Doug Gottlieb wouldn’t put UK at No. 1

The new rankings will be coming out in about two hours and Kentucky should be the top-ranked team in both polls. But there is at least one person with a microphone out there who wouldn’t put UK at No. 1. Doug Gottlieb.

The former sticky bandit at Notre Dame said he doesn’t trust Marquis Teague at point guard.

So, which team is his No. 1?

    I love our team and I think we definately have a chance to win it all, but I can’t say I disagree with putting Ohio St ahead of us. Right now our resume looks better, but they are the one team I would like to avoid in March/April.

    Gottlieb has always been a UK hater.. he may be correct in saying that they are the most complete… But the rankings isn’t a hypothesis or a what if scenario, RECORDS ACTUALLY MATTER…. HELLO… so as long as they have more losses than UK, I will take UK

    He makes a legitimate argument, can’t criticize him for a logical opinion. Ohio State is good, and like he said, Teague isn’t impressing anyone with his play.
    Cats just have to keep winning.

    I guarantee you that Gout-lib picked OSU as #1 because Kem Pomeroy rankings have OSU #1. What he doesn’t understand is that they have three loses and it is simply unacceptable to put them above UK based on either past performance or potential. UK has a much higher ceiling that anyone else by far.

    -8- the ? Wasn’t “what team is the best in the land?” it was “which team should be ranked #1?”…..,, there’s nothing logical about placing them first….schedules and records matter when you’re talking about placings I’m afraid

    I think we should be placed first AND are the better team but if someone opined differently on the latter, I wouldn’t knock them. but that being said uk is the clear cut #1 team and this week’s decision is easier to make than most weeks as far as I can tell

    Ok I know I’m gonna get wrapped in the mouth for this, but who the heck is Doug Gotlieb? I’m gathering he plays or played for notre dame which probably makes him either a child molester or a closet child molester… What is his other claim to fame?

    13) He got kicked out of school for stealing someone’s credit card and went to play for Sutton, I think. He’s always gone against UK. He also seems to know less about basketball than most people with his job.

    Like most people, Gottlieb has an agenda, so his opinions must must judged in that light. Not dissimilarly, many UK fans indicated in a recent KSR poll, that they would rather have UK at #2, fearing the burden of being #1. A clear lack of courage in both instances.

    Kentucky is number 1 today without question. OSU is however the number 1 team of those teams I would hope to avoid in the tournament.

    I would leave Syracuse at 1. If we should lose at Georgia because Davis was sidelined what would your ranking be?

    Hell, his picking against us is reason to celebrate. None of these talking heads really have a clue, and their comments are always agenda driven. Ohio State is a really good basketball team. But in reality, that has nothing to do with his tweet. He just be hating. F**k Him with a barrowed pecker,,,,,or in his case,,a Stollen one.

    ND rolled Cuse, I’m not sure if Melo had played they woulda won anyway. It’s all speculation, but Cuse haven’t played one TOUGH team on the road yet, and they finally do = a loss. Just saying…..

    It’s still early in the season. His opinion means absolutely nothing. None of the top 5 are playing like no. 1 teams right now but we will be no. 1. The next two weeks will be a good test for the Cats for sure if they come out of it with no losses.

    Rankings don’t matter at this point, but OSU has had their chance to be 1#. When you lose games you don’t get to be ranked #1, no matter how “complete” you look on paper.

    Please don’t link to this yahoo. That is undoubtedly why he is going against Kentucky – he knows the power of BBN to drive his online ranking. Fans shouldn’t listen to his show either. Write about it, but don’t link to him. That just gives him the audience he’s looking for.

    Why does ESPN still employ this clown? From what I can gather, hatred for Gottlieb transcends individual fan-bases: EVERYBODY THINKS HE IS A D-BAG. If he ever comes to KY, he might get his a$$ kicked.

    OSU has a better PG but our wing (MKG, Darius) > Buford. Davis isnt a physical beast but he changes the game more than Sullinger.

    So help me when I saw that pic of DG with Katz, I thought to myself that guy looks just like that little fella that played the Banjo on the porch at the begining of Deliverence, and he’s all “GROWED” up with a suit and tie instead of bib overalls. Just wondering though, when he squeals like a pig, does he enjoy it?

    Sounds like he’s having a Taylor Swift-Kanye moment. Thats why its the coaches & ap polls not the DG poll.

    I wonder if DG stole the children in his profile pic? Anyway, he can bag on our point guard all he wants when the dust settles we will be cutting down the nets in NOLA.

    I don’t care what number you put in front of Kentucky we still get everybody’s best shot. So with that said might as well be number 1. Besides this time last year, look at UK and look at Ohio St. What would you have thought if someone had told you we would have to play OSU to get to the elite eight what would you have thought. So Teague will be fine.

    I think he’s right, though. The analyst rankings (like Pomeroy and Sagarin) have us around #5. As flawed as this team is, though, we are a three pointer away from being perfect. Unbelievable. I don’t know if we are that good or college basketball is that bad.
