We probably don't need separate threads for each of Purdue, Butler, Valpo, and the variety of other teams followed around here.
Butler is 6-0 after disposing of #8 Arizona in a tournament in Las Vegas last night. Butler has received some votes, but should be in the top 25 come Monday.
Purdue is 4-1 after winning the Cancun tournament. Their only loss was a narrow defeat at home against third-ranked, defending-champion Villanova. Purdue is currently ranked #17.
Valpo is 5-1, losing only at #4 Oregon.
Notre Dame is 5-0, but they haven't faced a major test yet. They have received some votes but are unranked.
Even IPFW already has a big win on its resume.
Notre Dame (14)
After a couple lean years in recent history, it's a great time to be a college basketball fan in Indiana.
