Rick Bozich moved us down 3 spots? >:(

I thought Bozich had us unranked last week.

Davis moved us down 2.

I’m really trying to think objectively and I can’t see how the resumes of the 17 teams are better than ours. I do think that playing only one true road game (and getting crushed) is holding us back. Let’s go to work and win some conference road games!

Right or wrong that is not how polls werk.  Most times someone ahead of you has to lose.  It was a week of ranked teams not playing or winning.  Thats how it goes.

Jumping or leapfrogging teams in the polls is faily uncommon.  Seems you have to beat a top 5 team is the only way you leapfrog teams to any significant degree.  Ascension innthe polls is a factor of continuing to win as those teams directly ahead of you lose.  Right or wrong its how it has historically worked.  I have no issue with being “underranked” (not sure that we are) as id prefer not to have that much of a bigger target on our back as we go out on the road in the BE

To repeat my post from 5 pages ago, just sayin

Went through and checked, we are still unranked by three ballots: Damien Sordelett (Liberty beat writer for The News & Advance), Jesse Newell (Kansas beat writer for Kansas City Star), and Scott Wolf (USC beat writer for LA Daily News)

Our highest rank was #10 and given to us by Shannon Ryan of the Chicago Tribune.

Alright people you know what to do. Time to make the invisible hand of scoop known. Everyone go subscribe to the Chicago Tribune. If you have subscriptions to the News & Advance, KC Star, or LA Daily News cancel them. Follow up with a letter writing campaign to make sure they know why.

   I just read Shannon Ryan’s coverage of the Busch Bragging Rights game between the Illini and Missouri.  I remembered your post here, and....

   In keeping with the spirit of the season, I just emailed her a note of “Thanks” for acknowledging the recent exploits of our beloved WarriorEagles by rewarding us with a #10 ranking.

 In my email, I touched on how hard it is for private schools not named Duke to get our just recognition. I also suggested some Tribune coverage of both the huge recent successes of Val Ackerman and of the reincarnated league as a whole.

Agreed, and frankly I was stunned how far we moved up last week, but the Buffalo win validated it so believe we are just settling in. Arizona state beating Kansas didn't help. Indiana still too close behind as well - I don't like having a team that crushed you that close - not that it really matters.

That Damien sordelett is an idiot. We have three top 25 wins from his ballot.

As a general rule, Marquette gets no love from Chicago media, even though it is the out-of-state private university with the most Illinois alumni except for Notre Dame.  It annoys me that the morning news show will have the score from the ND game or even the Valparaiso game on the scroll, but not MU.

Listen, MU is in the top 25... that’s all that really matters until the s-curve is drawn. 
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

It doesn't make sense that the varmints are ranked better than Marquette.  We have played a tougher schedule and beat them.

We've played similar schedules and and the win was at home. UW has a great resume. MU is under ranked right now. UW deserves to be ranked very well.

We needed OT to beat them at home. I would understand someone who thinks that because of that they would beat us on a neutral floor.

We are ranked just fine.  We are 1-2 outside of the FF.  We have 2 losses and 4 solid wins.  We should be ranked somewhere between 15 and 20, and we're ranked 18.  We're right where we deserve to be.

The number in the win column is what is really important.

I thought the next game was all that is important?

Nope.  That's the most important game of the season, though.

MU is definitely ND's second fiddle, but they do get occasional coverage in the Tribune.

When we were kickin' arse and takin' prisoners and MU alum Dan McGrath was Tribune sports editor, we got some very nice coverage. They treated us as the home team for awhile there.

ASU goes down to known powerhouse Princeton. I imagine they drop out of the polls this coming week.

Marquette at minimum 17 on Monday. Should be higher.
