They've lost to two teams ranked in the top 10 before the season started so it doesn't hurt them that much.

Had they lost to East Carolina for example as well as losing to Kansas and Arizona they would be ranked outside the top 10.

I think top 25 is fine but there are teams behind them who I would rank higher, Florida for one as they have losses against #4 Wisconsin and #12 UCONN but they have a win over Kansas on the record which is better than Duke's win over Michigan.

Rankings at this stage are always a bit shifty. I'm a Ohio State fan and i think being #2 a bit much we have had an easy schedule this far we have only really faced a test in a weak Marquette.

Gosh darn it, got to the second half of the Gators game and realise there's 20 minutes left and this is the one time I forget to record the next program.

Looks like an epic game from the score .

March Madness is one of the highlights of the year for me, I can class myself as a Duke Hater even with Jabari Parker my fav to be No.1 pick in the next draft. I like to support UNLV but that means I don't get to see them on TV very much but I like to watch all the games I can.

Buckeyes move to 11-0 on the Season with a win over Delaware.

North Carolina are suffering from Bipolar disorder beat ranked teams lose to unranked teams.

Quite enjoyed Duke/UCLA game. Don't think I've watched a game I didn't enjoy this season actually it's been a good start.
