“Number one. It (the new number two ranking) just doesn’t follow the precedent, really.”

“I don’t like being number one. Number two or number three is ideal. With number one it’s too big of a target.”

Second the second.

Never made sense to have OSU drop below us.

Balls in our court now. Thank you K-State.

Agreed, Autie. When we've won the Big Dance we've gone in at #5. We tend to get a case of "bighead"when we start off at #1. Rock Chalk!!

"When we've won the Big Dance we've gone in at #5"

Except in 1988, when we were a 6 seed and 2008 when we were a 1 seed. But that's only the last two times KU won the national championship.

I meant in the polls, not the seed.

Fortunately, the national championship is settled on the court, not by lawyers.

I've got a good friend who summed it up great. "It's all pre-season until the NCAA tournament."

Who cares about ranking - it's only numbers.

That guy in the last photo sure is hot!

Ok, if you insist. Nine and a half, but only because I don't know anything about his personality.

Second until OSU proves it isn't as good as we are. As it stands now, we're just not THAT good.

Just doesn't matter. Always nice to be considered so highly, though "the love" seems fairly non-existent for a team that's never been out of the top 5 all year. All things considered, forget number one overall since only one has won the tourney in the last 16 years. But from where I'm sitting, I'm looking forward to the Final Four. This is one of the best overall teams I've ever seen, I really think we have a fantastic chance.
