About Scott Anderson

I love covering the Kentucky Wildcats and even though I can't cheer on the outside when I go to games now, I am definitely cheering on the inside. You can follow me at @SAndersonNOB on twitter.

    My question is how does Louisville only fall to five when they lost to Duke on a neutral floor. They should have at least fallen to seventh as Kentucky fell five spots to eighth when we lost to the same team on a neutral floor (both games were equally close). I know rankings do not matter this time of the year (they should not even be determined until conference play), but it’s still annoying to see. Despite this, I hate to say it, but Duke did earn the #2 seed (although they will be exposed later in the season because they have probably hit their ceiling already).
