Syracuse No. 2 In AP, Coaches Polls. Booooring...

The Syracuse Orange are the No. 2 team in the nation once again in both the AP and Coaches Polls. Tell me something I don't know...

In the AP, Kentucky is No. 1 and received 63 first-place votes, Syracuse is No. 2 and receive two first-place votes and Missouri, Kansas and Duke round out the top 5. Ohio State dropped from sixth to eighth and Georgetown lurks at No. 9.

In the Coaches Poll, Kentucky received all thirty-one first-place votes and are followed by Syracuse, Missouri, Duke and Kansas.

Other Big East teams in both polls are Georgetown (9/8), Marquette (10/10), Louisville (17/17) and Notre Dame (20/18).

Syracuse is 4-1 against teams currently ranked and 2-0 against teams currently ranked in the top ten.

In the RPI, Syracuse is still No. 1, though our overall SOS is dropping (22nd). The RPI makes less and less sense each week as our SOS plummets despite the fact that our resume looks better and better. Syracuse is now 5-0 against RPI Top 30 teams, 7-1 against RPI Top 50 teams.

In the Massey Ratings, Kentucky has overtaken us as No. 1. We're still No. 2.

The Sagarin Ratings continue to dislike the Orange, putting us down at No. 4 behind Kentucky, Ohio State and Kansas.

In the world of Bracketology, SB Nation continues to have us the one-seed in the East, though now we play bitter-rival Stony Brook in the first round. Lunardi continues to have us as the No. 1 overall seed and has us playing the winner of God Damn Vermont and Savannah State.
