Despite our near collapse today, I am positive that there are not 10 teams in the country better than us. That being said, I think a 7 place jump may be too much big of a hurdle, so I'll say 12. What say you?

Not that. I would be shocked if we didn't get a nice PK80 bump.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. Despite some posters bemoaning the announcers, we got a lot of love this weekend, a lot.

14 or 15 IOW - Right about where we should be, which is higher than where I thought we were at the beginning of the year, and certainly after Utah State

I don't think you can answer this until after the other games. If Florida and OSU both win, it makes us look that much better. Florida would get a big jump if they win, could argue they would deserve number 1.

Given the tip off time of Friday's contest, I wonder how many saw that game ( vs. today's ) ??

Florida was #7, when we took them to double ot. That's the very definition of a good loss.

Arizona should definitely be taken out of top 12. Gonzaga's rank depends a lot on what happens between Florida and Duke. If Florida wins I think Gonzaga should be in the top 10, ahead of USC. The PAC 10 has not looked that great so far this year, and USC has really not played anyone so far. They'll play Texas A & M next week. Notre Dame will move into the Top 10. USC and Arizona will move out. If Florida beats Duke, I feel Gonzaga will move into the top 10, and if Florida loses they'll be around 12. Gonzaga had the toughest bracket of any of the 16 teams in the tournament. For all you Zag doubters I think we should give our Zags credit for coming away from that tournament with only one loss. I think Florida will win tonight and GU will be a top ten team. Finally, if Gonzaga loses to a top 7, and maybe a top 4, in double overtime, how could anyone rank them much lower. They essentialy tied the #7 ranked team in the polls.

about right...depending how teams 10-16 do... Zona might be out of the top 20...

CaliZag07

I see us at 15. Xavier's loss to unranked AZ state is much worse than a double OT loss to top-10 Florida. Also think Zona will drop out of top 20 minimum.

2 spot jump for us.

Top 12? They lost 3 games in three days, all to unranked teams. There's zero justification for them to even be ranked, but I suspect they will be 25, due to name brand alone.

if they recorded it.....probably didn’t set extension long enough because of the delayed start and double OT.....like me...but I did watch live

CBS has a 25 and 1 poll. Ranked 14th before today’s game.

I picked 14 also. If UF wins, maybe 13th.

14 seems about right although I have not tracked how all of the 16 teams ranked above GU in the AP have done this weekend. If Florida swamps Duke tonight in the PK80 game, GU could maybe gain a couple more spots, but it is hard to see anything above a 12 no matter what happens.

Go Bulldogs!

Zagger
11-26-2017, 01:46 PM
I voted 12, especially if the Gators dine on Dook tonight. I think a move into the top 10 is not likely due to this Zag bunch still being a bit of an unknown quantity past our starters. I don’t see any scenario where the Zags stay @ 17 - not with how well a few Zags played in Portland.

Goshzagit
11-26-2017, 01:53 PM
I feel we are about #10 or #11 type of team.

Quite a few holes, but flashes of talent.

Better coached overall than most.

No depth at PG or C, some young guys around.

A fringe Top 10 team is where we should be ranked.

I think the voters take notice. #12 is my prediction

Zaga

Are the Zags a top 10? There should be no question after the win in MSG. Go Zags! Practice up those FT's and TO's.

11-26-2017, 03:05 PM
I went with 15. No real reason to push us up higher.

UberZagFan
11-26-2017, 03:27 PM
Thinking 14/15. Not a lot big losses ahead of us save for AZ, who should drop out but may stick in the twenties. Wichita St. losing ND likely doesn't push them below 15 or so. We certainly jump Xavier. Don't think any of the two top 10 games tonight will result in the 2 losers falling out of top 10. Plus, aren't the votes due before the games will be over?

12 if duke wins 9 if Florida wins. Some tough games ahead so I think we will move up a little with each win.

Jazz... Working on your theory.. Zags should have just shut down the season after losing to BYU last year . Meanwhile you are lamenting or should I say relishing in negativity over a WIN.

Did they play perfect no. Are there things to work on, yes. But stop with the whole this team sucks meme

Seth Davis bumped the Zags from #18 all the way up to #12 which sounds about right to me. He also dropped the Gaels from #10 to the big UR.

Higher than Coug football ...... went to the Apple Cup. Should have gone to Portland instead. Football Cougs had quite a meltdown @ UW. I'm liking the looks of the basketball Cougs. I'm hoping to see them ranked at least #25.

I had guessed 14. The predictions of top 10 were unrealistic and definitely required a Florida win.

AP also has Creighton at 25.

I think we're perfectly poised for this point in the season, or as perfect as realistic, given a missed FT
