The first batch of rankings are out.

Good Monday Morning. It’s always a good week after a win over Louisville on the gridiron.

After a wild week of college basketball, the Kentucky Wildcats could see themselves move up, or down honestly, in the newest edition of the AP Top-25.

North Carolina saw themselves drop two games in the PK85. Purdue made a national statement by destroying both Gonzaga and Duke, and Houston is almost certainly going to see themselves reach No. 1 in the rankings for the first time since, when? The mid-80s?

I’d expect Kentucky to stay put at No. 15, possibly move up one or two spots.

Now the 2 losses out of the gate don’t seem as bad.
