Power 16 Revisited

Ok as Ginger pointed out last week KU moved to the top of the ESPN power 16. I admit that this was questionable and obviously does not matter for anything. However this week comes out and KU beats MU (which as Hippo so finely put is not a bad team) at Paige and then stomps ISU. Memphis beats a now 1-3 C-USA team and jumps ahead. There really is no rhyme or reason to this thing. They ended up beating tulsa by 15 but it was a closer game than that and their total output was 56 points. Better jump em above the hawks! It is like I am taking crazy pills sometimes. Oh well it really doesn't matter and I try not to let this distract me but the logic is a bit baffling. Maybe digger had something to do with it. At least be consistently wrong. BTW it is great to see Baylor in there. Honestly KU in an Orange Bowl and Baylor Ranked. What was the over/under on that?





PS- Also wonder what the over/under of nadal getting beat in straight sets today was? Somebody made bank!

I thought that was weird too, because they even title it "Power 16: Memphis squeaks by Kansas" but if you look at it they're actually an even tie, each being 1 on 6 ballots and 2 on the other 6. But still weird that anyone who didn't think Memphis was better last week could find a way to think so this time.

yeah i saw that as i posted it as well same total and first votes as well. I suspect a digger lack of fact checking is to blame.

Memphis will get get their shit handed to them by a weak C-USA team. Happens every year.
