Ball State is ranked, other observations

The new polls are out.

For the first time in school history, Ball State is ranked. The Cardinals debut at No. 25 in the AP poll, but don’t yet appear on the coaches’ poll.

Speaking of the coaches’ poll….it reveals an, umm, interesting road ahead for Indiana. Northwestern (No. 22), Wisconsin (No. 24) and Penn State (No. 6) all loom for the Hoosiers, as does Illinois (receiving votes.)

Indiana also has Iowa (which lost 16-13 to Michigan State last week), Central Michigan (which had a bye) and Purdue (a 20-6 loser to Penn State) left on the schedule.

  1. I thought SI was crazy when they released their ’08 predictions and had our Hoosiers winning four games this year. While the Ball State loss doesn’t look quite so bad given the Cards’ recent success, it still feels like it could be a very, very long season for IU football fans.
