We’ve installed it at the top of the page and will for the foreseeable future but here’s what the Top 25 boiled out to this past week. Votes were cast as of 1.12.09:
1. Texas (3)
8. West Virginia
11. Michigan St
12. Kansas St
17. Georgia Tech
22. Northern Iowa
23. North Carolina
Also Receiving Votes: Pitt, Gonzaga, Cal, Florida State, New Mexico
Interesting Tidbits from this week: Only one person had Northern Iowa, UNC, and Temple on his ballot, while all 3 of us ranked Clemson, yet the aforementioned three are ranked higher than Clemson. Also, two people ranked Florida State yet they find themselves on the outside of the poll.
Duke was ranked 6th, 7th and 8th by our three pollsters. Purdue was ranked 4th, 6th and 6th.
And I will say this: Tomas Verde and Souvenir City’s polls were remarkably similar.
