Goz’s Weekly College Basketball Poll (1/4)
This season I’ll be providing my own personal Top 25 poll each week during the college basketball season. My poll philosophy is ranking the teams I believe are the best twenty five best in the country following that given week’s games. These rankings tip off this week and will run until January, when then we shift our projections to "mock brackets". The complete poll is listed below. (This Poll was conducted at 11pm Tuesday January 3rd)
7) West Virginia
11) North Carolina
15) Florida State
22) Virginia Tech
Six Top ten teams lose- It’s going to be tough to find a game better than the Oregon-UCLA last week. Both teams battled back and forth and the Ducks came out on top in the end. Although Oregon is ranked 18th, I would not be surprised to see the Ducks as a potential final four team this season. Duke’s loss to Virginia Tech was the most shocking of all the losses.
Is Creighton too far down after their loss to Villanova? -The Blue Jays lost to the top team in the country by ten points but fell six spots? I understand Creighton was within one possession with less than three minutes to go. But this game had Creighton as the home team. I’m interested to see if the Blue Jays can put him a similar effort on the road or on a neutral floor against the Wildcats.
Bracketology starts next week! That’s right next week we have more of a “Mock bracket” going forward. What teams will play in what regions? How will the seeding look if the tournament started tomorrow? We discuss all of that next week!
