HERO sports ranking....
Hero Sports Ranking

Are you f'ing kidding me?!?! 3rd??
I love the coverage these guys do, but things like this really make me lose credibility for them. (*cough* SHSU last year)

Oh yeah, and they don't even have our logo.
National Champions, folks.

RE: HERO sports ranking....
I'm not sure what media poll they're referring to. We're the unanimous #1 right now in both the coaches and stats polls.

I do think their site's SOS rating of 21st is what is holding us back in what appears to be a computer/formula poll. It looks like it's taking into account your SOS future and not just the games you've played so far. Massey says our SOS future is 36th right now.

We're going to get a tougher SOS shake this season because our toughest games are all at home outside of ECU.

It's not Brian or the other guy, per below they rank us at the top. They may be using some sort of flawed algorithm because that media ranking 3 teams above NDSU, and RU above SDSU, not to mention Citadel above us.

I know their columnists have us number 1, but their own ranking system is on the main page. If it is so flawed, why do they continue to use it? SHSU was ranked #1 last year if that gives you any indication. Perhaps they should fix their algorithm because it clearly isn't working. The point is to be the most accurate, not the most incorrect. Plus if your columnists are contradicting their own site's poll, you would think perhaps they need to do something.

This isn't a single year problem. This was an issue last year too... especially heading into the playoffs. SHSU was #1 on the HERO poll last year as well as heading into the playoffs.
Obviously the poll isn't being used anywhere. My point is it's inaccurate and it doesn't make them look good when their poll is so wrong. Rather than fixing it, they just say it is what it is even though their own people disagree with it.
