Oddly enough, we went up 5 spots in AP (27 to 22) but dropped one spot in ESPN/USA Today (22 to 23). I won't complain about it because:
1. FSU leapfrogged us in the coaches' poll after they had a very good week, and
2. ISU only dropped two spots last week after losing two games, and
2. It doesn't matter
We're probably in the right place. A win over KSU will move us up and likely keep us in the rankings for the rest of the season, and position us for a shot at a 4/5 seed, absent an upset along the way. I'm encouraged by Vandy and Minn. but, concerned about the slide of OSU. They gave us all we could handle in Ames.
