Misery truly loves company. The new AP Top 25 is out and for the first time since December 18, 1961, Kentucky, Kansas, Duke, North Carolina, and UCLA are not ranked. Kansas fell from the rankings following its loss to West Virginia on Saturday, snapping a record streak of 231 consecutive weeks (12 years) in the AP Poll.

Even further…

Here’s who is in the AP Poll, if you care.

    But since Cal has been here we’ve put more guys in the NBA and had more Lottery Picks. And we are always told that’s the only thing that matters. For the Kids!!
