It will be interesting to see the new rankings today.

Kansas got spanked tonight. This is NOT the season to be ranked.

I hope my Heels do what they need to do this week.

KU is playing very uninspired ball, ever since the triple OT win against Oklahoma. Brutal road tests, as OkState nearly defeated OU last week, and OU lost at Iowa State. I agree with you on the rankings, it only seems to place an even bigger target on your back. This could be one of those seasons where the National Champions have 8-9 losses on the season.

I have yet to see ANY team (and I'm biased) that screams NATIONAL CHAMPION to me.

I hope UNC is that team come March but not one team has played consistently thus far. There are several teams with the talent but all of them are having issues.

I read a headline that hinted that Coach K was complaining that Duke wasn't getting officials calls to go their way. I admit I didn't read the article, but I had to laugh. Duke not getting calls?!

I'll readily admit Kansas has been playing poorly and deserves to lose those games. Every team loses a call here and there, officials are human and will make mistakes, but that should never be an excuse.

The REALLY ironic thing about that is that he used to publicly complain about the double standard in the ACC and how Dean Smith's teams ALWAYS got the calls.



No one is playing like a champion right now. UNC is winning but Marcus Paige has been MIA three games in a row. That ain't going to cut it.

Will Duke disappear from the Top 20 rankings for the first time in ??? years?

The one thing I really like about college basketball; there's a tournament at the end, and almost NO ONE remembers who was ranked No.1 going into the tournament, but remembers who WON the tournament as the champion.

They should drop out of it. Their last losing season was 1995. That's the year K sat out and his assistant coach (Gaudet) took the fall. They did go 8-8 in the ACC in 2007.

UK looked pretty good last night.


Just remember, it could always be worse.

You could be a Duke fan.

Ha ha. There is truly a historical connection between the 3 schools we support. It's almost like family, and the respect seems to be genuine between the respective coaches, players and even the fanbase. Shades of Blue brotherhood. I like it!
