    Is ISU top 25 calibur right now?

    For all those who dislike hypothetical threads please stop reading.


    We all know we are two plays away from 5-1. I hate to ask this but I was thinking about this today...if ISU beats KSU last week and we start off at 4-1 I think we can all agree that ISU would be a story in the big 12, maybe a minor story but a story non the less. Then we go TO Kansas and beat the number 16 team to go 5-1 with our one loss against a very popular Iowa team...I think this team get's into the top 25. I'm not sure I even question it.

    I know this is all hypothetical and it hurts to even talk about but we are very close to being a national story. Very frustrating but I think in a few days when the sting of the last two weeks goes away a little we might all be singing a little different tune.

    Go State!

    Crap, I meant Caliber. :)

    Not sure if we'd crack the 25 or not, but I know we'd be at least getting votes and turning a few heads.
    But here we are......

    We would've had to manhandle Kansas to get in. We wouldn't have had a win yet against a team that's proven they can win anything.

    Re: Is ISU top 25 calibur right now?

    I totally see the point you are trying to make.

    You could say... Are we top 100? We only beat Army, NDSU (1-5), Kent State.

    Thank you, I wasn't aware of that.

    I'm not sure we are top 25 "caliber" but my point was that I think we get in based on record and beating the #16 team on the road..and being 2-0 in Big 12 play. Again, it's all hypothetical at this point obviously but I think it adds a different perspective.

    Re: Is ISU top 25 calibur right now?

    We aren't Top 50 right now. Period. If we beat KSU and Kansas, we are probably receiving votes.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Is ISU top 25 calibur right now?

    The quick answer to that is NO!!

    For ISU to get into the top 25 they will need to beat a top 15-20 team. If you don't you can't make the argument that you are worthy of a top 25 rating. Because of our history we may need to have two wins against the top 20. Our past 3 years of minimal wins will work agains us. When we do break the top 25 I think we wil be deserving of a higher rating. The polesters will not want to overextend our rating.

    Re: Is ISU top 25 calibur right now?

    Following your train of thought, we'd definitely get votes if we were 5-1 right now, but probably not crack the top 25. Unfortunately, our defense has kept us from being a top 25 team.
