I blame this all on Dick and hope a vital organ gets shoved up his ass. And yes, that made no sense!

Does Dick Vitale make these rankings?

Its like they intentionally started us off at the bottom. They wouldn't dare put us over someone like Ohio State who is 6-2.

I mean, their losses are to Xavier and UF. Our best win is Penn, right? The other wins are pretty much cupcakes.

Dang. Was hoping to remain unranked.

Alabama beat Gonzaga and is still ranked lower than them and have the better record. Can someone make this make sense to me.

And the run to the top of the charts begins.

The best thing about basketball is that it gets settled on the court. We can be unranked at 32-0 and it still won’t matter

It matters when seeding. Seeding helps in the long run…

5 total teams are undefeated, and we’re one of em. We’re ranked 25 and both #5 and #6 have 2 losses? CBB rankings are hilarious.

We’re one of 7 undefeated teams that are ranked and Minnesota, Wyoming and Colorado St are all undefeated and unranked

Must’ve been painful for them to squeeze LSU in there at 25.

7 SEC teams in Top 25. Not bad for a football league.

Rankings are worthless in basketball. The only thing that matters is getting an invite to the tourney.

100% this.

Yes right lol proof it's not worthless, see LSU fans crying about not being ranked!

The basketball community does not like upstarts like Wade breaking into their clique. Plenty of time for things to sort themselves out.
Reply2 months
Upstarts? Wade has been coaching twice as long as Musselman in college and they've been in the Top 25 all year long so I don't understand what you're saying.

I think he means the talking heads do not like Wade, so those who vote will ding us whenever they can.

I'd rather the AP continue to disrespect the team.

Lol. LSU will be 15-0 and be #24.
Reply2 months
Lol, yep. And they could finish the season with 30 wins and be a 6 seed.
