Associated Press voters confused by Cats?

Associated Press poll voters seem to be having as hard a time figuring out Kentucky this season as some fans are.

In a quick perusal of the 36 ballots submitted this week by the poll voters,  two ballots had the Cats rated as high as No. 9 in the nation and one that had them ranked as low as No. 23.

Most voters (this one included) had the Cats somewhere between 12 and 16. Full disclosure: On my ballot, I have them ranked No. 13.

In the latest Bracketology put out by ESPN’s Charlie Crème on Monday, Kentucky is a No. 4 seed in Lexington, with a potential matchup against fifth-seeded California in the second round.

According to Crème, the winner would advance to South Bend, where a likely matchup with unbeaten Notre Dame would be on the horizon.
