    We dropped to 5th. Kansas State all the way up to 3rd and Baylor down to 4th.

    Power rankings mean how they're playing right now. Our game against Kansas State has no bearing on power rankings.

    This. Look at the Big 10 rankings they released. Illinois is at the very bottom. Record has nothing to do with it.

    The other thing that works against us is Royce's lack of scoring. A "star" player who doesn't necessarily have to score a lot of points to have a good game is not the norm. And a lot of pundits have a hard time looking past the point totals, and it affects their perception of us.

    I'd like to see Royce put up more points as much as anyone, but if he can act as a facilitator, and we still get wins, I have no problem with that.

    Those 4/5 and 3/6 games in the Big 12 tourney are looking like they'll have some big NCAA tourney implications.

    Our RPI is 42, KSU's is 49. Our SOS is 61, there's is 73. And we're two games up on them in the conference. These power rankings are basically just "how did each team do this week" standings.

    KSU is 3-4 in their last 7 games, being 1-2 in their last three. While these are meaningless rankings, I have a hard time seeing how you could say they are better than us our Baylor right now.

    Well, in the last week Baylor whipped us and KSU won at Baylor. So that order makes sense (based on last week)

    They don't mean all that much but it still interesting to see where they put us.

    They also beat Kansas. We lost to baylor. Therefore its not far fetched at all for them to be ahead of us in the POWER RANKINGS.

    Unless I am misunderstanding you, KSU didn't beat Kansas.
