A loss, yes.
BUT, it's a loss to #2 Michigan State- @ East Lansing.
So, not an ordinary loss. A good loss, if there is such a thing.
At any rate, aloss that's not going to hurt them come NCAA seeding time.
Won't hurt, that is, unless the Zags are vying for a top 3 seed.
Then it could hurt a little. But, not for anything else.

Memphis played #1 Kansas to the last possesion and missed an open look @ the buzzer to win.
On a neutral court.
So, yeah, gary blew it - this week.

What were you thinking , Gary?

Your Top 25 and 1 vote should be taken away from you.

Except, of course, it's yours. And yours alone.

So, do better next week and you won't have to suffer through my version of The Poll Attacks.

Gonzaga moves in and Memphis doesn't? Gonzaga didn't move in. And I'm pretty sure Gary isn't going to rank them with a loss.

Gonzaga moves in and Memphis doesn't? Seriously, BYU is better than Memphis?

Notre Dame?  While I realize that teams like Dayton and California have lost twice, they have actually played opponents that at least have some credibility (California losing to Syracuse and Ohio State 6, and 16 respectively without two starters).  While most of us would love to give Notre Dame the benefit of the doubt because of Luke Harangody, I'm just not sure if they've really done anything yet that warrants them being in the top 25.

What does Siena's loss to Temple mean long term for them?
