    Duke gets all the calls.

    (Not sure I agree with us passing Virginia during the lack of any action, but whatever)

    From what I hear, we didn't execute the packed line as well as the Hoos, so I'm not sure if that's why we jumped them..

    Coaches were diagnosed with excessive eggnog consumption after the previous poll. More clear of mind now. (OK, I readily concede UVA is hardly a laughable choice).

    Last week's lead USAToday sports editorial: "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus!"

    This week's lead USAToday sports editorial. "Sorry, Virginia, there is also a Grinch..."

    Coaches polls are great...in theory. In practice, they live in a bubble concerned only with their next opponent. They have to. They cannot afford to spend time or energy on who is doing what around the country. Reporters are paid to do just that.

    I'm thinking they saw Duke 1 and UVa 4 in the other poll and some shifted.

    AP voter Graham Couch still refuses to rank us because we have not had a "true road game".

    Based on his logic, the Wake Forest game will be this team's first real test.

    At this point in the season, why does it matter?

    It may be a somewhat meaningless early honor, but an honor nonetheless. While we have gotten pretty blasé about it as Duke fans, I bet it means a lot to UVA and also our young players.

    If you’re not first, you’re last.

    Only a tiny percentage of college players can say that they ever played on a number one ranked team at any time. It is not as meaningful as a late season or ultimate number one for sure, but it does matter. Helps recruiting, tickets sales, etc, as well.

    Well, seeing as the highest rated Pac 12 team in the Pomeroy rankings is #39, I think the voters should be lauded for not falling for that well known West Coast bias.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.
