The basketball world continues to tilt on its axis

New rankings today:

On the heels of their loss yesterday, Tennessee drops out of the top 10 for the first time in 255 weeks. Cal falls to 12. And Georgia Tech jumps in at 25!

So here’s my question…..given the current Pac-10 standings:

2008-09 WOMEN’s BASKETBALL

Team Conf. Pct. Overall Pct.

Stanford 0-0 – 7-1 .875
UCLA 0-0 – 7-1 .875
Oregon State 0-0 – 5-1 .833
California 0-0 – 8-2 .800
Arizona State 0-0 – 7-2 .778
Washington State 0-0 – 6-2 .750
USC 0-0 – 5-3 .625
Arizona 0-0 – 5-4 .556
Washington 0-0 – 3-3 .500
Oregon 0-0 – 3-4 .429

Should UCLA and Oregon State be ranked since they have a better record than Cal?

And should Mississippi State and Florida be ranked since they have better records than Tennessee?

Just wonderin.
