How they voted: Badgers in 2014-15 AP basketball poll (Week 10)

Losing moves you down in the Associated Press top 25 poll. There’s little doubt about that.

But what happens when you suffer a road loss without arguably one of the best players in college basketball and your starting point guard gets hurt as well?

Well, that’s why they call it a poll.

Wisconsin did drop, from No. 4 to No. 7, after its second defeat of the season, losing 197 points in the process (although one voter didn’t cast a ballot the previous week).

Reactions to Wisconsin’s loss at Rutgers were quite varied. A couple didn’t move the Badgers down at all. Most slotted UW down a few spot, but a couple now have the Badgers in the double-digit range.

Here’s a look at the ballots from this week and last:
