I think it's a great win for them, but this is the same team that struggled to beat Idaho at home last week. They will probably lose their next two games. @ Stanford and @ Notre Dame. And both of those teams suck too.

Probably a more accurate statement then mine, but still, what a joke.
It's a direct result of the arrogance of college football writers/voters. None of them want to admit that they were wrong about USC. Both USC and Ohio State are the two most overrated teams in the country right now. Should be ranked no higher than 18th right now.

I don't think I'd put Washington in the top 25, but they did play LSU very tough at home in week one. This was not a fluke. I think more than anything it's a reaction to how good people thought USC was rather than how good people really think UW is.

Polls are really fairly meaningless until mid to late season anyway.

The only meaning polls have is publicity and recruiting. Being ranked means your highlights will get more time on SportsCenter and viewed by more recruits.

The only time polls have any tangible meaning is the week before BCS selection day, and there are plenty of people that would argue that process is meaningless itself.

Unfreakingbelievable! 5Decksmissing and I have finally found common ground. The rankings only are for BCS bowl bound teams.

KU should concentrate on winning the North.

Well, you could put Appalachian State into the Division I-A rankings. Ooo.... too soon?

Tech dropping out of the 25 on a tight game on the road is a joke as well. The Red Raiders looked like they haven't dropped off much at all against Texas without Crabtree and a new QB. Our game in Lubbock will be tough. Our best chance at beating a south team may be OU at home.

Look at the bright side. According to CBS Sportsline that will put USC and KU in the Pacific Holiday Bowl!

I am still trying to see how the writers and 'experts' at Fox Sports use their mind...

Kansas blasts duke, yet falls out of the Top 25 power rankings.

Nebraska loses to Virginia Tech yet jumps 8 spots???

Mizzou is ranked 13?

Oklahoma destroys whoever and drops 10 spots...

http://msn.foxsports.com/cfb/powerRankings#tb

Anybody want to figure this out for me?

Keegan has Washington at 11. Only John Adams (Knoxville News Sentinel) had them higher (10).

Pollspeak - Washington (AP)

There is a reason that Sports Journalist Polls are a complete joke.

INCOMPETENCE.


Can you imagine what the NCAA Basketball tournament would look like if one third of the selection committee were made up of Tom Keegans?

*shudder*

the only worse polls are the ones that involve coaches. i have heard several interviews where they ask the head coach about their voting in polls. most have the sid's vote for them because they don't have time or the desire to watch other teams beside their own and their future opponents.
