Replace Koby with Sacar and he's not wrong.

Decided to take a quick peek. In the 6 games since he (like most Warriors) had a poor outing in Madison, Sacar is averaging 14.3 ppg., with .515 on FGs and .412 on 3s. Darn good.

In the same span, Koby's at 6.2 ppg on .190 FG and .200 arc. Yikes!

I still have faith that Koby will right the ship.
I'll be right eventually.

If Koby can find "it" again and Bailey/Cain can keep switching great performances we'll be a reall darn good team

I'm irrationally upset that Dayton's so far ahead of us. For a program that has zero to do with ours I really dislike them.

Maybe we'll replace DePaul in that one.

"I’ve been impressed with Marquette defensively. If you can guard and you have two players that are as good at getting a bucket as Markus Howard and Koby McEwen, you have a chance to win a bunch of games."

Methinks Mr. Dauster hasn't watched many of our games since Koby went for 23 and 19 vs Pur and Wis ... but I appreciate the sentiment.

Which is fundamentally why the human polls are wanting...it is impossible to watch every game and know what every team does.  They admit it, and comments like his prove it out.  Then asking them what happened 2 weeks ago, 6 weeks ago, 2 months ago....humanly impossible.
"I hate everything about this job except the games, Everything. I don't even get affected anymore by the winning, by the ratings, those things. The trouble is, it will sound like an excuse because we've never won the national championship, but winning just isn't all that important to me.” Al McGuire

I get that rankings at this point are meaningless but we have wins over Kansas state, USC, Davidson and Purdue which are all better than Villanova's top win. I get Nova is a sexy pick because of the recent success but the resumes are night and day. Our two losses are to the #3 team in the country and @ wisconsin who never losses at home.

And Nova's two losses are to #3 Ohio St and #11 Baylor.  It's not like they've been losing to schlubs.

The rankings are stupid this early because they are heavily influenced by pre-season rankings.  Lose, move down.  Win, move up.  Nova was like 10-15 preseason, so two losses push them to #20.  We were NR, so two losses keep us NR.  Oh well.  We can settle on the court in a few weeks.

Coach's/UPI poll is slightly kinder to the BE.  Butler #19, Nova #20 and Seton Hall #22 but MU with 8 votes vs AP with 11.

Call the polls whatever you want: "wanting" ... "stupid" ... "meaningless" ... etc.

All of those words (and others like them) are true.

Polls are unnecessary. They determine nothing. College basketball has this thing called the NCAA tournament that ultimately decides the sweetest 16 teams, the most elite 8 teams, the top 4 teams and the "best" team. Many argue that the tournament does not determine the "best" team, which I guess apparently means that system also is "flawed."

The polls are conversation pieces. I like it when our Warriors are ranked because it makes me feel good. Last year, when somebody noticed my MU sweatshirt, I liked being able to say, "Yeah, I'm a Marquette alum, and our basketball team is No. 10 in the nation this season. And we've got this crazy-good scorer named Markus Howard!" I like seeing our winning scores frequently on the ESPN scroll, a perk of being ranked. And it's probably nice for coaches to be able to point to a ranking when recruiting.

But "meaningful"? Nope. The good thing is all of us know that going in.

I'll be right eventually.

How do you think IU must feel?  The hired Archie Miller from Dayton and his old team is ranked and IU is not.  Does this mean IU is a step down from Dayton???

This week

Four BE teams ranked (Butler, Nova, Hall, X), two others (MU and Depaul) receiving votes.

Could see marquette being right around 27-28 this week.

North Carolina, Xavier and Seton Hall should all drop out of the top 25 from this past week.

Purdue should drop as well but they were not currently ranked.

He doesn't get a vote, but as of today Lunardi has us as a 6, which would indicate that he believes that we have a top 24 resume.  Bracketmatrix still has us as the last 7, although not everyone in the matrix has released a bracket sine K-State, and some of just straight up crazy/lazy having us in Dayton right now.
