Not that I expect the writers in the various AP polls to know exactly what they’re doing, but I do expect a Wee-Man portion of knowledge and intellect to be on display. That’s why it’s with much shock and chagrin that I write despite being #1 in both the AP and coaches’ poll in college hoops, UCLA was not voted #1 by a certain member of the press.
John Kaltefleiter of the Macon Telegraph in Georgia voted North Carolina first and UCLA second. I’m wondering why more members of the press haven’t seen it his way. I mean come on, why shouldn’t an undefeated team from a major conference, with an average margin of victory larger than Rosie O’Donnell’s waist line be ranked 1st? I guess beating 4 top 20 teams and winning the Maui Invitational isn’t good enough. Ahah! I know, maybe UCLA needs to lose to Gonzaga first and then get some respect! Gimme a break. Well, at least this clown did something right – he made it into this entry.
