My AP Top 25 This Week. UConn Was Considered
No one else did anything to deserve being bumped, except possibly UNLV, whom I had at No. 16 last week and lost to North Carolina at Chapel Hill Saturday.
There's no shame in that, though -- and no, I didn't add the 9-3 Tar Heels to my Top 25, despite that victory. It's a nice win, but the game was in Chapel Hill. The real good teams are separated from the good teams by road wins, not home wins.
As for UConn, whose 10-2 record is as good as anybody could have expected at this point in the season, I considered it. But again, there was simply no one else to boot out. The only losers from my Top 25 last week were Cincy, UNLV, Missouri (at UCLA, in OT) and San Diego State (at No. 3 Arizona).
