Men's College Basketball Rankings

Posted by admin on Tuesday, February 7, 2012

We are just one month away from the post-season, so now is a great time to check the current rankings. That way, when March Madness starts, you don't have to pretend to know who's good and who's not.

Rankings current as of 2/6/12
AP Top 25 

  1. Kentucky (23-1)
  2. Syracuse (23-1)
  3. Ohio State (20-3)
  4. Missouri (21-2)
  5. North Carolina (20-3)
  6. Baylor (21-2)
  7. Kansas (18-5)
  8. Florida (19-4)
  9. Murray State (23-0)
  10. Duke (19-4)
  11. Michigan State  (18-5)
  12. Georgetown (18-4)
  13. San Diego State (20-3)
  14. UNLV (21-4)
  15. Florida State (16-6)
  16. Saint Mary's (22-2)
  17. Creighton (21-3)
  18. Marquette (19-5)
  19. Virginia (18-4)
  20. Mississippi State (18-5)
  21. Wisconsin (18-6)
  22. Michigan (17-7)
  23. Indiana (18-6)
  24. Louisville (18-5)
  25. Harvard (20-2)
So there you have it, the top 25 teams right now, all of them should be making an appearance in March Madness as well.
There are a few things to keep in mind, as well as a couple big games with even bigger implications.
  • Kentucky plays Florida tonight! It will be Kentucky's first ranked opponent in the past two months!
  • Baylor has the toughest schedule this week; Hosting Kansas on Wednesday and then an away game in Missouri on Saturday.
  • There is only one undefeated team in the top 25 (Murray State), much thanks to their wimpy schedule.
  •  Harvard rounds out the poll at No. 25, beating out unranked Gonzaga, Iowa State, Southern Mississippi and Notre Dame. Come tournament time, the "smart money" isn't going to pick Harvard over the aforementioned teams.
Who are you rooting for this season? Is your team ranked? Do you even think these rankings matter? Anyone not listed you think will make a run in March? Let me know!

In the Donald E. Westlake novel Drowned Hopes , character Tom Jimson says Oklahoma remained dry following the repeal of Prohibition and was so feisty about it that officials arrested a bartender serving drinks on a through train. In revenge, the passenger railroads pulled their trains out of Oklahoma, with the result that old railroad towns became ghost townseven Amtrak didn't provide service in the state. Is there anything to this? Anthony
Lest you think this subject has no continuing relevance, the Amtrak liquor cases came up not too long ago in a dispute between the state of New Mexico and US Airways. In 2006, a drunken passenger got off a US Airways flight from Phoenix to Albuquerque and subsequently crashed while driving the wrong way on the highway, killing himself and five others. After obtaining a temporary [url=http://www.kevinbrick.com]christian louboutin outlet[/url] license, US Airways was cited again by New Mexico for serving another intoxicated customer. The airline sued, claiming it should be exempt from state and local liquor laws, but a federal court found for the state, citing among other things the Amtrak decisions regarding Kansas and Oklahoma.
Did Amtrak yank its Oklahoma service out of spite? The facts: For economic reasons, passenger rail service contracted sharply in Oklahoma during the 1960s, just as it did in the rest of the country. When Amtrak took over in 1971, there was just one train left, the Santa Fe Texas Chief. Despite losing the liquor case in 1974, Amtrak continued operating this run, renamed the Lone Star, until 1979, when it and several other runs elsewhere were dropped following [url=http://www.kevinbrick.com]christian louboutin shoes[/url] budget cuts. Some wrangling preceded this decision, but there's no sign it turned on liquor sales, and in any case Amtrak continued to operate in Kansas, where presumably the same grudge would have applied.
Oklahoma, admitted to the union in 1907, long prided itself on being a bonedry state. I came across a 1918 court case in which the Santa Fe railroad, fearing the wrath of state officials, refused to accept a shipment of communion wine to a Catholic priest in Guthrie, Okla. (The courts ultimately ruled such shipments were allowed.) As you say, Oklahoma was one of the few states that continued to outlaw liquor sales after the end of Prohibitiona booze ban wasn't dropped from the state's constitution until 1959.
Westlake exaggeratesalways the way with novelists. But Oklahoma and its idiosyncratic liquor laws give the imaginatively inclined a lot to work with. There's a kernel of truth to the tale.
The raid didn't come completely out of the blue. Some time earlier a newspaper reporter, no doubt smelling a story, had informed the Oklahoma Alcoholic Beverage Control Board that the newly formed Amtrak was selling liquor on its trains while they were en route through Oklahoma. When the board raised the subject with Amtrak, the railroad agency made it clear it had no intention of complying with the law.
As recounted in Drowned Hopes, the arrest of the railroad bartender happened in the 1950s; though I found no record of any such event during that decade, I did turn up one from the '70s. On July 18, 1972, Amtrak's Texas Chief train was boarded by state and local police when it pulled into Oklahoma City.
Resolving to force the issue, Oklahoma officials apparently called up their counterparts in Kansas, a state with similarly tough liquor laws. On the same day as the Oklahoma City arrest, agents of the Kansas attorney general boarded a train in Newton, Kansas, and arrested the conductor, a lounge car attendant, and a dining car waiter for serving booze.
There were three Oklahoma passenger trains remaining in 1971, not just the Texas Chief; all Santa Fe trains. The San Francisco Chief operated between Chicago and California making Oklahoma stops in Alva, Waynoka, Woodward, and maybe a few other towns. The Kansas City Tulsa Tulsan made stops in Dewey, Bartlesville, Collinsville, and of course Tulsa.
Amtrak sued both states in federal court. The Oklahoma judge ruled in favor of Amtrak, but the Kansas judge ruled against, on the grounds that the federal Prohibition repeal granted the states broad powers to regulate alcohol. The Kansas decision was affirmed by the Supreme Court, and the Oklahoma decision was overturned on appeal. Upshot: no booze on trains in Oklahoma or Kansas.
Washington City Paper
The rails are still polished daily by trains between Oklahoma City and Kansas City. The segment between Newton, KS and Oklahoma City only carries freight. However; most of Amtrak system shares its routes with freight trains. Therefore; this should not be an impediment. The real impediment is the death grip the region has on highway transportation. Oklahoma will spend on average $1.5 billion for its transportation resources annually but only $2.85 million is dedicated to passenger rail. Oklahoma priorities are still skewed to 20th Century transportation policies.
For decades leading to the creation of Amtrak, the cash cow for [url=http://www.kevinbrick.com]red bottom shoes[/url] railroads had been freight. high speed networks in Japan and Europe, the US spent all of its limited resources on fuel inefficient interstate highway systems and aviation. Transportation freedom in the 1970 was synonymous with the automobile and jet service. The passenger train was considered pass
Oklahoma and Amtrak are not known for good decision making. It would be another 20 years before Amtrak returned to Oklahoma, and as a state supplemental route. Look at the national Amtrak map. A 24 hour backtrack is required through Fort Worth to reach Chicago from Oklahoma City.
The railroads began screaming about the losses while the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) reluctantly allowed a trickle of discontinuances to be approved. The entire network would have collapsed by 1975 if Congress had not taken action. Further, this action was intended as an orderly shutdown of all the nation passenger rail routes. However; Watergate and the 1973 Arab Oil Embargo halted this retreat.
Nowhere was this more true than in Oklahoma. Amtrak apparently asked US Senator from Oklahoma Henry Bellmon if Oklahoma wanted to keep its remaining Amtrak route, then the Lone Star. The answer was something akin to followed by a The Carter Administration was demanding Amtrak cuts. The popular Lone Star, on target for 240,000 passengers in 1979, died a quiet political death.
Amtrak discontinued many routes on May 1, 1971, its first day of operation. What is the real story? In 1967 the US Postal service discontinued most mail contracts with the railroads. Marginal routes became soaked in red ink as mail sorting in route ceased.

I not afraid of a lot of effort if the results are worth it. The shrimp were pretty good, and the sauce alone was [url=http://www.lancelsacpascherx.com]Sac Lancel Pas Cher[/url] awesomebut not together. The peanut sauce completely overpowered the shrimp. I found some sweet chili sauce which I used instead and that was better received. I think this is [url=http://www.hvhypnosis.com]louis vuitton online[/url] the first time I have not been thrilled with an AB recipeI guess different folks have different taste.
I have made the shrimp from this recipe once and the sauce twice. [url=http://www.mskexam.com]louis vuitton outlet store[/url] The shrimp are delicious, but as other reviewers have pointed out, the coconut is extremely timeconsuming to prepare the way he describes [url=http://www.kennedy-rs.com]Christian Louboutin Sale[/url] in the episode. I would recommend throwing it into a food processor, which is what I recall him doing in the coconut cake episode. The sauce is also greatit definitely did not taste or look like plain peanut butter to me. I followed the recipe almost exactly, except I have never used the fish sauce, since I didn want to buy a bottle just for this recipe. I also used lowersodium soy sauce since that what I keep on hand. My biggest problem with the peanut sauce is that [url=http://www.kevinbrick.com]christian louboutin shoes[/url] there is way, way, way too much of it. Fortunately, it good on just about everything from soba noodles to cut vegetables to stirfry, but it be a long time before I manage to use it all up.
Coconut Shrimp with Peanut Sauce Recipe

Food and Drug Administration defines "whole grains" as cereal grains including corn, rice, oats and wheat that must be intact, ground, cracked or flaked. All parts of the grain are incorporated in whole grain flour, the primary ingredient of whole grain pasta, including the hull, the bran, germ and endosperm of the durum wheat kernel. The bran and germ contain the unsaturated fats, fiber, protein, and B vitamins that support health. The endosperm contains the starchy carbohydrates that give you energy. Regular pasta is made with semolina flour, a type of refined flour. Refined flour is made by first removing the hull, germ, and bran of the grain kernel, leaving only the endosperm. Processors refine grains this way to extend their shelf life and give flour a finer texture.
Vitamins and MineralsAmericanmade regular pasta is fortified with B vitamins and folic acid. Fortifying grains means "adding back" the nutrients that were taken away when the germ and wheat bran were removed. Whole grain flours do not need to be fortified and are less expensive this way. Both whole grain and regular pastas experience nutrient loss due to cooking. Some nutrients such as riboflavin may be more delicate than others, with losses of up to 36 percent. In addition, both whole grain and ironfortified regular pasta can [url=http://www.kevinbrick.com]christian louboutin shoes[/url] contain up to 10 percent of the recommended [url=http://www.kevinbrick.com]red bottom shoes[/url] daily allowance of iron, however the difference in iron content before and after cooking indicate that up to 25 percent of the iron may be lost during cooking.
Cooking TimeWhole grain pasta can take double the amount of cooking time for regular pasta. Regular pasta typically takes four to six minutes to cook, with whole grain pasta taking 10 to 12 minutes to cook. It takes longer for water to break through the complex proteinfiber networks in whole grain pasta and be reabsorbed. Whole grain pasta also has a chewier texture, making it arduous for people with poor dentition. Overcooking whole grain pasta will soften the texture, although it leads to further nutrient loss. It should not be used as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.

Whole Grain Pasta Vs
FiberWhole grain pasta is typically higher in fiber than regular pasta, although the amount may vary by manufacturer. The higher fiber content of whole grain pasta is because it is made with whole grain flour which includes the germ and bran. Two ounces of uncooked wholewheat pasta contain 5 g fiber, whereas the equivalent amount of regular pasta contains 2 g fiber. Fiber helps to remove cholesterol from your digestive system and slows stomach emptying so you feel fuller longer after a meal. Fiber is also what helps you conquer constipation.

The number one objection I hear from folks is "I need to hold the book in my hand". Yes I sometimes miss the feeling but I quickly adapted. You can change the font size, it's easy to learn to use, it's very light.
I don't reread books. Amazon tracks what I have read!
I always had a stack of books I was trying to get rid of. I don't know how many boxes of books I have donated to the library. I tried selling the books online but it just turned into a hassle and very little return. It took away from other things I prefer to do and trying to ensure it [url=http://www.kevinbrick.com]christian louboutin outlet[/url] was "mailed" on time was a bigger hassle.
Finding reading material was usually difficult. I would hang out at B and read the first few chapters of a book. Even as much [url=http://www.kevinbrick.com]red bottom shoes[/url] as I like B this would get boring. Amazon allows you to download the first few chapters of the book so you can determine if you like it or not. Plus Amazon has their reviews and the reviews from other readers so you get an idea if you like it.
Amazon has sales on the books so several times it has cost less than a $1 for an older book. New releases are $10 or at least the ones I read.
My only complaint is that it needs a light [url=http://www.kevinbrick.com]christian louboutin shoes[/url] to go with it. I read before I go to sleep and the light would be nice. On the other hand because the Kindle is not "backlit" your eyes don't get tired.
I use my Kindle daily since I'm an avid reader. I usually go through a book or 2 a week. It solved several problems for me:

While some athletes and fitness experts believe genetics determine the ability to gain [url=http://www.kevinbrick.com]christian louboutin shoes[/url] muscle mass, others believe proper diet and exercise effectively build muscle. If you have a hard time gaining muscle, trying a [url=http://www.kennedy-rs.com]Red Bottom Shoes[/url] hardgainer workout program might [url=http://www.mskexam.com]louis vuitton outlet online[/url] help pump you up. The core of most hardgainer programs typically includes spending less time in the gym by working out only a few times a week; focusing on compound strength training exercises included in a wellrounded weight lifting routine; performing fewer reps and avoiding overtraining; and employing high intensity training, or HIT, methods, but only to the point of burn. Modernday hardgainer programs derive primarily from the works of weightlifting and fitness experts, such as Authur Jones, Stuart McRobert and Randell Strossen. It's imperative to include specific and compound strength training exercises in your hardgainer routine, such as presses and squats, which focus on major muscles and work out [url=http://www.hvhypnosis.com]louis vuitton outlet store[/url] main muscle groups. Avoid working out [url=http://www.lancelsacpascherx.com]Lancel Pas Cher[/url] one muscle at a time, recommends Pittman.

Male erectile dysfunction can be a consequence of several contributing factors, which include psychological issues, wellness issues and damage to the erectile organ. Mental issues that a sufferer may see can have a harmful outcome on their ability to create and keep a steady hard-on. These issues can be the result of a mixture of factors, such as living a stress filled life, a sex partner that is not supporting, depression and low self-esteem. <a href=http://increasespermcountreviews.com>increase sperm count wikipedia</a>
