Minnesota gets 13 pts, so it’s not like they are totally forgotten.
I thought Northwestern was somewhat slighted.
Sorry to see ND leave the poll.
Oh, thanks for the clarification. I didn't know how that works or how many AP writers get to vote (or, I should say, contribute points).Technically it’s pts, not votes.
The Gophers got 13 pts, so that could mean they’re the 25th team on 13 ballots, or the 13th in one ballot, or most likely some combination in between. There’s a link out there somewhere that shows how everyone voted.
When you say “votes” it makes it seem like 13 people voted for the Gophers. Not necessarily or even likely.
As far as the AP rankings go, better to be 26th and rising than 12th and falling.
Miami rejoins at #24
Texas joins in at #25
Michigan St and South Dakota drop out.
Texas edges out Minnesota for a place in the Top 25 by one point.
I have a feeling Minnesota will be back in Top 25 if they beat Penn St. How long they stay there is anybody’s guess.
Not sure. Maryland is going to be good in the Big Ten in any event, and will rank fairly high on the AP Top 25 (barring some kind of disaster in their Big-Ten season).Maryland rose a spot. How does it compare to being #23 and falling off?
