What did we learn last night about college basketball? The sport is having a bad year. Of course you guys love watching Duke lose by 27, but that’s not good for the sport. What you need is a semi-dominant team that holds the #1 spot for 7 weeks or so and then goes on the road to get beat.
Louisville tried…and failed. Duke had the #1 spot for four weeks…and lost. Indiana tried for a few weeks, lost and now are #7. Michigan will be your new #1, if they don’t lose this week, it’ll be the first time the Wolverines have been in that spot in 20 years, 1 month & 22 days (via @darrenrovell)
Meanwhile, in NFL news, ESPN nailed this one.
