    Win the next two, and we should be in.

    Not sure who wouldn't assume we'd get more votes. Any team that wins two games even against ho hum teams rarely loses votes.

    That's a lot of ground to cover. Not sure we'd be ranked if we won both unless we beat KSU pretty handily. A lot of the teams ahead of us would have to slip up.

    I think we'll be in, but barely, if we win the next two. K-State is #11/13. A win over them would attract some attention. 15-4 (5-1) should be good for somewhere in the #22-25 range.

    Win the next 2 and we'll certainly be knocking on the door.

    With K-State sitting around 11 and 13 in different polls, beating them Saturday gets us very close.

    Now, if K-State beats Kansas Tuesday, then we beat K-State, I think we would take a huge jump with the voters.

    Just noticed that we are getting more votes that North Carolina. That feels good. Too bad we are only doing it when they are down.

    I can see it now. We beat K-State and jump up to probably a top 20 ranking, then we get blown out by OkState and get dropped.

    Kinda seems like this happened before...can't quite put my finger on it.

    Same in the AP poll, but NC didn't get any USA Today votes from coaches.

    Hey, we are not at our best yet either.

    Removing myself from the week-to-week viewpoint, I am completely pumped with where Fred is taking things. ISU basketball can, and should be, a top Big 12 program.

    Teams that I don't think should be ranked:

    VCU
    Mississippi
    Miami
    San Diego State

    I like this time of year because they really seem to vote their minds, not looking over their shoulders at how others are voting or caring much about how they are supposed to vote.

    How in the heck do you think VCU should not be ranked?! You must not have seen them play. They are 16-3 with losses to a very good Wichita State team by two, Duke by nine, and Missouri by three. I've seen them a few times. They absolutely deserve their ranking.

    Awesome to see that Wiscy didn't get in.
