Last week in my blog about college basketball I made mention of the fact that it’s pretty much totally useless to have “experts” picking the rankings on college basketball teams. Or any other sport for that matter. But let’s stick to college basketball. The Wake Forest Demon Deacons were offered as my next choice to get the dreaded #1 ranking. Sure enough they got it. And sure enough, they’ve lost it.
The Demon Deacons ran up an impressive 16-0 record before the coronation. That’s certainly indicative of a good team and they deserved the recognition. However, a week has passed, and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons have been de-throned by the Virginia Tech Hokies. Surely now someone will realize that the best team in the country will emerge from the Final Four won’t they? In the meantime, if you’re a college basketball coach, avoid the #1 ranking like the plague.
