My AP Top 25 Poll This Week
I strongly considered dropping Kentucky off the ballot completely after it lost to both Notre Dame and Baylor (at home) this past week. But dropping a team from No. 8 to completely off the list is pretty harsh. Plus, with whom do I replace them? Georgetown, after its beyond ugly, 37-36 win over Tennessee? Minnesota? Illinois? Wichita State? Meh, could've done any of those three, but not this week. Not yet.
As for UConn, it stays at No. 25. Can't penalize a team for winning its lone game of the week -- even if it wasn't a very attractive one over New Hampshire on Thursday.
