Syracuse University Logofalconlover79's Ballot for Week 10 of 2018-19

Submitted on Sunday, January 6, 2019 at 9:03PM EST
1 University of Michigan Logo Michigan (LW: 1) Another quality win for Michigan's resume, they're still easily #1 in my books.
2 University of Virginia Logo Virginia (LW: 3) Wow were they dominant versus Florida State. This team is looking awfully similar to last year's version.
3 Duke University Logo Duke (LW: 2) I'm interested to see how Duke's youngsters fair in road ACC games, two of those are coming up this week, including @FSU.
4 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee (LW: 5) As a Georgia fan, I can vouch first-hand for how talented this team is.
5 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State (LW: 7) Never underestimate how difficult it is to win ranked road games in conference play, that OSU win will look great in March.
6 University of Kansas Logo Kansas (LW: 4) Not overly worried about the Iowa State loss, but losing Doke for the year will be tough to bounce back from.
7 Auburn University Logo Auburn (LW: 10) No games this week, but their only two losses are top ten teams (according to me at least)
8 North Carolina State University Logo NC State (LW: 12) Kevin Keatts is a winner. I'm really liking how this team plays, and even though their SOS is lacking, I really like them.
9 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga (LW: 11) It's gonna be tough for Gonzaga to rise too much more in the next two months, even with an improved WCC.
10 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech (LW: 16) There's a bit of a drop-off at this point in the rankings, TTU gets the "best of the rest" spot for now.
11 University of Oklahoma Logo Oklahoma (LW: 8) I still like this team more than most, the Big 12 doesn't provide many off days though.
12 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada (LW: 6) I wanted to drop them more but I really can't find many teams to jump them. That loss was atrocious though.
13 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech (LW: 18) ND and BC won't be the toughest tests in the ACC, but Tech is off to a good start in conference play.
14 Ohio State University Logo Ohio State (LW: 14) They showed a lot of fight against MSU, but their offence went cold down the stretch. Still an impressive young squad.
15 Florida State University Logo Florida State (LW: 9) Yes, they played UVA; losing the way they did is never acceptable though.
16 Marquette University Logo Marquette (LW: 13) I'm a bit concerned about the lack of offensive depth for this team. Someone else needs to step up in conference play.
17 Mississippi State University Logo Mississippi State (LW: 19) Just like Auburn, the Bulldogs were off this week. During conference play that tends to be a good thing.
18 Iowa State University Logo Iowa State (LW: NR) Hilton Magic baby. The Cyclones are back after one year at the bottom of the Big 12.
19 Indiana University Bloomington Logo Indiana (LW: 15) Injuries have been tough for IU but they are one of the favourites in the Big Ten.
20 St. John's University Logo St. John's (LW: NR) Impressive bounce-back week for the Johnnies. The Georgetown win was especially noteworthy.
21 University of Houston Logo Houston (LW: 22) I keep trying to rank them higher, but I'm not sure they pass the eye test enough for it.
22 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina (LW: 21) The Pitt win is certainly impressive but outside of Gonzaga I haven't seen them look great against quality opponents.
23 University of Minnesota Logo Minnesota (LW: NR) The Gophers are having no troubles with their rivals in Wisconsin (in either sport now) and the resume looks good too.
24 Texas Christian University Logo TCU (LW: NR) One of the lowest SOSs in the country, which didn't get all that much better by only playing Baylor.
25 University of Maryland, College Park Logo Maryland (LW: NR) Despite Mark Turgeon's best efforts, this team looks really good right now. Next 5: Wisconsin, Buffalo, Iowa, Kentucky, Texas
