Rutgers knocks off Louisville!

There you have it folks. Rutgers is one of only 4 teams left that are undefeated. Boise State really doesn't count because they have a blue field so we can just throw them out entirely.

So....what happens now? You guessed it. Rutgers is going to get screwed by the pollsters. The last 2 teams ranked #3 in the country have lost in back to back weeks. This week it was Rutgers knocking off Louisville the week after Louisville defeated West Virginia. Why is this such a big deal? Let me tell you.

Rutgers is in the same conference as Louisville and West Virginia. Rutgers beat the only other undefeated team in that conference tonight in the #3 ranked Louisville Cardinals. Rutgers is now the only undefeated team in that conference. So based on that information you have to wonder why Rutgers would not be ranked #3 after this week. They are only ranked #15 now, and the team Louisville beat last week is actually ranked #10 ahead of them at this point.

So.....what's the deal pollsters? Rutgers should be ranked #3 next week. There should be no excuses whatsoever. If they are not it is a downright travesty.
