  1. Cal should be in the top 25, not the Zags. Nothing against the Zags but they played sloppy ball at CSF(3-3) and then lost to unranked USC(4-3) at home, and then struggled with Eastern Washington(4-5) at home before finally beating Montana(4-6) by double figures.

    I have seen both teams this season and Cal is playing much better.

  2. I couldn't agree more. I have seen Gonzaga in person, and they weren't that sharp. Cal is firing on all cylinders, they are cohesive, and they are winning. They deserve the ranking.
