I was thinking we might be more in the upper teens but still nice to have that little number by your name
Come on man. 21 AP 19 Coaches is more than reasonable given our body of work and how we looked the first two games. Man can't we just celebrate this blessing? Looking at the teams ahead of us and those behind and given its early 21 is damned impressive.

Your history as a prognosticator leaves a little to be desired.
DL has on his Ram colored glasses as always. Purdue is a P5 team and will be a good win regardless as they wont be in the top 25 by Nov 29. However, they likely can make the tournament and as such will be a great win for our resume.

As to Fla State their size makes them a tough out.

This poll doesn't amount to much more than a pre season poll. Great to see VCU getting some much deserved love though.

Hardly anyone is playing head to head competition right now though. The rankings will mean a great deal more once we get thru the Thanksgiving, and Christmas tournaments, and into January. Just my $.02.

Kind of shows the worth of the poles so early in the season. Ranked is good for marketing but doesn't tell the whole story with regards to quality.
How so? LSU was ranked #23 prior to losing to VCU. They should have dropped out of the Top 25 - Whether it's November or February.

Interesting how Tennessee beats #20 Washington and VCU beats #23 LSU, yet Tennessee leapfrogs VCU in both rankings and VCU has one more win than Tennessee.
