Without even looking I will say Chicken U? Otherwise known as UW.

Wow, and the most Underrated is a bit interesting as well.

I think the gist of the article is interesting. Yes, I do get some guilty pleasure in seeing Purple and chicken yellow being at the top of that overrated list.

That being said, I think it shows how much polls are just garbage when you see teams ranked just on name alone. I know in football this is more assuredly the case since so many teams have similar records. Hoops gets it too, but I feel the cream of the crop tend to percolate to the top of the polls by the end of the season. While it was posted as a jab at our Huskie friends I found it interesting.
