My Top 25

Here’s my Top 25 for this week.
1, North Carolina
2, Connecticut
3, Pitt
4, Oklahoma
5, Texas
6, Louisville
7, Duke
8, Xavier
9, Gonzaga
10, Wake Forest
11, Syracuse
12, Purdue
13, Villanova
14, Marquette
15, Ohio State
16, UCLA
17, Notre Dame
18, Tennessee
19, Georgetown
20, Davidson
21, Baylor
22, Arizona State
23, Memphis
24, Missouri
25, Miami
The biggest question was probably where to put Gonzaga after the Zags lost to Arizona in what was pretty much a home game for the Wildcats. I only dropped them four spots, and that might have been too much considering how good I think Gonzaga is this year. That game may say as much about the fact that Arizona may be a little better than might have been thought after the coaching turmoil of the pre-season.
There weren’t a lot of other upsets to really change much with a lot of teams playing just one game during what was finals week at many schools.
And there still is no reason to have any more than two Pac-10 teams in the poll — and even the second one, Arizona State, looks a little shaky after it barely beat IUPUI. I dropped ASU a couple spots for that.
Clemson, at 10-0, moved into a lot of polls this week. But that’s a pretty soft 10-0 the Tigers have and for now, I sided with Miami as my new entry for this week with Kansas moving out.
