University of Oklahoma Logoouguy2017's Ballot for Week 10 of 2017-18

Submitted on Monday, January 8, 2018 at 12:08AM EST
1 Villanova University Logo Villanova (3) Welcome back to the top spot. Still playing really well.
2 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia (4) Thought about WVU for #1. Ultimately they get slotted in at #2. Impressive against OU. Upcoming games: vs Baylor, at TTU, vs KU. Spooky
3 University of Virginia Logo Virginia (6) Virginia's defense is something else. Their offense was fairly good as well vs UNC.
4 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State (1) Welp. Graham Couch would say this is what MSU gets for not going on the road in the non conference, and he's somewhat right.
5 Purdue University Logo Purdue (8) 2 losses are by a COMBINED 7 points. Lots of home games during this stretch, but this week is huge. 2 road games in B1G play.
6 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech (15) Impressive win at AFH. Texas Tech's defense is really good. Going to be a fun one in the LNC
7 Duke University Logo Duke (2) Duke has struggled defensively. Still a young team, that will likely get it going sometime, but right now, they fall to 7th
8 Seton Hall University Logo Seton Hall (10) Everyone keeps sleeping on Seton Hall. Wins over Texas Tech, AT Louisville, vs Creighton and AT Butler. Keep sleeping on them
9 Wichita State University Logo Wichita State (11) Now that Wichita State is back to full strength, they are going to be one tough team to beat.
10 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati (14) Close game at Temple, but recovered nicely with a win over SMU. Still lacking a great win though
11 University of Arizona Logo Arizona (5) Bad loss at Colorado. Were outplayed the whole game. It was on the road, but still.
12 Arizona State University Logo Arizona State (7) See up above. Arizona State struggled shooting wise
13 University of Kansas Logo Kansas (13) Lost at home (GASP) to Texas Tech and then won at TCU. Big 12 still runs through Lawrence, but this KU team is hit and miss
14 University of Oklahoma Logo Oklahoma (16) Losing at WVU isn't bad and was expected. Do believe WVU exploited OU's weaknesses though. Someone besides Trae has to step up
15 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina (12) Both losses were on the road. 1 at FSU by 1, the other at Virginia.
16 Xavier University Logo Xavier (9) So many close games recently that Xavier was bound to lose.
17 Creighton University Logo Creighton (21) 3 losses are all to Top 25 teams away from home. Do lack great wins though
18 Texas Christian University Logo TCU (18) 2 home losses already in Big 12 play isn't ideal. Not sure what to think of the frogs.
19 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga (23) Kenpom likes you, but you could have helped yourself out by not being blown out at Nova and then losing to SDSU
20 Auburn University Logo Auburn (UR) Well, I was wrong on you guys. I thought you were phony, but you showed this week that you can win on the road vs a good team
21 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee (20) Lost at home to Auburn. Bounced back with a home win vs UK
22 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky (22) Losing at Tennessee isn't a bad loss, and to me, was expected.
23 Florida State University Logo Florida State (UR) Losing at Miami isn't a bad loss. Beating UNC by 1 was good
24 Clemson University Logo Clemson (24) Barely beating Louisville at home in OT was ok, but they won by what I expected. Travel arrangements may have played a part.
25 University of Miami (Florida) Logo Miami (FL) (UR) Ohio State, ND, Michigan, Florida, and Saint Mary's. Dropped: #17 Texas A&m (Need to get healthy), #19 Arkansas, #25 SMU
