University of Massachusetts Amherst LogoJamesBCrazy's Ballot for Week 2 of 2018-19

Submitted on Monday, November 12, 2018 at 2:55AM EST
1 University of Kansas Logo Kansas (Last Week: 1)
2 Duke University Logo Duke (4) We're going to have to see the /r/collegebasketball banner in Blue Devils colors for another couple months. Great.
3 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina (3)
4 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga (5)
5 Auburn University Logo Auburn (9)
6 University of Virginia Logo Virginia (6)
7 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee (7)
8 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada (11)
9 Villanova University Logo Villanova (12)
10 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State (8)
11 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky (2) ...How do you lose by this much on so big a stage? I'll put it up to Duke being good rather than UK being bad and/or jitters, but still.
12 Syracuse University Logo Syracuse (13)
13 Florida State University Logo Florida State (16)
14 University of Nebraska-Lincoln Logo Nebraska (17) The only problem with blowing out terrible teams is when you're expected to do so.
15 Purdue University Logo Purdue (15)
16 Kansas State University Logo Kansas State (10) Down six spots despite not losing. That's how you can tell it's week 2.
17 University of Oregon Logo Oregon (25) Okay, I admit it. I had Washington too high and these guys a bit too low.
18 Indiana University Bloomington Logo Indiana (18) You know what would be great? Teams scheduling actual opponents the first couple weeks.
19 Mississippi State University Logo Mississippi State (21) Not to be confused with Mississippi Valley State. Not like I would ever drunkenly choose the wrong team by mistake, of course.
20 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech (NR) "VT" is a much easier abbreviation to remember than "VPI." Just hope that no one from Vermont complains.
21 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia (14) I applaud your taste in music. It's almost as annoying as what we have up here in Amherst. (By the way, Fallout 76 is crap.)
22 University of California, Los Angeles Logo UCLA (20)
23 Marquette University Logo Marquette (NR) Computer models are really really dumb early on the year, so I'm relying on Kenpom a bit more than usual.
24 Clemson University Logo Clemson (22) Shoutouts to UTSA, Quinnipiac, Jacksonville, and Delaware State, who managed to rank worse than "generic D2 team I know nothing about."
25 Louisiana State University Logo LSU (NR) Also to Niagara, who starts their season today, and Canisius and Colorado, who open their schedules tomorrow.
