Duke got housed by Georgetown, and Texas just lost in overtime to Baylor. Barring a loss to USF, it looks like the Zags (based on how the voters have voted so far) will be ranked 6th in the ESPN poll come Monday.

They rarely move you down (if ever?) if you win. It's silly enough to the people that follow it, but to the masses its cool. It does not hurt the 'Gonzaga' brand one bit.

I don't think what happened with Duke could happen again (we would know better) but being ahead of them (if that's what happens) would be odd.

On the other hand, we have farther to fall. Losing to the likes of USF, SCU, etc would have us falling, no matter how 'tough' it is on the road in Conf.

I would honestly be surprised if Georgetown and/or West Virginia don't jump us in the poll. I don't think we'll jump up to number six. We'll see I guess.

Rankings may be silly, but I still like seeing us up there. I guess I'm just one of the masses ;)

I am with you. I don't mind it at all. As far as I know, it can't hurt you...

Georgetown lost to syracuse earlier this week so I don't see them passing GU but West Virginia could pass us so I think we are #7 maybe #6 in coaches poll next week, if we win tonight.

No way we move in front of the team that beat us by 40 because they lost to the #7 ranked team in the nation and we edged out the usual WCC scrubs.

If Duke keeps losing they deserve to fall below us one game does not a season make. Even if it was a blow out.

good point... I had forgotten about that. And I agree, if Duke keeps losing, they should fall. That's the way rankings work...
