    Breakdown of WBB poll

    This was posted on another message board. Kind of interesting to see how people vote.

    -Our highest ranking was #14 by Deb Antonelli of Westwood One and Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald

    -Our lowest was unranked by Dave Trimmer of the Spokesman Review

    -Also, to note, Des Moines Register's Dan Johnson has us at #22 and Texas at #17.

    Re: Breakdown of WBB poll

    I knew Dan Johnson was lame (updates his blog every 6 weeks or so), but to be this clueless is inexcusable. To a certain degree you can understand why reporters from NC or VA or CT would rank us low...but someone from the midwest??? Who supposedly
    attends a game every now and then...and says he covers women's basketball???

    Hey Dan, how was the Big XII Women's Tournament...oh yeah, that's right, you weren't there!!!

    It wouldn't bother me if he didn't have Texas so high. Didn't we just beat them on a neutral court? Why does he have them 5 spots better?

    What I don't understand is how anyone could not rank us? Look how many ranked teams we have beat, look at our RPI (in the top 15). How could you not rank this team.

    That's all garbage. Guess we will have to win 4 or 6 and show them up.

    Deb Antonelli is probably one of the top 5 women's basketball media professionals in my opinion. She actually knows WBB. So, I put more stock in her vote.

    On a side note, has anyone noticed how many bad play-by-play announcers have covered WBB this year? Can't pronounce names, I love the guy who mentions the 10 second call in the backcourt....You could hear Deb role her eyes.

    I hope you're joking, but I have a feeling you're not.

    If someone actually said this, they should stop the game and kick him/her out of the arena.

    They had Bobby Knight do a game this year - one of Pat Summitt's I think - and he basically mentioned that he had only found out recently that the women didn't have a 10 second violation. Like, one of the other broadcasters had probably told him that day during prep. I think he did mention something about how he was in favor of it...

    Granted, he's been coaching mens basketball forever....

    Mr. Knight did crack me up when he dissed Courtney Paris as slow, and said Ashley was better than her.

    haha - i totally forgot about that until right now. Said that a few times. "I understand all that courtney's accomplished, but ashley looks like the better player to me." And to be honest - that night she was.
