Quick Takes: Can FSU take it on the road?

Dave2015Florida State keeps piling up quality wins.  After beating Duke in Tallahassee on Tuesday, the Seminoles are 4-0 in the ACC and have seven wins against the Top 50 of the RPI – the most of any team in the nation.  The only remaining question is this: Can FSU take it on the road?  We ask because, to date, the Seminoles only true road game has been their win at UVA.  Next up, a trip to Chapel Hill.  There’s also a three-game road swing at the end of January.  Navigate those and FSU will be in the No. 1 seed discussion as the calendar flips to February.

No real surprise that Baylor lost at West Virginia.  The margin might be a little surprising, but the Mountaineers are a tough matchup, particularly in Morgantown.  We’ll see how the Bears respond.

Other Quick Takes from Tuesday …

  • Villanova continues to look like a No. 1 seed.  Dominate performance against Xavier.
  • Arkansas lost at home to Mississippi State – the same Bulldogs outfit that lost to Lehigh and East Tennessee State at home.  It’s not a horrible loss, but at home, it raises flags for the Razorbacks whose profile is looking very bubbly.
  • Indiana is now 1-3 in the Big Ten after losing at Maryland.  IU is also 1-4 in games played outside Bloomington.
  • Texas Tech edged Kansas State at home.  Both teams have NC SOS issues to deal with, but Tech’s profile inches ahead of K-State’s at the moment.  Both teams look good enough to be NCAA teams, but their profiles need help because their NC slates were less than impressive.
  • Syracuse is now 0-5 away from the Carrier Dome.  If the Orange are to re-emerge as an NCAA contender, they’ll have to win some quality games on the road. On the flip side, Virginia Tech ended its two-game slide by beating Syracuse.

Next bracket update is Thursday.  Busy night of hoops on Wednesday.  Should be fun.
