Cats hold down that third-place ranking

The ESPN/USA Today Coaches poll was just released and Kentucky is No. 3 for the third week in a row. Syracuse received all but one of the first place votes, with the lone non-Orange vote going to No. 2 Ohio State. Louisville, Duke, North Carolina, Baylor, Missouri, UConn, and Florida round out the Top 10.

Undefeated Murray State moved up a spot from last week to No. 21.

Go Cats.

    Thanks, Drew for reporting this.

    That said, the Coaches’ (SID) poll is a meaningless pile of dung that should be roundly ignored by all sane fans of the BBN.

    Everybody can now go back and enjoy your extended Christmas holiday.

    Whoo #3 wow for the third week in a rrow. Syracuse has tall task trying to go against Uconn , Louisville in the big east holding that top spot thats the the thing about polls some teams can reamain their and not have a challege to be toppled why some have it alot less difficult Hate to say it I,m sure my fellow bbn brothers will disagree ,but we do have a easier road. big east, Acc, Big 10,Big 12,Sec .In that order of difficulty.

    5) Not sure you can say that right now. SEC has a recent history of under-performing expectations while everyone assumes Big east and ACC are always superior. Those leagues have just as many cupcakes, and depending on scheduling, a school in the Big East could have an easy road due to the sheer number of teams, many of which are not particularly good. The Cats have home and home ( 2 games) against Florida and Vanderbilt. Miss State, Alabama and Arkansas should be tough games as well. I feel confident that our Cats will be sufficiently tested by the SEC this year before heading into the NCAA tourney. When Texas A&M and Missouri join, look out. The SEC may well be the premier Bball conference in the country

    syracuse only has 2 meaningful away games this year.. @louisville and @uconn .. both in feb. the rest of the good teams they play, they get at home. those two may be the only 2 they lose in regular season all year.
