We did what we needed to this week and Kansas has already lost so no moving down for us this week. All the teams above us have won so far, 7-0.

Best chance to move up is if Louisville can take out North Carolina at the Yum. The rest of the games the top 10 team will likely be favored. Maybe Florida can knock off Kentucky at home.

Michigan State lost Joshua Langford for the season. That's a huge blow and may result in them dropping out of the top 10 eventually.

They’ve been without him since late December.

I think it’s more a blow to their title chances than staying in the top 10. They’ve clocked a lot of BIg10 teams without him

Just announced he's done for the season, had thought he would be able to come back. They've done well so far but I think their toughest games are yet to come. Two games against Michigan plus a road game at Wisconsin. If we keep winning, could mean we pass them.

Yeah I know it was announced just meant that it’s at least been something they’ve been used to.

But you are right their schedule is getting tougher. I’d love for them to skid like Kansas. More chances at Des Moines?? Yes please.

The good news is that we are done playing for the week and added a W and no Ls.  Lots of opportunities for the teams ahead of us to lose.
Have some patience, FFS.

I'm comfortable hanging out around 10 for another week. We'll have our chance to make a major statement next week.

As noted in another thread, we have won 16 of 7 for the first time in 40 years. This got me thinking ...

If we started the season 16 - 1 and then went 3 - 2 to get to 19-3, playing exactly the same teams ...

My guess is we would have been ranked between #3 and #1 by game 17 and would be ranked between #5 and #8 after a 3 - 2 stretch with losses to KU and IU.

Do you agree?  Does the sequence of winning matter for rankings as much as I suggest?

wed probably beat kansas now that they're without their all star center. IU and SJU are a different story that fit your point better.

I don't think we would have been between #3 and #1 with a 16-1 start. 17 games in Tennessee was 16-1, Duke was 15-2 (but still getting #1 votes), Virginia was 16-1, Gonzaga was 15-2 (but still getting #1 votes), Michigan was 17-0, Michigan State was 15-2 (but still getting #1 votes). I think all six of those teams would have still been above Marquette...maybe not Michigan State. I think 3-2 from there drops us below Kentucky and probably Nevada. Maybe the sequencing would have gotten us one spot higher above North Carolina.

Sounds like VT might be without Justin Robinson for a while.

We passed them but it still could pay dividends. Keep them behind us, drop their seed, give UL a better chance to beat them.

Hell, winning at NC State without him won't be a walk in the park either

No. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised to see them stay #5. If they fall, I don't think they fall further than #7 (assuming Michigan State and Kentucky win today).

Let's go, Fighting Hookers of Louisville. It's silly but I want that single digit next to our name for NMD. FOX game, another Top-15 team in our house, lot's of eyes. Pick up two wins next week and we may find ourselves in uncharted territory. Yes, I'm getting way ahead of myself here.

I remember last season coming down to the final weekend and if we won 8 of our final 2 we'd have a shot at the conference title.
