    I don't care what anyone says, those rankings are not correct. OU ranked 7? USC 3? Florida 4? Georgia 9? I don't know what the formula is but I'm going to say it's bogus.

    Yeah, I noticed we are behind Ark. State. But then I also noticed we are AHEAD of Kansas State! How does that work? Makes no sense to me either.

    Yeah, it's nice to see the Cajuns ranked in the 60s. But I'm a realist and the reality is that this poll is bogus. Arkie State ahead of the Cajuns? I don't think so.

    i hope we can have an other 8 win season like in '93. I think the '92 season the cajuns only won 3 games and come back in '93 to win 8. I hope history repeats its self, but not the part where the Cajuns share a conference title and get stiffed from the Nevada bowl.

    And it is statistically proven that you have a 95% chance of beating the best when you mix in at least one figure four.

    You should never look at computer rankings until the season is over... these computers take into account strength of schedule of games PLAYED... So if you have more difficult games left on the schedule (troy) then you ranking should go up...

    Its easy. Strength of schedule and wins vs those opponents. ArkState beat Texas A&M early in the year. That by itself boost a team in the Sun Belt everything else being equal.

    Over the past couple years, I put together a BCS type rating for our baseball league. You would be surprised how much an opponents winning percentage affects these types of polls.
