    Their resume is helping tremendously. And LSU being a legit contender kept them from falling

    Who are Purdue and Kansas paying off to get their spots? Ridiculous

    That last-second offensive goaltending tip-in likely cost us the #2 spot. Regardless, I still kinda hope we wind up the 2-seed, so we can play in Louisville.

      Hey man, he’s just tryin to get his name out there. Nothin wrong with that. Good luck buddy

      cats646 He’s promoting his own UK blog site…on KSR. Yeah, nothing wrong with that at all. Maybe ESPN/ABC should start allowing Fox and CBS Sports to run ads on their site. (???)

      Again, there is nothing wrong with what he is doin. Tryin to make a living. If putting his name on competitors site helps him then by all means, he should do it. As long as he isn’t breaking any laws he can do whatever the fuk he wants to do to make money. Feel free to look, but I seriously doubt it’s illegal to put his blogs name in the comment section on a sports site. Find something better to do.

    Gonzaga at 2 is ridiculous. They’ve played absolutely no one and PRACTICE all year for the tournament. Just ridiculous. TN should not have dropped that far certainly after beating Gonzaga.

    Week 11, Duke lost to Syracuse at home and dropped 1 spot to #2. Syracuse who is 17-8. 12-5 when they beat Duke. Tenn lost to the #5 team in the country on the road and dropped 4 spots. Bias????

      This is one of the many reasons I hate Duke.

    U can add mich St, UNC, loserville to that list also don’t know how they stay rated as high. Before the Clemson game loserville had lost 3 of 4 and should of lost there last game when Clemson went in soft on last shot of the game on a point blank at the rim shot.

    Looking at the “body of work”, I don’t see how Tennessee should suffer such a precipitous fall after losing to a hot Kentucky team in Rupp. Even more so with a direct win over Gonzaga and the only other loss in OT to a full strength Kansas team. Doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things, but that’s a whole lot of ACC love. Go, Cats!

      Totally agree, UT shouldn’t have dropped out of top 4. (Honestly, I’m shocked they didn’t actually drop us out of the top ten after LSU got us). Dook is really good, so are we. Gonzaga looks great, but there’s really no way to ever be sure with them until they’re losing in March. Seems like every single year the talking heads always say that “this” year’s Gonzaga can win it all, yet they never come close. My beef is with UVA. They’re darlings for some reason. Not only do I think us and UT could beat them 8 out of every 10 games, I think LSU, Mississippi State, and even Auburn could beat them more often than not.
