CBS Sports' Seth Davis leaves Maryland unranked (again)

Maryland checked in at No. 14 in this week's AP college basketball poll, up two spots from last week. It's the 13th consecutive week the Terps have stayed in the AP top 25, the longest streak since the 2002-03 season, according to InsideMDSports. 

And for the second straight week, CBS Sports analyst Seth Davis was the only voter to leave Maryland off the ballot. 

It's hard to imagine that the other 64 voters ranked Maryland between No. 12 and No. 23 (with the majority putting the Terps at No. 14), while Davis felt there were 25 other teams more deserving of the ranking. 

Thanks to the fine folks at, we can actually see Davis' ballot. It's not that absurd. But he did list Valparaiso as the No. 25 team in the country. So we're going to take a moment to compare Valpo's résumé with Maryland's résumé to see if Davis' argument has any merit or if he has just lost his marbles.

Conclusion: There's no denying it; Davis has lost his marbles.
