    I say #23. Top 20 by the time PAC-12 starts.

    Not yet. Beat Penn St and SMU then we get in. Not enough respect for our schedule and the East coast bias.

    Yep.

    Penn State is at RPI #98.
    SMU is at #19. (Or Kent State at #58 if it pulls the upset.)

    Win those on a neutral court and the Buffs would be 12-1 and a worthy member of the Top 25.

    Not enough losses from teams at the bottom of the rankings, for CU to move into the top 25. UCLA will drop for sure, but Utah might take their spot. Northern Iowa will get some love this week even with 3 losses, because of a neutral court win vs ISU and home win vs North Carolina.

    CU will probably get a few more votes and end up around 27th-28th in the Rankings. Really need to win vs SMU to get into the rankings.

    The only teams that have a possibility of falling from the top 25 are UCLA and maybe Baylor (although they lost to another top 25 team - aTm). The other four teams that lost were in the top 10 (Kentucky, Purdue, Duke, Iowa State) and I don't see any of them falling all the way out. Buffs will remain where they are but next week is big.

    I would like to stay out of the top 25 as long as possible without losing. I like the angry play.

    It's like the madden curse. You get there because of extraordinary play so it's natural to come back to earth. When you get ranked and aren't a legit top 15 team you are vying with other teams in the same position. Teams regress towards their mean. No teams stay ranked 23 all season. Either they move up and up or fall out.

    I'll take CU in the top 25 any freaking day.

    Great points all, except I would say excellent rather than extraordinary. You get to number #1 ranking late in the season with extraordinary play.

    I sure as hell want us to be ranked! Especially before we play, hopefully, smu.

    With the clustercuss of teams ranked 26 to 30, this is looking like one of those years where the Pac-12 will not have more than 2-3 ranked teams at a time, or even at the end of the season. I see Cal, Utah and UCLA really improving as the season goes on, but everyone is going to be beating each other so in order to garner a top 20 rating you'll have to string together some solid winning streaks (5-6 games at a time).

    Luckily for the Buffs, our first 14 conference games are very winnable. I see the team going 10-4 over that stretch, rolling in to Westwood with a 21-6 record...not too shabby!

    I hate that Baylor is ranked. They are 7-2 and their SOS is 290. They beat Vanderbilt (rpi 40), and their next best win is Stephen F Austin (rpi 194).

    We are 9-1 and have a SOS of 156.

    I hate Baylor.

    You might as well finish off the full-season prediction - hope you're right to the 21-6 but not sure I see that unless the indications thus far of Buff road improvement hold up.

    Either way, I'm glad to have wrapped up the (mostly) less interesting part of the season and to be starting the part where every remaining game is very meaningful and challenging. I think we're ready.
