We all expect the Boiler's first ever #1 ranking on Dec 6, but how will the votes fall? Gonzaga lost again Saturday night, Duke lost to O$U, Baylor was #4 and still unbeaten. Polls and metrics still like Villanova. Here's what I see happening...
Boilers #1 with no more than 75% of 1st place votes.
Baylor #2 with up to half the votes Purdue doesn't get.
Nova or Duke #4
UCLA or Texas #5
Until Gonzaga lost to Alabama, I thought there was a chance they might leap us back into the stop spot. I can still see someone holding out and putting them in a top 3 ballot though.
