So I've yet to actually check the polls until today - mostly because I don't really care anymore, I just want us to play hard every single game, which will hopefully result in W's - and I noticed that the Yahoo user rankings had UM at #5!!!
"Pardon?" I remarked with a bewildered look on my face. I then refreshed the page as I had assumed the nerves that connect my eyes to my brain were deceiving me. But no, lo and behold, UM had climbed 20 POSITIONS up to #5.
Now, I love UM and think this team is pretty good. But there is NO WAY they are the #5 team. Yes, I realize that this is based on Yahoo! user rankings, but it is still "inconceivable" (name that movie) to me that so many people could rank UM that high, even given their success this season.
If it's a joke or sorts, awesome, I applaud it. BUT, if that many UM fans think our team is worthy of that ranking, I'm pretty sure they're drinking a bit too much of the blue kool-aid.
Whatever the case may be, I found it intriguing and thought I would share. Thoughts??
EDIT: Also, PSU is #1. Words fail me on that one, I'll leave it to others to comment on that.
