    They are both receiving votes, neither are ranked.

    Sagarin on the other hand does have them both ranked. Purdue #22 and Tech #26.

    How many top 10 Sagarin finishes does KF have in his career?

    KF has 6 AP top 25 finishes. Have no idea how many time they finished receiving votes.

    If Twins wants to keep going there, he basically forces me to as well. I do apologize that Twins keeps taking this tack and boring the forum by doing this time and time and time again.

    Yep, and I choose to call him out when he lies/trolls. There is no AP #26 or #30, etc. he knows it, you know it, and I know it.

    I have no opinion/GAF on the polls. But, I really don't think you are forced to do anything you don't want to do on an internet message board.

    Well if you claim that everyone knows it, why wouldn’t you just ignore it? Because no one wants to read you 2 spewing the same garbage every other day. Talk about something worth while - like why Fran is still on the payroll.

    Let’s put it this way, I would never make up AP rankings so when others do it, yes I choose to point out they are making things up.

    Baylor (9th out of 10 Big 12 schools in Sagarin) above 5 Big Ten schools.

    If he is talking about Sagarins theory of relativity as it relates to Iowa Football, it is Yeahbuddy, Dan, Purplereign. He loves CF so much he has to have multiple names.

    Saying the top team receiving votes not in the top 25 is the 26th ranked team by AP voters isn't making anything up but you already knew that Dan

    I used to get worked up about the whole schedule thing, but I can't do it anymore. Just gotta give Iowa credit for beating who is on their schedule. It seems to me like college football as a whole is down this year. You just don't see anyone with impossibly difficult schedules.

    Especially this year, we just don't have the scheduling clout to make this argument. It's not like the Big 12 is full of world-beaters.

    I'm jealous honestly. I'd much rather play Big Ten teams like Maryland, Illinois, Nebraska, Minnesota, Indiana, etc than having to play Oklahoma, Texas, WVU, etc. CMC would rack up W's with a Big Ten West schedule

    Is it really that much different this year? PSU at PSU as compared to OU at home? WVU as compared to Wisconsin? Really, you look at the bottom of each and they are bad. Baylor, KU, K-State line up with Minnesota, Illinois and Nebraska. TCU and Okie State have proven to be pretty bad, they'd line up with Maryland and Illinois I'd imagine. Purdue is proving to be a tough game. Our schedules really aren't that different this year.

    Now the years of K-State, Baylor, TCU, Okie State, Oklahoma all being Top 15 programs-- yes. But this year, not all that much different.
