Guest BasketBull. Posted September 13, 2008 Share Posted September 13, 2008 There's this established echelon in college football, where the press and the coaches, along with the fans, have in their heads who's who and so on -the USCs, the Ohio States...The old guards do not get replaced by the newbies, even when those programs are not doing so well.Ohio State almost lost at home to Ohio and nobody even flinched. On the other hand, they called Kansas' first two games soft and cupcakes. Last year USC got beat by Stanford at home and they wiped that right off.Kansas has had a long history of poor football, while USF is a newbie that got thumped in the Sun Bowl. Result, this year's rankings can't overcome the perception and established echelon. (Hardly anybody talked about what a great game it was last night.)Let's see what happens on Sunday and Monday when the rankings come out, but they may punish Kansas for losing to USF. As for the Bulls, they will probably bump us up a few spots and that's it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
