Northwestern University LogoTPM_23's Ballot for Week 14 of 2018-19

Submitted on Monday, February 4, 2019 at 4:04AM EST
1 University of Virginia Logo Virginia (--) on one hand, they barely beat NC State; on the other hand, NC State is barely a basketball team
2 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee (--) if they had beaten better SEC teams this week they'd probably shift up into my #1 spot
3 Duke University Logo Duke (--) smart move, pretending St. John's is in the ACC
4 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky (+2) they have 3 fewer wins a one more loss than Zaga, but they beat Real Teams™
5 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga (--) pretty much interchangable with Kentucky for now, until one of them loses at least
6 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina (+2) way to get over the teams that haunted you
7 University of Michigan Logo Michigan (-3) losing is not always a bad thing; it's just detrimental in this poll, which is pretty much the only thing that counts
8 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada (+1) swimming up through molasses over here
9 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State (-2) it's a good thing the Big Ten is not solely comprised of teams from Indiana, Ball State can be quite the fearsome foe
10 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech (--) bit of a dick move, not telling NC State that game was for real
11 Marquette University Logo Marquette (--) can they stay on top of the Big East? they're definitely finishing 2nd, with a 5(!) game cushion over everyone else right now
12 University of Houston Logo Houston (--) not Houston Baptist, which makes me wonder if they baptize their students
13 Villanova University Logo Villanova (+1) *breathing intensifies for top 15 matchup*
14 Purdue University Logo Purdue (+5) do I dare say, they look good?
15 Florida State University Logo Florida State (+2)
16 University of Louisville Logo Louisville (--) home loss to UNC is firmly in "quality loss" territory
17 University of Washington Logo Washington (+4) I'm up to riot if they're not ranked in the AP this week
18 University of Kansas Logo Kansas (-5) not every game can be at home, trust me, I checked
19 Iowa State University Logo Iowa State (+3) plus: can actually beat Texas
20 University of Iowa Logo Iowa (+5) touché
21 Kansas State University Logo Kansas State (NR) just a big ol' Big 12 sandwich with Iowa in between
22 University of Wisconsin-Madison Logo Wisconsin (NR) 8-3 in-conf is nothing to scoff at anymore
23 Louisiana State University Logo LSU (-8) probably debuted them a little high
24 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati (NR) it's not an american ranking until we've ranked the American multiple times
25 Wofford College Logo Wofford (-1) these guys stay -- DROPPED: Buffalo 18, Mississippi St. 20, Texas Tech 23
