Basketball Jones… Who’s Number 1?

Was going to write this earlier today, but got tied up in something else. Kansas State beat me to my point tonight in taking Kansas to the cleaners.

Think Kansas is a good team… But not Top 10.

Why? Look at their schedule. They only play 1 Team the whole year in the Top 10.

Calling Kansas #1, or Texas for that matter which lost to both Big East Teams it played seems a bit of a travesty, when you consider many of the other teams – Duke, anyone from the Big East., take on all comers…

Kansas – The only team Kansas has played theoretically in the Top 10 is Texas. They lost.

Texas got beat by both Big East Teams they played, Pitt (5), and UConn(8).

Ohio State got beat by the only Top 10 They faced, a streaking hot Wisconsin Team now ranked at #10.

Meanwhile Pitt has faced 6 Teams ranked in the Top 10 – just as most everyone else in the Big East has…

Ergo the rankings this year suck. Good thing they base selections on RPI for the “Big Dance”.

  1. Sentimentally, I root for the Running Rebels; my son wrote and performs their intro song, “I’m a Rebel.” The season started with so much promise as they knocked off Wisconsin and were ranked as high as 10. But San Diego State and Jimmer have taken over the Mountain West.

  2. Too close to call right now
