A: A single, last-place vote in the AP Men's Basketball Poll.
This week's poll reads something like this, if you're a glutton for punishment and scroll down far enough:
Others Receiving Votes: Florida St. 77, Cornell 39, UAB 32, Xavier 31, Wake Forest 31, Siena 19, Rhode Island 17, UNLV 16, Clemson 16, Missouri 13, Charlotte 12, Marquette 10, St. Mary's 9, UTEP 7, Wichita St. 5, Oklahoma St. 3, Maryland 2, George Mason 1
Others not receiving votes: Arizona, ASU, UCLA, USC, Stanford, Cal, Oregon, OSU, Washington, WSU.
Not one vote. Empty. Dry as a bone. Barren, bereft, adrift on a sea of suck.
Zero, folks. Aught, blank, bottom, cipher, insignificancy, love, lowest point, nada, nadir, naught, nil, nix, nobody, nonentity, nought, nullity, oblivion, ought, rock bottom, scratch, shut out, squat, void, zilch, zip, zot. Also, boo, dick, fuck-all, jack shit, bupkis, on the schnied.
No bubble trouble this year. Will this conference's champion be seeded higher than #12?
If a team comes out of nowhere to win the conference tournament, does the Pac-10 still only get one team?
What's the world coming to? Is this just a football conference? (Sorry folks, the SEC has 4 teams in the top 25.)
