After last night's 49-17 thumping by Oklahoma State in Stillwater, the Bears have dropped in both of the polls early this afternoon. While not surprising, the news could have been worse, as the Bears slide to #9 in the AP poll and #8 in the Coaches Poll. Here are the full poll results:

Personally, I somewhat expected to drop out of the Top 10 altogether, so I was pleasantly surprised to see us sitting at 8 and 9. The fact that the computer polls don't take MOV into consideration means there's a good chance that we'll be 8 in the BCS when it comes out later today. Check back for those rankings this evening.
