Big jumps by Vandy, Texas A&M, and Louisville, the latter of which was unranked last week, which Rick Pitino blamed on the sex scandal. Now what will he whine about?

    Love basketball season.

    Hey, did you guys notice that you can leave comments for everything posted, but not for Mr. Millers piece on Bourbon? Interesting. What is that?

    Also think Monmouth should be ranked.

    Who the hell has UL played to gain a spot in the top 25?

      Someone ranked inside the top 200.

    We’re gaining on Duke being 2nd on the list of most weeks all time ranked #1.

    Vandy is a pretty solid team. They should be just outside the top ten right now. Louisville is ranked now only because they are a “name” school who is undefeated, but they haven’t earned a ranking at all.

      Both A&M and Vandy looked liked real challengers and could split with us during the season, and don’t forget about Ben Simmo… I mean LSU. For the first time in a couple years there will be more than 1 or 2 competitive SEC teams, should really get us ready for the tourney this year.

    I want UK to be ranked #1 in football. True football fan here.

      We’d need to drop to D-III for that to happen

      How long have you been wanting that abgunz. Maybe your post would be better served in a football thread.

    Love Maggard’s analysis and want his posts and the football podcasts to continue year around.

      Football is a short season compared to basketball, but yes, he give better insight than most teams have.

      UL slappies just have the same ol media and nothing new.

    doesn’t matter what UL is ranked right now, they play Michigan St on Wednesday, that will be interesting

    Louisville is actually a bit better than I expected this year, considering all the scoring they lost from last year. Their bigs might give us problems, but I expect that our guards and the #3 spot will give them far greater problems.

    LOL at IU. Crean is to IU basketball what Stoops is to UK football. I just hope it doesn’t take our administration 8 years to realize it. Hard to believe IU has had that clown for that long. If not for Dwyane Wade he would be coaching at the NAIA level. Never leave, Tom Crean!

      It’s hard to tell how good a team is when you basically play no bodies all at home.

      Albany was just a couple points off of the Duke spread and Wright State was 4 or 5 points off of that and we played them at home and not at a neutral site.
