Disappointing to see us drop a spot. This poll is much better than the coaches poll, but KSU at #15 is a travesty.

CCSU has to just keep winning and that’s all that matters.

Which poll are you referring to JJ? I’m glad they moved up two in this one and they just missed the top 25 in the “Athlon” poll.

I guess with our strength of schedule, it’s not surprising they would drop slightly even with a win.

The Coaches poll is self-explanatory. It is awful because the coaches or SIDs who don't really follow other teams and the voting is more based on reputations. Regardless of how well CCSU does in the poll, I ignore it. It is garbage in my opinion.

The STATS FCS Poll is closer to the former AP poll, the voters are media members and conference officials. I think it is a much better poll. Certainly not perfect and it has its flaws, but that is the barometer that I use.

Thx for the info JJ. In all seriousness, a step or two up or down doesn’t make a difference at this point. The men just have to run the table and hope to get an opponent that they can play well against. (In other words, not North Dakota State)

I think voters in both polls are finding CCSU has hit an artificial glass ceiling due to our weak strength of schedule (SOS). We certainly have the lowest SOS of all ranked teams (but not by much), and our best win by strength is SHU.

I honestly think we are worthy of a 16-15 ranking, but that may be hard to come by in the regular season. We will likely have to win a game in the playoffs to gain some national respect.

What is the Athlon Sports poll? Whatever it is we’re #25 this week, no ranking last week.

We got to slay some 🐉 to hit that ranking.
