I suppose this ranking is no surprise, but it still hurts to be ranked 38 slots lower than this time last year.
The good news is that it won't take many wins to climb back up 40 or 50 spots to being merely lousy.
I appreciate the effort taken in the profile, as it would be easy to write a couple of token paragraphs and move on, but the Times gives us a fair shake. The only obvious errors I found was in the caption of the photo at the top: that game at Kansas was in '07, not Ames in '08. Darn interns.
I did enjoy the digs at Chizik for both their accuracy and pointedness.
