A Pulitizer? A Booker? Or a National Book Award?

Luke "Pretty Boy" Winn just posted a Power 16 that puts ESPN's rankings -- a composite of expert polls from the likes of Andy Katz, Dick Vitale, Joe Lunardi, Jay Bilas, Doug Gottlieb, and the one and only Andy Glockner (who?) -- to shame.

Among Luke's must-consider tidbits:

**Sweet Valley High: The New Year's Eve game between top-ranked Illinois and unranked Cincinnati will take place at Valley High School in Las Vegas, Nevada.
**Trojan Man: In his very first appearance on ESPN, Rick Majerus said the following to Jay Bilas (who had opted for a polo rather than the traditional Hawaiian shirt at the Maui Invitational): "Jay, only a guy who gets out of the shower to take a piss would wear a shirt like that."
**Most Valuable Hyphenated Player: No longer Nik Caner-Medley. Now Pops Mensah-Bonsu.
**U.S.S. RPI: Boston College. Unranked in the AP and ESPN/USA Today coaches polls, the Eagles are first in the RPI.
