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.

Any voter who put Marquette lower than 10 didn’t watch Saturday’s game and only saw the final score.

Well then prepare to frown, because Duke is #9.

To be clear,  i don't think that's what they deserved but i thought that's what they would get.  I thought the voters would get overexcited about a week with 2 double digit victories

It will be a bummer to see us ranked behind Creighton, as we are the better team when healthy - and were darn close to being the better team the last time we played them, even without Kolek and Oso - but that's life in the big city.

TAMU, brew, others ... could they get Indy over Marquette?

On bracketmatrix, we're holding onto the last 2 seed, followed by Baylor, Creighton, Duke and Kansas. A lot more 3s than a couple weeks ago, but still nary a 4.

Creighton definitely MIGHT get the spot in Indy over MU. IMHO the resumes are competitively close now and what happens in the BET could tip the balance, especially if they play each other again.

I think the results over the weekend with MU winning and several of the competitors for the 2 and 3 seeds losing significantly reduced the chances of MU dropping to a 4.

I think there is a great chance that Providence upsets Creighton. Providence needs imo 1 more solid win to punch there ticket even if that means 11 seed play in. I don't think its a forgone conclusion that Creighton wins that game.

It is very close from where I have Marquette (7) all the way down to the top half of the 4-line Kansas (14). I think this Championship Week will be important for the protected seeds because it's very tight. If Marquette gets to the Big East Final, I think a 2-seed is assured. If Creighton gets there over us, especially if Kolek is healthy, I think we could drop to a 3-seed. I have a more detailed conference by conference rooting guide posted today and am planning to join Scrambled Eggs this week to discuss all things Marquette bracket related.

Another angle on the Indianapolis issue is that Memphis is about the same distance from Omaha as Indianapolis.

So, if Creighton was just ahead of MU, and spots in both places were still open, they could put Creighton in Memphis and MU in Indy.

I’m a big advocate for Indy because I’m not a huge roadtrip guy (though I’m going regardless), but the one thing going for MU is the committee didn’t even have Creighton in the top 16 in their reveal. Sure they’ve made up ground, but they probably need to make up more ground than we may think.

But yes, I agree that Creighton could get Memphis instead. Kansas can get pushed to Pittsburgh as they should have dropped considerably.

Thanks brew. (And others.) Agree that it looks so bunched up this year.

For those looking for bright spots and believe in weird coincidences

Last season UConn was ranked 10th to end the regular season……….. 8-)

I had them dropping lower too but you gotta look at the total votes, not just the ranking.

Arizona lost 127 votes. The difference between Zona at #6 and Duke at #11 is 154 votes, so 6 teams all bunched together very close. Last week, the differnece between #6 and #11 was 311 votes, over double what it is this week.

No conspiracy,  Zona just had a lead already and the team right behind them lost to an almost equally bad K State team
