Did tcu lose their entire squad and coach? Werent they pretty solid? Or just solid against ISU?
Absolutely shocked they rated us that high!!
4 starters? Did Jacobson leave?
I agree for the most part. Some on your "too high" list could be close to their placement on paper, but have some track record of dropping below hype -- Maryland, Texas obviously and Providence.
Iowa State schedule with opponent rankings, based on CBS 1-353. I think it accounts for everyone -- notify me if I omitted anything or have a ranking misnumbered.

Iowa's in the bottom tier of opponents, you say?
In football and basketball. Their basketball team is ranked to start every year it seems and they finish as a bubble team, or miss the tournament all together. I can't believe Shaka Smart hasn't been fired yet.
ISU needs to add Portland and Portland State so they can compete for the Oregon mythical state championship.
