CBSSports.com’s college basketball team updated its “Top 25 (and one)” late last night following Kentucky’s loss to LSU, and the Wildcats are notably absent from the new rankings. That’s quite the plunge from sitting at No. 13 prior to last night’s reconfiguration. Gary Parrish explains:
Kentucky lost at LSU late Tuesday and now has four losses to teams ranked outside of the top 50 of the RPI. That’s two more than any other school in the AP poll. So if somebody asks why the Wildcats are no longer in the Top 25 (and one), reference that statistic.
Too many bad losses.
Not enough notable victories.
That’s a rough combination for the preseason No. 1.
From preseason No. 1 to nowhere to be found in CBSSports.com’s Top 26… what a beautiful mess we’re in.
