University of Memphis LogoSlimg7's Ballot for Week 10 of 2017-18

Submitted on Sunday, January 7, 2018 at 11:04PM EST
1 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia I went back and forth between Nova and WVU. I went with WVU because 1. They haven't lost since the 1st game of the year and 2. They had the
2 Villanova University Logo Villanova (cont. from above) biggest win of the week over a legit OU team. WVU and Nova at this point are 1a and 1b.
3 University of Virginia Logo Virginia UVA's only loss is to my #1 team. The beat down of UNC plus the losses this week moves them up big.
4 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State
5 Duke University Logo Duke I wanted to put them lower. Right now I don't believe in them. They struggle on the road, which is not good in the ACC. Frosh need to grow ^
6 Wichita State University Logo Wichita State They are looking really good with McDuffie back.
7 Xavier University Logo Xavier Tough loss on the road to Providence. Tough week ahead too. But this week gives them a chance to move back up.
8 Purdue University Logo Purdue
9 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech Huge win this week going to KU and winning.
10 Arizona State University Logo Arizona State
11 University of Oklahoma Logo Oklahoma Really struggled trying to figure out where to put them. But I came away impressed with them against a tough WVU defense.
12 University of Arizona Logo Arizona
13 University of Kansas Logo Kansas
14 Texas A&M University Logo Texas A&M Injuries and Suspensions aside, A&M has still started out rough in the SEC.
15 Texas Christian University Logo TCU
16 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati Beating SMU like they did was great. Offense looked improved and defense was what we expect.
17 Seton Hall University Logo Seton Hall Winning at Butler is a good win. They deserve to jump up big this week.
18 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina Bad week for UNC. Two losses, if it wasn't for a lot of other losses in the top 25, they may have been lower.
19 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky I debated where to place them. Came down to the fact that UNC beat Tennessee in Knoxville and Kentucky didn't.
20 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga I really wanted Gonzaga to be higher, but I just can't justify putting them above other winners this week like Cincy or Seton Hall
21 University of Miami (Florida) Logo Miami (FL) Bad loss to GT. I like them because of how athletic they are, but I also feel like they haven't put it all together yet.
22 Auburn University Logo Auburn Auburn keeps winning
23 Clemson University Logo Clemson So does Clemson
24 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee Kentucky was never really in the game this week against Tennessee. But they are put here because I can't put them above Auburn
25 Florida State University Logo Florida State Great win over UNC this week, tough loss to Miami. I think this week was the toughest yet. I changed everything at least 20 times.
