I was mostly surprised that Tennessee didn't benefit more from its own good road win.

Full poll:

How is Bucky still getting votes?

Also, it would be nice if Gonzaga can sneak into the top 10 next week. 5 top 10 teams in one tournament would be quite the sight.

RED is a good, vet team. No shame in losing to Tennessee. I’m not confident we win there in a few weeks.

Guessing the coaches poll was mostly submitted before St Marys debacle last night.

ONly thing that would explain them dropping only 1 spot for the L. While San Diego State dropped like 13 spots

Win out in Champaign-Urbana and Hawaii and a 3 ranking will be in our rear view mirror.

My suspicion is that we did not rise more because we haven't played anyone -- as of the polling date.

Exactly right brother dgies.  It's time to take care of business.  The opportunity is there beginning tomorrow night.  Play with confidence and relentless fury on both ends of the floor.

Long, long season. Going to be plenty of ups and downs, but exciting to be in the mix. The boys can go long way in in quality wins over next month, prior to BE action.

Hair is the bomb, height makes you clumsy, ask Muggsy

I like you, and brother dgies as well.  But when one attacks smaller citizens, without any provocation, I alert the DDF (Diminutive Defense Force).  I'm only going to write this once : tread lightly....very, very, lightly.  :)

are you confident winning at UW? They always seem to have a guy go off. Last season it was Chucky.

Hate to say it but Bucky has a solid, vet
team.  Hope we destroy them …. But I would not bet 5 bucks on it

I do not fear Madison, no. I mean, even Wojo was 4-3 against them. Who “went off” in those 4 losses? (Floppy tried to get Joey off, but that’s a whole nother story.)

It’s like GE03 saying “they always find a way.” Last season, they couldn’t even find their way into the NCAA tournament.

So I’m not giving Madison much thought with all the games we have coming up against actually good college basketball teams.

there’s no ‘fear’. Your description. But it’s a very distasteful loss. Johnny Davis went off last time at their joint. Chucky went off last season at FF. Davison, Traevon Jackson, Frank Kaminsky, Sam Dekker among others in recent years.  Imo the equal to a 5th or 6th place BE team, so very much ncaa caliber. (I wish they were not)  btw, you’d feel different if you lived here in WI. It’s easy to dismiss them when not among them. I’d say the most energized game of the season for Wisconsin residents/followers of either program.

It's a big game that week and it sucks for a couple days when we lose.  But I'd be perfectly fine with having similar (regular) seasons to last year every single year.  At the end of the day I'm going to remember a BE regular season and tourney title and not a loss to UW at home.  Or an ugly loss to MS State in a November tournament.

Yep, I really want Marquette to beat Madison, but I really want to win every game. And I realize that UConn, Creighton, Nova, etc, are more important games than Madison. Just as Madison's more important games are Michigan State, Illinois, Michigan, etc.

Viper, it's easy to bring up Madison players, including unlikely ones, who have beaten Marquette. But we also got big plays from the likes of Ed Morrow and a freshman Justin Lewis to beat them. That's basketball.

You are obsessed with Madison. That's cool ... it's part of your MU fandom.

But sure ... here's hoping our guys roll into Madison and steamroll the red turds. I'd vastly prefer that to the alternative.

What everyone needs to understand is the B1G teams are designed to beat other B1G teams, and not very much else (last night’s results notwithstanding).  That’s why a bunch of them make the dance but so few get to the Sweet 16.  Absolutely we can lose, but if we are cranking on all cylinders we’ll be hard to beat. I don’t think Stevie and Co. will let them slow the game down as much as Tennessee did.

It was a 71 possession game.  It wasn’t slow at all

Not having the stat for possessions in a game for everyone... 71 seems super low

If you were to score 2 points on every possession the game would be 71-71. That doesn't seem crazy high offense for a 100% shooting percentage.

71 would be middle of the road tempo and about 5 possessions per game more than any Greg Gard team
