My College Basketball Top 25 – Home, Sick Edition

The MadDoc is recuperating from some surgery and I’m battling a cold.  Trying to get over it enough to handle the campaign events coming up this week.  Can’t be sniffling when you’re recording a TV spot, can you?  But, I’ve got a little time to kill this evening in between some campaign prep work, so let’s talk a little college basketball.

It’s been a crazy year and I think there are no certain Final Four contenders.  Or, to put it another way, if my top 4 from last week (and this week) were the #1 seeds this year, do they really scare your preferred team?  Probably not.  From the perspective of a Wildcats fan, I think we can beat anybody and also get upset by more teams than I would like.  There are 20 or 30 teams that could get on a roll and win 4 to get to the Final Four.

That said, here’s where I rank them now:

  1. Gonzaga (21-1)
  2. Baylor (17-1)
  3. San Diego State (21-0)
  4. Florida State (17-2)
  5. Oregon (17-4)
  6. Duke (16-3)
  7. Kansas (16-3)
  8. Kentucky (15-4)
  9. Louisville (17-3)
  10. West Virginia (16-3)
  11. Dayton (18-2)
  12. Auburn (17-2)
  13. Maryland (16-4)
  14. Michigan State (15-5)
  15. Villanova (16-3)
  16. LSU (15-4)
  17. Penn State (14-5)
  18. Colorado (16-4)
  19. Arkansas (15-4)
  20. Butler (16-4)
  21. Wichita State (17-3)
  22. Seton Hall (15-4)
  23. Iowa (14-5)
  24. Illinois (15-5)
  25. Rutgers (15-5)
