    NEVER post anything before checking it yourself FIRST.

    I may have been giving BS info on my post earlier. THis is how it went. I got to work, checked ESPN.com and saw both polls not updated yet. My boss asks me if we are ranked I said NO I dont think so. He messages me a few minutes later that we are 21st in AP and Coaches is NOT out yet.

    I was so excited to share I posted it on here before checking. I TRUST this guy and hes very sharp. I went back and asked him where he got the link and he said he "googled" it, so then I googled it and couldnt find it anywhere. So I just lost ALL credibility and rightfully so. I am SORRY for posting heresay and not a fact. Assasinate away! Again I messed up and I am sorry.

    Thanks for your reply, but anyone who follows college basketball knows the AP is released later in the afternoon after the coaches poll, so I was positive it wasn't valid.

    Thanks for your message though.

    Mea Culpa graciously accepted.

    And we don't do much gracefully around here, so savor it.

    I went to college thinking I wanted a career; turns out I just wanted paychecks.

    A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

    See, wanting to be the first isn't always being right. Apology excepted. BTW...if it wasn't posted on twitter, it definitely is right
