New Additions.

Welcome Rutgers and High Point! Good to see some fresh blood up there.

Towson. Most polls (Ed. Note: Besides mine) had Towson in the lower teens last week, but their convincing win over Georgetown resulted in a big Tiger jump.  Following Towson & Hofstra is going to be a lot of fun this year. Thunderdome is back!

Marquette/Georgetown/Stony Brook.

I love the Golden Eagles. But I haven't seen them play, and I felt Stony Brook didn't deserve to be dropped for losing a close one to Brown. Having Georgetown above Marquette does go against Section 1 of the Eri Doctrine, but I still gave the edge to the Hoyas, as two tough away games is a difficult way to start the season.  However, Georgetown needs to start winning to stay on the Big Board.

If there were a 20.5 team, it would be Marquette. Their win in Richmond was no joke, but there's only so much stage and I put the Eagles off to the side this week.  They'll have their chance at busting in my top 20 when they take on (ranked) Ohio State this weekend.

Is Ohio State still on the Big Board?

Pod taping soon. Send us your favorite music videos and we'll add one or two of those songs to tonight's playlist.  This was one of mine.

You're a WINNER!!
