American University LogoKalonKral's Ballot for Week 5 of 2018-19

Submitted on Monday, December 3, 2018 at 7:27AM EST
1 University of Kansas Logo Kansas 0 They survived against Stanford, and probably should’ve lost, but I continue to say good things about LaGerald Vick. What's happened to me?
2 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga 0 Another team on survivor status after barely beating Creighton. Clarke is looking great and this team stepped on the gas to a W.
3 Duke University Logo Duke 0 They crumpled a few hats with that big win over Stetson.
4 University of Michigan Logo Michigan +5 They’ve blown out every top 25 team they’ve faced and might be the best team in America today.
5 University of Virginia Logo Virginia -1 Jack Salt leading UVA to victory? Who saw that coming? Liked Clark, their freshman PG as well. Confidence remains high.
6 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada -1 Dominant offensively without seeing the full extent of what Trey Porter and Jordan Brown can do inside.
7 Auburn University Logo Auburn -1
8 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee -1
9 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech +10 I’ve got a top 8, no idea right here. I guess we’ll put Texas Tech here, with their 90+ Game Score in every game so far.
10 University of Wisconsin-Madison Logo Wisconsin +7 Impressive wins over NC State and Iowa left the Badgers above the dreck that all had a bad week.
11 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State -1 I know they struggled against Rutgers (uh oh), but I think Louisville is a QUALITY LOSS.
12 Florida State University Logo Florida State 0 A nice win over Purdue keeps them afloat.
13 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky +3 Francis Alonso had the best half I’ve seen this year … until UK shut him down in the second half (and actually played some defense).
14 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech -1 As far as quality losses go, not sure Penn State is going to look like one down the road.
15 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina -7 Michigan has made everyone look foolish this year, but not a good couple weeks from the Heels.
16 Kansas State University Logo Kansas State -5 If I could launch their offense into the Sun, I would. This isn’t the team I thought I’d see to start the year.
17 Arizona State University Logo Arizona State +1 They could either way in my poll ahead of their huge matchup with Nevada.
18 Villanova University Logo Villanova -3 Speaking of teams that we’re sending into the Sun, that would’ve been Villanova if they lost to lowly La Salle.
19 Marquette University Logo Marquette NR A very impressive win over Kansas St. and they’ve got a top 50 defense so far. Quite the turnaround.
20 Creighton University Logo Creighton NR Loved their fight against Gonzaga and Ty-Shon Alexander has taken a huge leap.
21 University of Iowa Logo Iowa +3 This is about where I though this team was before they played Wisconsin.
22 University at Buffalo Logo Buffalo +3 More than just a fun inclusion at No. 25, Buffalo was great in Northern Ireland.
23 University of Louisville Logo Louisville NR Big wins over Michigan St. and Seton Hall make their resume look really good so far. All hail Chris Mack.
24 Purdue University Logo Purdue -3 They’re 0-3 against good competition, so I’m not sure they even belong in the top 25, but I’ll give them another shot.
25 St. John's University Logo St. John's NR When you have Shamorie Ponds, anything is possible. Georgia Tech didn’t make it easy.
