I know the Big East is the best conference in basketball but Notre Dame and Georgetown don’t deserve to be top 25 teams at the moment.
Notre Dame was ranked at #22 before their loss last night to Marquette. The Irish are now 12-7, 3-5 in the Big East and have lost four straight. The thing that pisses me off is that if you’re a top 25 team, aren’t you suppose to be able to beat good competition, as in other teams from the top 25. So far this year Notre Dame is 2-5 against Top 25 teams and has also lost to St. Johns and Ohio State. Tell me why they’re deserving of being a top 25 team right now?
The other team, Georgetown, is #23 in the latest polls and currently boasts a 12-6 record, 3-4 in the Big East. Georgetown is 3-5 against Top 25 teams, has lost three straight games with the last one coming against Seton Hall. I keep hearing that G-town has the hardest schedule and that’s why they’re deserving of being a Top 25 team? Yes, there Big East conference schedule is tough but seven of their 12 wins have come against less than worthy opponents (i.e. Jacksonville, Wichita St., Drexel, American University, Savannah St., Mt. St. Mary’s, and Florida International.) So why do they deserve to be a top 25 team at the moment.
