I have Kansas State last because they have been the most boring team so far this year with no solid wins.

I had a tough time ranking the teams between 3 and 8 because they all have very weird resumes so far.

The BIG Ten/ACC challenge will give us more clarity on the BIG Ten conference.

10           Oregon State

11           Stanford

12           Cal

ASU is the hottest team in college hoops right now. Tra Holder, learn the name.

Arizona lost 3 straight in Atlantis out of no-where to drop.

Stanford was projected to be one of the most improved teams in the nation, but they are struggling.

SEC

1              Florida

2              Kentucky

3              Texas A/M

4              Alabama

5              Arkansas

10           Missouri

11           Georgia

12           Mississippi State

13           Auburn

14           Vandy

Florida edges out Kentucky barely at the top because they have a better loss.

Tennessee opened eyes in Atlantis to rise in the SEC.

Mississippi State is undefeated, but ranked 12th until they beat a team that is relevant.
