Rankings don’t mean shit, just ask preseason untangled Michigan who is in the CFP

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

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.

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.

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.

The basketball community does not like upstarts like Wade breaking into their clique. Plenty of time for things to sort themselves out.

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.

FINALLY.

Lol. LSU will be 15-0 and be #24.

Lol, yep. And they could finish the season with 30 wins and be a 6 seed.
