Quick Hot Takes

  • Dropped out. Navy, Penn State, UVA, and Bucknell didn't make the cut this week. It wasn't so much punishing those teams, as it was that other teams merited attention. If there is an Eri Doctrine it's that I try to reward winning. Nevertheless, this is more "see you soon" than "goodbye forever," as all the recently departed have opportunities to climb back on the guest list this week. However, for right now they had to make way and let others have their week in the sun. 

  • Hold on, don't go just yet. I thought Georgetown and Stony Brook earned the right to stay another week. I am not going to fault Georgetown too much for playing tough early games on the road. However, it doesn't get any easier for the Hoyas as they travel to Hofstra this weekend after playing Mount St. Mary's today.

    I didn't think losing to Brown by 2 points was a reason to drop Stony Brook out of the top 20. I know the Eri Doctrine says reward winning, but Section 2 says, its my list so let 'em hate blogger prerogative can overrule Section 1. I think the Seawolves are good and not having seen Marquette play yet helped to give the edge to Stony Brook this week.
Stuff I want to talk to Ryan about tonight.
  • Towson. Are the Tigers underrated?

  • Harvard's OT winners and is Yale the 3rd best team in D1?

  • RRRRUUUUTTTTGGGGEEEERRRRSSSSSS!!

  • The Patriot League. With 9 teams in the conference and an earlier start to their conference schedule will the Patriot League cannibalize itself out of multiple at-large bids?
