GTown was way overated.
What are you basing this assertion on? I think they're a very good team that struggled shooting the ball against us, due in part to our defense. They took IU to overtime and beat everyone else they've played including UCLA before coming into MKE.

My guess is nothing, though I'm sure he'll argue otherwise. Every post is bashing anyone who asserts this team is any good. Even if they do lose 2 of their next 3, I still think they can get to 11-12 Big East wins. Start 3-2 and if we win 2 of the 3 after that against Providence and USF at home, we'll be 5-3.

Look at the remaining games and tell me we shouldn't win at least 5 of those. I'm sticking with this team reaching 12-6 and finishing in the top-4.

Hope you are right.  Saturday will be a good test, so Pitt play Saturday and I was not overhelmed, thought they would be better.  Adams there center is way overated, the rest of the
team was average.  It shows that incoming freshman have a long way to go before they are the difference.  Maybe the kids Kentucky recruit, not this year, but last can live up to the
hype.  Shazbuzz Muhammend and Kyle Anderson are good players but it sounds like they might be both top 5 picks in the draft, I feel bad for those teams that have to pay them that
kind of money.  There good and might be great in 4 years, but not now.

.....in our hearts.  Probably #23ish
Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.

We'll be ranked. I'd guess 22-24 range.

#13 Illinois getting whooped up by Badgers right now.  Itd be kinda nice if they did well today for RPI purposes

Illinois lost to Minnesota earlier too, they'll likely take a big hit in the polls as well.

MU's RPI is up to #24 right now.

Too hard to say exactly where until tomorrow, but I'd say 22-24 sounds about right.
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.

I think there is a rule that teams that lose to UWGB can not be ranked.

Today's win goes a long way toward moving beyond that.  We would have certainly been ranked last week were it not for that performance.  But wins against UConn, GTown and Pitt will be noticed.

guessing "also receiving votes" still.  One more solid win and we are in the top 25 again.

I think you're probably right... but we could be right on the edge

Have to agree that we will probably still be in the others still receiving votes, especially in coaches since we got very little love last week. Would have helped if Pitt was still ranked going into today.

They will definitely be ranked. Ill guess 23.

Three solid wins will dim the UWGB loss.

College and professional athletics, at their essence, are children's games played by young adults for the spectator's entertainment. In the grand scheme of the world, none of us should care about any of the games and none of it is relatively important in the least.

But we do care because we as fans like to see the institutions and teams we root for do well. One of the ways we can gauge how Marquette is doing is by the the two major polls. One of those polls is by the writers who cover the sport as journalists more extensively than any of us could. The other is by the coaches who coach the sport at a higher level than any of us could. So when Marquette, our school and our team, is doing well in the polls, well, it matters to us. And on a small level it is important as it keeps us connected and gives us entertainment.

Also, on a more practical level, if a team is ranked for most of the season, it is a lot more likely that the selection committee will look favorably on them and put them in the tournament. There are not a lot of slots given to unranked teams that do not win their conference's automatic bid.

In addition, ranked teams get vastly more media exposure. This media exposure leads to greater ticket sales and more merchandise sales. It also helps recruit not just athletes, but students who may not otherwise consider Marquette for college.

So it does matter, in a sense. In fact, it matters a lot.

You sum it up well.  Visibility for the university is much higher when ranked because there is simply more coverage of ranked teams. 
That said, I think we still should be jsut outside the top 25 - so I am guesssing the votes MU garners this week will put us at 26.
