Iowa abuses Penn State at their place, yet the AP has them at 13 and PSU @ 15. The USA today/Coaches poll somehow has PSU @13 and Iowa @ 17!

Does this make sense? PSU has beaten Akron, Syracuse and Temple,
(all scary teams) and lost at home to Iowa, how are they even in the top 25?

preseason and any poll through the 4th week of the season should NOT be included in bcs rankings and any decision that matters because its based solely on BIG name schools that have proven nothing besides they were good in years previous. the only thing they rank is a popularity contest

From the Republic:

ASU's first votes (4) in the Associated Press poll are from Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News. He has the Sun Devils at No. 22 in his top 25 this week.

Yes, the polls are a joke. And so is Wilner. Bitter from your days in Tucson, Jon?
