Anderson: After we take a look at final 10 matches earlier than postseason play, each Georgia Tech and Kentucky are rising on the proper time. Georgia Tech’s win over Louisville acquired my consideration and I moved them up within the ballot. All of Kentucky’s losses are “good losses” and I hold inching them ahead each week. First seven are pretty simple to establish whereas the 8 by means of 16 is ever always shifting in my votes.
Arneal: The massive debate for me is who’s No. 3. After Louisville slipped up towards Georgia Tech, it opened the door for Texas and Stanford to maneuver up. I just like the Cardinal’s high quality of wins as of late. Nearly all the Longhorns’ powerful convention matches have been at house. Stanford will get the nod for now. I’m trying ahead to how UT responds at Kansas State. Tennessee strikes as much as No. 8 after Pitt and Arkansas endure losses to unranked groups. I debated between Arizona State and Kansas for the final spot however went with the Solar Devils regardless of their sweep by USC. ASU has better-quality wins and will get in over the Jayhawks.
Haley: The highest 5 groups have proven all through the season that they’re resilient. It’s a very good guess we are going to see three of them within the remaining 4. As we all know upsets occur. Let the enjoyable start.
Benton: I swear each week of NCAA volleyball is getting increasingly unpredictable. I’m capturing myself within the foot for not together with Penn State after that loopy match towards Nebraska however I went with Florida State for that No. 16 spot after that unbelievable win towards Pitt. Louisville additionally drops just a little after dropping to Georgia Tech, and I additionally had a troublesome time rating Texas and Stanford. Stanford had a powerful win towards Washington State, however I can not recover from that loss final week to Arizona State. Talking of Arizona State, I pulled them out after their loss to USC. I may go on and on. However lastly, simply IMAGINE what this rating would appear to be if Penn State pulled off that win towards the Huskers.
Punzel: I really feel fairly strongly about my high 4: Nebraska, Wisconsin, Stanford and Texas. After that it will get fairly squishy. There are groups I need to drop down however not many I need to transfer up of their place. Struggled to fill out the final couple spots. Added Kansas at 15 as my solely first-timer.
Ehman: Georgia Tech moved up a couple of for me after its Louisville win. Kentucky continues to rise. Pitt and Arkansas dropped out of the highest 10 for unranked losses. Purdue additionally climbed again to No. 16 — even with their unranked losses, I feel their wins are higher than every other high 16 contending workforce.
Gillman: Friday felt like a basic NCAA Event opening weekend evening with all its insanity! I’m just a little anxious in regards to the ACC in December (Pittsburgh-Georgia Tech on Friday is big). In the meantime Nebraska and Purdue got here up huge this previous weekend because the Boilermakers labored their approach again in my Prime 16 behind a dominant Creighton workforce who smoked Marquette Sunday. I’m additionally very excited to lock into Oregon-Stanford on Thursday.
Feinswog: I hand over. Utah State is No. 14 within the RPI. Utah State! James Madison is No. 17 and SMU is 18th. None of them are in our ballot, in fact, however it’s an indicator of how totally different this season is. The SEC doesn’t move the eyeball check, but it’s going to as soon as once more get essentially the most groups within the NCAA Event, doubtless seven. Anyway, Nebraska and Wisconsin are the plain 1-2 and after that I had Texas, Louisville, Stanford and Oregon. Creighton is again in and I’m stunned my fellow voters didn’t give extra like to Florida State. And somebody has present Western Kentucky some respect, so I voted the Toppers in at No. 16. All Western Kentucky does is win and all that occurs is it retains falling within the RPI, now at No. 27 regardless of successful 19 in a row.
