So...more power to you.
Back on topic however:
I think we might squeak in the top 25 but I think the chances are low. I think we'd make it for sure had we won both our games this week.
As for McD? Meh. He certainly wasn't the coach for ISU and I will not root for him because of how far down the crapper our program went under his watch. However, I think that is because his style of play isn't suited for the B12, not because he's a bad coach. However, I've only heard good things about him as a person, so I have a hard time really wishing anything bad on the guy. All of that to say: I'm neutral on where Creighton goes. If anyone asks me if I care, I don't. If you want me to root for him? Not gonna happen and you're gonna know it.
Chances pretty slim we get ranked. Would of helped had Michigan lost today but the pulled it out. Maybe next week after a couple big Ws.
We certainly could be ranked, but I doubt we are. Loss to Okie State hurts, Win against A&M (no matter how much of a blowout) doesn't add as much as losing does, and that hurts us. Looking at teams in the bottom 5 spots, and teams on the "bubble" of being ranked:
Virginia - Loss to UNC (not necessarily bad)
Miss St - Bad loss to Georgia at home
Indiana - Keeps winning
Louisville - Keeps winning
Harvard - Bad loss to Princeton
Notre Dame - Keeps winning
Southern Miss - Bad loss to UAB
Temple - No recent losses
I think Creighton, Harvard, and Miss St all drop out. Louisville, Indiana slightly move up. Virgina drops down, but not out. Notre Dame gets in, along with one other team who was on the bubble. Temple probably gets a nod before us. So that leaves one spot for one of:
ISU, Gonzaga, Wichita State.
Gonzaga has a big win over Saint Mary's, so they probably get the nod over us, even though we probably get the nod over Wichita State. I think we finish with the most number of votes outside of the top 25, just short of Virginia, ND, and Gonzaga.
Oh well, I'll take a good Big12/NCAA tourney seed over top 25 any day of the week
I don't think we will be ranked, but I do think these polls are sometimes viewed as more scientific than they actually are. I wouldn't put it past voters to reflect on the past two or three weeks as a whole dating back to the KU win when we started to get some momentum instead of just this past week. More voters may have been paying attention this week and might decide to vote us in even if we are less deserving than last week.
Again, that being said I don't think we will be ranked.
I do not care about rankings although Creighton in no way should be ranked. All I want is an ncaa tourney bid and go from there.
Here's something else to watch. LE's Southern Miss team has gotten votes recently to be ranked. Now, they lost to UAB last week, but won Saturday......so there is the possibility that 2 and maybe even 3 teams coached by present or former ISU coaches would be in the Top 25 at the same time before the season is over. When has that ever happened?
