the thing about Mizzou is that they were the preseason favorite to win the Big XII north, so they are pretty much up to expectations thus far. Nebraska and K-State followed Mizzou and then Kansas.<br><br>like i said above, i still can't believe we're 10 - 0 and i certainly don't think we're the best of the bunch, but we rarely make mistakes and we have a team where everybody does what they're supposed to do. i enjoy watching KU. i can't wait to see the Mizzou game -- it's in Arrowhead stadium (Chiefs) and it's long been sold out.<br><br>in other news, my GVSU lakers are also undefeated in Division II at 10 - 0 as well . . . and ranked #1. i never considered myself a football guy but my two schools are making themselves hard to ignore.<br><br>
polls are out and we're #4 (LSU, Oregon, and OU ahead of us). seems about right given the rankings week. BSC rankings should be out soon and in those rankings we were ahead of OU last week . . . that's a poll where we could potentially jump to 2 or so.<br><br>Ohio State falls to #7.<br><br>interestingly, 7 coaches voted KU #1. that surprises me a bit.<br><br><br>
The whole system sucks. Ohio State has lost one game. So has LSU, so has Oregon, so has . . . . everyone except your boys and Hawai'i. So why should LSU, etc. be ranked ahead of Ohio State? Just because OSU lost more recently? Where's the logic in that????<br><br>   

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>that's a poll where we could potentially jump to 2 or so<p><hr></blockquote><p>I don't see how that is even possible. The BCS rankings are based on the two human polls, which have KU at #4 and computer ranking that is at least partially based on schedule (not KU's strong point). Even if they move a little ahead of Oregon in the computer ranking they'll still be #3. They were fourth, they will be third this week.<br><br>
Its not really logical. Anyone who pays attention realizes that to actually be fair there needs to be a playoff system. That isn't going to happen though, because there is less money in it and the fans don't control the money.<br><br>But, there is almost no one outside of Columbus that actually thinks OSU should have been at the top. How do you judge a team that doesn't play strong opponents?<br><br>We're finally at the point in the season where things are getting pretty clear. If we go back to the third week of the season your Penn State was 3-0 and ranked in the top ten. Of course now we look and see that those three teams were Florida International, Notre Dame and Buffalo. Penn State went on to lose pretty much every important game from there on out.<br><br>Ohio State, like Kanas, like Arizona State, had its most difficult games at the end of the season. OSU crumpled, Arizona State crumpled, and we have yet to see what happens to KU. Right now it is entirely justified (by the current flawed system) for them to stay out of the top two rankings. If they win over the next two weeks they will have a legitimate beef with the BCS (get in line).<br><br>
but we were ranked behind OU in the human polls last week and ahead of them in the final BCS poll for last week because it also considers some specialized computer formula. so, anything is possible depending on how close the computer rankings are. like you, i don't see it happening either.<br><br>the coaches gave us almost as many votes as OU this week and OU had a bigger lead last week in the coaches poll. in fact, we're barely more than 100 points behind #1 LSU. things are close.<br><br>
