How do things work?  Iowa State looses at home to Iowa and they move down to 14.  Indiana looses on the road to Iowa and they can't sniff the rankings.  Is there something I am missing?  Is it my Hoosier glasses?

Optics of the game. Even though Iowa was in control yesterday, State at least kept the score respectable. IU was never in the game v the Hawkeyes.

Iowa St gotta be lower than 14 though, I feel.

I'll check more into it tomorrow. 

I mean.. UNI took them to the brink and they were fairly handled yesterday. I'm not saying unranked, 14 seems high though. 

Exactly.  They really weren't competitive with Iowa.  The Hawkeyes manhandled them on both sides of the ball.  With a decent qb, Iowa scores 50.  Coupled with the struggle against UNI, it just goes to show polls aren't really about the best teams.

Preseason polls are the problem. Zero reason we need to have those.

I don’t think  we deserve to be ranked! We lose embarrassingly bad to Iowa. Beat a Idaho team that who cares, then give a game to Cincy away. Our offense couldn’t score 3 times inside the 10. What top twenty five team does that. 
I would think the big question is how long do we stay with Penix! I would think the team is losing faith in him!

Penix is an easy guy to root for. For being a “flashy” kind of athlete, he’s usually the first to defer credit when it’s given. And despite his struggles, it doesn’t look like he’s lost his confidence. 
 

If the team hasn’t lost confidence in him, that says a lot about him. Despite him not being at his best, he’s still the guy they want to follow into battle.

There was a video IU put out a few weeks ago. As players were coming off the field after practice, someone was asking them who they'd like to be stranded with on a desert island. One of the guys said they'd like to be stuck with Penix because they knew everybody would try to find him.

They respect him, and know how important he is to IU football. Even though he's struggled a ton, I think they're still all behind him.

Now how would CBS bill those early season games without some fake generic rankings lol. I mean people can't be trusted to tune in unless they see a number next to a name.
