We should be #1. In Highlander style, you beat the best you become the best.

But in all honesty, I do think we'll jump into the rankings as long as we take care of business against Providence. I think we'll come in at #21.

No team in the top 25 has more than 5 losses. I don't think we make it yet

The courage to change the things I can,

No easy games in BE this year, I am afraid. Even DePaul is dangerous.
Have some patience, FFS.

Does any 5-loss team in the country have wins over the No. 1 and 7 team in a 3-day span while also having no "bad" losses?

Our win was featured prominently on TV and the interwebs last night. FS1 ran a BREAKING NEWS! banner for more than an hour. That's some good pub. If we do what we should against Providence - although it probably won't be easy - I think we'll slip in to the bottom 5 of the top 25.

I absolutely agree, chickadee. I mean, DePaul almost beat both Nova and Butler.

I fully expect to lose at least a couple of games that we "should" win, events that no doubt will bring out the Fire Wojo-ers who have gone into hiding the last few days!

Well, Pitt is looking more and more like a "bad" loss every day.  But at the least,  we're going to get some votes.

We'll get a few votes next week if we beat Providence. but we won't be ranked. Too many losses at the moment.

If we can string together 3 straight wins against Providence, St Johns and Depaul, we might crack the top 25 the week of 2/6 depending on the number of losses of teams currently ranked 20-25

Rankings matter.  It means we are winning and I like winning.  It means more winning in the future if we can stay ranked.  It means we get more exposure which leads to better recruits which leads to more winning.  Winning=ranked= wins>losses

Another positive is this is the first time I posted in over 2 years since I came to this site specifically for the what are we ranked on Monday argument that morphs into whether or not rankings matter.

I think we get in with three straight wins including against two top 10 teams. Oddly, I think the win over Nova gives our win over Creighton more consideration.

Too bad creighton is taking a poop right now-their loss to Georgetown on the road stings a little unless georgie is turning over a new leaf.  In that game however, creighton was only a 2 point fav and that really surprised me.  I jumped on it on bovada and got my chit handed to me-should have listened to my picks n parleys dude-he's been pretty accurate-damn.  At the time we beat creighton however, I think they were ranked 7 or so

Because Marquette will always be number one in my heart.

Perhaps a vote or two. 

With Gtown winning twice this. Week, it makes the case that th BE is pretty damned tough now.

I think there should be a ban on bumping this thread until after we have played all our games for the week. It seems like every time this thread gets bumped after Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday game, we lose the Saturday/Sunday game.

That is probably a good sign that the team is not good enough to be ranked.

Maybe. But if we are 1 point away from being ranked, that's a lot better than I could have hoped for preseason!

Agreed. Preseason hopes of 6th or 7th in BEAST and a solid NIT invite. So consideration gets me al happy in the pants. And having this opportunity to make the NCAA's clearly without bubble makes me excited also.

Time to revive this thread.  8 years ago, this topic was pertinent each week of the season.

I say 17 to start the season.

I think receiving votes. Chartouny won't move the national perspective and I think Xavier, Butler, and Creighton are more likely to show up in the rankings than we are.

You have to earn a national ranking.

We have not earned it yet.

So maybe a handful of votes and then we'll see. By year's end, I would expect a solid Top 15ish to Top 10ish team.

Frankly, I'd rather be "under the radar" and shock teams going into the season rather than ranked and disappoint if people don't notice us.
