University of Virginia LogoSnasty728's Ballot for Week 10 of 2017-18

Submitted on Sunday, January 7, 2018 at 10:23PM EST
1 Villanova University Logo Villanova +3 from my poll last week. If you want to measure how crazy this past week was, 4 of my top 5 teams from last week lost this week.
2 Duke University Logo Duke -1
3 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia +4, god damn these guys are good. Wouldn't be surprised to see them jump to 2nd this week.
4 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State -2, believe it or not, MSU was in line to finally be ranked ahead of Duke in this poll before they lost to OSU.
5 University of Virginia Logo Virginia +3, hate to show bias in these comments, but I couldn't be more excited for when DeAndre Hunter enters the starting lineup next year.
6 Xavier University Logo Xavier -1, Xavier's and Oklahoma's movements are because of the losses of ASU and A&M.
7 University of Oklahoma Logo Oklahoma +2, I gotta give credit to Trae Young here. It's tough for a 19 year-old to go toe to toe with a 45 year-old man like Jevon Carter.
8 Wichita State University Logo Wichita State +2
9 Arizona State University Logo Arizona State -6, was this week a hiccup in the midst of a historic season, or the beginning of an epic collapse?
10 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech +6, raise your hands if you thought Texas Tech would be in the top 10 by January...that's what I thought.
11 Purdue University Logo Purdue +0
12 University of Kansas Logo Kansas +1, Another team assisted by the collapse of TA&M, plus beating TCU doesn't hurt either.
13 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina -1, see a theme here? Damnit Aggies, why did you pick this exact week to collapse?
14 University of Arizona Logo Arizona +1, Arizona is going to be held back by their failure in Atlantis for the rest of the season in these polls.
15 Texas Christian University Logo TCU +3, had a second look at TCU. That win over Baylor really saved their
16 University of Miami (Florida) Logo Miami (FL) +1, losses against NMST and GT are going to haunt Miami in these polls and for seeding in March madness.
17 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky -3, despite moving down, Kentucky is now the highest ranked SEC team in my poll.
18 Seton Hall University Logo Seton Hall +1
19 Auburn University Logo Auburn NEW, reminder that Temple has beaten Auburn, Clemson, ODU, and South Carolina, but they have also lost to GW and La Salle. Seriously, wtf?
20 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati +1, oh, and Temple only lost to Cincy by 2. The American is such a weird conference.
21 Florida State University Logo Florida State +4, if it weren't for their win over UNC, there is a chance that FSU would slip into the next 15.
22 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee +0, similarly, if Tennessee didn't beat Kentucky, UT would definitely not be ranked.
23 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga +1
24 Clemson University Logo Clemson NEW, Clemson plays Miami, UNC, ND, and UVA in a four game stretch starting Saturday. If they somehow win all of those, they might be top 10.
25 Texas A&M University Logo Texas A&M -19, Next 15: Arkansas, Baylor, Creighton, ND, Michigan, Houston, UCLA, Syracuse, Louisville, Florida, NMST, OKST, Texas, Butler, and OSU.
