    Does it hurt less to get beat by No.2 rather than No. 11.
    Glad we could help ’em out, Hope we see ’em in March.

    So we drop five spots after losing to the now #2 team & still undefeated UCLA? PUKE lost to a KU team that already had loss and only fell 5. SMDH
    Can’t wait to see how much we get screwed in the Coaches Poll. PUKE only fell 2 spots in that poll after their loss, so I’m guessing we drop 5-6….

      It’s December 5th. Who cares where we’re ranked? The only ranking that matters is the one that comes out around April 10th or so. Calm down.

      Hey look everyone!! Luether is defending the other teams, but not Kentucky. Weird…..

    doesn’t matter … we have 2 more games and a bunch of practices before we play unc and ul … if we win those 2, we’ll be ranked high enough

    6 feels good. UCLA may go unbeaten…at least through March. Hate to lose but that weight is off of our backs. In the event of a rematch that bullseye will be weighing them down and not us. I would like our chances in that case. I think we’ll run the table from here out. Go Cats
