These are good days for the color purple. Brett Favre and the Vikings are a win away from the Super Bowl. Michael Wilbon's Northwestern Wildcats recently knocked off Big Ten heavyweight Purdue and could be headed toward their first NCAA tournament. Grape Ape and Yogi Yahooeys dominated the Laff-A-Lympics the other night (although that one might have been a repeat broadcast). And Monday night, Kansas State knocked No. 1 Texas from the ranks of the unbeaten.
Considering 47 percent of SportsNation already thought Kentucky was the No. 1 team before Kansas State's win, it's safe to assume the Wildcats from Lexington will benefit most from the Wildcats of Manhattan winning. But what about the rest of the top five?
How you are ignoring UK's weak schedule amazes me. There is no chance a #1 seed Kentucky goes to St. Louis over a #1 seed KU team. Kentucky has risked less than any other top ten team on the court - being undefeated with that schedule is not some great feat.

Kentucky has played seven games away from home, more than any of the current No. 1 seeds. I'm just not buying this argument. Don't blame UK because KU couldn't beat a team with six scholarship players (and very nearly lost to one with NO scholarship players). Is Kansas better in March? Probably. Have they done more than Kentucky to date? Absolutely not. Full transcript
