Am I biased and sentimental toward the little guys when it comes to my rankings? Absolutely. It's my ballot, and I'll cry if I want to. So there are some very good teams that I have tied for 26th, including Saint Joseph's, VCU, UCLA, Green Bay and Gonzaga. As for the four teams that I dropped from last week, they still have a chance to make up ground in the next two weeks, but I think it's safe to say they have bigger concerns than just getting back on to my AP ballot. It's the most wonderful month of the year, but for Kentucky, Iowa, Michigan State and Ohio State, it's getting late a little early around here.
