08:17 AM ET 10.04 | Brady Hoke isn't believing the hype. Sure, the two major national polls have the unbeaten Wolverines ranked among the nation's top 15 teams ... following their 58-0 thrashing of Minnesota in the Big Ten opener. But Hoke believes poll voters are being too generous. Hoke was asked Monday during his weekly news conference if the Wolverines (5-0) are overrated. "Yeah," said Hoke, who is preparing the Wolverines for their first road game, at Northwestern (2-2) on Saturday at 7 p.m. Hoke admitted he voted for Michigan in the coaches' poll for the first time this season, but did not specify where. "Somewhere in the top 25 teams," Hoke said. Hoke said he told the players Sunday during the team meeting the Wolverines are rated too high.

That's what happens when 10 ranked teams lose, you move up.

The team is overrated but Denard Robinson is not. Michigan's next 4 out of 5 games are away from the Big House,, then Nebraska and Ohio st at home,, can DR make it that far?

This +1,000.....Arky is over-rated at #10, also but 7 teams ahead of them lost sombody's gotta fill the list. Rankings are complete BS until @ November 1st, anyway.
