I think we fall to 8ish
Unless we really tank there is no way we don't stay in the top 12 for the rest of the year. You have to be blind to not see there is clear separation right around that mark.
Michigan State University is the university of Michigan
More funny than msu at here?
This country was built by people who worked hard then went home and had just a few too many every night. Then went back to work.
I think MSU is great too, but it's retarded and unrealistic to move a team up after a 0-2 week in which they shit the bed twice.
He had us at 3 last week too.
And it's retarded to not move an 0-2 team down.
I don't think we are fundamentally different than the team that clobbered U-M, but any more losses and we will take a hit.
I love Seth, but he's high and drunk. A loss to Indiana by 4 and a win at OSU, I think we can make a case for staying a #4. Losing to both? Nope. Granted they are "good" losses, as much as any loss can be, but losses still.
I don't think there is any reason to move us out of the top 10 for sure. I think you can definitely make a case for us at 6-7 still. Any higher than that, and you're
No, we got exposed defensively against OSU and quite frankly we stunk in the last 2 minutes against Indiana! With everything that was on the line they were not good losses. I see us @ 13 again. And who cares anyway we have Michigan next!

And what 12 teams deserved to be ranked higher and why?
9. Michigan St
Latest AP and USA Today college basketball polls on ESPN.com.
I predicted 8 so not too bad I guess.

Gonzaga being ranked #2 is a joke. They are 27-2. 26-0 against unranked teams. They don't play anybody to warrant such a high ranking. Not that it really matters ...
This..I forgot what year it was..but wasn't Gonzaga like #6 in the country and they ended up getting the #6 seed in the tournament. So I wonder what their RPI is right now.
At this point the priority is staying in the hunt for a top 3 seed so we can spend the first weekend of the tournament in Michigan.
Their RPI is 10th on RealtimeRPI, right behind MSU at 9
Zags have had a few good wins, all against Big 12 teams: OU, OSU and KSU
#10 in coaches poll
Per ESPN's RPI..
MSU's RPI #9.. as long as MSU finishes 2-1 or better and wins 1 in the b1G Tournament, looking at a 2 seed..
And not that it matters, but MSU's BPI is 5- up 2 spots from last week

That is bonerific.
Yep, it is exactly like last season...Can still play into the #1 seed or a #3 seed. I guess if they lost every game they have left and their first game in the B1G tourny they could slip to 4.
Irritated because we should be ranked higher than Michigan and Kansas. Conversely I don't think we really deserve to be ranked as high as we are after shitting our pants down the stretch in 2 straight games... but not sure who else merits being rated that high.
I guess Michigan did beat PSU and Illinois though... so that's super fucking impressive.
Marriage is like flying with kids, if the flight had 500 connections, never ended, Ted Striker were your pilot and you ate the fish.
Yep gotta finish 2-1 and lock up the 2 seed. And honestly a 2 seed might be better, less attention/press than the 1 seeds and Izzo can put together one of his usual under the radar type runs
And outside IU (who MSU played 2 close games with), none of the other potential 1s really scare me.. Gonzaga? Miami? Duke? Florida?
2 seed in DC or Texas is just fine with me
A 2 seed would be fantastic - especially if that analysis of how to get one is accurate. 2-1 and 1 win in Chicago seems to be the most likely scenario.
I don't know..it is all about match ups in the tournament. 2 seeds tend to get upset quicker than 1 seeds. Second round match ups are tough. We could be up against an UNC or a Kentucky that barely squeaked into the tournament as a 7/10 seed. I am not worried but it is a tougher road. If we do play a #1 seed in the Elite Eight the only potential #1 seeds that scare me are Miami and Florida. Florida is extremely athletic, has played a very tough schedule, and is very talented. Definitely a team that can go to the final four. Miami still scares me in a rematch. They are just a match up nightmare for us.
