Week 4 BlogpollPosted by rtmsf on December 26th, 2008
Here we go with Week 4’s Blogpoll…
Some quick thoughts:
- Motility. UConn moved up one spot to #2 by virtue of their big OT win in Washington state last weekend. Duke (+5) and Georgetown (+5) were the beneficiaries of losses to Texas (-5) , Xavier (-7) and Gonzaga as well. Purdue (+7), Michigan St. (+6) and Clemson (+5) were also high risers. Louisville’s loss to Minnesota damn near dropped them out of the poll (-13). Two Big Ten teams, Michigan and Minnesota, were this week’s new additions.
- Variance. Wake Forest is this week’s winner with a range of #6 to #20, as there are still some questions about the validity of the Deacs’ 11-0 record. Xavier, Missouri, Baylor and Syracuse all have a pretty high degree of uncertainty from the pollsters.
- Conference Call. The Big East is still king, but the Big 10 is getting noticed. Big East (7), Big 10 (5), ACC (4), Big 12 (4), Pac-10 (2), A10 (1), SEC (1), WCC (1).
