    a close game vs a top 10 opponent without ya starting PG makes ya drop 5 spots??
    Whatever, we’ll be back when it counts ….

    no problem with this it all. We are the highest ranked team with a loss. All that matters is that we are a #1 or #2 seed in March. I would love to play any of the teams above us, none of them scare me.

    1 & 2 – Well said, both of you.

    2) 5 spots is not that bad when 1-7 are unbeaten and 9-11 are unbeaten. I agree with #1, it’s probably about right until we know what’s going on at PG. NC State dropped 9 spots for losing to Oklahoma St (previously unranked).

    3)thats what Calipari has pretty much said, he knows by March there isn’t a team
    that can match his talent. On a big stage, if the best teams we possibly have to play
    is IU and UL, then I like our chances to hang #9

    Who cares about the rank right now…but there are not 7 better teams than UK, even today. People don’t want to hear it, but we are a top 3 team right now. Not that we’re great, but everyone else sucks. UK and UCLA will have more draft picks than the ENTIRE top ten right now. The top two teams have 1, maybe 2 NBA players combined. So, if you can get good odds on UK for the title right now, take it.

    UK could lose on a last second overtime half court heave by Duke, and drop 4-5 spots…now if Duke lost to a team like Lehigh by 10 at cameron stadium they would move up 3 spots

    Yep, that’s what happens when you have the nerve to play some real competition early in the season. Matters not the ranking in November.

    #18. I don’t agree at all that IU and UL only have 1-2 NBA players combined. Dieng, Behanan,Blackshear and Harrel will all be NBA players. Maybe not all of them will be stars, but they will be in the NBA. But I agree that there are not 7 better teams than UK.

    I know I’m getting picky here, but maybe somebody could explain this to me.

    San Diego St. gets beat by a lower seeded team in the first round of the tourney last year. They’ve lost to Syracuse (not close)this year, and beaten two cupcakes. How are they in the top 25?
