Son of a B!tch - NU back on AP radar

NU collected 6 votes in today's AP Poll (and continues to receive no recognition in the ESPN/Coaches poll). This is an unwelcome development, and Carmody Court wishes Northwestern had continued to receive no AP votes.

Why? NU's 6 votes came courtesy of a #20 ranking by none other than Seth Davis. Can you think of anything that could be possibly as damaging to a team's hopes than a Seth Davis outlier endorsement? Simply put Seth's negative karma makes the "SI Cover Jinx" seem like a desirable accolade.

We pray that the team does not become aware of this development. Carmody Court was holding out hopes for one and possibly two wins this week, but that now appears to be a pipe dream. Thanks for nothing Seth!
