Syracuse University Logofalconlover79's Ballot for Week 11 of 2017-18

Submitted on Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 10:47PM EST
1 Villanova University Logo Villanova (LW: 1) Villanova easily brushed aside Xavier; no question about who is the team to beat right now
2 Duke University Logo Duke (LW: 2) This team still has all the talent in the world, but they need to prove they can win on the road, Miami stands in the way next.
3 University of Virginia Logo Virginia (LW: 6) This may be Tony Bennett's best team in Charlottesville, they better not be looking ahead to Duke, however.
4 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia (LW: 3) No shame in losing in Lubbock, and with Esa Ahmad back the Mountaineers still may be Big 12 favourites. KU may disagree.
5 Wichita State University Logo Wichita State (LW: 5) The Shockers are quietly taking care of business in their new conference, while waiting for the Cincinnati games to come.
6 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech (LW: 9) Have to admire the resiliency of this Red Raiders team to come off the loss to OU with that great performance on Saturday.
7 University of Oklahoma Logo Oklahoma (LW: 11) Have you heard about our lord and savior Trae Young? He willed the Sooners to a solid win over TCU to keep OU in a tie for 1st.
8 Purdue University Logo Purdue (LW: 10) Michigan is a good quality win, something the Boilers don't have a ton of chances for left on the schedule.
9 Xavier University Logo Xavier (LW: 8) Xavier proves that they are definitively the 2nd best team in the Big East, not a bad place to be.
10 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State (LW: 2) Figured this Spartans team would bounce back better than they did, luckily the B1G offers quite a few easy games for MSU.
11 University of Arizona Logo Arizona (LW: 12) Hard to gauge these Wildcats, loads of talent but not showing it against the PAC 12's inferior talent.
12 University of Kansas Logo Kansas (LW: 14) I wanted to see Kansas play a little better against the "weaker B12 teams" at home, but at least they pulled out 2 wins.
13 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati (LW: 15) Much like Wichita, the Bearcats are beating teams they should beat, and waiting for the Shockers to come to town.
14 Auburn University Logo Auburn (LW: 16) The SEC is currently controlled by Auburn, and the conference is not even having a down year. That's how strong Auburn is this year
15 Arizona State University Logo Arizona State (LW: 7) Only 2-3 in Pac 12 play so far, with close wins against Utah and OSU. Sun Devils need to play like its 2017 again.
16 Seton Hall University Logo Seton Hall (LW: 13) How will this team respond after getting demolished by Marquette? Games against Creighton and Xavier will let us know
17 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina (LW: 20) Really curious to see how this team plays against Clemson. They've been a tough team to figure out this season so far.
18 Clemson University Logo Clemson (LW: 17) The Tigers are playing well, especially at home. On Tuesday they have a chance to win in a place they've never won before.
19 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky (LW: 19) Interesting week for this Cats squad, road test @SC and then the Gators come to town. @WVU is looming as well.
20 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga (LW: 21) Finally the time is here. Gonzaga faces Saint Mary's this week in their 1st real test of the conference season.
21 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada (LW: 22) I believe this team can go toe to toe with most P6 squads, but they have to continue to prove it, @BSU on Saturday should be fun.
22 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee (LW: NR) The Vols continue to show out against quality SEC opponents, two more tough road games this week.
23 Texas Christian University Logo TCU (LW: 18) Yes, they are 1-4 in the conference; however, none of those losses made them look bad. Not as much room for error left though.
24 Ohio State University Logo Ohio State (LW: NR) Holtmann has this team way ahead of schedule and Bates-Diop is a big part of this turnaround.
25 Boise State University Logo Boise State (LW: NR) Chandler Hutchison is the best player that almost no one has heard of. Next 5: Florida State, Michigan, Miami, Florida, URI
