Here's Wednesday's Dear Gary ...

Dear Gary: What is your PROBLEM? You are doing it again. I told you last year, you would not listen but, you had them ranked what 7th at end of season?SODUMMY?????DAVIDSON WILDCATS and STEPHEN CURRY??not in your top 26man u r STUPID

-- AW

I think it's hilarious that somebody who doesn't know how to A) properly space, B) properly punctuate or C) properly spell is calling me stupid (and using all capital letters to do it). But I'm not interested in spending too much time on your shortcomings, AW, because the core of your email -- that I am stupid for not ranking Davidson, if I interpreted that correctly -- is 100 percent accurate.

I should've learned my lesson about doubting Stephen Curry.

I know that now.

Which is why I've explained in multiple blogs (like here and here) that Davidson will be included when I update the Top 25 (and one) before the season begins. Looking at it now, I would guess that Arizona will drop out (because of the loss of Brandon Jennings) and Davidson will move in, though I'm confident there will be additional changes, too. So till then, hold tight. And in the meantime, AW, it wouldn't hurt if you worked on your spacing, punctuation and spelling, and just relaxed a bit in general.

Dear Gary (on Davidson)

I'll  try to be polite here - How can you possibly root for U of Arizona ? Must be on the board of trustees or "Coach O's" latest stepson.

Davidson is the reason many casual fans even cared about  the tournament last season. They return a few starters including Curry so they  should be ranked I guess, but who cares about preseason polls. Davidson is a fresh face in this sport and they will take on Arizona anytime and anyplace. Arizona program needs an overhaul.  Jerk of a coach, selfish brand of basketball, and making a mockery of the student-athlete concept.  Of course they're not alone but let's just say they're a black eye for college basketball.

Dear Gary (on Davidson)


To put Davidson into your top 25 and drop Arizona would be a bigger mistake than leaving Davidson out all together. Arizona lost Jennings sure, but they(as always) will do well and make the tournament again. Coach O will get them running and gunning again this year. Nic Wise will find Chase Budinger on the wing, or get the ball into Jordan Hill for numerous assists this year. Arizona made it tough on itself last year. This year will be different. We'll take on Davidson anywhere, anytime. That's the way Lute has always scheduled his teams. Play tough games in November and December, you'll be ready for March. I can't wait for the Madness to begin.
