LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – I had a more difficult time settling on a Top 25 for my Associated Press college basketball poll ballot than the Denver Broncos had trying to tackle the Seattle Seahawks Sunday night.

Time out. I believe the Seahawks just forced another fumble.

Of course, there was one good thing about the Super Bowl smackdown: I had plenty of time to work on my AP selections, tossing several teams from last week and looking for some fresh faces.

Only 15 teams that I voted for last week lost at least once over the last week. Several lost twice – bye, bye UMass and Pittsburgh. Hello VCU and California.

I only dropped Arizona one spot for losing to California, but the Wildcats suffered a bigger loss with the news that forward Brandon Ashley is out for the reason with a broken foot.

Time to give more love to Florida, which has won 13 straight and remains unbeaten in the Southeastern Conference.

I also gave more love to Cincinnati after watching the Bearcats' impressive win at Louisville Thursday. Ditto for Texas, which is quietly putting together a solid season by winning six straight Big 12 games.

Two Big Ten teams disappeared – Ohio State and Wisconsin. Hard to believe the Buckeyes and Badgers were both unbeaten a month ago.

Here's my ballot.

1. Syracuse

2. Florida

3. Arizona

4. Wichita State

5. San Diego State

6. Cincinnati

7. Kansas

8. Michigan State

9. Villanova

10. Duke

11. Michigan

12. Kentucky

13. Louisville

14. Texas

15. Saint Louis

16. Creighton

17. Iowa

18. Iowa State

19. Virginia

20. California

21. VCU

22. Oklahoma

23. Gonzaga

24. Oklahoma State

25. Southern Miss
