I'm thinking this will be the top 12 tomorrow assuming Nova takes care of business in the second half.

1. Duke
2. Virginia
3. Gonzaga
4. Tennessee
5. Kentucky
6. Nevada
7. Houston
8. Michigan
9. Michigan State
10. North Carolina
11. Marquette
12. Villanova

There will be an opportunity to get back into the top 10 next week with Michigan/Michigan State playing and UNC having to take on Duke. In a perfect world, Michigan loses at Minnesota then beats Michigan State. There's a possibility we could leapfrog both of them.

You may have to adjust nova now

Yep. Nova down, Kansas up to 12. Good for us, Continue to increase the gap between the top 11 and everyone else.

The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

In a perfect world, we win the national title to end the season No. 1!

I think Marquette will be 10...

Will Michigan state pass us with Ward’s injury?

They won two this week. We only played and won one. 5 votes will get made up from that alone.
Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.

I thought I read that he was going to do a clean slate redo on his rankings... if that's true, I can see why he'd rank them pretty decent.  An objective look at their resume right now looks pretty good.  I was down on LSU earlier this year because they hadn't done much, but it's been much improved lately. 

Now... about his ranking on MU... I think he just has a thing against MU and looks for reasons to not rank them that high.  Not sure if it's a conscious effort to do that or not though.

Davis has stated that his rankings are very much like a power ranking, rather than a season overview.

Marquette drops one spot to No. 11 in new AP 25 poll. Michigan State jumps up to No. 10 spot that #mubb occupied for two weeks.

Picked up points, but dropped due to MSU 2-0 week.  <Insert humble brag here>

Though I'd love to have stayed in the top 10, I don't hold it against the collective electorate for elevating a team that spend the week winning at Wisconsin and decisively at home against Ohio State over a team that beat only DePaul.

If we take care of business the next 3 weeks, I'm confident that we'll be back to No. 10 -- and likely better.

Go Marquette!

200 points from 9th last poll now less than 200 from 7th...

Poised to move up if Marquette keeps winning!  😎

I strongly disagree. Let’s see how things shake out today but I’d be shocked if marquette drops.

Kentucky two loss week would definitely, not maybe, drop them below us. Michigan two loss week ditto.

Unc won’t lose but even with a huge win would be neck and neck w MU imo. I can see us slightly behind or even ahead of them. Michigan lost to a putrid team (only 2 conference wins!) so I would guess that even if they win today in a close one they also fall very close to Marquette, either slightly ahead or we nip em by a small amount.

I’d say that even if MSU passes Marquette, which is no guarantee cause we looked good also, that MU sits no lower than 10 again. If I had to guess right now I’d say 8 but I’ll take another shot at it later tonight/tomorrow

To put the margins into perspective, the 200+ points we trailed (8) UNC by was larger than the the margin that (21) Iowa trailed (16) 'Ville.  'Ville went 1-1 (just like UNC), Iowa went 2-0 and 'Ville still has a 100+ point lead on them.  We cut the deficit to 142 points behind UNC, and only 59 behind MSU.  If UNC loses to Duke, MSU loses to Mich, and we go 2-0 this week, we could very well end up 9 next week, but as I stated earlier, just beating DePaul essentially does nothing in the eyes of the voters. 

Unless you knock off a top 5-10 team, margins like that don't disappear in one week.

Every word of this makes sense.

We are closer (point-wise) to No. 7 than we are to No. 12.

Yea, but here's where people that don't understand the system will really not be happy.  If we go 2-0 this week, and Kansas goes 2-0 this week, there's a (small IMO) possibility that they pass us (they would most definitely close the gap).  We are past the point where just winning automatically move us up, it also depends on what teams around us do.

Michigan loses to Minny but beats Sparty and Unc loses to Duke.

Should have us at 8 if we go 2-0
