Generic Confusion

News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

Who's #1?

Although I'd like to see UNC be ranked #1, I think it's fair for Illinois to retain its #1 ranking despite its recent loss. Too often, a losing team is reflexively dropped a position or two. I dislike how the polls often work, where an early loss is given less weight, like a weighted average with more credibility for recent experience. It isn't as much a problem in basketball as it is in football, with the smaller number of games. If you're going to be 10-1 in NCAA football, you're in much better position if you lose one of your first two games than if you lose later in the season.
