    Who’s that only seven-loss team that’s ranked higher than others? They must have won a bunch in a row or have lost to some top-notch teams…

      Lol, yeah UNC being ranked is a joke. And duke is still in the top 10 after losing to the worst team in the Big East! Also, we are way ahead of WVU in the computers and beat them at their place and they are ahead of us. Ludicrous. Cincinnati is vastly overrated, too. They would be a middle of the road team in the SEC. Same with Gonzaga and St Mary’s. Georgia beat St Mary’s. Florida beat Gonzaga and Cincinnati. Tennessee beat Purdue. Arkansas and Bama easily hammered overrated Oklahoma. SEC is for real.

      Who would you rank ahead of us? I’m guessing about 15 fan bases are saying “we don’t deserve to be ranked at all”, but somebody has too.
