Bowling Green drops out of

Bowling Green drops out of the Top 25 for beating Purdue on the road? No respect for the MAC, I say. ;-)

None! ^_^ I was surprised

None! ^_^

I was surprised myself at the result. The thing is that the MAC, in general, is losing alot of their games, and Bowling Green is getting a "guilt by association" drag on their rating.

By week 4, I expect that a lot of the anomalous drops and such should be mostly gone, and if you win, you stay in. Right now, the conference rankings have disproportionate impact.
