Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

Texas at 2-5 is even worse! All about reputation not what is actually happening on the field. And it's not like we are playing pushovers! I don't care if a team Should be good or WILL BE good later, the current poll to me is suppossed to be about CURRENT results!
Tough for the mid or small programs to get any repsect. And when you finally do, one loss and you are out of the poll - unlike losing 5 of first 7 if you are a BigBoy program.

Texas is 2-5 too. Guess you don't have to win often to be one of the best teams in the nation.

Texas got swept by Stanford (#1 team in the country) and TCU has only lost to ranked teams. We beat a mid-pack SEC squad and Manhattan… I have legitimate faith in FAU this year and I know we will be ranked in the top 25 by seasons end. Preseason and first month rankings for baseball are stacked with SEC, California, Texas and big Florida schools. They play the best baseball, with the most competition, in those states and there's no reason why if you lose to those teams in the early part of the year, you should fall that far in the rankings.

I agree with the competition part but I also beleive they should be in the "also receiving votes" category until they start to win, then they wiill jump up quickly as the one or two losses here and there kill small programs chances of being ranked.
