    How can Kansas Duke and North Carolina be in the top 10 with one loss apiece? Ridiculous. They may be top ten but they haven't proven it yet. North Carolina beaten by Northern Iowa. Kansas at least lost to a decent team (Mich St.). Duke was beaten by Georgetown. They all play cupcake teams for the next couple of games too. Ivy league schools too.

    They have Purdue 15 and 16. That's maybe a little high for what they've done so far. Sometimes high rankings put curses on the Boilers.

    My mistake. I guess beating Sienna, VCU and Bryant makes them top ten material anyway.

    You're correct. Record and RPI matters most when tournament time arrives.

    It matters because most weeks at #1 is one of the few records UK doesn't hold. (2nd)

    A team that doesn't have a completely different roster every year.

    Completely different?

    Someone tell Tyler Ulis, Marcus Lee, Alex Poythress, and Derek Willis they're off the team. :bigcry:

    BrulesRules would've told John Wall to fuck off if he wanted to go to his school.

    (A school he's too embarrassed to name. :console: )
