University of Michigan LogoBluOmega's Ballot for Week 14 of 2018-19

Submitted on Saturday, February 2, 2019 at 10:44PM EST
1 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee (+0) The Vols are really good at teasing upsets and then magically winning: see Vandy, South Carolina, and Texas A&M
2 Duke University Logo Duke (+0) Duke is really good but I think Tennessee is more consistent and can shoot better
3 University of Virginia Logo Virginia (+0) That NC State game was quite a scare, especially considering the VTech-Wolfpack game this Saturday, but the Cavs survived
4 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga (+0) When St. Mary's has an off year this conference schedule is pretty boring, at least San Francisco is someone this year
5 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky (+1) UK's really rolling now, 2 Tennessee games left on the schedule that should both be crazy, a split is very possible
6 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina (+3) Solid revenge win over Louisville but this team still has areas to improve
7 University of Michigan Logo Michigan (-2) Not a good look, Michigan's offensive weaknesses have really become pronounced in the past month which is unusual for a Beilein team
8 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada (-1) Still winning games by large margins but their SoS is just so bad.
9 Marquette University Logo Marquette (+1) It's crazy how Howard has the capability to just go off and take over a game, Marquette is dangerous
10 Villanova University Logo Villanova (+1) The Big East race between Nova and Marquette should be quite interesting
11 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State (-3) Losing Langford really hurts this team, Winston might start getting tired from putting in so much work and needs someone to step up
12 University of Houston Logo Houston (+2) Revenged their only loss, no one expected Houston to be this good this season
13 Purdue University Logo Purdue (+3) The BIG suddenly doesn't seem like such a 2-horse race, the Boilermakers are getting into a groove and matching their efficiency rating
14 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech (+3) I mean NC State shot terribly but still holding a team as offensively potent as the Wolfpack to 24 is a huge achievement
15 University of Kansas Logo Kansas (-2) This team is really hit or miss but a good Texas Tech win reasserts them as the favorite to repeat in the BIG 12
16 University of Wisconsin-Madison Logo Wisconsin (+4) If the Michigan teams and Purdue are at the top of the BIG, Wisconsin is higher than everybody else
17 University of Louisville Logo Louisville (-5) Losing to the Tar Heels isn't something to be super ashamed of, this team has really blossomed under Mack
18 Iowa State University Logo Iowa State (+4) Good couple wins this week, the Cyclones really have the ability to run with anyone and have a chance to win the BIG 12
19 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati (+6) Lots of losses around them and they just slid up, on a roll right now.
20 Kansas State University Logo Kansas State (NR) Good recovery from a really bad Texas A&M loss, still have a decent resume
21 University at Buffalo Logo Buffalo (-6) A couple bad losses doesn't change the fact that Buffalo can play with anyone and will be dangerous in March
22 University of Washington Logo Washington (NR) If any PAC 12 team has a hope at an at-large bid I think it's the Huskies
23 Wofford College Logo Wofford (NR) Only 4 losses to 4 tournament teams is very impressive for a Southern Conference team
24 Baylor University Logo Baylor (NR) No clue what happened to Baylor but they just bashed two teams I had ranked last week.
25 Louisiana State University Logo LSU (-7) Next Five: (Auburn, Iowa, Lipscomb, Maryland, Texas Tech)
