Awesome! I wonder when the last time we received a vote was.
Actually this is a pretty big deal and surprising. We are in a lowly rated conference and have 2 bad losses so far. Since this is the coaches poll, they have a better feel for teams than the AP. Just keep winning and hope that the teams ahead of you drop some games. If we don't lose until at least half of the conference season, we should crack the top 25.
I know for sure that the Aggies received votes in the coaches poll during the 2011-2012 season after a mere 2 or 3 games. They were 3-0 after beating Northern Colorado in Greeley, the Loobs at the pit, and UTEP at home. I think they got one or two Coaches votes because that was a year that the Loobs were stacked (and later ranked) and we were big underdogs on the road.
Could have possibly picked up other votes since then, but I don't recall off the top of my head.
Here's the box score to the game against UNM in 2011. We had McKines, Bandja and Hamidu (Mullings was a frosh). Loobs had Tony Snell, Cam Bairstow, Drew Gordon, and Kendal Williams. I wanna say it was the game where the Aggies first revealed those all black jerseys, and Bandja had a top10 alley-oop dunk on SportsCenter?
