apparently this is serious...or it refers to having child molesters on the staff...use to be that you actually had to accomplish something before you made a t-shirt to celebrate. I'd be embarrassed if UCONN made one for being #1 on December 12th...but I guess if the odds are you'll go out the first weekend of the tournement you might as well take it while you can get it.
I have only seen them play one game but they looked really good- well rounded- good size in the paint and played all 40 minutes. I was impressed.I'm not sure how it's justified that UConn lost a spot in the ESPN poll after beating a ranked team. I mean, I get it Missouri is good - but I don't think they're good enough to leapfrog both UConn and Xavier!!!
christmas is probably our 9th or 10th best player right now. jardine is our 3rd best guard so far. before boatright came back lamb and napier were playing 38 minutes a game.Very bizarre scoring from Syracuse. There is no reliability.
Some games Jardine and Christmas with zero points. Imagine Lamb or Napier with zip?

I've seen them play several times on TV and yeah...they look great! But this is such an atypical move for pollsters. This really meant that Mizzou made a pretty big jump over both UConn and Xavier. UConn beat #24 Harvard. Xavier beat Butler and Cincinnati. Mizzou beat Villanova and Navy. If you ask me - these schools are all comparable with the exception of UConn having the toughest opponent by far.
I think Mizzou does deserve a top 10 ranking. They're a great team. I think Xavier is even better. I think they have played very very well in tough situations. And in some respects, I don't think UConn is as good as either of these teams yet but certainly has the capacity to be #1 eventually.
It just was a very odd move in my opinion. Losing a spot after beating a ranked team (and not losing another game) is probably a move in the polls very infrequently observed.
