Furman Getting More Votes Than Us in Coaches Poll

I keep thinking the Coaches Poll will be the pinnacle of polls...but I keep getting let down. Is this a surprise to anyone?

Furman is still getting 12 votes in the Coaches Poll and we are getting 6. I looked at it last week and thought it was odd that they were still getting 10 votes and chalked it up to coaches just mailing in their sheets without much thought but they actually got two more votes this week than last week...WTH?

I guess it has no weight in the overall scheme of things.

Nope. Just keep winning. We are 50 places higher in the NET and they have disappeared from the AP where we are climbing. KenPom has us at 31. We are in a nice spot. Fortunately, FU, UNCG and ETSU all keep winning, which is keeping our conference profile elevated. If we can keep winning especially on the road at ETSU and FU, our rankings will probably climb a little more. I don't see us getting in the Top 20 just because of conference rankings but if we can hang around 25, an At-large bid would not be out of the question should catastrophe strike in the Tourney. I have seen us listed as high as a 10 seed which is pretty high praise at this point.

This is just more proof that crack is still an epidemic in this country. Furman has a very good team and may very well beat us in Travelers Rest, but there is no way to favor their resume at this point over ours even considering that their Villanova wins is more impressive than our South Carolina win.

Yep, those coaches voting for Furman with their 4 conference losses are definitely on crack!

Eyes, I am still laughing. The Villanova win was big, but the Loyola Chicago one is looking pretty mundane. We just need to take care of our own business, and not let anyone else's get in our heads.
