You might remember the San Jose Mercury News' Jon Wilner as the guy who left SU out of his Top 25 last year after the Orange defeated Memphis...but still kept Memphis in there. Wilner claimed it was all just a typo and promised to keep a closer eye on the Orange moving forward.
Looks like he kept to his word as Cuse Country discovered. Wilner is the mystery 2nd AP voter who gave SU a first-place vote today. Wilner joins Dick Weiss in the very elite Smartest People in College Basketball club.
In the latest poll, Texas and Kentucky also receive a first-place vote while Kansas racks up 61 of them. Purdue, somehow, remains No. 4, ahead of the Orange.
