Exactly, Hawaii started the season 23 and 24 in the polls which is about exactly where I have them(a little higher at 21 but whatever). If we're gonna start dumping teams because of almost losing....man I dunno.
People knocked down USC a little bit because they struggled with Arizona, even without going into OT with them. And Arizona, bad as they are, is one of those teams that looks like a juggernaught when they play against Louisiana Tech.
Lots of teams struggle with moderate and even bad teams that they should be quite a bit better than, it happens. La Tech and SJST are just on such a different level of bad though. So far beyond moderate or bad, and it's not like Hawaii has beat anyone that anybody can probably even name offhand to make up for it.
I just don't see how someone can honestly look at Hawaii and see those games and think they're BETTER than they thought they were at the beginning of the season.
