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”.
1st Official BTx3 Ranking?
2. San Diego State
3. Ohio State
4. Notre Dame
13. North Carolina
18. St. Mary’s
19. George Mason
20. West Virginia
22. Colorado State
And no, I don’t watch NBA.

The Princess and the Frog’ ascends to No. 1
"The Princess and the Frog" Featuring Disney's First Black Princess
The Princess and the Frog
had no trouble snatching the crown at theaters this weekend, coasting to the top spot at the box office as family films flexed their holiday muscle.
The Disney fairy tale earned $25 million, according to studio estimates from Nielsen EDI, almost $10 million more than the closest competitor.
The film, a twist on a Brothers Grimm tale about a woman turned into a frog after a kiss, enjoyed the highest debut for an animated movie released in December. It supplanted Beavis and Butt-head Do America, which opened to $20 million in 1996.
Like that film, Frog drew a surprising number of unaccompanied adults. Nearly one in five moviegoers came to the theater without children, according to Disney exit polling.
“That’s the number that’s sweetest,” Disney’s Chuck Viane says. “We knew families were going to come. But we didn’t know about the adults without kids. That was going to depend on reviews.”
About 83% of the nation’s critics recommended the movie, according to RottenTomatoes.com.
“You can do your movie in 2-D, 3-D,” Viane says. “But it’s not going to save you without a good story. Especially when you’re talking about kids and family films. They depend on word of mouth.”
It would appear a number of grown up “girls” didn’t want to miss the debut of the new Princess, either.
