It's only week one of CBS Blog Poll for College Basketball and we're already causing a raucus with my rankings, taking home the Mr. Bold award for week one. Check out that link for the overall rankings and discussion from the blog world.
Take a look inside for my Top 25...for this week.
2/9: So my rankings have provided us the title of Mr. Bold for the CBS Blog Poll for week one. Having Duke at #1 was probably the cause of that...as well as sneaking in BYU and Utah at the bottom of the poll. I look forward to next weeks discussion.
2/8: We're in. Butler's in. Georgetown is out. Gonzaga dropped. Our addition to the list may be more emotional/reactionary, but I do think we deserve it. Tied for 4th in the ACC with our only losses against Pitt, Duke, UNC, Northwestern (ugh) and at Miami. Any last thoughts?
2/7:The most represented conferences are the ACC and the Big East. Yes, I'm a total Homer for our conference and I think the Big East is the next best. I don't think the Pac-10 is quite there yet. I reward balance and gut feeling from watching games, hence the reason Louisville and Gonzaga sit so high. This is probably a little generous for the two teams and I could easily be convinced to move them down. Even though Duke got hammered by Clemson, I still think they are the top team in the country. They had a terrible night. Connecticut is a close second. They have an incredible center in Thabeet. Let me know you're thoughts. This is totally flexible and is a collective effort on behalf of Tomahawk Nation. I need to submit it Monday morning...so have at it.
