Any poll attacks this week?

I like the fact Syracuse is nowhere on this list. I was surprised to see the Orangemen still listed on the ESPN poll. I understand (because pundits have beaten it into my head) that an exhibition game means nothing, nada, zilch. However, a loss is a loss, in my opinion. And a loss to a D-II shool is... just sad really. On the flip side, no one thinks Syracuse will be getting beat by D-II schools in a month, but for this poll -- at this moment -- they have no business being on any top 25 or 26 list. I guess this is just a long way of saying, "Good call."

If UNC continues to look average, I wonder whether voters will start ranking them lower. My guess is no.

As much as I'm looking forward to the Butler game on Wednesday (duh!), the game I most want to see is the OSU vs. UNC matchup.

UNC couldn't put away a Valpo team with no frontcourt talent to speak of, a team that got hammered by a rebuilding group at Ball State less than a week prior.  Either Valpo just played out of their minds or UNC is going to get a rude awakening when they play a team as talented as Ohio State.

Gary,

What do you think is the most interesting matchup this week for a top 25 team. Personally I like the UNC/Ohio State game, but there are a few other good matchups. MSU/Gonzaga, Cal/Syracuse, Dayton/Georgia Tech, Kansas/Memphis, Butler/Northwestern. Also after Rider beat Miss State last week do you think they have a shot against Kentucky.
