Basketball BlogPoll -- Week 6

Here is the Week 5 Basketball BlogPoll, once again quite late.

The top fifteen teams are once again a paragon of stability, with no really big moves at all.  Below that, chaos.

Vanderbilt is still on the rise, and I voted Ole Miss into the poll, but didn't have enough agreement.  Ole Miss is playing great basketball right now, and Andy Kennedy seems to have turned the Rebs into a Western Division contender this year.  Our rivals in red here in my home town have fallen into disfavor, at least temporarily.

I still think Memphis is the best team in the land, but not enough people agree with me on that score, either.  Given the games this past week, you can expect this poll to change quite a bit when we get it done circa Wednesday or Thursday (gotta factor in the holidays).  I promise to get better about delivering this thing, but there is so much going on in the BBN, it is hard sometimes.

The public spreadsheet is here so you can see how everyone voted.  Comments and observations, as usual, are welcome.
