    A&M jumps to #4 and ISU stays at #23

    We beat a top 12 team and do not move even 1 spot up. On the bright side we have a top 4 team coming in to Hilton tomorrow!!

    Re: A&M jumps to #4 and ISU stays at #23

    I thought I was still looking at last weeks poll at first because it looked the same.

    KState only dropped 2 spots after losing by 10 to a team that isn't even in the top 20? Either KState should have dropped more than that, or ISU should be ranked higher.

    Seriously, we have defeated 3 ranked opponents, two in the big12 and we still haven't made the top 20. Wonder if that loss to Iowa is still hurting us.

    Oh well, we will be given more respect after we knock of the #4 team at home and the #2 team on the road

    Don't care what we are ranked. We will shock the world come tourney time.

    I thought we made a little bump up to #21.

    It might be that the margins of the losses to Stanford and Iowa still have some of the voters a little skeptical. The voters (especially AP) often don't get to do a lot of research, and rely on the scores.

    In any case, knocking off aTm would be huge. Nice to have a big one like that in Hilton. Could it be a sellout crowd???

    I gotta think that's its the Iowa loss that is hurting us the most. I would have thought that the fact that we seem to be playing so much better since that game would factor in a bit more.

    I think they must be talking about the ESPN/USAToday poll not the AP

    That's like stating the obvious with Fennelly as coach

    Yes I am talking about the coaches poll. The AP poll comes out on Mondays and the coaches on Tuesdays. A&M is #10 in AP and #4 in coaches.

    I think we are at a good spot. I would rather but low on the rank and win then be high up and lose.

    Is this the first time this season we've been higher in the AP poll than the coaches poll?

    We were last week as well (#22 vs #23). Last week was the first time, not counting the preseason poll when we were RV in both polls -- #28 AP and #29 ESPN.

    I really wish I didn't have to work tonight. Would love to be at the game tonight.

    I think the Standford and Iowa games are somewhat out of memory, as many know the BF was still trying to settle on lineup/matchups at that time.

    Everyone knows ISU plays well at home, a good road win would help us. The Sand Diego St win on a neutral court should help us.

    Creme is the most critical of the ESPN writers of ISU, so if he gave us a 5 seed, people are noticing performance. Tomorrow night's game is a big one. A&M is tough, but I do think we can beat them, and I think they are a bit overrated.

    Go get them ladies!!
