Last week’s ballot
Dropped Out: West Virginia (#23), Utah St. (#25).

  • So, UCONN gets their second crack at being #1…can someone please hold on to this thing?  Being a BIG EAST snob, I’d rather see UCONN hold onto it rather than UNC.  Still, 3 out of the top 5 is good for me.
  • Memphis just keeps on winning…I still could not justify putting them above Pittsburgh.  Afterall, Pittsburgh ran into a buzzsaw at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center against Providence….can’t blame them for losing too much :)
  • Arizona St, Clemson, and Marquette had big nosedives thanks to two losses in the week.  Marquette played some tough BIG EAST competition so it was hard to drop them a lot, but losing Dominic James means they are no longer a top-10 team anyway.
  • Duke will not go away.
  • I almost considered putting Providence at #25, for the sole purpose of trying to wrestle away Chris from IBBW’s reoccurring spot in the Coulter/Kos award for biggest home team bias.   Then I realized by putting them at 25, my BlogPoll voting privileges would probably be stripped from me.  Oh well, if we beat Nova on Thursday, look for a Top 25 placement!
