    When we finish in the Top 10, Dickie V is going to be looking pretty smart.

    Glad I already have my tickets for the 2nd and 3rd rounds in St. Louis!

    ISU has 3 quality wins in 8 games and is unbeaten. That is a lot more then can be said for quite a few of the teams that are ranked ahead of ISU.

    There are 8 teams with at least 1 loss ranked ahead of ISU. That leaves 8 unbeaten teams ranked ahead of ISU. Of those 8 unbeaten teams how many of them have 3 quality wins so far this season?

    It might make people uncomfortable so early in the season but I think Vitale is on the money here with where he is ranking ISU. Will ISU finish the season that high? Who knows. With ISU's body of work so far do they have a resume good enough to deserve a ranking that high? I think so.

    What if it's not high enough?

    If all it took was one visit to Hilton, too bad it took him 35 years to get here.

    To be fair, by the time he finally visited, we are rolling and were able to make a pretty good impression. Other years, not so much. It's all good from here

    You know, ol' Vitale may not be so bad after all.

    Ahead of Duke. I'm impressed. I'd say most of the 13 range voters are closer to right but based on merit 6 isn't ludicrous.

    Proof that he is a horrible voter. While I enjoy being on the receiving end of his obsession, it just goes to show that he skews his voting for his flavor of the day/week/month/season.

    Proof? He seems to have voted on results against competition. That's how it should be instead of flavor of the past 2 decades. I disagree with your assessment.

    This post goes to show you can never make all people happy. He gets bagged on for years for not giving us respect. Then comes to Hilton and worships us. Now he's a tool for respecting us "too much". lol

    This is all true....but who cares. He's one of the loudest voices in college basketball and theres no such thing as bad publicity.

    I think more people actually listen to Bilas. We gotta work on Bilas.
