College Hoops Top 25 (1/30)


SEE! HE USES DEE-AH ANTLAHHHHHH! AND HE'S A MURDERAHHH!

Ah, yes. There's nothing quite like Super Bowl media week. The surprisingly well timed release of damaging investigative findings, the voluptuous reporters from south of the border, the roided up participants showing off their fancy college degrees with their articulate interviews. It really is a freak show worthy of the biggest single sporting event of the year...

But that's for Friday. Well, not the analysis of media week. But you can be damned sure I'll be here with all the prop bets fit to fill your pockets. I'm still searching for odds on a coin flip that's performed by bouncing a commemorative Super Bowl quarter off of that Azteca reporter's ass, to no avail. But rest assured that when I find those round and juicy odds, I'll be sure to include them in the Super Bowl breakdown as well...

Now, it's on to the latest Rooch Nation College Hoops Top 25. And while there are no gigantic asses that make you question biology and physics, there is apparently a guy named "Big Nook" and an Eric Devendorf 2.0 sighting. So it shouldn't prove to be a total loss should you actually avert your eyes from that jean clad temptress and venture down the page...

Enjoy...


College Hoops Top 25
1. Michigan (19-1) 1

Big Nook and Jim Jam would be proud. For the first time since 1992, the Wolverines are back atop the national polls. Of course, I've already had them #1 for several weeks this season. But what do I know? I know this. I know that a match up with Indiana this Saturday in Bloomington should tell us all whether or not this year's version of the star studded Wolverines are indeed the front runners for the title that the Fab 5 could never get...


2. Kansas (19-1) 2 

Those uniforms are hideous. That is all...

3. Florida (16-2) 4

4. Indiana (18-2) 6

5. Duke (17-2) 3

6. Gonzaga (19-2) 10

7. Butler (17-3) 9



8. NC State (16-5) 5

Different week, same excuse for my boys over at NC State. OK, so they lost to Virginia. So what? They're still going to be a team I favor in most neutral court match ups. And if you expect on having a successful bracket, they're still a team you're going to want to pick, too...


9. Syracuse (18-2) 7

News came down this week that freshman Dajuan Coleman is out for the next 6 weeks with some sort of knee issue. Unfortunate for Coleman, obviously. But I think this could do well to finally help that Orange offense to start gelling and find an actual identity. I've been of the opinion for the past few weeks that fellow freshman, Jerami Grant, is the necessary straw that will help stir this random concoction of offense into one delicious Orange beverage. Not saying he's the "answer", as that will likely come from increased consistency from Brandon Triche and CJ Fair, but getting Grant more playing time should go a long way towards giving Syracuse the offensive consistency it's seemingly lacked all season...  

10. Louisville (17-4) 8

11. Ohio St. (16-4) 14

12. Arizona (17-2) 13


13. Miami (15-3) NR

Sure, they beat Duke. But this Miami team is so much more than 1 big win and Barry Larkin's kid. Nope, this Hurricane team is the culmination of all the work head coach Jim Larranaga has put in since his arrival from George Mason. And if they can stay healthy (namely big man Reggie Johnson), Miami should be not only contend for an ACC title, but should expect a deep postseason run, as well. They're just built like a successful tournament team. And Lord knows they've got a coach that can get them there...

14. Michigan St. (17-4) 17 

15. Missouri (15-4) 21


16. Wichita St. (19-3) 19


17. Creighton (18-3) 12

18. UNLV (17-4) 18




19. San Diego St. (16-4) 25

It's always tough when you have to start your season playing outside on a boat, but the Aztecs seem to be bouncing back quite nicely. Their recent throttling of New Mexico has them right back in the hunt for the Mountain West crown, though they still need to prove their mettle against UNLV & Colorado St. But those chances will come soon enough. And if they continue to play the defense they've been playing over the past few weeks, those games should prove to be some of the better games in the MWC this season...


20. Oregon (18-2) NR

21. Minnesota (16-5) 11



22. Kentucky (14-6) NR

23. Ole Miss (17-2) 24

Marshall Henderson. Or as I like to call him: Eric Devendorf 2.0. Sure, the Ole Miss shooting guard is a better scorer than the former Orange scorer ever was. But take a look and listen at their words and actions during a game, and you'll see where I get the comparison. And no, I'm not only using Devendorf to compare because he's white. But hey, it's not hurtin' the cause, either. It's mostly because they both scream curse words, berate the opposing crowds, get into confrontations with their coaches, and all 'n all look like your run of the mill Meth dealer...

Oh, and there's a free tip to my friends voting in the national polls. You're going to want to get Kentucky back in the mix. Yeah, they're starting to play well again. So, you know. Just a little free advice. Since I know most of you never actually watch any games...

24. Marquette (15-4) 22

25. New Mexico (17-3) 15


just missed: La Salle; Cincinnati; Georgetown; Pittsburgh; Oklahoma St.; Colorado St.; VCU

dropped: (16) VCU; (20) Kansas St.; (23) Cincinnati



Twitter Picks: 39-15-2 (.714)

Last Week: 3-2-0

Had some more success on Twitter, this week. Rode the Prob Bowl OVER and won a few spread bets with NC State, Butler and Pitt. Still not sure how long this hot streak is gonna last, but I advise you get on board before it's too late. And all you Teds should be on Twitter, anyway. In this day and age, having a smart phone and not using Twitter is like having a South American reporter's ass in your face and not wondering how many beverages you'd possibly be able to rest on it. It's just illogical and a waste of a great opportunity...

So get on Twitter, and meet back here on Friday. We'll pick some prop bets, make some money and likely continue to discuss the finer points of the Brazilian posterior. Should be good times....

Enjoy the rest of your week, friends...
