    Fun seeing both UK and UL in the top 5. It should be a great season for basketball fans in Kentucky.

    Louisville has a long way to go to earn that ranking, IMO.

    Apparently UofL lost by 11 to Ohio State in a scrimmage sometime this weekend. UofL was down 1 or 2 key guys from what I read but didn’t elaborate on who the guys were.

    To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible

    Malik Williams (Jr), who will likely be the starting Center, David Johsnon (Fr.) are both still in boots I believe. Williams would have made an impact, not so sure about Johnson.

    I thought Johnson had a bad shoulder?

    You're right. I had the image of Williams on his scooter in my mind and for some reason imagined Johnson too.

    That’s the worst over ranking a Ky basketball team has had in probably 20 years.

    It's not even the worst over ranking in the Cal era.

    Preseason rankings in college basketball are meaningless. Just provide something to talk about. Thankfully, unlike football, there is tournament the top 25 teams will play in to get a true champion. Having said that, I think UL and UK are for sure top 10 teams but not top 5 until can see them play some games.

    I'd put the Cards 11-15.
