what a joke. colorado, SDSU, and others are ranked in your top 12 because they lost to decent teams?

The real joke is the program on the hill playing one of the ten worst OOC schedules in the entire country and forfeiting any chance of an at-large NCAA bid before the season even began.

Despite living in Colorado, I'm not a big CU fan, but I think they are going to surprise some people in the PAC this year. They've had a couple of good recruiting classes and Tad Boyle is an under-rated coach -- he seems to be getting the most out of the talent he has.

I understand your point, but it wasn't because they lost to good teams - it was because they were very competitive in those games. With the season being so short and most of these teams having played really bad competition, a close loss to a good team counts for more than beating a team no one has heard of by 20 points.

As the weeks go along, we will have a lot more to judge the teams by. We could always take a shortcut, not do any unique research, and just copy the rankings of the polls - but we're better than that.

The feedback is appreciated though - either way!

You have to admit you are putting a lot of weight on a 12-point loss to a barely-ranked team.
