I’ve changed my publishing date for the Power Rankings. From now on, I’ll wait until the weekend action is complete. With the new TV contracts, that means on most weeks the rankings won’t be up until Monday (for next week, with Penn State playing on Monday, it means waiting until Tuesday). This will ensure a more accurate rating than simply publishing on Sunday when not all of the weeks games have been completed.
Penn State has moved ahead of Purdue in the rankings since last week and has actually begun to separate a little from them. They improvement since they hit rock bottom in the Florida tournament has been quite noticeable.
