Agree. Strange we dropped from #24 to #25 in one persons poll though. Especially after throttling UMass and winning by a large margin on ESPN2 @Henrico.
The thing about rankings that's easy to overlook... especially when it's indexed stuff like the NET, is that it isn't really a stable scale, it's relative, and you can get hopscotched, and there can be a lot of clumping of teams with very close ratings that get artificially spread out into what appears to be an even set of ladder rungs.

Yeah, Dave Preston's ballot bumped us down a spot from last week since he had Saint Mary's in at #24. The other AP voter who had us at #25 is David Jablonski, who you all might know from he Dayton Daily News.
