University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Let’s play “Who didn’t vote for Kentucky?”!!!

Two of the 32 members on the USA Today Sports Board of Coaches had the audacity to rank a team over Kentucky in this week’s new poll. The Cats became the unanimous No. 1 team in the Associated Press poll with all 64 first place votes, but Duke and Arizona received one vote apiece in the coaches poll.

So I’ll ask you, Big Blue Nation: Whodunnit?

Tommy Amaker, Harvard
Randy Bennett, Saint Mary’s
Jim Boeheim, Syracuse
Todd Bozeman, Morgan State
Glenn Braica, St. Francis Brooklyn
Rick Byrd, Belmont
Scott Cherry, High Point
Tim Cluess, Iona
Ed Conroy, Tulane
Keith Dambrot, Akron
Scott Drew, Baylor
Matt Driscoll, North Florida
Steve Fisher, San Diego State
Bruiser Flint, Drexel
Mark Fox, Georgia
John Gallagher, Hartford
Ray Harper, Western Kentucky
Dick Hunsaker, Utah Valley
George Ivory, Arkansas-Pine Bluff
Ben Jacobson, Northern Iowa
Rob Jeter, Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Danny Kaspar, Texas State
Mike McConathy, Northwestern State
Greg McDermott, Creighton
Matt Painter, Purdue
Dave Paulsen, Bucknell
Randy Rahe, Weber State
Joe Scott, Denver
Herb Sendek, Arizona State
Shaka Smart, Virginia Commonwealth
Bob Williams, UC-Santa Barbara
Mike Young, Wofford

Bruiser Flint is Cal’s buddy, so we can remove him. Greg McDermott seems like a good guy. Was it Shaka Smart? Did Shaka Flocka Flame pick against the Cats? Maybe it was Jim Boeheim. He’s had some recent beef.

Yeah, I’m going with Boeheim. Give me Boeheim and Herb Sendek. Sendek has Arizona in a few weeks and would like to upset the top-ranked team.

Your turn…

    I agree that it’s gotta be Boeheim. He has a problem giving other great teams their due. Maybe it’s his competitive nature crossing the line to childishness. Whatever.

      Oh, and then some random coach accidentally voted for the wrong Wildcats. Happens all the time.

    Who cares who didn’t vote for UK? There’s legitimate reasons for voting one of those teams over UK. Duke moreso than Arizona (who probably should have lost to a better Gonzaga squad), but they can vote for another team #1 if they want. That’s why the polls are the average of all the pollsters and not just one person’s votes.

    It wouldn’t shock me if it actually was Jimmy.

    His behavior this past year has been so erratic: the “BS!” ref chase to midcourt, publicly blaming Cal for K getting flack over recruiting advantages when no one asked him, randomly calling out Melo for being a bad student in his book for no apparent reason, keeping wraps on the whole ball-boy extortion ordeal.

    Something is going on with him, and I can’t be the only one noticing.

      Boeheim has a history of throwing his players under the bus. You would think he’d be a little more grateful towards the guy (Melo) who got him his only NCAA title.

    Simple: Tommy Amaker (Duke puppet) and Jimmy Blowhim.

    it’s weird how if you go to the site you can look at every week’s poll by ballot for last year, but it’s not working for this year … or at least I couldn’t find it for this year

    In the AP poll last week there were 65 first place votes. This week we are unanimous, but with only 64 votes. Did someone just not cast their ballot? This bothers me a little bit. Anyone else?

    Pollster is no longer a site.

    Bill Knight of Texas El Paso’s paper didn’t vote.

    You can see who voted and who they voted for here.

      thx Neal. Bill Knight placed UK #1 last week. Consider me satisfied.

    This is a no brainer with very SIMPLE logic.

    #1. Rob Jeter voted for Duke becase Jeter’s wife’s cousin knows that Wisconsin is the best team in the country because everyone at her office in Milwaukee says so. Since Duke beat Wisconsin, Duke must be the best team.

    #2. Dave Paulson is good friends with the Bucknell dude who wrote that story bashing Calipari that we UK fans in turn blasted him for being “butt hurt” when he wrote it. So obviously, he’ll never vote for a Calipari run squad again. He had to choose one team to pick so he went out to get his morning paper when he noticed his neighbor’s dog, Fifi, micturated on an article about wildcats. Knowing he couldn’t vote for the Kentucky Wildcats run by top coach in the country, John Calipari, he settled for voting for the Arizona Wildcats run by Sean Miller who happens to be the best friend of Fifi’s owner’s uncle who lives out in Mesa.

    Simple guys…get off Boeheim’s back. He’s old and it might cause him to poop himself. Anyway, everyone knows that when he votes he just points to a team when he’s not wearing his glasses; it just happens that this week he pointed to Kentucky.

    I say Amaker and AZ St. Coach Sendek if its not Bloeheim.

    Who knew Sendek was still coaching? Talk about falling to the unknowns.

    I remember in 1996 there were three people not voting UK the unanimous number one. It turned out that there were a few lazy coaches who filled out there ballots with just “Kent” which meant that unranked Kent State received three first-place votes. Haha
