The BYU Cougars and Jimmer Fredette make Pat Forde’s Top 5 Teams this week, but they’re still a number 7 seed in both the AP and Coaches polls.
With the 2nd best RPI in the country, a win over San Diego State, and the future Player of the Year in our own Jimmer – WHAT THE HELL poll voters? Are you afraid your pretty boy Buckeye’s (the Big Brother team of us “little sisters of the poor”) will get their feelings hurt if a “mid-major” out ranks you going in to the big dance?
I mean, come on – the Cougars wooped on Arizona at Arizona. They beat Vermont in Vermont. They’ve won more away games and neutral court games than any other team in the country, AND they beat San Diego State convincingly who, at the time, was one of 2 (or was it 3) undefeated teams in the country – BYU is STILL SDSU’s only loss this season.
What’s it going to take to get BYU in the top five this season, or will it ever really happen?
Excited to have some debates and comments on this post! BRING IT you east coast bias punks!
