I also am disappointed with how the mid-majors seem to be getting more votes in the polls these days.
Butler, Gonzaga, VCU, Creighton, New Mexico, and Wichita State. I'm not saying these aren't bad teams, but really I'm not sure that these teams would go .750 in the Big XII this year. I would think Iowa State, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, would give some of these teams a win/loss in a home/away series.

All I am saying is I do think some of these teams are good, but all of them in the Top 25 seems a little too much love for the mid-majors.

I'm good with Michigan, but my bias is about Duke. This team just lost to NC State and the next game NC State lost to Maryland.

We can all say that if we had this player or that player we wouldn't have lost (KU was missing KY when we lost to Michigan), Duke had someone, Louisville when they lost to Indiana, etc.

Fact is Duke only drops 2 spots when they lost, but most teams drop 4-7 spots after a loss.

We are winning by the skin of our teeth, and may be fortunate to be ranked where we are. By the way, my teeth have very thin skin. We have not been impressive in recent wins, which gives us room to grow. We again will see what we're made of tomorrow night.

RCJH!

I love the fact that Missouri is no where to be seen!

Why is Michigan number 2 in AP and ESPN polls? Ku has won 15 games in a row. Michigan just lost to a team KU beat handily. East coast media sucks.
