The Buckeyes are still only still getting AP votes because they were getting them in the preseason, it seems. They've played 19 games and have zero so-called quality wins. They're 0-5 against top-50 RPI teams.
Kansas, Syracuse and Arizona are the only schools in the country with more top-50 RPI wins than Iowa State. And yet the Cyclones are 17th in one poll and 19th in the other. That just doesn't make much sense.
