What's the most overrated team in the latest AP poll?

Myron Medcalf: Illinois is off to a surprising 8-0 start under new coach John Groce. The program has faced a lot of turmoil over the past year, so I understand the buzz. But what has the program done to justify a No. 13 ranking? A neutral-site win over Butler in the Maui Invitational? Check the Illini's schedule. Definitely overrated. Are they even top 20?
