The mess created with almost a dozen ranked teams in action on MLK Day that caused a delay in the rankings being released has been cleaned up but the who-beat-who syndrome continues with inconsistencies and a high number of knee injuries also impacting the pecking order as well. The first 12 spots didn’t change from...
