Unfortunately, UNC is #26 right now after the loss to Virginia. Why put Maryland (who lost to UVa by a far greater margin) ahead of the Heels, then? Because I am slightly more scared of Maryland at their best. That, and they stand a far greater chance of winning their division.

As for the rest of the poll, it looks pretty ordinary, although I’ve made a point to keep teams ahead of oppnents they’ve beaten no matter what. That why you see Pitt-USF-Kansas at 16-17-18. Now that I think about, I may want to put the Jayhawks a bit lower, though they were impressive in defeat.
