What I think the AP rankings will look like tomorrow:

2. Florida (19-3)

They got smoked by a crappy Arkansas and stay at #2?

Don't see any chance Notre Dame doesn't hop over us.  We lose to Louisville by 20.  Notre Dame beats Louisville.  Not to mention all the publicity they got from the win because it went into 5 overtimes.  Plus the hype that was surrounding Louisville because they were "back into form" after stomping us.  Notre Dame will be higher.

Agreed.

I have no problem with ND staying ranked right with us. Will make spanking them next month all the sweeter!

Not too surprising. A lot of teams in front of us had terrible weeks.

#20 in the Coaches' Poll. Not too shabby.

This is why you cannot EVER take the Coaches poll seriously...it's the AP that matters. On what planet should UW be ranked higher than MU?? MU has fewer losses, beat them head to head and is tied for the BE lead. UW won a game in OT on a lucky shot, big F'n deal.

Well I am certainly no badger fan but they have 4 or 5 wins that are better than our best win.  That could be why.

now stop making me think about them.   ;D

None of them matter. The difference between being ranked 18th and 20th is utterly meaningless, even in terms of media exposure.

The difference between being ranked 2nd and 25th is meaningless.  It's all about just getting your name in the media.

18th should be high enough where if we split the two games this week, we will remained ranked.

Agreed Titan a split this week probably keeps us ranked. While rankings really mean little to me I do think being ranked is important for the program.

Two games against teams ranked in the teens this week - huge opportunity to make a statement nationally, make a move up NCAA seeding-wise, and gain more separation in the Big East standings.

Where in the hell do you see 4 or 5 wins better than @Pitt and Gtown, @IU and Michigan are givens (even though they were insanely lucky in the Mich game) then maybe @Illinois, which is being very generous. All in all, that is a ridiculous statement.

As a side note - I actually agree with IU being ranked #1 even though they lost this week.  They have some big wins after the last couple weeks and have not lost by more than 5 points.  And having watched several of their games, Victor Oladipo is the most impressive player I've seen this year.  Now I hope they lose out the rest of the way, as unlikely as that is (approaching 0%).

Out of 31 voters, Wisconsin has a 6 point lead on Marquette in the latest SID poll.  Basically tied.

Head to head won't matter in the polls.  Too many other things to consider.  ND just beat Louisville, but Louisville is still ranked ahead of ND and should be. Just one example.

I agree with this. They have two lottery picks (neither of whom are freshmen), two 4 year senior starters and a McDonald's AA freshman as starters and one of the top 6th men in the country. In a year without much at the top they stand out. If they stumble a couple of times down the stretch they'll still get a #1 seed. Even a relative collapse means a #2. I don't like them, but given Duke without Kelly, Michigan's recent setbacks, Kansas's implosion, etc. the Hoosiers are pretty solid favorites to take it all.

True, but losing a game in 5 overtimes that you had easily in hand is a bit different that being smoked by double digits.

Even though Florida got their doors blown off at Arkansas, I still think they're the other top contender.  The separation likely lies in the fact that IU will be more battle-tested going through the Big Teen gauntlet, wheras Florida should make a mockery out of a really bad SEC.

Agreed. Whatever respect the SEC once had this year has been lost with Mizzou's plight into mediocrity--they are absolutely dreadful on the road.
