Baylor drops five spots and Wiscy stays the same with 4 losses. I'm scratching my head.

I guess the logic being Wiscy *almost* beat #5 Oregon while Baylor lost soundly to #4 Georgia and their entire conference got exposed as the frauds that they are?
Still. I don't know why Wisconsin would be ranked ahead of us. Yes they beat Michigan and we didn't but they lost four freakin' games. At some point that should matter more than beating #18 at home in September.

Other than that - and the fact that Georgia and Florida are comically overrated - I have a hard time getting too worked up about any of these. We really ought to be in the top ten but I guess we pissed that away on a bad night in Ann Arbor.

Also: Is it normal to have seven G5s in the Top 25? That's more than the ACC, Pac-12 and Big 12, combined.

I have to think it’s more about their wins. They beat two good teams in Minnesota and Michigan. They lost by one to Oregon and were evenly matched. The only team that ran them off the field was OSU (twice).

ND just doesn’t have any legit wins this year. No one is ever going to give credit for beating Navy. That’s just the reality. And getting manhandled by Michigan is not the same as OSU. They are a tier or two apart in talent.

Say what you want, but it's 4, I repeat 4 losses. I just realized that Minnesota also jumped over us. No love for rolling ISU.

Minnesota had an OOC slate of Georgia Southern, Fresno State, and South Dakota State.

They beat South Dakota State by one score. That was their most convincing win. They needed OT to beat Fresno State after a tying TD with seconds left, and they needed a go-ahead TD with 13 seconds left to beat Georgia Southern.

They played 4 teams with a pulse and that's what they're getting measured on. Which is fine, but it just cracks me up that the only team that EVER gets criticized for "how" they win and lose is Notre Dame. We hear it every year about "style points" but no one pays attention to other teams or judges them the same. Can you imagine if ND played three games like the above?

Wisconsin with 4 losses being ahead of Notre Dame is just comical. People are so fixated on ND's loss to Michigan... I dunno why its not getting treated like Ohio State laying an egg against Purdue, etc. There's a lot of weird Big Ten machismo in this final poll.

A great hypothetical, IMO, is "what would ND be ranked if they did the same thing to overrated Utah or Baylor?" I think the answer is 6-10, probably 9th. That's why playing Iowa State was a worst case scenario... there was no way to ever get credit for that win, no matter how well ND played. An absolute shame that ND did not get a crack at a legit opponent thanks to the stupidity of conference bowl tie-ins dictating opponents.
