Kenpom also thinks Pitt is a top 10 team. Sorry, but I watch a lot of college basketball and have seen most of top 20 teams play multiple times already this season. I would much rather see UM face KU in the NCAA tourney than UL, IU, UF or Duke. And you explained why yourself ... KU is down slightly talent-wise this year. Self should get a lot of credit for how well he has them playing, but they have a relatively easy schedule and have nearly lost several games that should not even have been close (e.g. Texas). Kenpom is a computer algorithm that tries to predict future performance based on certain variables. It is far from infallible and IMO Kansas is not one of the top 5-6 teams in the country whether Kenpom has them ranked that highly or not.
AP poll is out. We're back to #2.

Very nice. @ Miami could be a very difficult game for Duke. I don't see us losing any of our next three, we could very well move up to #1 in the next poll.
Yeah, I think if we just keep winning we will jump Duke eventually due to the toughness of the B1G.
KU plays @KSU this week. Go Cats!
Using the outlier to discredit Ken Pom doesn't make sense. 7 of Ken Pom's top 10 teams are also in the AP's newest top 10. And 2 of Ken Pom's top 10 teams (Ohio and Minnesota) are in the AP's top 15.
And while it's not infallible, it is used for a reason - because it has consistently (outside of 2011) done a great job of predicting Final Four teams.
But I understand what you're saying. Kansas has definitely escaped some losses - for instance Iowa State at home and Texas on the road.
I'm actually hoping that KU goes back to its days of choking early in the NCAAT under Bill Self.

Duke down 42-19 against Miami at half... Michigan to number 1?
If we win our next 2 games (Purdue at home and Illinois on the road) then yes Michigan should be the new #1.
Then if we lose @Indiana, it'll be ridiculous how many consecutive weeks the #1 went down.
FIrst Blue needs to smoke Purdue tonight.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!

Looking good early
GR3"s dunk will be on sportscenter top ten. Ouch the rim still hurting !
I feel like he has at least one of those every game.
I think it's clear we need to start recruiting real big men. Im tired of Morgan and Horford being pushed around
Anyone else watching the UCLA-Zona game? Bill Walton is making my ears bleed.
I was surprised at Morgan's incompetence tonight.
In the second half, we went to him on 3 straight possessions and he missed all 3 times. (It seemed to me that the coaching staff instructed our players to isolate him on the block to see if we could get him going when the game was still back-and-forth.)
But I'm excited about Mark Donnal (2013 commit) who I think will be an excellent PF at the college level. Skilled player that is a stretch 4 but also does well in the post. Donnal should be an excellent complement to McGary.
And I'm even more excited about Ricky Doyle in the 2014 class. He is what I wish Morgan would become.
How much interest does Doyle have in us? If you want him Frank, I'd take him too. I trust your evaluating skills. Haha
Not familiar with Doyle
GR3 dunk #3 on Sportscenter tonight
Thanks for the vote of confidence!
But I really don't know where our coaches stand with Doyle.
UMHoops.com mentioned that our coaches are interested in him and that he's interested in us (partly because many of his family members are Michigan fans).
Florida seems to be showing interest in him especially after he attended one of Donovan's summer camps.
Sircharles, here's a video of Doyle.
Rick Doyle is a 6'9 rising junior for Bishop Verot High School. He is starting to garner interest from the nation's top schools
I believe things have slowed down with Doyle's recruitment because of a stress fracture in his foot. He hasn't played since mid December.
Also, Doyle wasn't planning on getting real serious with the process until after his basketball season ends. That is when he could start taking visits and Coach B doesn't offer unless a kid visits.
This is just something i read and i don't know how accurate it is but I heard Notre Dame could be tough to beat for Doyle if they want him.
