  1. I don't know about you Sue but I sure do LOVE seeing a school such as Wisconsin Green Bay up so high in the polls! It's nice to see some very small/mid major schools up there with the likes of Tennessee, Rutgers, Ohio State, etc. Very refreshing.

  2. I also think it's great seeing Delaware, Wisconsin GB and even the Zags making some noise.

    What I found sadly absent is the lack of Pac12 schools, except Stanford. I thought at least UCLA and SC would make some noise nationally this year. Both teams have a lot of talent but have taken some knocks this season. UCLA has as many injured players as they do suited up. And 2 are starters. SC has also taken some hits with injury. It seemed like the Pac12 (10) made far more noise last year.

  3. Fully agreed: expected more from the Pac-12, and it makes me sad.

    And of course now all the arrogant folks out there who like to say the West Coast isn't anything will jump on this one.
