSU, Colorado, A&M, Baylor, and even ISU have all received votes at some point this year.

    Re: Collegefootballnews rankings are complete joke (LINK)

    It is actually looking like our schedule will be pretty tough with 5 teams that will be in the top 15 or 20 at some point this year.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Collegefootballnews rankings are complete joke (LINK)

    I'm pretty sure we'd be in the top 20 if we would have beat Iowa, I think they put almost all the undefeated teams at the to even if they played nobody's..

    Probably because our record is inaccurately listed as 2-2 instead of 3-1.

    Re: Collegefootballnews rankings are complete joke (LINK)

    I would think to hard about this poll! If you look down, they have Arkansas (1-3) ahead of UCLA (3-0) and have Michigan State (1-3) and Fresno State (1-3) ahead of Texas A&M (3-0). Schools like Air Force, Colorado St, Minnesota and Rutgers who are all 3-1 ranked lower than all
    the above!!!!

    Also, Auburn, Nebraska and Iowa as #5, #6 and #7!!!

    TOTAL CRAP!!!
