Zags now in both polls, but are they too low?


So they defeat the then-No. 2 team in the nation on a neutral floor. They suffer their lone defeat against a team now ranked as high as 18th in the nation. They rout a local rival to raise their record to 6-1.

But the Zags still aren't in the top 20. The new polls are out, and GU is 21st in the USA Today coaches' poll and 22nd in the Associated Press rankings.

So I'm asking you: Where do you think the Zags really belong right now? You have a choice: Top 10; 11-20; the pollsters have it right; or they should be unranked.

Let me know. I'm going to right about polls, surveys and the like in my newspaper column tomorrow. But you get to have a jump on the rest of the readership. Click in and share your opinion.

By the way, UCLA is No. 1 in the AP poll, Washington is 13, Arizona 16 and Nevada 24. The Zags still have ranked teams Duke (11), Washington, Memphis (14), Nevada and Virginia (25) on the schedule (Texas is 26th).
