I’ve supported the team for 45 years. I hope I’m not running out of time.

We deserve to finish in the top 25. We lost to two very good teams, both on the road, one in OT and the other with our starting QB, RB and LB out.

We blew out the CUSA runner up and won our conference. I’m not interested in humility. We are one of the best 25 teams in the country, it’s undeniable.

UNDENIABLE....If Ohio State can get blown out by Purdue and not fall, A loss to Georgia Southern with QB, RB and LB out should not hurt our top 25 spot. Our overtime loss at PennSt. Should only move us up not down. Home team gets 3 points and we covered that.

Pollsters never move teams up based on a loss. A loss is a loss and not all wins are equal enough say because we won by 40 over a bad team that it should matter.

We may feel this way (and I believe we can beat a few ranked teams) but the bottom line is they are not, and probably should not, rank a G5 team who has not beaten a ranked team or a P5 team at all.

Most ranked teams have a good backup QB who could have come in and beat Georgia Southern and we did not do that. We are going to move up some but there are teams like Iowa and Utah State who had a more impressive win than we did in their bowl and I am sure the voters will reward them. North Texas was receiving votes most of the year and they could not hang with Utah State while Iowa beat a top 20 ranked team. We also have to deal with Cincinnati, Northwestern, and Stanford winning while Boise State game was cancelled.

Keep this in mind. #25 Iowa State lost to #12 Washington State by just 2 points. With your logic they should move up 5-10 spots but we all know they will not be ranked now.

The only reason I think we move up some is because Iowa State, Missouri, and NC State all lost. If voters drop Boise because they were getting beat early then maybe we move up to 26-27 but just looking at the math I don't see how we get over that hump. No reason to keep dwelling over something that likely will not happen.

We are 31st in the AP polls so we need 6 teams ahead of us to fall behind us.

1. Missouri lost (they were 24th, we will move ahead of them, so we are at 30)
2. NC State lost (28th, so we are now 29)
3. Cinccy lost (29th, so we are 28th)
4. Iowa State lost (25th, so we are 27th)

I predict with 100% certainty we will be at least 27th in the polls.

Furthermore, I predict we could jump Boise (who didn’t lose but also didn’t win and they were looking awful) at 23, putting us at 26th.

Lastly, I could see Utah falling out due to their loss putting us......

RANKED IN THE POLL TO END THE SEASON.

Hmm, yeah that’s my bad. They did bet VT.

It’ll be close.

Oh well. That just means we don’t have as far to climb to get in next year. If we win for the first 3 weeks, we should be inside and maybe sooner depending on other teams losses

If this isn’t motivation...... Really 26 are you kidding me..... I’d play Army tomorrow and the day after that. For that matter I’d play any of “bottom “ 10 tomorrow. The kids deserved it that defense deserves it.

I had a feeling the VT loss was going to hurt...also, I think BC beats Boise St., but just my opinion...we will never know. Great Season!

Now the fun debate. Who would we beat today who ranked above us? It sucks “ending up” 26 but look at it this way, we are considered in the top 20% of the beat teams in America! That is still strong. Can’t imagine us not beginning next year right there. Like someone said, win the first three and we are solid top 20. The opportunity is there.

Any of the bottom 10..,... on the other hand it is somewhat cool that 3 SunBelt team are in the top 40...

Sunbelt has 3 east division teams with votes. That kind of helps our cause in the long run.
