UW Badgers Basketball Power Ranking Variety

We don't normally put all that much stock in "power rankings" when it comes to Badger basketball, however we do check them out quick out of curiosity to see what people think of the team. Currently for instance the Badgers are ranked number 15 in this weeks ESPN Power Rankings, that seems pretty fair given the play on the court at the moment. What is interesting about this week is that as per usual with the UW Badgers basketball team in the Power Rankings there is an interesting variety on where the individual voters placed the team, however the oddity is that out of 17 voters 16 put the Badgers around 11 through 18 on their balots and 1 Doug Gottlieb decided to leave the Badgers out of his top 25. To Mr. Gottlieb we say that is fine as fans we are concerned about our offense as well but at this point in the season it is pretty clear that the defense is legitimate which begs the question how does the top defense in the country in college basketball not make your top 25 when they have proven it is legit against top 25 offenses. Sure the Badgers picked bad nights to completely suck on offense, but that defense would win those games 7 out of 10 times in our mind.
