Basketball BlogPoll -- Week 15

New, 3 comments

Here is the Week 15 Basketball BlogPoll.

This is a poll I didn't have time to vote in, but you can see there are significant changes from last week.  UConn continues to rise up the charts, although now I believe they have reached the point at which they are actually overrated.  Louisville is also surging, but contrary to UConn, I think they are actually underrated in the BlogPoll at this point.  Purdue surged 8 places, the biggest upward movement of anyone due to them by beating Wisconsin and Michigan State last week.  I don't subscribe to moves that big, myself, and I think their subsequent loss at Indiana bears that out.  Michigan State got dropped due to losses to Purdue, Indiana and Penn State, and losing 3 out of their last 4.

Clemson moved back into the poll after a lengthy absence, but I expect that will be short-lived.  Texas A&M dropped out of the poll completely, and as of Saturday has dropped 3 in a row.  Due to the Tennessee-Memphis outcome, we will certainly see a change at the top later this week.

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