Can anyone explain how San Diego, Duke, and BYU are in the Top 10? Are the AP/Coaches scared to put 6-7 big east teams in the top 10? These teams have no business being ranked where they are but one can't just ignore the ranking because they are key for NCAA seeding. (looking at the overall top 25 is even worse)
San Diego had one ranked team win which was only 3 points at the buzzer against a now unranked Gonzaga. Top 10?
BYU's only key win is San Diego State and they were taken to double OT by South FL. Top 10?
Duke has two ranked wins against fading KSU and MSU. Then they have a loss to FSU and get blown out by an unranked St Johns. How can you get blown out and still be ranked top 10?
This was an email from a friend...Just to elaborate on our conversation of how ridiculous some of the rankings were for schools like #6 SDSU, #8 BYU, and #17 Utah St. The Idaho Spudlickers just handily beat Utah St. #17, in Moscow, Idaho. Idaho has an RPI ranking of #181. ESPN announcers showed on the screen, Utah St.'s losses were to Georgetown & BYU, and their total Quality Wins were "NONE" with their Best Win coming against Long Beach State who has an RPI of #117.
Do you think Utah St. might slip in the rankings to #19? What an absolute joke. The brackets become FUBAR with these teams that are taking up valuable real estate at the top of the rankings.
