    I see that Tommy's boys didn't get a single first place vote. That could very well change if they knock off the mighty Bruins in 8 days.
    The NBA playoffs, a best of 7 is always better than a best of 1.

      How does voting work? Auburn has 11 more first place votes than we do, but we are still number 1. I don't understand that.

        See post #30 above and:

        Each voter provides their own ranking of the top 25 teams, and the individual rankings are then combined to produce the national ranking by giving a team 25 points for a first place vote, 24 for a second place vote, and so on down to 1 point for a twenty-fifth place vote.

          Must mean a lot of people who don't have them at #1 have them much lower.

            Jesse Newell goes strictly off the computer numbers. He has Auburn 9th. That is the main reason they are not number one.
            I don’t agree with his method but he is consistent. If I were an Auburn fan I’d be incensed.

            Fifteen of his 25 picks are labeled extreme. (At least 5 spots from where the team is actually at)

              Really just 2. One at 6th and one at 9th. Gonzaga almost exclusively top 2, a handful of 3, one 4th.

                    GU 1486 points (25)
                    AU 1482 points (36)

                    Wow that's as close as I can remember the top 2 teams being in points. Essentially a tie.

                    Style points count this week vs USF if we want to keep the top spot after a potential AU win vs. Kentucky.

                      #1 Zags Forever (kind of)

                      Not a reach here, not a bold prediction, but here goes: Zags will remained the #1 team in both polls the rest of the season. Don't see anyone on the Zags's schedule that can hang with them. Plus, the Zags as teammates are going to feel more and more comfortable playing together. Plus-Plus, we are going to pound SMC or BYU or USF in the WCC Tourney Semi and Championship games.

                      The one way Auburn nudges the Zags off the top spot is if they whip up on their conference mates. Personally, I think they drop 2-3 games; plus, don't think they win their conference tourney. Saturday's game v. Kentucky will speak volumes about Auburn's legitimacy as a Top-5 squad.

                        Someone has Auburn at 22? Arizona unranked?

                            You really can’t compare common opponents from different time periods. Oregon is a different team now than they were early in the year. The same is true for Alabama. Santa Clara stated strong but then lost a key player or two and was terrible for a period.

                            That sort of comparative analysis is just flawed.

                              I love that people are trying to use Alabama as a baseline too. Alabama might have the most variance of any ranked team in the country over the past few years, like in 2020 where they put up 3 game scores of 97 but also multiple game scores in the low 30s. Or last year when they put up 3 game scores of 100 as well as a 29 and a 45. This year they beat us with a game score of 99 and lost to Missouri with a game score of 23!

                                Mmmmm, cake. We should do it again, and maybe send a piece to Jesse Newell this week. Ha.
