    Can someone explain to me that a 3-2 Colorado team, who lost to a 19th ranked team and a 26th (others votes) and beat the #3 team is ranked below a team that lost to:

    unranked to an only 5 votes Michigan, and an unranked Illinois who is 29 in others getting votes and beat the following teams:

    Buffalo (unranked)
    Fla Intl (unranked)
    Notre Dame... (ranked #1 in the nation by Regis Philbin)

    how is that team ranked ahead of us????

    who is that team?

    Who cares, it matters more at the end of the season.

    It's bull**** that Nebraska is #25, but this week will be their last top 25 ranking for a while.

    Sorry fusker fans, you know I go through withdrawls if I don't mention something negative about Nebraska in a thread.:smile2:

    if NU loses, you'll be right.

    NU could go 0 for October.

    seriously.

    Our schedule will let us move up - ranked teams ahead - gotta crush the doormats and maybe hold to less than 10 points a game. Just gotta win and as hard as this sounds hope the rest of opponents win as well - until they meet the Buffs - maybe high teens by season end?????

    we didn't start ranked and then we lost 2 games--- it is very hard to get into the top 25 that way, even with the big win over ou. don't apply logic to it-- it just has to do with the way they poll.

    really, they shouldn't do the first poll until like game 4 or game 5 is over. then, it would be a better gauge of reality.

    for our Buffs to get ranked, i think they'll make an appearance in the 20-25 range if they win the next 2 games. a win over ku won't move them up much i don't think. then, if they get thru tech and mizzery, you'll see a nice pop up the rankings--- 2 well-regarded and maybe ranked teams and CU on a nice win streak.

    win out until the b12 champ. game and we could see our Buffs as high as 10th i think. win that game and maybe even jump to 6-8. win the bcs game and a top 5 finish is not out of the realm of possibility

    for now, i just want to see them beat baylor!

    Unless we are in the top 10, I don't care about rankings. After 10 it doesn't really mean anything. jmo.

    BTW huck the fuskers!

    I won't get too wrapped up in rankings just yet. If we finish the year ranked in the top 25 I'll be very happy. That'll mean a lot for recruiting and for season ticket sales next year.

    The conference schedule is going to be tough, but we just beat the team everybody thought was the class of the league. Based on that, there's no reason to suspect we can't win the rest of our games.

    If we win the next two, we'll be ranked.

    Just gotta hope the rest of the B12 N makes a good showing - being in Boise I know beating a doormat does little good. Boise State would still be on the radar but for the lose to UW - now BSU is hosed as no quality opponents coming up except Hawaii; if you are off the radar you get no love until you win against quality teams - a loss to a good team can be tolerated to make top 15-25. I note ASU is 5 - 0 and FSU is 3-1. That helps. I agree ranking esp at season end help w recruiting. Helps the sales pitch alot.
