    Coach Votes Ohio St #1

    The NCAA tourney is over and the coaches vote for the polls (mere afterthought). Yet some coach had the nerve to vote Ohio State #1 on the ballot and they are getting crucified right now because nobody has stood up yet to say "yes I was the guy that voted".

    One guy on ESPN said "This is completely agenda driven, but if you dont have the nerve to put your name down, you should have your voting privileges stripped. It is a slap in the face to the young men that played their hearts out in that tournament and went further than the sweet 16".

    Not sure I could have said it better than that.

    31 votes and UConn got 30 of them. Definitely agenda driven on vote 31 for Ohio State.

    Well, it is a good thing they held the tournament, otherwise someone might actually think Ohio State is number 1.

    I'm completely confused by this entire scenario. Coaches vote for who they think are the best coached team? And someone voted for a loser team?

    Supposed to vote for best team now that season is over (still subjective even though uconn win).

    I think that vote may have been cast by Tressel! Lol

    This is why I like the college hoops game over college football. The champion is the champion at the end of the season. At least there is no BCS on the court!

    Gonna be a homer here. If you look at the entire body of work throughout the regular season, and conference tournaments, OSU was the best team. And after seeing that dismal performance by Uconn and Butler last night, I don't blame someone for voting OSU #1. They would have made either of those teams look worse than they did. Just too bad OSU had a bad night against UK.

    That is why they have the tournament. The year the Patriots went undefeated and lost in the Super Bowl, would you have named them the best team or the champions? Truth is, they lost. Had they been the best team they would have won and could be called champions, but that is why they play the games. They had their chance to be #1 and lost.

    By the way, Kansas and a few other teams would argue about OSU being the best team as well.

    I was just about to say that. I think Kansas was better than them. But just my opinion.

    OK, so why do the coaches vote for a number 1 team after a 2-week long tournament to decide the number 1 team???
    Is it kinda like a team not winning it's conference tournament but being ranked higher than said conference champion? They (Uconn) were the best team in the tournament, but maybe not the best team in the nation? Just food for thought.

    They dont, the tournament decides who is number 1. That poll doesnt mean nothing other than to give us something else to talk about.


    For what its worth I would have given 5 first place votes to Kansas, 4 to Ohio State and the rest to Uconn. I think 9 out of 10 games that either one of those 2 could have beaten Uconn, but it doesnt mean anything because Uconn got it done when it mattered. Not to forget the ridiculous unbeaten streak in all the tournaments they played in. I think they were 13-0 or 14-0 in tourneys. Some crazy number like that.

    I agree, lets say Butler had won the game, could anyone honestly say they were the best NCAA team?

    well im a little biased - OSU had two reg season losses - and dominated the big ten tournament. Dominated the first few rounds of the NCAA tourney. had one bad night shooting against UK and they are out. Thats what happens in a single elimination tourney. They would have waxed the floor with butler...

    But as for voting your team #1 - idk how i feel - just bc uconn won the whole tourney they are the best team? they sure played great the last few weeks - but they had their speedbumps in the reg season.
