The new college basketball polls are out and Cincinnati has made a big climb in both. The Bearcats rank 17 and 17. That's a 6 spot move on one and a 7 spot move on the other. I don't know how UC would move 7 spots after beating Rutgers and Seton Hall, but Marquette moved up a spot after losing to Louisville by 83 points yesterday. Polls are stupid.  What is not stupid are Matt Norlander's best photos from January. It features President Ono getting his head shaved. It also features this picture Credit for that goes to CBS. That picture is awesome. I didn't know Sergeant Doakes from Dexter attended games. That one band member at the top is not too impressed. He's seen better. The guy in the front row either looks discouraged or he is doing his best #MeanFace. I gotta say, when I first said Justin Jackson mean face last season, I had no idea that it would catch on. I think whoever was running the Go Bearcats twitter that night also used it and the rest was history. That's a lesson to all of you kids out there, say a lot of things and maybe one of them will catch on.  Oh, here are the polls.    AP Top 25 RK TEAM RECORD PTS 1 Indiana (58) 20-2 1,615 2 Florida (7) 18-2 1,536 3 Michigan 20-2 1,490 4 Duke 19-2 1,413 5 Kansas 19-2 1,350 6 Gonzaga 21-2 1,249 7 Arizona 19-2 1,248 8 Miami (FL) 17-3 1,132 9 Syracuse 18-3 1,091 10 Ohio State 17-4 1,033 11 Louisville 18-4 1,018 12 Michigan State 18-4 994 13 Kansas State 17-4 782 14 Butler 18-4 774 15 New Mexico 19-3 660 16 Creighton 20-3 578 17 Cincinnati 18-4 552 18 Minnesota 17-5 454 19 Oregon 18-4 390 20 Georgetown 16-4 364 21 Missouri 16-5 245 22 Oklahoma State 15-5 235 23 Pittsburgh 18-5 207 24 Marquette 15-5 137 25 Notre Dame 18-4 132 Others receiving votes: Ole Miss 75, North Carolina State 64, Colorado State 49, Wichita State 49, Memphis 44, Wisconsin 28, Saint Mary's 27, Louisiana Tech 24, Kentucky 21, San Diego State 17, UNLV 13, UCLA 8, Saint Louis 8, Virginia Commonwealth 8, Virginia 4, Akron 4, Connecticut 2, Belmont 1 Dropped from rankings: Wichita State 15, Ole Miss 16, North Carolina State 19, San Diego State 22   USA Today Coaches Poll RK TEAM RECORD PTS 1 Indiana (25) 20-2 766 2 Florida (6) 18-2 742 3 Michigan 20-2 690 4 Duke 19-2 683 5 Kansas 19-2 654 6 Gonzaga 21-2 614 7 Arizona 19-2 601 8 Michigan State 18-4 518 9 Syracuse 18-3 514 10 Ohio State 17-4 502 11 Miami (FL) 17-3 485 12 Louisville 18-4 470 13 Creighton 20-3 369 14 Butler 18-4 325 15 Kansas State 17-4 314 16 New Mexico 19-3 295 17 Cincinnati 18-4 265 18 Minnesota 17-5 194 19 Oregon 18-4 179 20 Missouri 16-5 143 21 Georgetown 16-4 138 22 Wichita State 19-4 83 23 Ole Miss 17-4 69 24 Oklahoma State 15-5 57 25 Pittsburgh 18-5 54 25 San Diego State 16-5 54 Others receiving votes: Notre Dame 47, Colorado State 38, Marquette 38, Virginia Commonwealth 33, Wisconsin 25, North Carolina State 24, Memphis 19, Saint Mary's 18, Southern Miss 13, UNLV 12, Belmont 7, Louisiana Tech 6, Middle Tennessee 4, Kentucky 4, UCLA 4, Oklahoma 2, Akron 2, Saint Louis 1 Dropped from rankings: North Carolina State 19, Marquette 25
