    Default Rankings after this week

    After today, do the Gophers receive enough votes to be in the top 25? Not many undefeated’s left in the league, and we’re averaging well over 30 points a game. Even with that late comeback push Purdue made, we dominated Purdue.

    Rankings in September don't matter.

    That said, we're far enough out of the top 25 that I don't think we will make it in this week, but we should be closer. What most pollsters will know is that we beat a struggling team without their 6 best players for the majority of the game by 7. Yes our O put up passing yards and points. We were better in the run game today, but still not good. We gave up an enormous number of yards on defense, and let them back into a game we had well in hand.

    Not the stuff that catapults a team barely receiving votes into the top 25, but I haven't paid attention to what the ranked teams did today. If enough of them lost, we might squeak in.
    If we want to fix what happened, you need to fire Coyle and Kaler as well.

    Not worthy yet for votes. If we keep rolling for Penn State we may crack it. Penn State is going to be a huge test for us. Did I say HUGE?

    Nope. Our 4th quarter will shy the voters away.

    The Gophers have not played like a top 25 team and don't belong in the top 25 yet.

    Michigan hasn’t looked very Top 25-like either, but there they are at #20.

    Hope they stay out for a while. Seems like whenever a Gophers football/b-ball team gets ranked, they lose.

    Those were Mason and Kill Gopher teams that lost when ranked. Fleck Gophers are a very different breed it appears

    Being ranked helps for recruiting, tickets sales and attendance and local and national media exposure. Having a number next to your name just generates more interest and buzz for the program.

    Agreed. I’d rather be ranked than not
