2018 CBB Rankings: Week One

11/13/2018

College basketball is back and with that comes a return of the Ric Flair ranking system. Our rankings are molded after Ric Flair's famous quote "to be the man, you gotta beat the man." The week's ranking are based solely on the week's results so if a lower ranked team defeats a higher ranked team, the two teams automatically swap rankings. For example, Duke and Kentucky switch spots after Duke's victory at the Champions Classic and Buffalo becomes our first unranked team to break the top 25 after defeating previous #13 West Virginia.

The AP poll slots Duke in at #1 over previous number one Kansas. Both teams must be considered favorites for the national championships due to Duke's freshman class and KU's unique blend of freshmen, transfers and returners. It'll be interesting to see how our rankings shake up with a huge slate of games coming up that are sure to bring some shocking results while teams figure out their rotations.
