Nice!

Now win the last two, use the bye to rest, win round two…keep going…


#3

Ranked twice in a row for the first time since? 1984?

Man, I will be so relieved when UH finally gets through all these ‘since the 80’s’ stats.

Reminds me of when the Coogs hadn’t won a bowl game in forever.

The nice thing is, we got some major respect/adjustments from “experts” right before the loss and they didn’t move us back after the Memphis loss. So we are still top 25, still getting seeded 7 by the experts and we got a wake up call that should have us focused deep into the conference tourney.

I said before that the Temple win was important because it gave us a quality road win and allowed us to have one mistake to still finish top 3 in the conference. We are in, short of losing 3 in a row, but it would be nice if we finish the last two games strong and get to a tough semi final match-up against Cincy or Wichita State to secure a 7 seed or better.

oh wow…thought we would be unranked still. good stuff.

Just snuck in above TCU who had 41 votes (we had 45).

Had a feeling we might stay ranked after we didn’t really drop in the projections after the Memphis loss. Plus, the win yesterday got people’s attentions.


#7

left out of the Coaches Poll. Creighton and UK sneak in…


#8

UK is apparently using all 9 of their lives this year. Whatever seed they end up with in the tourney, I’m pretty sure I’m picking them to lose.

16. Houston (18): The Cougars were stunned by Memphis, but then throttled East Carolina. Houston has the goods to be a real tough out in the NCAA tournament. Yes, that’s where Houston will land, back in the NCAAs. It has been quite a turnaround under Kelvin Sampson for the program and his career. Well done.

Wow…#17 Rhode Island got the snot beaten out of them tonight 78-48 by St. Joes at home. Should make some feel better about that Memphis loss. :wink:

Rhode Island coog’d it.

I am starting to get excited about the idea of winning a first round game.
