After Reid Travis addition, Jon Rothstein ranks Kentucky…sixth?!

Most college basketball analysts bumped Kentucky up to No. 1 in their preseason polls after the Reid Travis news, but the addition of the Stanford grad transfer doesn’t impress Jon Rothstein much. Rothstein kept Kentucky SIXTH in his preseason top 25, behind Kansas, Gonzaga, Tennessee, Auburn (!), and Nevada.

As you might imagine, this did not go over well on the Big Blue internet.

Our fearless leader even weighed in while on vacation:

What is Rothstein’s reasoning (besides wanting clicks)?

Here’s the rest of his poll, if you dare.

    BBN is strong, their are a number of media members that do things just to poke the bear. I won’t mention names, but we all know some of this stuff is for clicks.

    Kant-says is a do nothing……again. I get the Tuh tuh ten uh see yuh…….And ALL awe Burnt…..but not No Vada…and Groin Saga still plays NO competition. The John Broth Stein is one sorely lacking prognosticator.

      Kansas wins the big 12 every year and only has 3 National Titles. That conference and KU are always overrated.

      Oh, and by having them on top his whole experience argument is bunk. Kansas returns one starter. We return 3 and add a 5th year player. We have more experience than Kansas. We are way deeper and more talented, too. And Kansas best player is a Memphis reject who is always in trouble. Kansas is the new Louisville. Dirtiest program in the country.

    Does anyone else think that Reid Travis looks like Brendan Fraser on Encino Man??

      I can see his argument. I’m kinda stuck on this one. The fact is, though, that all of these rankings are educated guesses.

    If Rafael Nadal was a KENTUCKY basketball player – under CAL’s tutelage – it’d have been hilarious watching CAL mock Rafa and his litany of OCD ritual play out with the final butt pickage and nose swipe.

    It doesn’t matter, even one little bit, where the talking heads rank UK. All that matters is winning games.

    Wrothsteen, shall be they name henceforth, for few will click on your useless banter and troll-like foolishness, and you will be wroth for garnering no virulence

    His cousin’s little sister is banging half the KU players and can’t stop raving about how good they are. He just realize what she means 😉
