Yesssss sir! Love seeing this! New Mexico jumped up to #18 in the AP as well. That will be a big matchup.

My only concern would be #13 Illinios leaping us, they looked damn good in the 2nd half knocking off the Zags.

Good point, I guess it could happen but I can't see them flip flopping with us having to dominating wins even if they were against turrible teams.

The real movement for the 'Cats will occur over the next two weeks. Their second tough stretch of games coming up starting with a tricky one against Marshall this coming weekend. Plenty of opportunities to move as high up as they want if they keep winning. If they find a way to get into conference play undefeated they will have one of the best OOC resumes of any Bearcat team in recent memory. Victories over: Iowa St; Oregon; Alabama; Marshall; Xavier; New Mexico St. I'd say 4 out of those 6 make the tournament.

I'm just looking forward to the shootout (I refuse to call it anything else). I have a feeling SK and Cash will have the boys ready and they will play smart, focused basketball and take care of business.

Speaking of the Marshall game...Charleston isn't that far away and no reason why we couldn't have a decent fan following. Hopefully we see some good support!

We remain #11 in the AP. Ilinios leaped us. I'd love to be Top 10, but I can't hate, that was a huge win against Zaga and they looked great.

EDIT: And #12 in the Coaches still.

I'm actually okay with this because the Illini really got a huge win AT Gonzaga, and earned that ranking. We are still relatively untested. But compared to 'Zona who hasn't been tested yet (don't tell me Clemson was a test because I watched some of that game and Clemson looked really bad) and they are still higher than us. Arizona is still all speculation and we are seeing that Lyons (DOUCHE) is only a scorer and a terrible point guard. I would expect Florida to wipe the floor with them this week.

But back to my original point, until the next couple of weeks when we are really challenged, I'm perfectly fine with #11

Good analysis, I agree. Assuming we get past Marshall this weekend (though we all know what assuming does), we should be top 10 next week. What I've had my eye on is New Mexico. They are 10-0 and climbing up the charts. We each have 3 games left that we should win before that game on the 27th. If that happens, we could be watching a top 10 showdown Thursday night on ESPN after watching the football team (unfortunately I can't attend either in person with work).
