Penn State 10 In Coaches' Poll, Lower In Computers


Penn State moves up one spot to 10 in the Coaches' Poll, thanks Miami, and will probably hold the same spot in the Harris (Update: Indeed).  The irrelevant poll has PSU down at 12.

As for the BCS, the computers will hurt.  The Guru predicts:

1. Florida, 2. Alabama, 3. Texas, 4. Iowa, 5. TCU, 6. Boise State, 7. Cincinnati, 8. USC, 9. LSU, 10. Oregon, 11. Georgia Tech, 12. Penn State, 13. Virginia Tech, 14. Oklahoma State, 15. Utah.

I'll update tonight when we go official.

Some quick points:

  • Iowa is getting a raw deal from the humans.  They sit well behind fellow undefeateds TCU, Boise State and Cinci despite having a win over the #10 team on the road, something those other three teams don't have.
  • WTF is with USC at #5 in the Coaches'?  Their best win was against Ohio State, a team largely devalued after the Purdue loss, and sit above four undefeateds including Iowa.  Not only does Iowa have a much better "best" win, but also, you know, hasn't lost to a team that sits with just three wins and isn't likely to even make a bowl this season.  It's criminal what USC gets away with.
  • Penn State should stabilize a bit in the computers over the next couple of weeks after a poor showing last week in which they weren't even included in all of them.  They look to be 14ish in the rankings that are currently public.
