  1. Can you please start tweeting out your rankings on Sunday nights like Seth Davis does? That way we can hold you instantly accountable for your selections. You’ve been bestowed a great power that requires transparency and integrity.

  2. Rankings don’t really matter. Kind of fun to look at and debate on the surface. College basketball changes so dramatically week to week, it is hard to really tell. Plus, who has time to watch and follow all of these teams?

  3. Right, that’s why I’m debating! So what’s your answer? Curious to know why Dustin and others voted the way they did. IU had one bad stretch in the 2nd half, but was close in the first. I was at the UConn game, and they did great, even with Vonleh in foul trouble from early on.
