The changes in the Coaches Poll are not quite as drastic as those in the AP poll.
For example, Arizona is still ranked 14th nationally here while Syracuse is 19th. Those rankings are flip-flopped in the AP Poll.
What is interesting, however, is that Louisville hopped up into the Coaches Poll. I think that the Cardinals are really good, but at this point, based on who they’ve beaten, I’m not sure they deserve to be ranked over a number of teams that are on the wrong side of the top 25.
