I’m not going to pay attention to the polls this year…eff that…I’m checking the polls weekly. It’s good to be back! Love our team’s energy. Who knows where this season will take us, but damn it’s going to be fun to watch.

Every week in 2021-22, I will hand out awards for the week that just unfolded in college basketball and unveil a new top 25:

PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Trayce Jackson-Davis, Indiana. He hit 18-of-24 field goals with 43 points in a 90-79 win over Marshall, the first Hoosier since 1994 to score 40+ in a game.

TEAM OF THE WEEK: Iowa State. The Cyclones won two games last season, beating ranked foes Xavier and Memphis to win the NIT tip-off event.

COACH OF THE WEEK: Cliff Ellis, Coastal Carolina. He earned his 800th career victory.

DIAPER DANDY OF THE WEEK: Paolo Banchero, Duke. He scored 21 points in a win over Gonzaga.

SHOCK OF THE WEEK: Dayton over Kansas. The Flyers were a 16-point underdog and trailed by 15 in the first half before winning 74-73.

Looks like Memphis was massively penalized, and in some cases completely dropped out of the top 25, for losing to Iowa State.

They must be basing that off of how good Iowa State was last year, and that is completely irrelevant now that you can pick up transfers and they don’t have to sit out.

We should be top 15 for sure. Have two top 25 wins which is two more than Iowa football can claim. They played the weakest power five conference schedule ever, not a single game against a top 25 team.

Big time B1G bias. Why is Wisconsin ranked ahead of us? Why is Illinois still ranked? Passing eye test?
