    No love for the Buffs this week.

    You've got to think we're in the Top 25 if we sweep this Washington trip and come home at 16-4... right? I mean, how could CU not be ranked at that point? Am I taking crazy pills?

    Should be receiving a decent number of votes at 14-4, but those Sunday night games tend to get lost.

    We're 1-3 against top 50 KenPom teams. I'm not ready to say we should be ranked yet. Sweep this week and I'll come around.

    Might be splitting hairs but Utah grabbing 3 votes while Oregon getting one might be an indication of how much notice the PAC is receiving from the national media

    I wouldn't put us in the top 25 either, but I think a case for CU can be made compared to some of the vote getters. Also, since no one feels differently, I'm not sure we get in even if we sweep this week. That's an awfully big jump considering Wazzu is viewed as a lightweight and a win over Washington is solid but won't "wow" anyone.

    The ACC is experiencing parity and that translates into more ranked ACC teams. The Pac experiences party and it leads to a struggle to have 2 ranked teams...and the Pac was as impressive as they came OOC.

    Road wins help and an 80% winning percentage helps even more. I'm not saying it makes much of a difference to the opinion of anyone with a pulse, but we're talking Top 25 voters here.

    Did you see how fast the refs sprinted off the floor? Haven't seen that in a while....

    F*** Duke. They're in the same category as Bailer.

    Syracuse got the win at Duke.

    Besides Duke falling, that must have had a domino effect because CU jumped from 24 to 22 in RPI.

    This Iowa State-Oklahoma game has been terrific. And horribly officiated. Clones 60- Sooners 59 with 8:30 left.

    That would help us out if Iowa St. could hold on.

    This season is so wide open. Seems like 30+ teams might be capable of winning 6 in a row come March.

    ISU holds on to beat OU 82-77. 3 #1's have lost in the state of Iowa this year.

    Nobody wants to be ranked #1 right now, that's for sure.

    Could be a wild tourney. We're going to see some very high seeds drawing super-capable teams like Kentucky, Indiana and Cal on that first weekend.

    The key challenge being the "sweep" part. Someone could enlighten me regarding how many times we've swept a 2-game PAC-12 road trip, but I think it's rare.

    On the other hand, we seem to have the potential to have a chance with this team - if we sweep in Washington, sure I'd like to be ranked, but even if not we'll know that's where we're headed. I'm going to be a little cautious with the What-Ifs, there's a history of sometimes looking incredible at CEC then doing a complete turnaround on the road. But very much anticipating the WU game as a measure of how good we really are.

    If WSU and CU win out this week, come Monday, I'd venture to say both programs are Ranked 24/25 or 25 and enough votes for 26-28.

    Really want to see Butler lose at Providence (on FS1 right now).

    Will be real hard to justify any 5-loss teams in the Top 25 next week.

    Ok, I guess I'm now rooting for the Friars to win by exactly one point ;). Damn.

    Taking in UVA/Clemson tonight. Clemson is as hot as they come right now with 5 straight wins: FSU, Syracuse, Louisville, Duke, and Miami. As much as UVA has struggled over the last few, it has all been on the road. A loss would spell panic mode and indicate something more than a mid-season slump. Clemson is going to make for a strange bubble case.

    Jayhawks going down. 75-60 Pokes, 4:00 remaining. This March is going to be absolutely ridiculous. Could end up being a year where a low seed takes it
