Every year, it’s a test of one’s will to avoid drawing any conclusions prior to the beginning of conference play. For instance, two years ago the Texas Longhorns jumped out to an undefeated mark before beginning their conference slate. Non-conference opponents included Pitt, UNC, and Michigan State. After opening conference play with wins over what turned out to be the bottom of the Big XII, Texas sat atop both polls (I still don’t understand the point of polls in college basketball) and was generally recognized as the best team in the country.
Ohio State, previously No. 2, fell to No. 7 in the latest Coaches Poll following its loss to then-No. 15 Indiana on Saturday. Michigan State, Indiana and Michigan land just outside the top 10, at No. 11, 12 and 13, respectively, while No. 19 Wisconsin rounds out the Big Ten representatives. See the entire Coaches Poll top 25.
