In a hurry, I skipped right past posting last week's poll and managed to miss this week's deadline I think. That means you probably missed me handing a vote to Arkansas by accident instead of South Carolina, so I felt like I had to include the Gamecocks for one more week to make up for the transgression.
I didn't feel like knocking Oklahoma down since Blake Griffin did not play too much this weekend. And you will notice, I didn't give to much credit to Texas for winning that one either. The Pac-10 hurt themselves this week, while the rest of those teams in the teens and early 20s I feel are getting stronger.
I have high hopes for some traditional power matchups in this year's tournament since the mid-majors appear to be in a down cycle. However, that also means we are bound to see one or two huge upsets, since everyone is writing them off. Gonzaga certainly blasted it's last two opponents, remaining one of only two non-BCS schools (Xavier) that I've place in my Top 25 so far.
