St.Mary's not in top-25 is ridiculous.

St. Mary's got bumped out of the final top 25. Xavier got hot at the end of the season but was unranked prior to the Tourney and lost 14 games. How high should they have risen? I can understand bumping the teams that made the Final 4 into the top 4 of the poll, but after that are you ranking strictly based on Tourney results or the 35-40 game entirety of the season?

Yeah, there ranking should have only improved considering how they played.

If Zach comes back, we're a 2, not that it matters much now.

Would you put them in over Iowa State? I wouldn't.

False choice my friend. I probably would have Iowa State higher and SMC in the 18 to 20 range.

SMC showed very, very well against Arizona. Arizona is ranked #7 in this poll.

Wow, South Carolina went from nowheresville up to SIXTH. I think this puts too much emphasis on tournament results.

I'm not sure I'd have them over Iowa State but I'd definitely have both teams higher.

And I hazard that an SMC-Iowa St. game would be very tight. SMC would have the big advantage on the interior. If they played 100 times, SMC is winning a very healthy chunk of those games. That was a damn good basketball team that just didn't match up particularly well with Gonzaga. (few teams did) They wouldn't be an easy out for almost every team in the country.

But yeah clearly recent bias skew this poll too much to really have relevancy. Just thought SMC's showing against Arizona should have kept them in the poll.

And, more importantly, in the West. I already bought my tickets for the Sweet Sixteen in L.A.

If the Zags don't play there, do you know anyone who wants to buy some tickets to the Sweet Sixteen?
