EJSIC College Basketball Top 25 — Week 6

Pre-Season | Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 | Week 6

There were a lot of losses and near losses this week and the movement in the polls reflects that. Kansas dropped a spot after a near miss against USC and the Filthy Vols fell back to Earth a bit after two consecutive losses to mid-majors. Also bit by the mid-major bug were Illinois who lost to UIC and Baylor who lost to lowly Gonzaga (snicker).

Remember that this poll also includes a combined ballot from the polls submitted by readers. If you would like to have your poll included in the combined ballot, e-mail it to elitistjerksports@gmail.com.

EJSIC College Basketball Top 25 — Week 5

Pre-Season | Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5

After 4 seasons of the SEC/Big East Invitational, the series record now sits at 8-8. The “glass half-full” guy would call that a moral victory for a down SEC, while the “glass half-empty” guy would call that “kissing your sister”. [Insert inbred southerners joke here.] The Dirty Vols continued their climb up the top 25 this week, by pummeling #4 Pitt in Pittsburgh.  Duke played no one and Michigan State lost again. Sounds a lot like every season, doesn’t it?

With a whole week of actual recorded basketball under our belts, the time has come to have another look at our Top 25.  Despite the fact that none of the teams in our pre-season top 25 lost, there was still a lot of movement in week 1. Buyers remorse I guess.

EJSIC College Football Top 25 — Week 9

AP Poll

Coaches Poll

#1 lives to fight another day as Oregon trounced USC over the weekend. Aside from the predictable fall from grace for Michigan State and Missouri on the road, the games were relatively uneventful in terms of the national title picture. 3 straight weeks of #1 falling on their ass kind of spoiled me I guess.

Here are the week nine rankings. If you disagree with them, feel free to cry about it in the comments section.
