We win out and finish 11-3, do we get Top 25 consideration??

 

What about lose C-USA Championship, but beat a t Top 25 Army, Rice, and a Bowl Game??  10-4

 

When do we get some LOVE???

Honestly, I think it's 11-3 or GTFO to get votes.  We'll need to pull of seasons like this a couple more times, including bowl wins and conference championships, to get better consideration.  Remember -- this is still all human voting, and humans have inherent biases and perceptions.

The huge loss to FAU makes it tough to get any Top 25 votes in my mind.

Ohio State lost 55-24 and is still ranked in the top 10.   Apparently some are forgiven a let down game and others are not, so you are probably right.

11-3  and I think we need to beat Army and Rice with authority and just beat FAU, part of which I think is based on the two blowouts to SMU and FAU.

tOSU gets the benefit of its name and history. It's a lot like why teams like Texas and Notre Dame are always in the preseason Top 25 despite having shown nothing to voters.

We would need to win out to get any votes, beating Army won't get us anything, beating army may put us in the top 40. We have to beat FAU and not by just a FG and then win our bowl game. The bowl game would probably have to be a win over a some what respected opponent. The odds are forever against us when it comes to ranking.

Plus P5 conference  and their SoS has to be better than ours.

The 2013 team got votes after the bowl win. Like I said, I think we will receive votes for beating Army. We will receive the votes they got this week. But as of right now, it may take a couple more wins to sustain enough votes to crack the top 25.

Army has votes in both the AP and Coaches.  IF we beat Army, we should and then take care of Rice to finish the regular season at 9-3, that *should* be enough to start getting some love, but it probably won't be forthcoming.  Hell, even Troy....again, Troy is getting votes in the coaches poll.

If we beat Army and Rice I think we will get votes at 9-3. If nothing else, our getting votes makes Iowa look better so they would WANT us to get some votes.

i don't like talking about this. but, assuming we haven't lost,  if you beat FAU, you are 26 or 27.

People love conference champs and we would be sitting at 10-3

Just like FAU, we performed poorly vs OOC.

Beat Army and the only real turd we dropped in OOC was to SMUt.

At 11-3 we just don't get votes, but we finish the season ranked. 

maybe... WKU finished last year on an 8 game win streak, CUSA Champs, bowl champs and it's losses were to Bama, Vandy and La Tech... they were left out of the top 25.

9-4 got us some votes in 2013

They finished 29th in both AP and coaches, which is a joke. They drubbed 3 named programs to cap off the season. However, SDSU finished the season 11-3 and ranked 25th in the final poll.

There is a difference in the national perception of the MWC VS C-USA.

They did beat LSU in BR, so votes are easier to come by for them.

The benefit we get from our name is history is AP voters asking "Where's North Texas State?  I don't see them as an option."

Maybe we could call ourselves the University of Lewisville and people would get us mixed up with that team from Kentucky.
