Considering their performances in their last two games, I'd question if OSU deserves a top-20 ranking at all.

I question K.U.'s ranking in the top twenty....but good on 'em...go hawks!!!

1) We won the Orange Bowl

2) We returned our QB and a lot of talent

Why wouldn't we be ranked as high as we are?

Umm . . . . we won the Orange Bowl two years ago . . . . but yes, we did return our quarterback . . . and yes, we did win our bowl game last year. We'll see whether we deserve to be ranked higher or lower in coming weeks.

IMO, we should be around 15 at the moment. Next week's game against Southern Miss will be our first true test of the season. This week can't go by fast enough!

I remember watching Southern Miss beat Nebraska in Lincoln on TV a few years ago...should be a tough game, USM will come ready to play, hope we're ready. Go, Hawks!
