The AP Voter You Arbitrarily Hate This Week is a tie between Cormac Gordon and Jin Wilner, both of whom have Syracuse at No. 11 overall. Cormac at least has the good sense to put Louisville behind us while Wilner has them at NUMBER 4!

The AP Voter You Arbitrarily Love This Week is Roger Clarkson of the Athens Banner-Herald who has SU all the way at No. 2. The Philadelphia Inquirer's Joe Juliano has SU at No. 3, so he deserves a little love as well.
