RE: AP poll out
Where I think we disagree a bit is, I feel the question of who has a better season, is a different matter than who has the better team. Obviously I would rather have my team lose in the championship game than make an early exit in the tournament. But in our earlier example who's to say Villanova wouldn't have been a final four team if they had been in a different bracket than UCONN, just as Kentucky or Florida could have been eliminated in the round of 32, if they had played UCONN at that time. Personally, I think playoffs and tournaments in all sports simply provide a snapshot of who's playing best at that particular moment, and are not necessarily a measure of the best overall team. A few years back a 10-6 wild card NY Giants beat an undefeated Patriots team in the Super Bowl. The Giants had the more successful season, but were certainly not the best team. This happens all the time, the 2011 Phillies won 102 games and had that amazing pitching staff, but lost to a wild card Cardinals team that then went on to win the World Series. No question the Phillies were a better team, but didn't have as successful a year as the Cardinals. The best team doesn't always win.

Also, the preseason rankings don't concern me. There are plenty of examples of a team getting no recognition in the pre season, and then having a good run in the Maui Invitational or some other tournament and getting a good ranking pretty quick. If we beat some good teams in our OOC games early this season, the recognition will come. If Georgetown beats Maryland, and then beats Wisconsin in the seasons third game, they will likely be a top 10 team in the first rankings to come out after that, even though they're not ranked now.
