Buckeyes #1 In AP Poll For The Second Straight Week

The Buckeyes earned all but two first place votes in this week's AP College Basketball Poll, giving them the number one ranking in both polls for the second straight week. We'll see at least a new #2 next week, as Pittsburgh has already lost this week (at home nonetheless) to Notre Dame.

For the most part the AP Poll is decent, but there's one glaring problem. Why is Michigan State still ranked? Look, I know they're always dangerous, but until the Spartans show some kind of consistency, they don't deserve to be in the Top 25. They have seven losses. SEVEN. Although I suppose those wins over Wisconsin, Minnesota and Washington are what is keeping them relevant. Oh, and that Tom Izzo guy.

Here is the full Top 25 (from ESPN):
