Jumped Buffalo and Mississippi State but that's all.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

I wasn't expecting a massive jump, but 18 to me is still disrespectful. We haven't gotten the national love this team deserves..yet. Make them notice.

Rothstein had us at 13 in his tweet and 24 on his ballot. 2 voters that had MU unranked has Kansas State, Buffalo and Wisconsin ranked...

How do these people have jobs?

It is fun to have a team successful enough to feel disrespected.

On the mark. Think of the last few years for perspective.

I’m really trying to think objectively and I can’t see how the resumes of the 17 teams are better than ours. I do think that playing only one true road game (and getting crushed) is holding us back. Let’s go to work and win some conference road games!

All comes down to road wins. If we beat St. Johns and Nova on the road we will get a big jump. We have 3 top 15 wins but all were at home.

Also keep in mind that we were jumped by Kentucky and Arizona state for big wins against North Carolina and Kansas. Without those wins Marquette is sitting at 16.

Because credibility is not required.

The year that Ted Williams hit .406? He lost MVP because one writer did not have even him on his ballot because he thought Ted wasn't respectful enough to writers.

Credibility is not required.

Kentucky and ASU were ahead of us last poll by the same margin so they didn’t jump us

ASU also picked up a loss this week.

I expect they'll be ranked just as soon as they beat someone. Seton Hall on the road may be enough. Seton Hall and Marquette definitely would be. That #344 SOS and zero top-50 wins is pretty unconvincing.

Yeah I get ya. My point was more in regards to TT. Whose ranked 11th with 1 loss and has a similarly awful SOS with really minimal in the way of wins...yet SJU is the one punished.

I just don’t get the TT love affair.

It’s similar to the Purdue love affair a few weeks ago.

Nice to see us show up in rankings, but all that really matters is what the guys do on the court.  Keep winning, get more respect..
I mean, OK, maybe he's secretly a serial killer who's pulled the wool over our eyes with his good deeds and smooth jumper - Pakuni (on Markus Howard)

He has us at 13 on his ballot.

It takes longer to update the "by voter" pages on the AP Poll. You were probably looking at last week's Rothstein ballot.

EDIT: I see MuMark beat me to it

18

https://collegebasketball.ap.org/poll
Good news is Buffalo is 21 and 22 in the polls respectively . They will likely stay around that level now that their conference starts.

MU is 20 in the coaches poll.

I just don’t get the TT love affair.

That's a fair comment, and I was actually thinking the same while looking at Tx Tech's resume yesterday. I think it's twofold.

First, the computers love them. They are #1 in eFG% defense, #1 in 3PFG% defense, #2 in 2PFG% defense, & #1 in adjusted defensive efficiency at kenpom.

Second, it's the manner of victory they have. Their home wins have been against weak opposition, but by a minimum of 18 points and an average of 26.3 ppg. Their non-buy games have all been double digit wins. St John's only has one buy win that matches the average of TTU and has struggled with some weak opposition like Bowling Green, Cal, & VCU.

Also probably doesn't hurt that Beard's teams have a tendency to exceed expectations, while Mullin's teams have tended to fall flat as the season progressed.

Went through and checked, we are still unranked by three ballots: Damien Sordelett (Liberty beat writer for The News & Advance), Jesse Newell (Kansas beat writer for Kansas City Star), and Scott Wolf (USC beat writer for LA Daily News)

Our highest rank was #10 and given to us by Shannon Ryan of the Chicago Tribune.

Alright people you know what to do. Time to make the invisible hand of scoop known. Everyone go subscribe to the Chicago Tribune. If you have subscriptions to the News & Advance, KC Star, or LA Daily News cancel them. Follow up with a letter writing campaign to make sure they know why.

Coming from a doctor v, I’ll take it as a compliment either way.
