    We barely held on to beat a mediocre Purdue team without it's top 5 or 6 players. If we don't start moving people off the line on offense, we are going to finish the year at .500. Maybe worse.
    Yes, I did win the Gopherhole 2016 Bracket Challenge - Yes, it was a total fluke.

    I doubt they are truly a top 25 team, but at the same time they are 4-0. Above USC? Above KSU? Michican't State didn't look too strong. Texass A&M? I'm not saying they should be ranked, but the question is who do the voters vote for? Wake? Oklahoma State?
    Personally I don't think they are ready to be ranked, but showing the ability. Maybe 1 or 2 more weeks undefeated.

    We seem like a 25-35 rank team

    Cyclones won't get any votes after losing to Baylor, Mississippi State should not receive votes after losing, Wazzu another...Gophs should be a top 35 team in this weeks ap poll...

    take care of bizness vs Illini!

    Undefeated after Nebby and they crack the polls. Win impressively before then, probably sooner.

    Yeah I know, and I said that somewhat sarcastically. Obviously I’d prefer to be 10-0 and ranked on the way to the CFP, but I’m a superstitious Gopher.

    So, you're saying that this victory has an asterisk next to it because we didn't see the Purdue team as you would have liked to see. Okay. Bite me. The team kicked butt in passing and you blame it on injuries and the lack of the opposing starting qb. With reasoning ability like that, I worry for our nation and this board. 14 teams remain undefeated and we are not going to consider our record after 4 games because the 4th team we played had some boo boos and their best quarterback didn't play. Well, where is Annexstad right now? Oops, he is injured and our second string QB stomped on their throat, so we should discount that because it is Purdue, and they should not be respected because that had boo boos on some first string dudes.

    I need a beer just to forget how creative humanity can be in creating excuses for being victorious. We won the war, but it wasn't a real victory because the French didn't have a real army to liberate Paris! No, no, Waterloo didn't count, because Napoleon could not see the entire battlefield and had the stomach flu! The victory at Midway didn't count, because we intercepted and decoded their cyphers and their battle wagons were never deployed. It just wasn't a fair fight!

    Well we didn't have Mo. That must count for something.

    No. Look at who were ahead of Gophs last week. Would need to leapfrog a bunch of teams.

    And, many of those teams have losses. And, we have votes already. Just one or two more giving us status and we are in.

    But the way the human polls work, all of those Iowa State votes will go directly to Baylor. The AP poll, in particular has several voters that just always put half of the Big 12 in their Top 25 regardless of any other factors.

    Same with K-State if they lose. OK State will get all of those votes.

    Not this week and probably not next week either. I think we get a couple more votes this week. Next week if we win we will be one of the top vote getters on the outside of top 25 at 5-0
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Goldmember’s prediction for the AP Poll tomorrow:

    Alabama, Ohio State, Penn State and Iowa should all climb one spot. But I doubt they will. No changes 1-14.

    15. Washington
    16. Utah (if they win)
    17. Boise State
    18. Michigan
    19. UCF
    20. Michigan State
    21. California
    22. SMU
    23. Oklahoma State (if they win)
    24. Virginia
    25. Texas A&M

    Others receiving votes:
    (50-99):Wake Forest, Arizona State, USC
    (20-50): Army, Memphis, Appalachian St, Baylor
    (10-20): Missouri, Minnesota
    (<10): Colorado, Tulane
