  1. Not only should MN NOT be in the top 20, but how does the 20th place team make the cover of the article? I would think the #1 or #2 team would be there?

    • I think it’s because it was one of the biggest upsets of the weekend between top-20 teams? I dunno, maybe they’re trying to give the illusion that Minnesota is hot right now. After the Star Tribune’s article today, I don’t think anyone is fooled…

      • Good point…but with that I would think the dogs would be the cover team then. They should be the biggest mover! They swept the #3 team! So many writers or whatever try to….will….the gophers to mean something, even when they are so not deserving…

        • The dogs are not in the top 20. I agree it was a big upset, but this is an article how on how ranked teams fared not biggest upsets of the weekend by un ranked teams. I see your point tho.

          • 4th toughest schedule in the nation and half of the conference is in the top 20 and top 16 pair wise. Take a look at some of the teams between 13-19 and tell me the deserve to be where they are.

          • 4th toughest schedule…lol. Their SOS is 11th. But whatever. Half of your conference (6 teams, so 3..wow) is in the top 20 (big deal). The top 13-14 make the show. Good luck..

          • Look at RPI ranks in uscho, pretty sure it says 4. Make fun of the big ten all you want, trust me I’m not a fan of it either but facts are facts. Remember 2 years ago when No Dak only got in because Wisconsin won the Big Ten Tourney? Anything can happen come tournament time.
