    Re: Coaches Poll

    Last week we only had 8 votes, so it's progress. I'm more concerned with the AP Poll in any case.

    Yeah, it's definitely progress... Maybe after a run in the tournament, we'll actually see a number before the name on the screen.

    Re: Coaches Poll

    Making progress but it is ridiculous that a non ranked team can finish in conference above a top 10 team.

    Id be more concerned with what coaches think of us as compared to media members, but that is just me...

    Re: Coaches Poll

    I'm sorry, why is Florida in? Their two top 25 victories are over teams that are no longer in the top 25. One is A&M. They sure don't deserve a #19 ranking.

    If the coaches were the ones actually filling out the rankings (and/or cared about the rankings) I would agree with you. But most of the time it is graduate assistants or SIDs filling out the rankings. Or in some cases just turning in last weeks rankings, giving the form to a student manager, ect, ect.

    Having said that, neither the coaches' poll or the AP poll matter much.

    Only the AP poll matters.

    Yes, I found this one a headscratcher as well.

    EDIT: statsheet.com has Florida with a 27 RPI and ISU with a 29, identical records, almost identical SOS (ISU 38, F 39). One is ranked #19 and the other isn't ranked.

    I hate the polls.

    Re: Coaches Poll

    These ranking are funny. How can Baylors loss to us drop them one spot. It's like they are telling Baylor that they understand they got beat by a really good team and they won't punish them for it. However, they gave us no credit. Oh Well.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    It is probably because you can't have the #1 team in the county and no other ranked teams in the conference. Florida being ranked has more to do with Kentucky than it does about Florida.
