I mean, over two weeks, Michigan State lost twice and lost 300 votes. I would expect about the same if we lost twice. They didn't move far down in the rankings because they had over a 200 point lead on 7th place when they were in 6th in Week 12. For comparisons sake, we would drop to 15th if we lost the same amount of votes that Michigan State did.
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.

Totally happy to be a top-10 team.

Two wins this week and we'll move up.

A bunch more wins before the season ends and we'll move up more

We are Marquette!

He pretty much copy and pastes KenPom and then only moves teams a few spots from there.

Yea I get it. Probably some of my KenPom annoyance coming out too. Like seeing early KenPom darlings like OU and NCSU start to falter

Resumes aside, MSU wins the eye test as well.  That is a good team.  And KenPom has them at Top 10 in both offense and defense.  Most years those years those types of teams are minimum Elite 8.

I think we would be all happy with an Elite 8 result this year.  That may be MSU's floor.

And we looked doubly garbage against Indiana in November.

Crud happens.

With Langford officially done now. A key for MSU will be Ward.

He had been great this year but the last two games have been brutal for the most part. Inefficient FG% and awful free throw shooting. It’s probably just a couple off games, but they need him back to form.

MSU and/or Michigan better get their sh1t together in a hurry before that rat ba$r-tard Madison team sneaks up and bites them in the a$$.  It would really suck for the hated vermin to win that conference after the way they started.

You don't have to care, but I work with some UW@Mad grads and they're insufferable when they have success.

I honestly thought the women were topped out at 10, and it seems weird that they leap frogged 1-loss NC State.  But I'll take it.

Better chance at a 2-seed? Men or women?

Men forsure. Even if the Marquette women’s team win out which it highly likely, it won’t make much of a difference.

Would have been nice to see ISU lose tonight, Shayok playing at a really high level.

Latest bracketology from Charlie Creme has MU a 3-seed playing into that same NC State as a 2-seed.

Shayok was the one transfer I really wanted that offseason.

As much as I appreciate what Sacar brings, it would be incredible if we had Shayok in that spot, with Sacar available to back up him and Sam.

Not sure if Wojo had any communication with Shayok at all, though, and I'm plenty happy with our team. We're better than Iowa State!

Having him sit a year to play a year probably wasn't in the cards.  Joey being able to come in a semester early was really, really nice for this team.

Yeah, I don't know all the dominoes that would have fallen because I don't follow recruiting and its implications as closely as some others do.. I simply have always really liked Shayok's game.

I say 10.  Michigan State and Kansas both lost this week.   The Nova win is good enough to negate a one point loss.  Holding steady.

Wouldn't be surprised. Houston was 200 points behind us. VT was 100 behind but lost twice. Everyone else was very far behind. I'd guess 11 with Houston passing us if they win tomorrow but 10 wouldn't be shocking

Can someone compile a list of how teams 9-16 did this week? I feel like everyone, but Houston, went 1-1. I would, but it seems like a lot of work haha!
