The latest Associated Press poll for 11/18/2013 is out, and Kentucky is no longer #1.
The new AP poll is hot off the presses. There are quite a number of changes, as there often are in college basketball early in the season. Without further ado, here is your poll. This thing is sortable by clicking on the heading. My comments follow below.
Wisconsin takes a big eight spot jump up the rankings on the strength of the victory over Florida.
The Michigan Wolverines took the second biggest hit after losing to the Iowa St. Hawkeyes at Iowa St. What's funny is that Ken Pomeroy had that upset picked. This was a case where the Hawkeyes were not given near enough respect by the AP voters. You see this a lot in the lower levels of the poll, not so much in the upper ones. But Michigan's stock was way overbought at 7, not so much at 14, which feels better to me.
The Ohio St. Buckeyes jumped into the top ten after beating Marquette convincingly. I think Marquette is esteemed too highly this season by many, and OSU not highly enough.
Kentucky dropped from 1 to 4. I think that's about right.
That's what I have to offer. Let's hear your comments.
