  1. I’ll be the first to say that I am shocked our poll came out with Georgetown over Pitt. Regardless of the outcome of today’s game with Nova. Also, New Mexico is getting shafted here.

  2. Whoever voted Tennessee over Vanderbilt from our panel is dumb. The Commodores beat the Vols by 9 in Knoxville and by 19 in Nashville. What else do they have to do to be ranked above Tennessee?

  3. I voted Georgetown over Pitt because they beat Pitt at Pitt… the difference was only one spot and didn’t include the results of today’s Nova game.

    I voted Vandy over Tenn because they beat them twice, yes.

    And as much as Texas has free-falled, there is NO way they shouldn’t be ranked. It looks like I may have been the only one to have ranked them, because I think I had them with 5 points. Look at their resume.

  4. Tennessee also beat Kansas and doesnt have a loss to WKU. I agree Vandy should be above them, but a win over UK in TBA would justify UT over Vandy despite the head-to-head results.

  5. Texas sucks balls. I don’t care what their resume says.

    UNC was pretty good to start the year, as was UCONN.

    Texas is in the middle of one of those types of swoons and I don’t see the point in ranking them until they prove they can come out of it.
