VMI? Gotta ask why?

OK John -- roll out the refresher lesson about how you vote your #25 team. Keydets everywhere thank you for your vote! Not many teams can outrun VMI for 40 minutes. -- from Roanoke, VA

By next week's poll, some early season shuffling will have gone on, it will be interesting to see how it compares week to week. Tonight's Duke-Kansas State matchup (and essentially home game for KSU) should be a great test for both programs. Kentucky, Washington and Mich State all in Maui.

Glad to see you dropped UNC, and UCONN is nowhere to be found. That said, I figured Minnie would be higher, with WVU maybe in there somewhere.

"Your" Hoosiers are 4-0. Throw us a bone at #25!

Speaking of Indiana, if they go on to have a pretty decent season, including NCAA birth, is their a better season for a coaching family in history? The Harbaugh/Crean tree is doing some amazing things. They are putting the Bowden's and Stoops's to shame.

There goes Feinstein, flaunting his notorious anti-Georgetown, pro-Maryland biases again, dissing the Hoyas and overpromoting the Terps by placing them -- oh wait . . .

Have to laugh. It's Wednesday AM and after last night's results it pretty clear your ballot will look a little different next week!

Kyrie Irving...enough said. Hopefully they can keep it together. If Duke gets by Oregon maybe they can climb to #1 in your poll. Please don't try to be like Bilas and pick against Duke any chance you can. Love your books.
