Top 25 Vote for January, 4th

Wanted to make sure I posted my AP vote this week, you know, for consistency sake.  And by the time I’ve gotten around to it this week already a loss for North Carolina and Georgia Tech.  The Heels defeat to College of Charleston is mind boggling.  Very talented, but even younger will have North Carolina sliding farther from their current spot at number ten, and preseason position of number 4.

Duke is right now the class of the ACC as the Blue Devils typically are this time of the year.  But recent runs of post season futility make you wonder what’s going on in the “best basketball conference in the land”.   The Big 12 owns five spots in the poll including the top two and the Big East owns numbers six through nine.

The hard part now for the ACC, the conference has very few opportunities to improve in the rankings or RPI.  Beating up each other won’t help, and for teams like Maryland without a marquee non-con win, what can the Terps do to even make the tournament much less get back in the rankings.

I don’t have an answer, I mean that.  What can they do?  And don’t bring up “get rid of Gary”.  If the Terps won’t pay to have 2-8 Ralph Friedgen not coach their team, Gary Williams will decide when Gary Williams has had enough.

Anyway, here’s my first vote of 2010, could be the best of the decade.  We’ll have to see…
