He shouldn't be allowed to vote starting next season. To say that, at this point, none of Duke, Kansas or Tennessee are among the 25 best teams in college hoops is just silly. I know this is probably his way of drawing attention to himself, but it's really dumb, IMO.

He should lose his voting rights. Those aren't the rules.

Jane, you ignorant slut.
 
I don’t think there’s anyway you can rationlize Duke or Tenn (that team is no joke) not being in the top 5 at this point. Haven’t seen Kansas play yet but I imagine they are still playing with thier full compliment of professional students.

I understand the philosophy of wanting teams prove their rankings but it seems counterintuitive leaving out teams that have played that well and have good wins.
 
Just one of the many press members with voting credentials that shouldn't have them. As a Met fan, Jacob deGrom didn't get the unanimous Cy Young decision because a high school sports writer chose not to vote for him.

I can understand he hates Duke and Kansas. But come on. Tennessee needs as much love as we can give them.
 
Because Tennessee is not blue blood.
I'm not sure why I am going down this rabbit hole, but why do you think TN 'needs our love' because they're not a blue blood? How does that affect us at all?

This guy is a total clown
 
There are so many smug writers out there. 3 didn't put Ken Griffey Jr on the HOF ballot. On what planet in what galaxy was KGJR not a hall of famer? Incredibly stupid
