Notes

  • Back to back losses to Tennessee and UNC have Gonzaga falling a bit. They should work their way back up the polls once we get into conference play.
  • Villanova lost to Kansas on Saturday and fell out of the polls completely as a result. Marquette is the line Big East team to be ranked.
  • Michigan looks like the class of the Big Ten. They will likely be a perfect 13-0 when Penn State pays them a visit on January 3.
  • Furman will not stop winning.
