As expected, the Syracuse Orange dropped to their lowest rankings of the season following the Louisville loss, their third-straight.

As expected, the Syracuse Orange dropped to their lowest rankings of the season following the Louisville loss, their third-straight.

In the AP Poll, the Orange tumble all the way down to 17th, behind Saint Louis. Gonzaga is your new No. 1, followed by Indiana, Duke, Kansas and Georgetown (yuck). Other notable ranked teams include No. 8 Louisville, No. 15 Marquette, No. 20 Pitt and No. 24 Notre Dame.

The Orange are slightly higher in the Coaches Poll, clocking in at No. 16. It's Gonzaga, Indiana, Kansas, Duke and G'town in the top five. Other notables include No. 6 Louisville, No. 17 Marquette, No. 22 Pitt and No. 24 Notre Dame.

In the ESPN Power Rankings, SU drops six spots to No. 16 overall. Miles Simon is so unimpressed with the Orange (who have lost to no one but ranked teams in the last two weeks, FWIW), he's dropped them out of his Top 25 altogether.

Massey Ratings: 16th

CBS Sports 16th

The AP Voter You Arbitrarily Hate This Week? Elton Alexander of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, who dropped the Orange from his Top 25 completely. Paul Zeise of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette barely kept us in at No. 25.

The AP Voter You Arbitrarily Love This Week is a four-way tie between Bob Holt, Jason Franchuk, Percy Allen & Seth Davis, all of whom have the Orange up at No. 14.
