I typically don't do these, but with my Overrated! entry, and someone suggesting I do one I had the thought in my head. With time to kill, and it being a slow day for quality topics on the message board I figured I'd spend it wisely and throw one of these out there... Here it is...

  1. Memphis
  2. Kansas
  3. UNC
  4. UCLA
  5. Washington State
  6. Duke
  7. Tennessee
  8. Michigan State
  9. Pitt
  10. Georgetown
  11. Wisconsin
  12. Arizona
  13. Texas
  14. Oregon
  15. Mississippi
  16. Texas A & M
  17. Stanford
  18. Indiana
  19. Marquette
  20. St. Mary's
  21. West Virginia
  22. Vanderbilt
  23. Dayton

#1 SOS does not dictate being 12th.  It's what you do with that SOS, and Arizona has struggled. 

And neither does losing to virginia and oregon @home, along with ASU and Stanford on the road. 

If the loss of one player leads to losing to teams of this caliber, then that says something about the team as a whole. 

Credibility... hmmm... this coming from someone who says that Indiana's 11 game winning streak is worth something.
It does mean something, it means they haven't lost in their past 11 games.  I never said it proves them to be a top10 team.  However, several of those victories came with key players like Gordon, Bassett, Ratliff and Crawford not playing.

Arizona has the #1 SOS, prior to Jerryd Bayless going down with an injury their worst losts of the year was only by 4 points. They beat the pants off of Texas A&M, and their smaller conference opponents are teams that are at the top of their conferences.  Their worst loss of the season came against Memphis which was still only 14 points. Their win-loss record doesn't reflect that of the #12 team in the nation, I agree, but if Bayless hadn't gone down with injury they wouldn't have lost two of those games.

Credibility... hmmm... this coming from someone who says that Indiana's 11 game winning streak is worth something.

So wait a second, IU is a poser because they haven't beaten any good teams (according to you), but Arizona is the 12th best team? 

No offense, but you just lost any credibility.

Vikings3214: Yeah, I can see 'em. There is a lag time on cbssports every now and then. I was having the same problem earlier in the game, as long as you hit "submit" or "post" it went through. Occassionally it just takes an extra hour to show up, but it still has the original posting time. It's strange and ridiculous, but yeah, I got it on there.

Thanks for including my 'Cats in your Top 25.

Naterb, can you see my posts on the rankings because I cant. The only change is IU is higher and Butler is in there rather than Arkansas.
Oh yea and Oregon is number 1
