Irish move to 19 in AP poll, 21 in Coaches

Nov 1, 2009, 2:57 PM EDT

The new rankings were just released and they saw Notre Dame climb a few spots up the ladder. In the AP poll, the Irish went from 25 to 19, moving up six spots from last week. In the USA Today Coaches’ Poll, the Irish climbed from 25 to 21, a smaller jump, but still significant nonetheless. The Irish leapfrogged Oklahoma in the AP poll, but still sit a slot below the Sooners in the Coaches’ Poll.

The only two loss teams in front of Notre Dame are USC, Ohio State, Miami, and Oklahoma State in the AP poll, and in the Coaches’ poll, Arizona and three-loss Oklahoma are also ranked ahead of the Irish.

While Notre Dame plays Navy next weekend, 14th ranked Pittsburgh should be a great opportunity for the Irish in two weeks. The BCS rankings are due out later this afternoon, as well as the Harris Poll. 

UPDATE:  By popular demand, here’s a link to the entire rankings.

    Do you think it would be to much of a reach to actually list the poll? Are we just supposed to guess what the order is, are you really just to busy to print out the poll results?

    didn’t mean to plug the opposition just didn’t understand the negativity

    Pitt is a very good team and will end the ND rise to stardom….The BCS will find a way to keep ND ranked

    Pitt is a good team but they have played nobody ………they fall to 7-2 because of the strength of Notre dame offense and the defense will stand up and drop that pitt team ;)

    keith,
    1. apparently, some people forgot to check the full rankings at msnbc/sportsncaafb where the rankings appear every week. going to the espn or anywhere else is completely unnecessary with one exception and that is the six computer rankings that are currently factored into the bcs rankings, providing 1/3 of the bcs rankings elements with the coaches rankings(human) and the harris poll rankings(human) providing the rest of the bcs rankings results.
    2. the ap rankings mean nothing any more and for very good reasons.
    3.anyone can check the six computer rankings systems currently factored into the bcs equation at bcs college football rankings
    4. the current computer rankings systems are hopelessly flawed since the ingoing data and the computer software reflect very serious biases of the people behind choosing the input data and writing the computer software.
    5. florida currently appears as no 1 in all human and computer rankings systems with one exception from an outfit with an alabama bias.
    6. we have sent all six computer rankings systems to our computer software experts and not one even received a passing grade.
    7. therefore, we have done our own completely transparent to the public rankings system which we will shove down the throats of the bcs, the ncaa, the conferences and the schools. after all, we have been in the business or writing and fixing computer software for more than 30 years(obviouly, those companies are run by techies even though i can read and compose software at a very high level of profiency).
    7. while there are numerous problems with the current rankings systems and while getting rid of the coaches vote and the harris vote are obvious requirements, replacing the current ranking systems with honest and fully transparent sotware and date input systems.
    8. among the key factors currently omitted are graduation success rates for student athletes polaying footballv and evaluatioins of the academic content of courses on the transcipts of every coolege football player and athlete, along with onsite inspections of each listed course.
    9. no doubt, the inclusion of those factors would favor stanford, boston college, the service academies, and the other schools that field teams of real student athletes.
    10. however, since we can use economic violence in the civil courts to shove the new rankings system down the throats of the bcs, the ncaa, the conferences, and the schools that field football teams composed of full time athletes.
    11. however, those schools made those choices. they will have to change their policies or take the ranking consequences
    GO IRISH!!!

    I’ve been an Irish fan for 52 years and have seen and heard a lot of strange things but who is RobertG and why is he saying ALL those things.

    Hey robertg:
    You end your #7 paragraph above by stating that you work with a very high level of proficiency. You then begin your next paragraph #7. You’re not working at such a high level here, bub. I find that I always have to read your posts, much the same as I always have to slow down and look at the aftermath of a traffic accident.
    Regards,
    Art

    If you want to buy real estate, you would have to get the loans. Moreover, my father commonly takes a short term loan, which occurs to be really fast.
