Carnage Weekend Rolls On In College Hoops

Did you waste your weekend watching a bunch of boring football games?

↵

Next weekend, you might want to pay a bit more attention to college basketball if the NFL Divisional Playoffs get a bit boring. Because, let me tell you, you missed a lot of upheaval over the past couple of days.

Five teams in this week's AP poll -- No. 8 West Virginia, No. 11 Kansas State, 14th-ranked Mississippi, No. 15 New Mexico and No. 22 Texas Tech -- fell to unranked opponents. The Rebels were the only team in that group to fall at home.

Four others fell to other ranked opponents. On Saturday, fourth-ranked Purdue fell to No. 17 Wisconsin; 20th-ranked Georgia Tech topped No. 5 Duke;  and No. 13 UConn collapsed at 12th-ranked Georgetown. But the biggest shock came late Sunday afternoon, when top-ranked Kansas fell at 16th-ranked Tennessee, a team without four key players -- three suspended for their arrest on drug and gun charges on New Year's Day and Tyler Smith, who was booted from the team for the same incident.

And it's not over yet. No. 18 Florida State is currently down at Maryland and 24th-ranked Washington is losing to Arizona. Ninth-ranked North Carolina closes the weekend out for the top 25 against a Virginia Tech team who may or may not have Malcolm Delaney. But keep in mind that Tar Heels already lost to the College of Charleston Monday.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to work on shuffling tomorrow's bracket projection.
