Weekly Power Rankings are Out

SBNation's Power Rankings are out and Seattle is not in a good place. I guess not scoring and regular defensive lapses don't impress voters. It isn't prettier when you look at the Sagarin rankings, at least not much prettier. Seattle is 11th by that metric, but if you want a sign of hope you could note that they have the 6th toughest schedule to this point.

Bigger signs of hope are the two 6 footers that were at practice yesterday.

Are the rankings deserved, or are they ignoring that Seattle has essentially been an average team that has been unlucky?
