New RPI up, Hawaii No. 8. just weird

October 31st, 2011

Illinois No. 1, followed by Nebraska, Iowa State, Texas, UNI, Minneosta, Stanford and Hawaii

UCLA at No. 9.

I think it’s just screwy how you can lose and move up, and keep losing, in the case of Minnesota (13-8). and still don’t understand the UNI ranking. guess the MVC has become such a powerhouse.

UCLA No. 1 in 10-31 poll, Hawaii down to No. 8

October 31st, 2011

Bruins, based on their two wins at Cal and Stanford this week, leapfrogged to 1 from 6th, getting 41 votes. Nebraska slips a spot to 2, followed by Stanford, SC and Illinois.

Penn State goes from 8 to 6, which pushed Hawaii from 7 to 8. and Cal from 2 to 7.

hopefully the RPI comes out today while I’m still online.

UCLA winning should continue to help Hawaii.
