Poll position

It no longer affects the Huskies, but we’ll post the Top 25s for this week anyway.
Here’s the AP version, which shows mammoth amounts of respect for the Pac-10 with six conference teams ranked — UCLA (2), Oregon (13), Washington State (14), USC (19), Arizona (24) and Stanford (25).
I wasn’t quite as kind to the Pac-10, listing just four. Here’s my poll:
1, Florida
2, Ohio State
3, UCLA
4, Wisconsin
5, North Carolina
6, Texas A&M
7, Pittsburgh
8, Kansas
9, Memphis
10, Butler
11, Marquette
12, Nevada
13, Air Force
14, Washington State
15, Duke
16, Oregon
17, Oklahoma State
18, Kentucky
19, Georgetown
20, USC
21, Alabama
22, Vanderbilt
23, Kansas State
24, Texas
25, Gonzaga
Despite the big win over UW, Arizona has still lost six of nine. Stanford also lost a home game last week to Gonzaga, and I thought the Bulldogs looked like the better team throughout the game, so I couldn’t see rating the Cardinal and not Gonzaga. Hence, the Zags got my final spot, which would have gone to Stanford otherwise.
Here’s the coaches poll which was more in line with mine when it comes to the Pac-10, listing just four conference teams — UCLA (2), WSU (14), Oregon (15), USC (21).
