What If….December 28th, 2012 at 3:51 pm by Lawrence Gilligan under News, Sports
What if…the Lobos defeated South Dakota St., improving to 13-0 instead of 12-1 and defeating 8th ranked Cincinnati last night to improve to 14-0 and *STILL ranked 16th? What if the Lobos defeated South Dakota St., 8)Cincinnati, and THEN beat St.Louis on New Years Eve?? The *then 16th ranked Lobos would most DEFINITELY be ranked in the top 10 without a doubt as their record would hypothetically be15-0…Instead, the Lobos find themselves the next team in the top 25 at 26 receiving 66 votes in the AP Poll with (now) a 13-1 record. I definitely think the lack of respect for the Lobos reighned true in the recent poll…How do you get bounced from 16 to completely out of the poll? 10 spots after one loss?? Either way, the Lobos bounced back with a big 55-54 win over 8th ranked Cincy and the rest will be history when they crack the top 25 on Monday.
