Considering we lost by only one point to the #7 team with our roster sorely depleted, do we stay in the top 25 after this loss?

No we won't come back into the rankings unless we beat Duke.

Florida and a run of AAC wins will get us back.

I thought the same but AP won't have a 2 loss team in the rankings in the 2nd week. Even though we are a top 25 team. Terrible system.

We'll definitely fall out of the Top 25 and it might be a few weeks before we get back in. Definitely would need to beat Duke.

That said, I'm more worried about the Tourney and our seeding. I'll gladly trade a few unranked weeks in November/December for a good seeding in March.

we don't deserve to be ranked. we're 3-2 and have essentially struggled to win all three games against iffy competition. we've yet to put together a good 20 minutes, let alone a good game. we will be a work in progress and will continue to get better.

I've always been one to say that rankings don't matter. That said...

#21 Maryland lost to Virginia
#24 Illinois lost to Miami
#25 Utah is losing at halftime to Wichita State

UConn is currently #27 (i.e. 2 spots out of the poll), so if they take care of business against Yale on Friday there is chance they could be ranked again going into the Duke game.

But then again Oklahoma got blown out by Wisconsin and then actually went from being unranked to ranked, so there is that.

Still ranked in the poll that ESPN doesn't acknowledge anymore that their name used to be on, so there's that.

Not a single media outlet other than USA Today acknowledges the coaches poll anymore. It now exists solely so some yokel coach(es) can vote teams that did not win the national championship as the #1 team in the final poll...

Ranked? What has this team done to deserve being ranked except win the title LAST year? Last time I checked you don't get any points for almost beating a top 5 team.

North Caroline will remain in the top 25 with 2 losses, while Iowa who beat them and has 2 losses will not crack the top 25

It seems like everyone's very salty right now...Relax, it's early December. Had that 3 not gone in we'd be ranked top 20 again.

Yes, after the last game of the season UConn will be ranked No.1.

With the amount of top 25 teams to lose this week and being just outside the top 25 a win vs Yale will most likely vault them back into the poll.

No. No we won't. We do have the number 1 most spoiled fan base in all of CB. Get a grip.

If we beat duke we will drop out of the top 50 and duke will jump kensucky to number one in the AP.
