So....What are we ranked on Monday - 11/11/19
« on: January 14, 2012, 03:48:04 PM »
I say 17.

Let's use this thread to consolidate the weekly discussion on where MU is ranked each Monday in 2011-12.

Who cares? Why does anyone think this is important? Let your play in March do the rankings.

Its completely irrelevant that were ranked right now, we may not even have what qualifies as a quality win yet. Madison will become on (hopefully) when they get their act together as they always do, but right now our next best win is Washington...

Aww...  This comment was so great, I immediately, involuntarily showed my support for MU by tossing my cookies just like Junior.
You actually have a degree from Marquette?

Quote from: muguru
No...and after reading many many psosts from people on this board that do...I have to say I'm MUCH better off, if this is the type of "intelligence" a degree from MU gets you. It sure is on full display I will say that.

Why do people hate on others who are interested in the rankings? I realize it is all relative but it is a cool way to look at what the perception is about MU as well as how we'd match up against other ranked teams. If you don't care about the rankings why post on this thread.

Anyways, I'll step off the soapbox and say 23-24 is our ranking.

If we can beat UL on Monday I will be fine if we are unranked!!! Beating UL way more important than our ranking.

If you do not live in Milwaukee then a ranking means highlights on ESPN and it's better for recruiting.

College and professional athletics, at their essence, are children's games played by young adults for the spectator's entertainment. In the grand scheme of the world, none of us should care about any of the games and none of it is relatively important in the least.

But we do care because we as fans like to see the institutions and teams we root for do well. One of the ways we can gauge how Marquette is doing is by the the two major polls. One of those polls is by the writers who cover the sport as journalists more extensively than any of us could. The other is by the coaches who coach the sport at a higher level than any of us could. So when Marquette, our school and our team, is doing well in the polls, well, it matters to us. And on a small level it is important as it keeps us connected and gives us entertainment.

Also, on a more practical level, if a team is ranked for most of the season, it is a lot more likely that the selection committee will look favorably on them and put them in the tournament. There are not a lot of slots given to unranked teams that do not win their conference's automatic bid.

In addition, ranked teams get vastly more media exposure. This media exposure leads to greater ticket sales and more merchandise sales. It also helps recruit not just athletes, but students who may not otherwise consider Marquette for college.

So it does matter, in a sense. In fact, it matters a lot.

+1, good post.

Being ranked is the most important thing a team can do before the tourney.  To say it does not matter means the poster doesn't know what they are talk about.

Consider this

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/g/a/2012/01/13/bloomberg_articlesLXR71A0YHQ0X01-LXR9Q.DTL

Stanford University received an estimated 36,744 applications for freshman admission -- a record -- as the school's athletics success drummed up attention. ... Stanford, near Palo Alto, California, admitted 7.1 percent of its applicants for the 2011-2012 academic year. Admissions officials had speculated that the tough competition to win a seat combined with reinstated early acceptance programs at Harvard University and Princeton University might have deterred some students from applying to Stanford, Patterson said today in an interview.  "It's a little more than we anticipated," Patterson said. "Stanford did very well in football and Andrew Luck was a leader for the university."  Luck, the Stanford Cardinals quarterback and a two-time Heisman Trophy runner-up, is considered a top National Football League prospect.

---

In my book Stanford is the number 1 academic school in the country and being ranked in football mattered A LOT to them.  More so then their bowl game (which they lost).

So, again, please stop embarrassing yourself by saying being ranked does not matter.

Chief, lighten up. Everyone knows that polls aren't accurate.  But, they do count.

Couldnt agree more. Valid points. MU should be ranked 20 with a win Monday.
