Gonzaga leapfrogs three spots to 20th, over the backs of Oregon and Xavier.
Saint Mary's is one and done. Let's hope it won't be 18 years before they are back!

With the top ten not changing and the next ten a view questions about the selection or who is getting votes and why. Example; Pittsburgh #11 with a 10-0 record and #10 #9 and #8 have one loss. It is too early to look at strength of schedule we should look at win/loss record and who they have beat. GU will go up next week after we beat Northern Colorado by 20+ and Oklahoma by 10+.

Pittsburgh should be behind some of the teams with one loss that have actually taken chances. Pitt's schedule has been pretty bad thus far. As much as I dislike Duke, I expect them to win by a fair margin on thursday at Pitt.

Yeah, they took a real RPI hit in Seattle. :D

semantics, i know, but i dont think it is considered "leap frogging" when you move ahead of teams that lost games. leapfrogging is when you jump teams that were either idle or won...
