If im doing rankings considering teams with all their players healthy, and considering games that were lost due to temporary injuries, it looks like this:
This is where it gets really hard for me. I really penalize teams for losing at home because it is so difficult for road teams to win on the road that if you want to be the best, you just cant lose at home. I know it would be a total homer pick to put NC State here, but I will anyway. But I think from a talent/potential standpoint, they are easily a top 10 team. But the depth is what kills them. You go on the road where you get fouls called on you more, in a difficult environment, and when you only play 6 guys, it really hurts. I feel that NC State is definitely more deserving than OSU, a team that has a home loss. I also feel that Michigan State is more deserving. Especially considering MSU beat Kansas and OSU lost at home. I use this more as a way to separate the two than MSU defeating OSU at home since it is so difficult to win on the road.
9 Michigan State
10 NC State
Of course if I am doing the biased, media thing, where teams dont move as fluidly and you have to move down if you lose, I would probably have something like:
