Answer time

Here are some answers to a few questions that have come my way.
Question: Is the UW-Oregon game on TV?
Answer: Yes, it’s on FSN-NW live at 8 p.m. Saturday’s Oregon State game is also on FSN. Of the next six games, the only one not available on FSN-NW is next Thursday’s game at Arizona State. That game won’t be shown since the Arizona-Washington State game will be on, instead. Hard to argue with that call right now.
Question: Anything new on Joe Wolfinger?
Answer: Not really. Obviously there are some minor changes in his status as he rehabs, but he’s almost certainly not going to play this season, which I’m assuming is what you are asking about. As for applying for extra years of eligibility, that can’t be done until later — he could theoretically still play this year, for instance.
Question: Why did you vote Notre Dame in your poll this week when they don’t look like a top 25 team?
Answer: I don’t have a good answer for that one anymore as Notre Dame lost to a middling St. John’s team last night. So ND will almost certainly fall out of my poll.
Question: What about Georgetown, which you have at No. 23? That seems high considering they don’t have any marquee wins?
Answer: Georgetown did win big at Michigan (which is 16-4 as I write this) and beat Notre Dame by a large margin, and among its losses are relatively tight defeats to Duke and Oregon and at Pitt. As I watch them, which I’m doing right now against DePaul, I see what looks like a deep team and still relatively young that should get better. And with their recent play, that’s what I felt they were doing — improving — which is why I’ve had them back in the poll recently. I also think the top of the Big East is still a strong league, though I know they are No. 7 in the RPI this week, due in large part to all the weak teams at the bottom. And for what it’s worth, Georgetown is No. 12 in the Pomeroy ratings this week.
