Associated Press Poll Awards 2011 NCAA Championship to Ohio State

I envision an article on The Onion tomorrow that says something like: After watching the UConn-Butler championship game, AP voters unanimously agreed to award the #1 ranking to the Ohio State Buckeyes despite their elimination in the Sweet 16. Some voters thought the game was so bad that they left both teams out of their top 10. Others awarded Butler with the 19th spot in the rankings, equal to their worst-in-history shooting percentage in the game.
