    Well guys, they're dropping like flies in the bottom tier of the Top 25. Where do you fancy the Buckeyes being ranked this week?

    I don't know. Without having played a game this week, I still doubt the Buckeyes will be ranked.

    Well, we had 16 top 25 votes last week in the Coaches poll. (Florida had 25).
    We might be ranked by Monday.

    I think if Texas El Paso and Oklahoma State lose, we could come in as high as 23 but will definitely be ranked.

    Let's take a look at how teams 20-25 have done or are doing so far:

    #20 - Wisconsin (idle)
    #21 - West Virginia (lost to Pitt)
    #22 - Texas A&M (lost to #5 Texas 26-13)
    #23 - Oklahoma State (at Texas Tech)
    #24 - UTEP (at Tulsa)
    #25 - Florida (idle)
    ------------------------------------------
    #26 - Bowling Green (idle)
    #27 - Ohio State (idle)
    #28 - Pittsburgh (beat #21 WVU)
    #29 - Purdue (idle)
    #30 - Alabama (idle)

    Although we should jump West Virginia, Pitt will jump us be cause they won while we were idle (Pitt was ranked only a few points behind us). No sure how far Texas A&M will fall seeing as they played the #5 team pretty tough. Obviously, if both Oklahoma State and UTEP lose, then we'll definitely be ranked again, but Florida will move up, also. We'll jump Bowling Green, who lost to Toledo on Tuesday after the polls came out.

    So, if both Oklahoma State and UTEP lose, here's how I see it:

    #20 - Wisconsin
    #21 - Pittsburgh
    #22 - Florida
    #23 - Ohio State
    #24 - Texas A&M
    #25 - Purdue

    Both UTEP and Oklahoma State lost, so there's no way that we should not be ranked come Monday...and with #19 Boston College's blowout loss, we may jump them, too.

    A great day for the idle Buckeyes to re-enter the rankings!

    In the Coaches Poll, Buckeyes ranked 27. Numbers 19 to 25 all lose!
    In the AP, Buckeyes ranked 27. Numbers 18, 21 to 24 and 26 lose!

    What is interesting is that so many of these teams lost badly to teams with poor records that they should have beaten easily (e.g., Tulsa, Arizona). Only Texas A&M lost to a ranked team.

    I'm sticking with #22 or #23 for the Buckeyes.

    After USC gets upset by ND (I think they are definitely the most vulnerable to the upset, they could have lost to Oregon State and should have lost to Stanford, not very good teams), here's how I see it:

    1. Oklahoma (7) 11-0 1,440 2
    2. Auburn (6) 11-0 1,436 3
    3. California 9-1 1,299 4
    4. Texas 9-1 1,260 5
    5. Utah 11-0 1,246 6
    6. USC 10-1 --- 1
    7. Louisville 8-1 1,021 11
    8. Georgia 8-2 1,092 10
    9. Miami 8-2 950 13
    10. Boise State 10-0 887 12
    11. Virginia Tech 8-2 849 15
    12. LSU 8-2 841 14
    13. Michigan 9-2 813 7
    14. Iowa 9-2 704 17
    15. Tennessee 8-2 684 16
    16. Florida State 8-3 562 8
    17. Wisconsin 9-2 507 9
    18. Virginia 8-2 569 18
    19. Florida 7-4 --- NR
    20. Texas Tech 7-4 --- NR
    21. Ohio State 8-4 --- NR
    22. Texas A&M 7-4 274 22
    23. Notre Dame 7-4 --- NR
    24. West Virginia 8-3 405 21
    25. Pittsburgh 7-3 --- NR

    Bumped out (Bowling Green, Ok State, UTEP, Arizona State)


    I would put Arizona State in at #25 if USC wins.

    I would say between 22-35 but no higher considering we only had 1 impressive all season

    AP Poll/Coaches Poll
    #17/#19 Boston College-lost at home to unranked Syracuse 43-17
    #18/#20 Arizona State-lost at unranked Arizona 34-27
    #21/#21 West Virginia-lost at unranked Pitt 16-13
    #22/#22 Texas A&M-lost at #5 Texas 26-13
    #23/#23 Oklahoma State-lost at unranked Texas Tech 31-15
    #24/#25 UTEP-lost at unranked Tulsa 37-35
    #26/#24 Bowling Green-lost at unranked Toledo 49-41

    That is a bloodletting!

    I think we could move as high as #20-#21.
