The AP Voter You Arbitrarily Hate This Week continues to be Jon Wilner, who has SU at No. 14 (Louisville is No. 4). He's joined by Scott Reid who also has the Orange down that low as well.
The AP Voter You Arbitrarily Love This Week is Kevin Dunleavy of the Washington Examiner. He's got SU all the way up at No. 6, one spot ahead of Gonzaga. God bless.
