Absolutely ridiculous we still have yet to be ranked. The NCAA rankings put way to much stock in offense and not enough in defense. Yeah we haven't really beat anyone and lost to ND (barely), but we have the best rated defense in the country. Are you telling me a 6-1 record with the best rated defense in the country is not worth a top 25 spot?

You could score 70 points a game but give up 68 points a game with a 6-1 record amd you'll be a top 15 team.

Ridiculous.

QB Jayru Campbell chose MSU over 'Bama, Notre Dame and Wisconsin. This kid is exciting to watch. 6'3" and only 16? 17? Electric and can't wait to see him dress up for us. So far, he's our only 2015 commit.

Shouldnt be too surprised, at least with not being ranked in the AP poll. After all they let people like Drew Sharp have a vote. The same Drew Sharp that said that both Michigan and MSU were "easily the worst 1 loss teams in the nation."

How have Burbridge and Arnett been doing for you guys?

Arnett has barely seen the field but in his time, he barely gets targeted. Burbridge drops everything, but he's young. Fowler and Lippett has been stepping up and Kings remains inconsistent like everyone else but is our top target.

Saw that in regards to Sharp. He's always held hometown teams to a higher standard, not much differently than Mike Valenti, though I'm a huge Valenti fan.

Polls are nearly irrelevant to us. With our schedule and not being a traditional power, we're not going to get an at large BCS bid. It's Rose Bowl or likely some Orlando bowl game again.

Being ranked does help with exposure from week to week though.

main reason i want us ranked is so i can set my score app to top 25 and still find our game. But yeah its rose bowl or bust as far as BCS games are concerned. I dont think we could make a BCS at large with 2 losses, not enough cache

Nah. We'll be fine. The defense won't let up, and the offense is getting better. I mean, it still sucks horribly, but nto as horribly as before, which is nice, I guess.



Saw we got another Bullough in the above post. Max and Riley's bro or a cousin?

Little brother. Plays one of the backs on offense (they run a stupid wing-T) and S on defense, at least the one time I saw him play. Not sure what he'll play for you guys, I would assume either SS or OLB.
