VIX Spreads are Still Crazy

The VIX Oct future has about 3 weeks to expire.  At this point the spread between the VIX and the VIX future should be about 1-1.25 points.  With the VIX on the rally that spread should be even tighter.  Yet,  as I review the market,  Friday we saw the VIX spread at about 3 points and today, even off the weekend with VIX up over 2 points, the spread between cash and VIX Futures are almost 2 points.  That is extremely wide:
