If I was a voter, I couldn't justify dropping LSU out of the top 10 based on 1 loss on a neutral court to a ranked team. I also couldn't justify ranking the undefeated team that beat them below LSU. The ranking is appropriate. And is it "too high" when we're coming off a Sweet 16 and that rank means that they're seen as an Elite 8 that's not quite projected as a Final 4?I'm holding off on getting excited about ranks, bracketology, etc., until after CU beats Utah to begin conference play
I do think that #5 is a bit high, but they will have one more chance to prove it in the non-conference portion of the season when they play NC State. Once Pac 12 play begins they'll have almost unlimited opportunities to validate themselves.
Everyone but ASU and Cal- both of whom are undefeated (albeit against weak scheduling so far).This early bracketology has 10 teams from the Pac-12 Dancing. This conference is going out with a bang. No team will go undefeated in the conference.
The good news for the rest of the country is that Pac-12 teams must eventually begin playing each other. So starting Jan. 5, half the league will lose each night, and the likelihood that where we are today -- with the Pac-12 having three No. 1 seeds and five teams on the top three seed lines -- won't remain. But the Pac-12 is clearly the country's best conference for now, with just four combined losses among the 12 teams. Stanford elevates to a No. 1 seed after Sunday's exciting win over Duke, and things get eve
more entertaining when fellow No. 1 seeds UCLA and Colorado tangle with UConn and NC State, respectively, this weekend.
Yes, it will and I don't see anyone getting through it undefeated.yeah, with LSU as 20 that's gonna be a weird look for our NET. But conference play will be a bloodbath.
