Here's the statement that will run in the next issue of ESPN The Magazine:
ONE WE FORGOT : One, two, 19, 48. Who's counting? Not us. In debating how far Louisville would fall in our college basketball rankings (Split Takes, Nov. 16), we inadvertently let the reigning Big East champs slip away altogether. (We meant to sit them at 26.) We regret the omission but blame it on the Cards' (and their coach's) under-the-radar summer.
We better get a BCS bowl or something out of this.
