Basketball Blogpoll -- Week 3

And it's well past time for the Week 3 basketball blogpoll.

"Wait," you ask, "I don't remember a Week 2 blogpoll."  Well, your memory is good.  I didn't post the blogpoll for week 2.  Why?  I don't know -- maybe it was because we had 3 games last week, 2 basketball and one football and two on the same day.  Maybe it's because my fingers are tied in knots from typing on the computer so much.  Maybe, just maybe, my addled brain forgot.  And I almost forgot Week 3 as well.  I promise to get better.

Whatever the case, it didn't hit the blog.  But I am determined to change that and so ...

If you'd like to see how we all voted, just check the public spreadsheet here.

Lots of big swings in this poll, which is kind of predictable at this point in the season.  With so few games, losses are magnified to a much greater degree than when we get further along in the season.  Teams that are making moves are fairly obvious:  Texas, TAMU, Butler and Clemson are moving up big.  Louisville, Tennessee, Indiana and Clemson take big dives.
