University of Massachusetts Amherst LogoJamesBCrazy's Ballot for Week 5 of 2018-19

Submitted on Monday, December 3, 2018 at 2:15AM EST
1 University of Kansas Logo Kansas My normal computer ranking (XSRS) only uses current-season information. It's December, so don't expect it to be fully accurate.
2 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga Literally 20% of my adjusted ranking is just taken from Kenpom/Sagarin with no adjustments right now. I figure they've got it roughly right.
3 Duke University Logo Duke XSRS makes up another 20% all on its own, leading to large discrepancies when it over/underrates a team.
4 University of Michigan Logo Michigan Example: Kansas State was 12th on last week's AP and Reddit polls and they lost @ a decent Marquette so they're naturally dropping...
5 University of Virginia Logo Virginia ...but they're 57th (!) in XSRS, which tanks their ranking in the combined rankings I use for my ballot.
6 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada Other discrepancies between Reddit and XSRS: Kansas 1/11, Virginia 4/16, Tennessee 6/17, VT 10/3, Texas Tech 19/7, UK 13/34, Nebraska RV/6.
7 Auburn University Logo Auburn Admittedly, the human rankings are a week old, but it's not made to resemble a human poll. That's why I'm not basing my full ranking on it.
8 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State
9 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech
10 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee Closest ranking differences between two teams were Michigan/UVA and ASU/MS ST.
11 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina They were both 0.07 points from each other on a 100 point scale.
12 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech (For context, UVA was 3.22 points ahead of Nevada, the next team down.)
13 Ohio State University Logo Ohio State
14 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky
15 Purdue University Logo Purdue
16 University of Wisconsin-Madison Logo Wisconsin
17 Kansas State University Logo Kansas State
18 Florida State University Logo Florida State
19 University of Iowa Logo Iowa
20 University of Nebraska-Lincoln Logo Nebraska
21 University at Buffalo Logo Buffalo
22 Iowa State University Logo Iowa State
