Overreaction Monday errrr Tuesday....

All the way up to #11 in the AP polls?!? I don't know about all that. I loved the result the other night and am excited about what this season holds now, but #11 in the country?

<shrugs shoulders>

On one hand we have had a knack for handling top ranked teams. On the other, we usually pounce early in those games and then go into turtle mode. This time, we did the same and then faced some adversity and overcame it. We don't do that the last two years.

I am waiting to see how we handle success and the road before I get too excited about the season. Don't get me wrong I am pumped about what I saw on Sunday.

What I am looking for the next few weeks...
I want to see Merrick getting a lot of snaps against UTEP and see some of the younger talent get some playing time... i.e. we come out and jump all over UTEP. Can this coaching staff and team handle the hangover...?

A road win against Cal. Doesn't have to be a mud hole event, but we need to show that we can handle going on the road with increasing expectations. Can this coaching staff and team be ready to play on the road against a lesser opponent?

Winning the conference opener on the road. We will be going against an opponent has vastly more experience facing spread attack teams. Can this coaching staff and team make the adjustments needed to overcome adversity that we always seem to face against OKState?

I don't like it, either.

I would prefer that this team keep that chip on their shoulder and take it week by week.

They seem to have the leadership now that they were lacking before to prevent that, but last year we railroaded Oklahoma and then were shut out by Iowa State three weeks later.

Just keep playing.

Fair enough, but what if Michigan State stomps ND in two weeks? Do we then drop because our win against them is maybe not so impressive, in retrospect?

Personally I think that if we're going to have these polls this early then they probably should be fluid - extremely fluid, in fact - until the sample size reaches some sort of critical mass.

Yeah in the grand scheme of things the polls shouldn't matter this early. But a early jump like this is what happened a couple years ago with A&M and then in turn several other teams got overrated based on beating a highly rated A&M that should have never been ranked there. We'll see, just thought that was a massive jump. I think somewhere in the 15-20 range is a little more appropriate.

I guess I don't understand the butt hurt. If there are gonna be rankings, then by God I want to be on top. Recruits love a front runner. Let's get up top, if we drop a game, we are still close to the top.
It's like saying you don't want to fuck the hottest girl on campus because you are just a freshman,and the hot girls are for upperclassmen. Quit whining, and give that chick the D. She wants it. You want her to have it. Go in bareback.

Don't think anybody is butt hurt at all. Again these things have a way of correcting themselves as the season goes on, so not a huge deal. If we're really that legit we'll know shortly.

Terrible analogy on the girl. Just not even close.

Just read there is a good chance 4 TX OL miss this game with injury.

Probably by design due to the opponent but not ideal.
