Submitted on Sunday, January 17, 2021 at 11:22PM EST
1 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga Tier S
2 Baylor University Logo Baylor #1TGF
3 University of Iowa Logo Iowa Tier A | Minnesota at home is basically 2015 Kentucky, so neither of their losses look all that bad and they're still dominating teams
4 Villanova University Logo Villanova Please play this week :fingers_crossed:
5 University of Texas at Austin Logo Texas Reeeeeally blew the Texas Tech game. That shoulda been a W, but I've been high on Texas Tech so I'll give them some credit too.
6 University of Michigan Logo Michigan Tier B | I CALLED IT!
7 University of Houston Logo Houston Quietly staying afloat
8 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee
9 University of Wisconsin-Madison Logo Wisconsin Something about Wisconsin getting slaughtered by a team that went on to get mauled at the Barn is incredibly satisfying. Can't imagine why.
10 University of Kansas Logo Kansas Tier C
11 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech Going 1-1 on the week when your week is the two top teams in the conference, with the win being a nice comeback, is an accomplishment.
12 University of Oregon Logo Oregon
13 University of Alabama Logo Alabama They're a basketball school now
14 University of Virginia Logo Virginia In KenPom, the Clemson game pushed Virginia from #17 to #7 and Clemson from #19 to #36. It was a massacre.
15 Ohio State University Logo Ohio State
16 University of Connecticut Logo UConn Admittedly, I docked this team a decent amount for losing their superstar player to elbow surgery
17 Creighton University Logo Creighton Their schedule doesn't have the potential for any jaw-dropping wins with Villanova KO'd and Bouknight on the bench.
18 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia Please play this week :fingers_crossed:
19 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Logo Illinois If they lose to Penn State on Tuesday, they're almost certainly gone.

22 University of Minnesota Logo Minnesota Liam Robbins dominating Hunter Dickinson for the entire game felt soooo goooooood
23 Florida State University Logo Florida State
24 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech There, now we can stop pretending that Duke is any good. Thanks Hokies!
