Wichita seems to follow us. How is 7-loss Oklahoma a 5 seed?

They played "tough competition" and lost the worst team in the Big East :)

Loving Seattle but no liking that 2nd round matchup vs. Miami or Oh St. Both those teams are tough outs, especially Miami, i've seen them play several times this year and they have the ability to beat anyone (and lose to anyone for that matter).

Of course there are many more weeks to play and alot of room for change.

I am not a fan of facing Miami either.

St. Mary's listed as last of the "next four out"...i.e., 8th out of the teams not included. WCC looking like a 1-big league unless the Gaels upset the Zags in Moraga or Vegas.

gee, no difference of opinion in those polls until one ranks Kansas 8 the other ranks Kansas 11
a dead week for us in the polls
even if VA or UK lose, I think we would still be #3, and
IMHO should be

ranked 3rd in BPI and ESPN power ratings also this week, but predictably down to 9th in RPI

I don't think so.

If UVA wins, they stay 2.
If Duke wins, they jump us from 4 to 2.

If Duke wins, we could see ourselves fall to 4 with Virginia being 3, Duke being 2

And that's going to be the story of the rest of the year. As very top teams beat very top teams, will just keep pounding on the WCC and may not move much at all.

Just a serious question not really disagreeing but why would they jump us if nobody did in 2013

And their one loss is waaaaaaay worse than ours. It doesn't really matter.... Duke if they somehow beat Virginia will lose to boston college will still be top 5. I was just playing devils advocate lol like I said nobody jumped us in 2013 when we kept winning

Anybody else think Texas is over-rated at # 19 ?

I would also question Louisville as a 4 seed. They have 3 losses. Kentucky and Duke at home. And North Carolina on the road. That to me is not a team that shows 12 teams better than them. But they want to create better games in those first 2 weeks.

Good call, ZZ.

Call Kiddwell crazy, but this fan thinks UVa is going to lose four in a row starting Saturday with Duke. They then drop a roadie @ UNC, a home game vs. Louisville, and then (full of sudden self-doubt) a roadie at NC State.

This is not a "hate" thing; really like UVa and their coach, but they're doomed. :explode:

Teams around us kept losing to unranked teams in 2013. This year has much more quality at the top and we will likely get jumped in the polls and seeding. I'm fine with it. I don't want a 1 seed at all. I'd prefer a 2 seed and a little less pressure.

Agree. Example, Miami was a fraud that year.

Or if Pacific upsets the Zags in Vegas

Hahaha. Good point. I think the likelihood of both of these things happening are pretty equal............

As Woohoo would say, #2 is more better than #3.
