Bam - Week Sixteen's Poll Becomes Irrelevant

No sooner had Week 16's Blogger Poll been posted and it become irrelevant with Tennessee's loss last night to Vanderbilt. That must be the shortest reign at Number 1 in hoops history -- less than 24 hours.

The race to a National Championship remains wide open with at least 8 teams that have a legitimate shot at winning it. I believe those ten are (in my order of probability):

North Carolina
UCLA
Duke
Memphis
Georgetown
Texas
Kansas
Tennessee

Yes you are correct, I do not believe there is a Big Ten team with a legitimate shot of winning it all. And while there are a lot of good teams in the Big East, only Georgetown looks capable of stringing together 6 wins (and that may be a stretch).

What about Louisville?

They are playing very well right now, but I am not yet convinced they can string together 6 straight victories against top talent.
