Matt Cashore-US PRESSWIRE
New week, but same top five. A little bit of shuffling in the middle and bottom as the 2012 season reaches its conclusion.
I don't know about anyone else, but I sure am ready for basketball season right about now. Although it will be instructive to see what happens in the SEC Championship Game for national purposes.
Closer to home, because I live out west and have watched more than my fair share of Pac-12 games this season, I plan on following Stanford/UCLA part deux as well as paying attention to the Northern Illinois/Kent State MACtion (since the person to whom I am related by marriage received her master's degree from Kent).
Anyway, congrats to Notre Dame.
