OSU is already ranked #5. WTH? Did they not get the memo that Urban Myer is no longer the head coach and that the team lost many of its top players because they were seniors last year? They actually think OSU is going to pick up right where they left off? They will beat the usual cream puff teams they always get on their schedule, but I doubt they will beat any high ranked teams this year...new coach and new players equals time to come together as a new team...

Rankings are irrelevant until October/November. They just give fans and the media something to jawbone about until then.

I'm not a fan of pre-season polls. Even though my team, Oklahoma, usually benefits from it.

My thought is to not have the polls come out until after week 4. Like BMWTurboDzl said, it's just for the media and fans. I just think currently it can be detrimental to the final outcome at the end of the season.

Totally agree with geek....especially for OU if that defense don't get better, doesn't matter what your offense can do.

If the Buckeyes come out strong and don't get lackadaisical (like they did against FAU), they'll do fine against the Bearcats.

OSU won't lose until they start playing ranked teams...the cream puffs they always have on their schedule are gimme games...

I’m rooting for lackadaisical, myself-that 2nd half against FAU looked like tOSU was really trying to let them back in the game!

I have never cared about the "power rankings" especially so early in the season. They push them for NASCAR like crazy like somehow it matters.

That being said I am an Alabama Crimson Tide fan so they haven't been below 2 in a long time.

It may have something to do with way players say "thee (said with a pause) Ohio State" when players announce where they went to school, like the school is some kind of royalty or something...it's sickening...

That has always seemed weird to me as well as the ones that say "The U". I do enjoy when someone randomly says their Junior College or High School.

It comes from distinguishing "OSU" from other universities. What does OSU stand for, Ohio State University, Oklahoma State University, Oregon State University ?
