Mid Major Top 10 - Fresno Holds on..

Brett Davis-US PRESSWIRE
A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it. Everything they've ever "known" has been proven to be wrong. A thousand years ago everybody knew as a fact, that the earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew that the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on it. Imagine what you'll know tomorrow. -- Agent Kay MIB

Im Pretty sure if you asked any of the voters in the MMT10 poll they would all tell you that Toledo is better than Buffalo and Bowling Green. After all the Rockets did beat both the Bulls and Falcons.

But somehow Toledo's loss to #2 NIU is enough to drop the rockets out of the poll but Buffalo and Bowling Green slobberknocking (did I use that right) Miami and EMU keeps them ranked.

So while each person might give you the right answer the "People" of the poll did a great disservice to the Rockets. FWIW I had them ranked #10.
