After a week that saw the Minnesota Golden Gophers offense put in a dominating performance at Purdue, while the defense did enough to get a big win and move to 4-0, you the TDG readers have noticed. The new Fan Pulse Top 25 is here and you have decided that the Gophers are good enough to crack the list. Minnesota comes in at #24 this week in the TDG poll, but still is just recieving votes in the national poll. But we do have a new #1 in both rankings as Alabama Crimson Tide jumps up to the top of the heap.

Here is how you the TDG readers ranked the Top 25. Previous weeks rankings in parentheses:

  1. Alabama (2)
  2. Ohio State (4)
  3. Georgia (3)
  4. Clemson (1)
  5. LSU (5)
  6. Oklahoma (6)
  7. Auburn (7)
  8. Florida (9)
  9. Notre Dame (10)
  10. Wisconsin (8)
  11. Penn State (12)
  12. Texas (11)
  13. Oregon (13)
  14. Iowa (14)
  15. Boise State (18)
  16. Washington (20)
  17. Utah (15)
  18. Virginia (24)
  19. Michigan (19)
  20. Cal (25)
  21. UCF (22)
  22. Texas A&M (17)
  23. Michigan State (16)
  24. Minnesota (NR)
  25. USC (21)

Besides Alabama taking over the top spot, Ohio State jumpes up to #2 after w big win over Nebraska.

Now...far for me to judge on how you all rank your ballots....but did you watch some of the games? Virginia jumps up six sports after losing to Notre Dame. Cal jumps up 5 after losing to Arizona State. Umm....ok

As for the droppers—Clemson takes the hit and falls all the way to #4 after squeaking by North Carolina Saturday. Wisconsin drops two spots after winning over Northwestern....there’s the hate I knew you had in you. Utah drops a pair after crushing Washington State?? Michigan State is the big dropper this week down 7 slots after barely beating Indiana. A bit harsh IMO, but ok. USC drops four spots after losing to the #16 Huskies. Washington State is the only team to get dropped out of the rankings this week with the Gophers taking their place.

Here is how the national poll shook out:

There was also a poll question on who you fans thought the first team to fire their coach would be. Of course, literally after asking this question Rutgers said adios to Chris Ash. I’ll assume that’s why Rutgers didn’t win this poll. But, yeah the Tennessee Volunteers are in a bad bad place.

Tennessee - 24.9%

Rutgers - 24.1%

Florida State - 14.1%

Virginia Tech - 13.4%

USC - 9.6%

USF - 9.0%

Arkansas 5.0%

But What About How We Feel About the Gophers?

Guess like them a lot.

From 81.8 percent positive after Week 1 we now sit at a perfect 100% approval rating for the confidence in the program after Week 5. 100%. Guess are more negative posters don’t vote in the Fan Pulse voting...
