RankTeamReason
1 Duke University Logo Duke I don't see much reason to move most teams this week, 1 game doesn't tell much.
2 University of Kansas Logo Kansas My top 3 stay the same
3 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State not much to say here
4 Villanova University Logo Villanova
5 University of Arizona Logo Arizona Had UNC at 4 last week, mostly because preseason, and I probably tend to overrank the prior year's winner
6 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina I do think they deserve to be up here, though.
7 Wichita State University Logo Wichita State
8 University of Florida Logo Florida might have the weakest resume so far, imo, and play in a mid major conference
9 Texas A&M University Logo Texas A&M Big jump here. Beat WVU by 20+ without Robert Williams, I'm jumping on this hype train
10 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga
11 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati
12 University of Notre Dame Logo Notre Dame
13 University of Southern California Logo USC
14 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky Drop a bit this week with tight game to Vermont. But they won. and are talented. and still have Calipari.
15 Xavier University Logo Xavier
16 Seton Hall University Logo Seton Hall
17 University of Louisville Logo Louisville I had left them off my ballot last week after spending much consideration. The talent is there, we'll see how their season plays out
18 University of Miami (Florida) Logo Miami (FL)
19 University of Minnesota Logo Minnesota Ranked Minnesota, but left off Northwestern this week for their tight game
20 Saint Mary's College of California Logo St. Mary's It might not mean much as the season goes on. End of the day, wins matter
21 Purdue University Logo Purdue
22 Baylor University Logo Baylor
23 Texas Christian University Logo TCU
24 University of Alabama Logo Alabama New to my rankings this week, after I dropped WVU (certainly could stay- A&M is a GOOD team) and Northwestern
25 University of Virginia Logo Virginia Honorable Mentions: Missouri, West Virginia, SMU, Northwestern
