has granted CORN, this year's National Thanksgiving Turkey, a full pardon!
With their Thanksgiving turkey duties complete, Corn and Cob will both retire to Iowa State University! 🌽 🦃
Iowa State is No. 1️⃣3️⃣ in the first @CFBPlayoff
rankings. Iowa State and Oklahoma are the only two Big 12 teams to appear in the CFP rankings in each of the last four seasons.
Iowa State has one win against a team w/ a winning record. Two losses, to teams in the CFP top 25. Ranked No. 13.
Louisiana beat Iowa State, has one loss, to an undefeated team in the top 20. Not ranked.
Again, it's nonsense.
Give BYU Georgia's, Oklahoma's, Miami's, Indiana's or Iowa State's schedules, and at WORST they'd have the same record with the same losses (likely by smaller margins). But because 6 games with P5 teams got canceled, they might not even make NY6. Cool system.
Wins over currently ranked teams:
2 - Alabama, Oklahoma, Ok State
1 - A&M, Clemson, Coastal Carolina, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Iowa State, Kansas State, Louisiana, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Ohio State, South Carolina, TCU, Texas, Virginia
0 - BYU, Cincinnati
"As you look at their schedule" bruh Iowa State lost to LOUISIANA LAFAYETTE
Iowa State comes in at No. 13 in the initial CFP rankings, surpassing the program’s previous high spot of No. 15. https://t.co/SvrSbFzSko
Why is Iowa State ranked 13th and Louisiana, which beat ISU, is not ranked: "Iowa State got better and better as the year went on. The Committee is impressed by their running game. We look at the schedule and who everybody plays."
Initial CFP ranking has 9-0 BYU #14. Tells us the committee values quality wins to a degree over eye-test. BYU looks great on tape, but best win is over then-#21 Boise. Three two-loss teams are ahead of them, incl 6-2 Iowa State, who lost to unranked Louisiana, but beat Oklahoma.
Iowa State 13th in the first CFP rankings.
One interesting CFP note: The 7-1 Ragin' Cajuns, whose only loss is to No. 20 Coastal Carolina, is not in the Top 25; 6-2 Iowa State, which UL beat to open its season, is No. 13
Iowa State has lost 2 times. Once to Louisiana... and they’re above BYU? Oklahoma has 2 losses, one of them to 4-4 Kansas State... and they’re above BYU?
No. 11 Oklahoma
No. 12 Indiana
No. 13 Iowa State
No. 14 BYU
No. 15 Oregon
... Why is Iowa State ranked above Oregon why is Oregon so low Why is Louisiana NOT ranked why is Washington not ranked but auburn is and why is Indiana getting not much respect why was Oklahoma state dropped so much of they lost to such a “good team” and why isn’t Tulsa gaining!
How is Oklahoma ranked ahead of Iowa State? Iowa State beat Oklahoma.
Ranked 19 after they beat Iowa State.
If you can lose to a sunbelt team and be higher than a team that has best sunbelt teams. It makes no sense.
Same principal could be applied to Iowa State over Oklahoma.
That’s what i was expecting honestly. Iowa state doesn’t deserve to be in top 25 at all.
@john_boomer1990 @CamCamgeorge87 @975Hans
You do not have a shot lol. No 2 loss team has ever been in. And they wouldn’t jump a 2 loss Florida who’s losses are Alabama and A&M and not Kansas State and Iowa State
Everything. Clemson, BYU, Miami Georgia, Iowa State, Oklahoma, Coastal Carolina, etc? All just a bunch of trash by the hacks that are the #collegefootball playoff committee https://t.co/wSx5dpHMs7
While having Byu where they are is wrong to me. Two of the two loss teams above them each with a weak loss each. But to have those two teams with the same record who have played each other and the winner Iowa State ranked lower is just flat out stupidity! https://t.co/gr1j7dnTzj
Same goes for Cincy. They're ranked 7. Explain that.
Oh, and there's also the loss by Iowa State to a team from the...you guessed it... Sun Belt Conference.
Sorry rivals aren’t allowed to have fun Mr. Burner Account. I’ll live my life acting like Iowa State is the only college program on Earth if it makes you happy.
Polls are for uninformed voters to put out to distract fans from the real business ahead. Iowa State has one mission this week, take down Texas and get to the BigXII Title Game, that’s the only focus. #CycloneNation 🌪
