There's alot of worrying about the polls screwing over Iowa in the long run.
After the new ELO ranking came out today I did some number crunching. (Cause I'm a nerd)
If the current computer polls continue their pattern, Iowa could easily end up number 3 despite no one in the media wanting them to be.
It comes down to averages. Iowa keeps winning all it will take is 4th in the coaches and harris polls to move to the number 3 spot. Why? Because Texas is god awful in the computer poll.
So what needs to happen?
1. Harris and coaches poll moves Iowa to 4th, behind Florida, bama, and Texas. (Reasonable in the next 4 weeks if Iowa keeps winning)
2. Computer polls keep improving Iowa. This is almost 100% given, most of the computers polls use S.O.S. as a major factor and Iowa has that in the bag.
3. WIN. All of this is shit if they drop a game. So GO HAWKS!
EDIT: So I was right wooooo! All but one computer poll has us number 1 (Damn you Billingsley!)
