The newest AP Poll is out, and the results aren't that great for the Minnesota Golden Gophers; but they could certainly be a lot worse. The Gophers aren't in this edition of the rankings, but they received by far the most votes of any team that didn't make the list. We don't know how many votes the Gophers are away from cracking the top 25, but we do know that they (88) have way more votes than the next team, Wichita St. (29). Here are the complete rankings.
