It could go higher. The Gophers don't have any chances between now and PSU to get a big win, but there's also 3 weeks of attrition above us too. I guess we'll see if the pollsters let us keep rising by default.That won't happen. But IF (one game at a time) they win the next two, I could see it shaking up to a high of about #15. We were #17 when 2008 went downhill if I recall.
It could, but at some point the teams losing just won’t drop much if everyone starts going down or other teams will leapfrog us. We won’t get any popularity points beating Rutgers and not many beating Maryland.It could go higher.

We were higher than 20 in the Coaches Poll in 2008 before **** hit the fan.Here is a good website for checking our AP poll history:
The last time we were ranked any higher than #20 (which is conceivable with a Rutgers win and a loss above us) was September 25, 2005 (at #18).
Yeah, beating Penn State would definitely put us there, as well as cement the idea of being 11-0 going into the Wisconsin game into my mind....If we continue to get better every week like we have, I think my chili will be boiling over when the Penn State game happens.If we win our next three we will be ranked in the top 10.
