Here are the results of the USA Today poll. I couldn't help but ask myself: Where the heck was Michigan??? Oh, then I remembered we went 3-9 last year.

Anyway, OSU checks in at No. 6 and PSU at No. 8. After that, there's a very large drop off before Iowa registers at No. 21. MSU barely missed at No. 27.

So where did Michigan fall? In what has to be our lowest pre-season ranking ever, Michigan registered one vote and checked in at No. 58. Ugh. I guess it will be that much sweeter when we prove them wrong. Still, No. 58 is U G L Y. We have a lot to prove this season.
