As for Oklahoma State, how can anyone possibly rank them so high? Their toughest games up to the point of the Missouri game were Troy and Texas A&M (cakewalks basically). So they beat Missouri and all of a sudden they're top 10 material after playing....nobody? I need to see something else before they're all of a sudden a top 10 team.
I'm not going to jump a team drastically just for having a big win without any other evidence to build a case. If that were the case I would have at least ranked my Beavers after upsetting the #1 team in the country.
They're undefeated, and in a major conference. How can you say there's no evidence? THEY'VE WON EVERY GAME THEY'VE PLAYED, that's pretty good evidence. They have beaten one ranked team. How many team have beaten multiple ranked opponents at this stage? Until they lose, you have to assume they belong up there.

Also, you need a new definition of 'competent.' By my reckoning, a .500 team in a BCS conference who's run two ranked teams to within a score is competent. Your Beavers are definitely competent.
