Fanta has us at 9, Seth Davis at 8 - 1 behind Creighton.  🙄

Why?
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Why?

Did UCONN drop 4 spots when they got pummeled in Omaha?

I asked Seth on X and he said because Creighton has better metrics in 3 of 4 categories and he doesn’t know when Kolek will be back.  At least Fanta didn’t have Creighton in the top 10.

Fanta’s vote doesn’t matter. Seth Davis dropped us two spots. He also had Michigan State on his “almost famous” list despite losing 3 in a row. I think we’ll get a fair rank tomorrow. I think it will be 6 but Iowa State and UNC are right there also. Sucks but dropping a us a bit cause Kolek is hurt is reasonable.

1 spot is fair.  I disagree with anything else.

UConn dropped from the top rated team to the bottom rated three loss team. Every other high major had at least 6 losses. Of course they didn't drop four spots.

1. Houston
2. UConn
3. Purdue
4. Tennessee
5. Arizona
6. Iowa State
7. Duke
8. Marquette
9. North Carolina
10. Creighton
11. Baylor
12. Illinois
13. Kentucky
14. Auburn
15. Kansas
16. South Carolina
17. Alabama
18. Gonzaga
19. Washington State
20. BYU
21. San Diego State
22. Saint Mary's
23. Utah State
24. South Florida
25. Nevada

I can't see us higher than 7, I think Arizona and Iowa State are locks to pass. I could see us falling as low as 11. We know that Kolek and Oso were missing and that the margin of victory Creighton had over us is misleading, but I don't trust all the voters to know that.

I'm guessing 8. Scoopers expecting mercy from the voters because of our missing stars will be disappointed.

CJ Moore of the Athletic didn’t move us saying he’s not going to have it against us losing at creighton without our 2 best.

It still doesn't "matter," but I think this will be one of the more interesting weeks to observe Marquette's movement in the rankings.

We have gotten a lot of respect from voters this season (and deservedly so). But this loss under these circumstances to an ascending team - amid the backdrop of most teams around MU winning ... I have to admit I'm looking forward to seeing where voters think we stand.

agreed. MU is better than CU…but besides my personal opinion of Creighton that means zip, I don’t see MU dropping lower than 8.

The casual voters (and I would say 90% plus are casual) are going to look at the final score and not know we stood with CU for 35 minutes toe to toe.  Those 90% probably also have zero clue that Oso was out and a flu was going through the team. Heck, 50/50 chance those casuals don't even know Tyler was out. Because of this, I say 9-10 will be our ranking.

WOW, I thought our 3 spot drop was bad for a road loss at then #12 Creighton without our 2 best guys.

Kansas dropped 7 spots for losing at then #15 Baylor by 8 points!  In March no less, with 29 games in the books!

8 is just fine, especially given what everyone ranked near us did last week.

Points-wise, we're well behind #7 UNC and just barely ahead of #9 Duke, but well ahead of #10 Creighton. Indeed, we're closer to UNC than to Creighton.

It's also nice to see three BEast teams in the top 10, and deservedly so IMHO.

Still getting plenty of respect from voters.

MU has gotten plenty of respect from the voters this season. That is a sign of a strong program.

Agree, poll watching has been fun this year. Can't complain. Next week will really be good. Either a UC win or loss - really weird dynamic. Assume X win....almost worth a scoop poll but waiting on pre BET to do one

Yep. And I thought this week's results would be particularly interesting to see given all that transpired.

I'm more than willing to rip clueless voters out there - and there are always some - but I'll also give credit for what they collectively have done this season, at least as far as Marquette is concerned.
