    Re: Can we get some credit

    Seems a little low when you look at some of the teams right ahead of us.

    Moved the thread to the football forum.

    Those rankings are a joke, but we just need to go out and win.

    Re: Can we get some credit

    That kinda sucks to see. Their points system doesn't make much sense to me though. 2 points for a 10 win season, -2 points for a losing season?
    It seems to me that is a little harsh, but whatever.

    Re: Can we get some credit

    In my opinion, we should be about 61...


    Edit: Why is Baylor ahead of OK State?

    If you want to disagree with the point system that is fine, but what else is there to debate? The numbers are what they are.

    This. Respect is earned, not given. We haven't done a whole lot of earning in the last four seasons.

    Re: Can we get some credit

    I agree with the last several posters - we are the last fan base that should be whining about lack of respect in terms of our football's history.

    Re: Can we get some credit

    i must have missed the years that buffalo was a power house.

    Besides, does it take into consideration who the losses were to? I know our record vs OU and nebraska is pretty terrible, but pretty much everyone who played them back in the day lost to them...
