RE: USA Today NCAAF Week3 re-rank
Marshalls 17 pt loss wasnt that bad. They were nearly leading by 10 going in to the half. Some unfortunate circumstances turned the tide, which is understandable. But overall the performance against the ACC's apparent number 1 or 2 team, they showed some positives. CUSA may have their hands full with the HERD this year if they continue to get better. Although a home loss this week to Kent St. should begin to sharpen the etch-a-sketch, and transform my opinion.

Houston beat a lower ranked team and went up 18 spots, makes no sense

you can thank teams like LaTech and WKU for 2 of the 18 spots. These early rankings have a high margin of error. They are mostly based on early expectations, then as 5+ games are played, start to have substance.

Easily. Maybe Miami & VT too. We'll see, it's still early.

Jumped: Florida(-13), Arkansas(-15), stAte(-7), aTm(-15), WKU(-32) , BYU(no change), Wyoming(-9), Pitt(-6), Kentucky(-8), Northwestern(-35), Ohio(-31), and La Tech(-42) based on their losses.

Also jumped: Tulsa, TTU, UCF, Texas, ODU, WVU, and Colorado State based on less impressive wins.

This is the most positive the polls have been to MU in years. I do not know whether we are deserving of that high of a spot yet, but I think our 3 year run of 10+ wins has somewhat improved the image of Marshall football.
