Definitely not justifying the #1 vote, but USC did beat the Gators, in Gainesville, last week. Their #10 probably isn't too far off. OTH, not sure how Washington moves up by beating the unranked Squawks and losing to us at home...???
8-0! Another sweep this morning, this time over UC Irvine. Should easily crack the top ten with the 3 teams ahead of us all losing (UCLA and USC each lost twice, and Florida somehow lost to Northern Arizona). Hopefully our success so far can translate to a huge crowd at Huff next weekend!
BIG with 5 teams in top 10 - no other conference has more than 1. We might be #8 in the country, but still only 5 in the BIG. Big weekend with #10 Creighton and #27 Northern Iowa. NIU has beaten Creighton and #20 Kentucky.
When does the next AVCA poll come out? Beat Purdue and their next game or two and I'd think the Illini should jump up a few spots, maybe into the Top 5. There are a couple teams ahead of them that have more than one loss. Texas has 3 already and is somehow #5.
