Merry Christmas, We're Ranked Lower Than Gonzaga

As you'd expect following Saturday's loss to Missouri, the Illini slipped a bit in the polls this week.

First of all, unless something major breaks, and maybe even then, there won't be many posts here today or tomorrow. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't check the site every few minutes and refresh the page numerous times, because you never know when or if something new will show up.

But to the subject, we are here to talk about the Illini in the rankings, and obviously we've slipped a bit in the polls following the Mizzou loss.

In the Coaches Poll the Illini slip from #10 to #15 while in the AP Poll they fall from #10 to #12.

Of course, the gag here is that in the Coaches Poll the Illini are ranked two spots behind Gonzaga. Whom they beat by 11 points on Gonzaga's home court but a few weeks ago.

So I guess it's a good thing that the polls don't actually mean anything.
