The college basketball landscape is as messy as it's ever been, and the just-released AP Top 25 expresses that messiness in full.
You have to track back two years to find a poll where the top-ranked team earned less first-place votes than the 26 re-minted No. 1 Indiana earned this week. And I can't find a single AP poll in the last 11 seasons where the Week 15 No.1 had as many losses as Indiana's three.
It's a headache for pollsters and a joy for those of us who relish a good debate.
