EJSIC College Basketball Top 25 — Week 8

Pre-Season | Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 | Week 6 | Week 7 | Week 8

After taking a week off for the Holidays (I think), the EJSIC Top 25 is back with a vengeance for Week 8. A lot has happened in the past two weeks. We found out Tennessee sucks, the SEC West is the worst collection of BCS teams in the modern era, and that Syracuse, Kentucky, and Texas are all better than we gave them credit for. With conference play already starting for a lot of teams, things should continue to get more and more interesting with each passing week.

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).

EJSIC College Basketball Top 25 — Week 4

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

Outside of UNC’s upset of #11 Kentucky in Chapel Hill, nothing Earth-shattering happened this week. Duke was still Duke in December and Michigan State was still Michigan State in December. I’m guessing both incarnations will be vastly different when March rolls around. The “down” Big East now sees itself represented by 6 teams in the top 25, the most for any conference. Barf.

EJSIC College Basketball Top 25 — Week 1

Pre-Season | Week 1

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.
