Updated Top 25 (and one)

On Saturday, in my Big 12 Reset, I called Kansas the nation's best three-loss team.

So you know what the Jayhawks are now, don't you?

The nation's best four-loss team!

And to those wondering how a four-loss team could be ranked 16th in the Top 25 (and one), well, the thing you need to understand is that all schedules aren't equal (or even similar), and that none of KU's losses to date are "bad" losses even if losing to San Diego State at Allen Fieldhouse on Sunday was disappointing. Perhaps you don't realize it, but the following is true: All of KU's losses are to schools currently ranked in the top 11 of the Top 25 (and one) -- specifically No. 5 Villanova, No. 8 Florida, No. 10 Colorado and No. 11 SDSU, and two of those losses came in true road games. On the positive side, Kansas owns wins over Duke (No. 16 in KenPom), Georgetown (No. 34 in KenPom) and New Mexico (No. 49 in KenPom), and the Jayhawks still have an offense and defense that both rate in the top 20 nationally.

So, no, that 9-4 record doesn't look good on the surface.

I acknowledge that.

But KU's resume is still, undeniably, a top-20 resume.

Anyway ...
