Kentucky back in the Top 15 of Coaches Poll

After jumping six spots in the AP Poll to No. 12, Kentucky made a similar rise in the Coaches Poll. The Cats are up four spots to No. 14 this week, just ahead of North Carolina.

How the Tar Heels only fell three spots after being clobbered by Louisville at home is beyond me. Regardless, here’s the poll in full:

    At this point these pills are a joke between undefeated Michigan not being #1 and UNC being ranked too high every week.

      Hell if you don’t strive to be in the top 15 how can you be number 1?

    I could care less about where others are ranked. I’m good with #15 right. Now, go out and prove you’re better than this.

    They’re ranked #11 in the NET. Those are the ONLY rankings that matter now. Just like the CFP rankings in football.

    The people that complain about these polls don’t watch enough basketball.
