    We're sneaking up...on others receiving votes. Down 2 spots in the AP poll to #21. Had to make way for Arizona and St. Mary's.

    Guess our honeymoon with Andy Katz is over. In his top 36, we had the biggest drop this week all the way down to 33 from 20.

    WTF? That makes no sense. Were we supposed to beat both teams by 40 and score 100 points? What the hell did Arizona and St. Mary's do?

    St. Mary's beat Wisconsin. Arizona throttled Illinois.

    And next week they'll be behind us (assuming we win). But yesterday afternoon they probably deserved to jump us.

    Fully agree with you on both points.

    The AP writers proved that no one watches early season college basketball (even those who are paid to watch it) by moving Xavier up three spots to #18 in the latest poll.

    Yeah, I really think they just fill it out, or have an assistant fill it out and submit. We definitely haven't looked like we deserve to move up in the rankings, but also don't think we deserve to fall as far as 33rd like Katz did for us. I don't know why people are shocked it hasn't been completely smooth, other than the core 4, everybody else that contributes is new, it's gonna take time to gel.

    It's early but Xavier's RPI is 4 and their SOS is 23 so... being ranked 18th may not be so suspect compared to the rest of the field.
