Bulls crack ESPN.com power rankings

Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett

For those of you upset that South Florida didn't make either the AP or coaches Top 25 this week, here's some small solace: the Bulls are No. 25 in ESPN.com's power rankings that were just released.

I had USF ranked No. 22 this week. One voter had the Bulls at No. 11. Several voters left them out of the rankings all together.

Clearly, opinion is split on just how good this team is, and I wouldn't be surprised if some voters are understandably exercising caution on a program that's made a habit of climbing the rankings in September before falling out in October. (More on that later today.)

Cincinnati is No. 9 in the latest power rankings.
