The hype is gone.

After losing to St. John’s on Saturday, their third defeat in their last four games, the Arizona Wildcats (10-3) nearly fell out of the AP Top 25 and are viewed in an even worse light by some of the most well-known college basketball experts.

Here’s a roundup of where the Wildcats rank in the eyes of some of the major media outlets and ESPN’s Bracketology.
