Bleacher Creature Top 25 College Basketball Poll: Week Three

Jameson FlemingSenior Writer IDecember 11, 2008

Fourteen B/R writers ranked the top 25 teams in the country. Last week's poll featured UNC as the top ranked team, and the same would go for this week.

If you would like to participate in the B/R Top 25 poll, email me at jsflemin@syr.edu. In your email, rank your top 25 teams, but also provide the link to your B/R profile. Voting will open for next week's poll on Friday, Dec. 12th and will close Sunday, Friday 14th at 10PM EST.

This week's poll will just be the outcome, since it's a few days late because I was away on a trip without Internet access.

One quick trend: There is two tiers of teams right now. There's the top 12 or so that are either undefeated or don't have any bad losses. Then you enter a second tier of teams that have one or two losses, with at least one of them being a bad loss.

The rankings reflect the outcome of games up to Sunday, Dec. 7th.
