Not much change in my Top 25 ballot this week, though UConn (and a few others) move up a spot despite not playing a game. Why? Because Kentucky and Kansas, whom I had ranked No.'s 7 and 8 last week, respectively, both lost. Both dropped quite a bit in my poll, even though losses at North Carolina (Kentucky) and at Florida (Kansas), are hardly embarrassing. Fact is, both teams have three losses now, and I probably had them ranked too high last week, anyway.
Only team to get bounced from my ranking this week is VCU, which lost to Northern Iowa and clearly isn't as good as a lot of people (myself included) expected. Sliding in is Colorado. Interesting game next Saturday when the Buffs face Oklahoma State. I'm holding out for the Cowboys at No. 2 for now, but that could easily change next week.
