Aren't they usually out Sunday night?
it's a major award
Games are still going on. There's another game tomorrow too, so I would guess the polls will be updated on Tuesday.
Every Simpsons Ever ....
And you want to see a poll that Michigan won't be in.
We should be top 20-15
Nobody will ever post them on Mgoblog.
And I heard ESPN and Google boycotted the polls this year.
They used to come out in the Monday paper. But now we've got some kind of digital stuff, or something.
we just got an auto-bid to the playoffs with that win.
And guys at RCMB will actually think this comment was serious. Pure comedy over there. I don't post at all but I read whenever I'm in a bad mood and need a pick-me-up.
The SWill is another board STAEE fans love
Any time Monday is a Holiday the poll does not come out on a Sunday but sometime Monday. It's been that way for a while as far as I can remember.
I don't expect us to be ranked already. Maybe if we do well in South Bend.
We won't be ranked. If we win Saturday we can slide in as a #23-#25 probably after that.
If we beat ND we'll be higher than that.
I respectfully disagree. 23-25 seems about right. We've got a lot of fans but a lot more haters. Including some of those that vote.
It would likely boil down to how many teams in that 20-30 range get upset next weekend. ND would drop below us for sure, and 15 SC plays @ 11 Stanford, so one of them will fall as well. And I think we'll be ahead of Washington tomorrow because they had a tough time with a bad Hawaii team.
My guess would be more like 20 if we win, again, depending on how other games shake out.
They gonna hate
Mrh, I'm not sure about that. UM has beaten ND a lot recently, with diminishing returns. Unless they just blow the doors off of the Fighting Irish, bottom 20's seems to be the ceiling for a ranking.
Although I used to have a "can't wait to see the latest top 25!" viewpoint on them, over the last decade (or more) I've adopted the attitude of "who needs 'em!" for about the first half of the season.
Think about it: how can anybody take them seriously, seeing that a good share of the voters in nearly every poll out there either are seriously uninformed/malinformed or simply don't care/don't have the time to take the time it would take to put together a well thought-out ballot.
And then there is this: how can I judge any team based on what they accomplished last season? or based on which players return vs which players need to be replaced?
No matter how much attention a poll voter pays to the system and the games themselves, no way can teams be ranked with any accuracy until having at least a few games under their belts.
And even then, my emotional side somehow just can't wait for the weekly poll...
that does not give a shit about the the polls. We just need to win every week and the polls will be fine. We have the chip on our shoulder and something to prove and that is what is going to make this year so much fucking fun.
Signed in to agree, I grew up knowing nothing but being ranked. If we can keep playing like we did Saturday on defense, and running the ball (yes we played a bad team) the rankings, and more importantly the conference and bowls will take care of them selves.
I wholeheartedly agree. Right now I am more focused on seeing the team progress and gel as a team. I think this weekend will be a good indication of where we stand. If the O-line can provide good pass protection and make some holes, then I will be thinking positive thoughts and start care about the rankings. Although, I would prefere the team is never ranked, so they always hungry and never satisfied and it iseasier for them to do that when they are constantly on the outside looking in.
Polls?? You're talking about polls? Are you kidding me?
I hope we're unranked until we beat MSU.
Although I'd love to be ranked going into this just so we get the game of the week and/or prime time game time...
and shoud move upward. Only if we played better than 39, where we started.
FWIW, you don't have to assume that the OP was asking in order to see where Michigan is ranked. I don't think we will be ranked, and don't really care at this point, but I'm looking forward to the polls to see to movement (or lack thereof) of for a number of other "top" teams after this past weekend.
Exactly. Didn't say anything about M's ranking.
After this week, they come out late Sunday mornings.
georgia get the top spot and some of the top teams should fall a bit based on their games. Alabama and ohio didn't look very good.
Herbie had them there, w/FSU @2.
The poll where Texas A&M moves up to #6 for beating then #9 South Carolina, who, on the other hand, only falls to #13 due to the fact they lost to now highly ranked #6 TA&M - and the self-perpetuating, SEC circle jerk continues on as usual?
I had SC moving up to 8 with the hard fought loss to another SEC team.
Generally a win over 4-8 teams vaults teams upward.
Who cares about week 2 polls?? You think the win over app state moves us into top 25?? It shouldn't.

In the AP, not thinking a huge bump will come. Beat #17 ND at ND? Then we can talk.
Let's wait to be ranked until after we play our OoC schedule. AsU was great and all... But there's still ND, a semi-Trap game with Miami (NTM), and a fairly decent Utah team to be played. I don't want to even be thinking about rankings until conference play starts.
