    Doesn't mean a whole lot, but I'll take it...not bad for a four seed coming into the tourny.

    Didn't Arizona beat Duke in the tournament?

    And who is the clown who voted Ohio St #1?

    Louisville still winds up in the top 25. I think this poll is AWESOME.

    None of it makes sense. Butler goes from unranked to #2(should be #5 at best...I say #7), VCU with 12 losses is #6 though? Based on voting VCU should be at worst #4, correct? How can the voting be half right? Arizona beats Duke but is 2 spots behind Duke after giving the National Champs a better game than the #2 team did? North Carolina makes it farther than Duke but is behind Duke? Duke who lost 5 games all year is behind 12 loss VCU despite Duke being ranked higher than teams that made it farther than Duke in the tourney? Ohio State gets a first-place vote? Florida loses to the #2 team in the nation(Butler) in the Elite 8 but is ranked 10th? Should I go on? There is no rhyme or reason to this Final Poll. It looks like the coaches threw some votes down without any thought and refocused on their offseasons. Garbage. In my opinion.

    Why even do this final poll- what is the point? What about the person that gave Ohio State a first place vote? What is the reasoning behind not giving the National Champion the first place vote? I am not sure the final poll does anything except create controversy.

    Yes. They don't have to put their name on the final poll of the year...

    I really don't think it's that crazy. I mean they clearly base it off the tournament more so than anything else.

    The person who voted for Ohio State is obviously a Sullinger fan...
