College Basketball Rankings 1/20/20

One thing that I keep hearing people say this year is that it’s crazy top teams keep getting beat. I think this is more of a reflection on how bad the AP poll actually is. While I miss on teams also, my rankings are more inlined with actual wins. For example here are some of the teams that went down on Saturday.

The AP poll tells you what writers think of a team, but not what the stats actually say. This upcoming week is going to be a very interesting one for my rankings. There is a good chance that the top 3 looks very different in next week’s rankings. Anyway enough ranting, here are this week’s power rankings.
