    It was a slow week, meaning that there weren’t that many upsets and, thus, not much change to the Top 25.

    Florida is still No. 1. Wichita State is still No. 2. How does the rest of the Top 25 shake out?

    Virginia is the perfect example of why unbalanced schedules as a result of conference expansion is lame. The three teams that the ‘Hoos played twice during ACC play were Florida State, Maryland and Notre Dame. They didn’t have to play at North Carolina or at Syracuse. So while I certainly respect that the only loss…

    Drake v Wichita State

    Arguing over whether or not Wichita State deserves to be the No. 1 team in the country is a conversation that is going to overtake college hoops over the next couple of weeks. Here’s my take: Florida deserves to be the No. 1 team in the country this week, even with their struggles over the…

    Wichita State

    Thanks to road wins over the two toughest teams in the Missouri Valley this week, we’ve reached the point in the season where it seems more likely that Wichita State will head into the postseason with a perfect record. What that means is that over the course of the next five weeks, the biggest topic…

    I spent the morning arguing with Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com for his decision to include SMU in his Top 25. You can see it here. SMU is sitting right there at No. 25 despite the fact that, just six days ago, the Mustangs lost to South Florida at South Florida. His justification, more or less,…

    The toughest team to rank this week was Michigan, a team sitting at 15-4 on the season that, until last week, wasn’t even in the conversation to be in the top 25. I had them 18th last week. I slotted them No. 5 this week. Too high? Maybe, but there are a couple of things…

  20. Duke falls outside AP top ten for the first time in six years

    For the first time since November 25th, 2007, Duke’s basketball program isn’t ranked in the top ten of the AP poll. Let me say that again. For the first time in 122 weeks — in more than six full seasons — Duke’s slid outside the top ten of the AP poll. That’s the second-longest streak…

    Michigan State v Penn State

    Last week, I had Michigan State sitting at fifth behind four undefeated teams: Arizona, Syracuse, Wisconsin and Ohio State. This week? I have the Spartans second, jumping them past Syracuse, Wisconsin and Ohio State despite the fact that none of those three teams lost this week. Which probably doesn’t make a ton of sense considering…

    What do we do with Villanova and Louisville this week? The Wildcats lost on the road to Syracuse, the nation’s No. 2 team, by 16 points in a game that was closer during the second half than the final score would indicate. That’s a game Villanova is supposed to lose. The same can be said…
