    Why do UK fans.....

    Why do UK fans care so much about rankings and polls? Seriously. Like why do y’all care so much? I see it on twitter, on Facebook and on here all of the time. The rankings mean absolutely nothing at all and they won’t mean a thing when it comes time to seed the NCAA tournament. So please explain to me why you guys get so frustrated about rankings.

    Thanks in advance.

    I’m a UK fan, and I wholeheartedly concur. And they always worry about where Duke and North Carolina are ranked.

    I don’t understand it all. Maybe it’s just me but this year seems worse than others.

    And while we are at it, why do UK fans care so much about Grayson Allen? I don’t understand that at all either.

    It is not just rankings and polls. UK fans care more about what other people think about their team than any other team in the country.

    And I swear they only care what you think about their team so they can tell you why you’re wrong or how bad of a hater you are. Or why it’s not fair and how bad the conspiracy is surrounding why they are _____________. (Fill in the blank)

    About 98% also think all announcers hate them and are cheering for the other team, including Bilas and Vitale. I find that quite comical, although I could name one or two that might fit the bill.

    KenPom rankings are the only ones that I really care about.

    I don't care about any of that.

    I also don't understand why so many non-UK fans care what UK fans think...

    I'm more of a fan of the Massey Composite ratings. As the year progresses, it aggregates more and more computer rankings (right now there are 49 rankings). It isn't easy to manipulate because all of the rankings are looking at/for different things. The negative is it only updates on Sunday night.

    Right now it has Kentucky at 20, which seems about right. Villanova, Virginia, Purdue, Duke, and Kansas are the top five. North Carolina is 11, Louisville is 28.

    Most UK fans live in or were born in Ky. and remain loyal to one team unlike a lot on here who picked a winner and root for them.

    That's not even close to being true, and I'm not sure what it has to do with the topic at hand....

    That type of stuff gets on my nerves as a UK fan but at the end of the day who cares. It has zero affect on me or my love for UK so
