  • Seth Davis rankings

    Seth Davis this AM
    Purdue
    Villanova
    Duke
    Alabama (up from #22)
    Gonzaga
    UCLA

    Obviously, for Seth, beating GU is a stairway to the stars.

  • #2
    Dickie V has the Zags at #4.

    I'm surprised we weren't knocked out of the Top 10 after our last 3 games.

      The first NCAA NET rankings were released this morning. NET numbers really don't mean much until mid-February. FWIW, GU comes in at #8.

      https://www.ncaa.com/rankings/basket...l-net-rankings

      The WCC:

      8 Gonzaga
      24 BYU
      32 San Francisco
      55 Saint Mary’s
      71 Santa Clara
      213 San Diego
      227 Portland
      228 LMU
      254 Pacific
      293 Pepperdine

      FWIW: There's a link to the NCAA Net Ranking home page in the GUB Resource Library found in the "General Basketball" Forum

        As you say, NET doesn’t really mean much until early Feb or so. However, at present, 6 WCC teams represent Quad 1 win/loss opportunities. That is based on a road win at an opponent ranked 75 NET or better counting as Quad 1. That’s much stronger than I can recall. Worth keeping an eye on.

            After Saturday's game I turned to my wife and said "Whelp, Zags are gonna have a double digit ranking on Monday." Maybe not.

              CBS on Sunday had them at #6.
              I guess it's not just the team, but who is behind them that is better.
              Not even a smile? What's your problem!

                      How is UCLA ranked higher than us? We smashed them less than 2 weeks ago. I guess the voters were impressed with that forfeit win over Washington.

                        Surprised the Zags are still 5, but they do have 2 top tier wins, and their two losses are to top teams as well.

                        Better resume than Villanova. Makes sense as long as you ignore the trend line.

                          Other than diehards, doubt that most saw all our games. Certainly not Tarleton, Duke was a very late East start and Alabama was crowded out by college football championship Saturday. So just reflexive voting. Nothing more or less.

                            I thought we would drop a few spots comparable to Villanova with two losses. With that said, our ranking doesnt mean a whole lot if we can’t beat a physical team.
