What are the guesses on what teams will not be in the final T25 poll at the end of the season?

Between Iowa, Wisco and Neb, I am assuming one of those will not be there at the end of the season.

Iowa has 5 road games that are not easy. Wisco has @ OSU and @ Neb. NEB has a very winnable road schedule. My money is on Iowa to drop.

Here's the breakdown of each voter.

 

Highest we are that I can tell:

 

13 by Jim Holder (Tupelo, Mississippi NBC/ABC affiliate)

16 by Connor O Neil (Winston-Salem Journal | Winston-Salem, North Carolina)

 

FWIW, 23 by Chuck Carlton of Dallas Morning News

Feels about right for a preseason poll. Man, if UT can beat LSU (strong chance) and OU (toss up?) and don't slip against any one else, they would be rolling into Fort Worth with a top 4 ranking. I'll be rooting for them until they play us.

 

Love it.

I'd guess Utah, UCF and Syracuse.  The Utes are getting a lot of hype and I think it's setting up to be sort of a "Quest for perfection-like" thing that bedeviled BYU in 2008.  I know that they made the Pac12 championship game last year, but I think they've now got a target on their backs.  UCF, I think, is due not to be the  AAC champ.  And I have my doubts about Syracuse - other than Clemson, the ACC is pretty weak and the Orange might be the other good team there, but I suspect it'll be someone else.  I also don't think Bama, Georgia, LSU and Florida  all will end up in the Top 10.

With only Oregon losing in the Top 25, I don't expect much change in tomorrow's rankings.  Hopefully, no one actually watched our game and only saw the final score.

Looks like highest we got was 13 from Jim Holder (WTVA-Tupelo / Tupelo, Columbus, Oxford, Starkville Mississippi)

We should climb into the Top 25 going to Purdue. Syracuse, Nebraska, and Stanford all lost, and we’re sitting at 27/28 in the AP.

Doubtful this week because we didn't play.  I'm thinking USC, UNC and Maryland will fill those spots with impressive W's.  If we can beat the Boilermakers, though, I think we'll sneak in and it could be a battle of unbeatens against SMU the following week.

My bigger question marks are the teams ranked 7-10, not sure what any of them have done to make anyone think they are top 10, besides their blue-bloodedness.  Maybe Auburn beating Oregon starts to look impressive after what the Ducks did to Nevada, but then Auburn turned around and had trouble putting Tulane away.

Typical. My Auburn buddy was moaning today about how many ranked teams Auburn plays and how Clemson plays no one. so annoying.

I'm thinking our chances are good to sneak into the poll tomorrow (that is, if any of the pollsters watched the BTN, which gave us excellent coverage).

28th in the Coaches Poll - I guess none of the coaches watched the BTN.

No. 25 TCU has the Big 12's longest active winning streak at 5 games which is tied for 7th-longest in the nation!
