    Wow… I figured at worse 15. It’s ok though, what matters at this point is that we are starting to play as a team who has an identity! Go cats and keep it up Richards!!

    Two spots? Seriously? We beat the #3 team in the country and that’s it? Fine, use it for fuel, boys…

      I like it when people put less expectations on us. I think the team plays better. I’m okay with being out of the top 10 until closer to tourney time.

    Are you serious. They lose to the 19th team in the country and only drop 4? Still in the top 10!
    And we only move up 2 with the #1 team we beat with 3 losses(Michigan St.) in front of us and the team that UL beat with 3 losses (Michigan) in front of us?
    No respect!

      the Evansville loss is hard to respect. But I think we’ve turned the corner. We’ll still make some dumb mistakes, but this team is good and will earn respect as the season goes on…not only with the media but with our own damn fans.

    We lost to Evansville and just had a 2 game losing streak before we beat UL. Lucky we are ranked at all. Keep us where we’re at for now , before guys start getting too cocky.

    If this were pUKe or UNC, the move would’ve been to the top 10!! We’ll have to win out to make the top 10.
