    I've never understood how a team can beat another head to head, play similar schedules, have a similar record and the team that lost be ranked higher. What better gauge to rank teams than head to head play? I don't understand how that works.

    The same way that it's hard for a team who is ranked low to climb, it usually takes more than an extremely close game to fall very far.

    If UC wins the next two they will have a trip to Jersey with a chance to crack the top 25. Right now they are about where I expected...

    All I can say is I'm glad I'll be working and not able to root for anyone.

    I'm sure my emotions will be torn Saturday night...

    Take a look at the voters, and you'll understand.

    Has to be a record that Kentucky, Hawaii, and Missouri are all ranked at the same time. Would still like to see UK get Mizzou on the schedule.

    I guess the question now is, Does UK drop out with a loss at Arkansas?
