53% chance of 6 wins, fwiw. That matches my eyeball estimate.
I’m down…….NDState has some room. Go Big Red. We are going to win some games!!
What say you:
10/02 Northwestern
10/09 Michigan
10/16 @ Minnesota
10/30 Purdue
11/06 Ohio St.
11/20 @ Wisconsin
11/26 Iowa

Weird rankings.

Here's some of the many oddities in the current FPI.

1-2 Wisconsin with the one win over Eastern Michigan is ranked just behind Nebraska at #27

Meanwhile, 4-0 Oklahoma State is #38 -- with a win at Boise and a win yesterday over #25 (AP) Kansas State.

4-0 Baylor is 31st -- while the team they just beat -- 2-2 Iowa State -- is #12. For that matter, Iowa State is also ranked well ahead of the other team they lost to -- Iowa. Explain that logic.

The stinking 2-2 Miami Hurricanes -- the team we were poking fun at after Michigan State beat em by 21 -- is ranked two spots ahead of Nebraska at #24 -- is that really the 24th best team in the nation??!

Texas is #8. The team that beat the Horns handily -- 4-0 Arkansas (who also has a win over Texas A&M) -- is 6 spots below Texas. Also, 4-0 Oregon is behind Texas with a win in Columbus!? Does the Longhorn Network operate the FPI?

This poll is full of holes that defy logic. Basically, it's garbage. Maybe it will correct itself as the season progresses.

posters will cling to anything that allows them to feel good about what is happening.
