Play better and get less respect. That seems to be the message the pollsters are sending to the Hoyas this week. After destroying JMU and easily beating a good Oral Roberts team Georgetown finally looked like the squad that got all of the hype at the beginning of the year.
And the result? Less votes in the polls. I didn't expect us to vault back into the Top 25. We don't deserve that (yet). But I did think that a couple of the early believers might start turning an eye back towards the Blue & Gray. No such luck.
Last week, after their back-to-back losses to Oregon and Duke, GU received only 5 votes in the ESPN/USA Today poll and 60 votes in the AP poll. After a very impressive week, the Hoyas now only managed 2 votes from ESPN/USA Today voters and 24 votes from the AP.
It looks like the road back to respect will be a long one.
