    Not surprising and totally fair IMO. I didn’t like us being ranked #1 in the beginning. Honestly, I hate all preseason rankings. They shouldn’t rank until about three weeks in.

    This ranking doesn’t matter, the one in April does.

    And BTW, Louisville fans crying about being jumped by KU in 3…,2…,1…

    1. Seanie

      I haven’t heard many Louisville fans complaining about that. It is very reasonable for them to get jumped by KU

  3. come on

    Seems like only one player carrying the load at KSR . Boys, you’re getting kind of heavy

    I cannot believe, although I think it’s completely fair, that UNC dropped so low. Usually UNC gets the benefit of the doubt and never drops more than 5-8 spots. I love it!!

    Cant wait to see what our boys will do against UNC and then Belmont

  5. BlueRedNeck

    They have us in about the right spot, IMO.

    Was going to say UofL can prove their mettle against UNC in a week or so, but UNC is looking suspect. Seeing that Memphis is coming in at #11, but have not seen their schedule to see if they have played anyone good.

    Speaking of UNC, how long before Ol’ Roy reinstates PJ? A week? Three days? Fifteen minutes?

      He is waiting on the NCAA.

    2. We Bag Hammers

      The NCAA is waiting on the check to clear.

      Either way, the sooner the better. My wife is an avid UNC fan (don’t ask how we make it through BBall season every year), so I want them at 100% when we take the “W”. I don’t want there to be any lingering excuses…

  6. Cats in Afghanistan

    I can dig it. Definitely going to beat Louisville, but seeing how they are reigning national champs, and haven’t lost a game yet (not like that’s been hard), we’ll give it to them for now.

    1. Seanie

      “Definitely” beating Louisville is a bit of a stretch. I’m not that confident.

  7. Isaac in Louisville

    How is indiana even getting votes?!

  8. Experience

    UK #4 with Jon Hood staring as Turtleman……yah,yah,yah,yah live action!!

    By the time those games get here UK will handle UNC with Harriston easy and I hope UL is at full strength when we play them, they may 2-3 players in jail before then so I want all the ghetto rats there so it’s more special when we give them their 1st loss of the season since they don’t play anyone before then.

    Can’t wait till dec 28th!! Cards roll cats w/wo ware!! Harrison’s are so overrated!!
