Raining on Baylor's Parade



USA Today's Coaches Poll just hit. TCU is now #25... Baylor is #26. Guess the coaches are more impressed by our young team's comeback than Baylor's near collapse.

I like our ranking and am very surprised by it, but I don't really agree with being ranked ahead of Baylor.

They beat us. And it wasn't a fluke.

Although we came back in the game they still had the poise to march down the field and ice it with a field goal... although we almost did the same thing.

I guess it shows how much respect TCU has earned over the years, and while we may end up being the better team by the end of the year, I think Baylor deserves to be in front of us.

AP has them at 20, us at 25. Pretty surprised by the coaches poll as well. I wouldn't necessarily call the game a fluke, they definitely deserved it, but I would put money on us any other day. Sucks we had to play them the first game of the season.

Agreed Bucknasty.

To put it better.

I think Baylor deserves to be in front of us.... for now

Silver lining in this: we're the only other school besides Oregon in the top 25 with a loss

Yeah, but the coaches don't watch the games and they mostly vote based off of historic preformance... I think the Coaches Poll is pretty much a joke and should have no part in determining the BCS Championship.

Excellent point scooter. That certainly shows the level of respect that our program has built in recent years. Its gonna be a climb, but I forsee us in the top 15 by seasons end
