Only 2 top 25 teams, but another 5 receiving votes.  BEast will be a bloodbath.

Tough to move up without playing for a week. Once conference season rolls around it'll be better

My guess is the earliest we get ranked is the week of January 6 (likely have to go at least 4-1 in that stretch to get into the ranking).

There is no way we get ranked if we lose 1 of the next 5. Need to go 5-0.

I think if the loss was at Creighton, then maybe they would get to 25 or (there's also no clue what every other team does) but I was very tempted to say they will need to for sure go 5-0, but it could play out with a 4-1.

KenPom currently lists every Big East game as either Tier A or B except home games against Providence and St. John's. Gonna be a bloodbath.

Guru disagrees with your analysis.
Unless Sultan says differently that is, then we’d obviously have to go with that....

Beat Villinova, and then MU will be ranked, as I am not sure MU can beat Creighton, unless Markus goes off again there.

If Creighton doesn't shoot well they are very beatable. Even if they shoot well, we could dominate on the glass and beat them.

I think we match up a lot better with Creighton than we did last year. Loved Joey's offense but whatever Jay he guarded last season was basically a free three points every possession. This season we can throw out long and moblie guards and wings like McEwen, Sacar, Greg, Cain, and Bailey on all of their shooters and force them to drive into the paint where they are still good but not elite....and our paint defense has been elite this season.

As famous as they are for their three point shooting, they have at least 1 non-shooter on the floor at all times that our three headed monster can guard. If Mintz comes back and is shooting well then they can go into their patented 5 out offense.

The one thing I worry about in the Creighton game is who Markus guards. Last season Zegarowski was human and Markus could handle him. This season I'm afraid he will shoot over Markus every possession. He's too small too handle Ballock, Alexander, or Mahoney so he has to guard Zegarowski unless one of their backups (or Mintz if healthy) is on the floor. Markus is a solid defender but Zegarowski has become one of the elite offensive players in the country and slowing him down is a huge ask for anyone.

Superb analysis, TAMU. Thanks for all the knowledge on Creighton.

I'm really looking forward to that first week of conference play. We will be in Chicago, visiting our 5-month-old grand-twins (and their parents). Will watch the Creighton game at a nearby establishment, and we're going to the Nova game -- probably our only home game of the season. (Hoping to go to Georgetown.) If we're ranked 2 weeks from now, it will mean we had a great first week of January!

I'd put Markus on Ballock. They present some problems with three great shooters. You can't help off any of them. Mahoney looks good, but I don't think he's a lights out 3 pt shooter. Let Jefferson shoot as many 3s as he wants. Deny the lobs to Bishop and he's not a threat to score. I'm most worried about turnovers. Creighton doubles a lot and we seem to have a whole roster of guys that give away possessions too easily.

Sounds like we should roll with a Symir, Greg, Sacar, BB, Theo lineup
