Perception of UFM vs perception of TOSU

Is anyone else a little surprised (disappointed) that the cache of urban hasn't done more for our national perception? I had hoped his star status would have tempered some of the national reluctance to believe we are actually a championship caliber team, but that hasn't been the case. Anyone else surprised that a 22 game winning streak by a Rock star coach at a blue blood program isn't enough to hold off Baylor? Are we Boise? I didn't really have a problem with FSU or Bama or even an Oregon jumping us if that's what voters truly felt .... But Baylor? Yeah, that Baylor! Wow, never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined this with an urban coached team. Does no one remember what this guy has done everywhere he has been?  I'm not saying that past performance necessarily guarantees future success, but I truly felt the media would view us differently with him as our coach and they simply haven't. They moved from the tired and played out theme that we didn't have the athletes to compete to the new theme that our conference stinks too bad for us to be good. News flash, the B1G stunk when we were going to championships before.
