Kentucky Overrated? Kansas a fluke? Disgusted Top 25.

Well folks, College Basketball is finally here. With most teams already 2-4 games into there season, we have already expieranced some of the greats fall. Grant the best of the best have competed in tournaments with other top teams. But as we did in our pre-season, there have been some changes in our first week thoughts.

Teams that have shown a bit of overrated?
#1 Kansas- This team is the number 1 team in the nation, but come on now. You let Hofstra come in and score 65 points in the phog and letting up there best player score 35 on you. Than you score only 57 points to Memphis, a team who lost four out of five starters on there sweet sixteen team last season and yet almost got shocked with letting up 55, to win by just two? Weak.

#4 Kentrucky- Wall this, Wall that, Wall is all. Is Kentucky really a top 5 team in the nation? If so, exactly how? Kentucky barely slips by Miami (Ohio) by who had a 18 point halftime lead on the cats who ended up winning off a John Wall backboard prayer by 2. Than playing at home, trailed a Sam Houston State team by 5 at the break and ended up pulling away to just win by 10. This team will have trouble in the SEC this season!

# 17 Oklahoma- The sooners arent for real. How are theses guys even ranked? Reminds me of Notre Dame, Doesnt matter who you lose or what you done the season before you get all the love. The sooners are 2-1 with a 11 point win over Louisiana Monroe after trailing by 3 at the break. Than getting thumped by a lousy VCU team by 13. You lose Blake Griffin, the man who done most of your scoring last season. You should not be ranked untill you can show who can step up, they obviously havnt done that yet.

Underrated teams we have seen so far?
Syracuse- Was they just messing with our heads when the media picked this team 6th in the Big East? No way! This team killed #13 California by 22 and the #4 team in the country North Carolina by 16. This team is on fire! Wouldnt be suprised one bit if this team was in the top 10-15 next week. Big East just may have seen the best team in the league this week.

Gonzaga- Here is a team who is 2-1. However there 2 wins have came by blowout wins and there only loss was to #2 Michigan State by 4, who actually had a lead by eight late in the game.
