Defending champion Tar Heels don't seem surprised by ranking omission

Friday, November 18, 2005

For the first time in 17 years, a defending national champion is starting its season unranked. But ask around the Smith Center and you won't find anyone all that upset or surprised - the Tar Heels lost their top seven scorers, with four underclassmen leaving for the NBA. And while those remaining say the rankings don't matter much, they mention the snub as motivation for a youth-laden team aiming to prove voters wrong. (CBS Sportsline)
