Note: There is a new pollster this week, which may account for some of the small changes in rankings.

What to do with the top 10 after another weekend of everybody beats everybody creating a mess of circular logic?!?!?!

Here is my top 10
UCLA (with all 8 first place votes)
Santa Clara
Colorado State
Penn State

I think Colorado State gets a boost for the Pitt win but doesn't overtake them because of the Penn State loss
I think Pitt stays at 2 but Santa Clara and BYU move closer point wise after the Colorado State loss. The thing saving them is beating Penn State by 7. I could see any of these three shuffling around in the 2-4 positions.
Georgia drops out of the top 10 after losses to Va Tech and Boston College
Penn State comes in at #10 due to the win over Colorado State
BC should come into the top 20 but doubt they'll make it into the top 10
VaTech should move up into the teens but don't think they'll crack top 10 either

Top 20 poll will likely be MAWLL heavy in a cluster. Hopefully some of that will sort itself out next weekend with a lot of in conference games.
Mile high tourney should prove really interesting this weekend. Michigan could get tested by some tough competition. Georgia will try to make up for the 2 losses this weekend.
Colorado and Colorado State will be trying to add to their resumes to convince the committee that the RMWLL deserves to have 3 teams at nationals!!

I definitely do not envy the pollsters this week. (Also interesting to note that there was a new pollster for this past week...)

Wish there was an easier way to see quality wins and "bad" losses for each of the teams in the rankings - that would help keep things straight. Or maybe that's just the March Madness consuming my thoughts. It's hard to keep it all straight.

I generally agree with HurstLax but I do think this is the make or break weekend for Michigan. I think they are currently flying under the radar...too bad UCLA and Michigan didn't end up playing at Shootout. But I definitely don't think they should be outside the top 10 as dominator had them. Big clump of MAWLL between 10-20...each team probably a big threat for an upset at Nationals.
