University of Kentucky LogoRobHD4's Ballot for Week 2 of 2021-22

Submitted on Monday, November 15, 2021 at 12:43AM EST
1 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga Played great against a good Texas team, I've always been a Zaga skeptic, but they should be here to stay barring a bad performance.
2 University of Kansas Logo Kansas Beat a good Michigan State team, thought about placing them at 1, but Zaga played great vs Texas. Plus Tarleton played better thantheyshould
3 Villanova University Logo Villanova Tough decision to put Nova over UCLA, but if that game was played on a neutral site, I think Nova would win by a few possessions.
4 University of California, Los Angeles Logo UCLA Great OT vs a good Nova team, but if UCLA would've won that game by multiple possessions in regulation, they would be 3rd
5 University of Michigan Logo Michigan Still good, but they let Buffalo make it a close game towards the end, but Buffalo is good so I won't knock them that bad for it
6 Purdue University Logo Purdue 2 handled wins against mid 100 kp teams, but I need to see more.
7 Duke University Logo Duke Thought I was going to put Duke at 6, but they struggled against a Mid-100 KP Campbell, so I'll keep them here.
8 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Logo Illinois Illinois performed better against better competition than Baylor did to theirs.
9 Baylor University Logo Baylor Shame they only had one game for week 1, but they performed as they should against one of the worst teams in D1
10 University of Texas at Austin Logo Texas Didn't perform well at all against Gonzaga, but it was the #1 team in the nation on the road so I won't drop them down that far.
11 University of Alabama Logo Alabama Thought about putting bama ahead of Texas, but I think they should've played better against South Dakota St at home.
12 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky Didn't want to drop UK down too far for keeping it close to a good Duke team at MSG, and then dominated Bobby Mo
13 University of Memphis Logo Memphis Thought about placing UM above UK, but they haven't played a top 100 team yet, will have to reevaluate after some good comp next week.
14 University of Oregon Logo Oregon Handled a good SMU team. Will be paying attention to Oregon-BYU on Tue
15 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee Had to look at 15-19 longer than I should, all teams that have handled their competition, looking to see more.
16 University of Arkansas Logo Arkansas
17 Auburn University Logo Auburn Wendell Green is the GOAT, Go Colonels.
18 University of Maryland, College Park Logo Maryland
19 University of Connecticut Logo UConn Played great, but against some of the worst teams in D1
20 University of Houston Logo Houston No excuse for letting Hofstra take them to OT, but they handled Rice. Maybe the Hofstra game was fluke
21 University of Florida Logo Florida Beat a good FSU team, earns them a crack into the top 25
22 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech
23 University of Iowa Logo Iowa Handled their bad opponents like they should (Looking at you Bonnies)
24 University of Southern California Logo USC Had a decent Away win at Temple
25 Ohio State University Logo Ohio State Still think they're Top 25 material, but it's unacceptable to almost lose to Akron and let Niagara make it a game
