Kentucky became the unanimous No. 1 team in the AP poll yesterday and the Cats received all but one vote from the ESPN college basketball staff’s new Power Rankings today. Goodman, who’s openly admitted he’s anti-John Calipari, dropped Kentucky to No. 2 behind Duke. He took to Twitter this morning to explain the move:
Duke and Kentucky are 1A and 1B right now. I went with Duke at No. 1 this week because feel Blue Devils resume a little more impressive. Duke’s win at Wiscy more impressive than UK neutral-court win against Kansas. Duke’s neutral over Michigan St even to UK home win vs. UT. Then Duke has beaten Stanford and Temple on a neutral court while Kentucky beat a Providence team that has lost to BC and Brown at home. I know UK fans. I’m a hater. I’ve only ranked ‘Cats No. 1 in preseason and for the first three weeks of year. Duke win at Wiscy difference.
So there ya go. Thanks for clearing that up, Jeff.
