Only three Pac-10 teams remain ranked


The polls are out and so is the Pac-10. Basically.

After the upsets in the conference recently, there are only three Pac-10 teams left in the Associated Press poll: No. 4 UCLA, No. 9 (yes, nine) Washington State and No. 23 Oregon, which has lost 117 of its last 118 games – at least it seems like it. Wisconsin moved up to No. 1 in the poll, with Ohio State in the second spot and defending national champion Florida third. By the way, Santa Clara earned six points.

In the ESPN/USA Today coaches’ poll, WSU won its only game but stayed 11th (huh?) and Oregon dropped to 24th, but still in. The top four are Ohio State, Wisconsin, Florida and UCLA. By the way, Santa Clara received no votes, even though outgoing Bronco coach Dick Davey is on the panel.

By the way, I will be at the Gonzaga game tonight and will post a link to the game story as soon as it is over. Also, we’ll have a commentary on the results of senior night. The big question is, will Sean Mallon be able to play. My guess is he’ll make an appearance if he can.
