Mea Culpa: An Apology to the Louisville Cardinals and the BP Top 25 Redux

Marc DaleyAnalyst IJanuary 22, 2009

Boy, did I screw the pooch.

Every morning, I look over the results from last night's games and update my most recent bracketology in order to make it easier for next week's bracket projection. After I finish, I take a look at possible teams who could be moving in and out of the brackets or the BP Top 25. 

Lo and behold, I look at the Top 25 for this week and...no Louisville.

Yep, a team that's playing like a Top 10 squad, is almost as deep as a German philosopher, has a Hall of Fame-caliber coach, and is ripping through the brutal Big East was nowhere to be found.

I swear, this has nothing to do with my UK loyalties. Honest!
