We're No. 2-ish!

This was a bad week for top ranked basketball teams with teams 1-4, including Kansas, losing to unranked teams. So, understandably, Duke jumped from #5 to #1 and the losers got bumped. Kansas is #2 in the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll and #3 in the AP poll. Texas especially took it hard, dropping from second to fifth.

Unfortunately, all of the top teams this year have serious flaws compared to championship teams of the past. The watchword this year seems to be "parity." And that means that March Madness office pools around the nation will be won by the secretary who doesn't watch sports and picked her teams based on their uniform colors and whether she liked their mascots.
