    ESPN: Pre-Season NCAA MBB Rankings

    Andy Katz: Indiana Hoosiers still lead revised Top 25, but plenty of changes elsewhere - ESPN

    I know how we all love to talk Top 25 with the ISU Men's Basketball Program, but ISU was not part of the '12-'13 pre-season ranks. (You gotta believe, if Royce was back...this team would be ranked from the get-go.) Here's to the Mayor proving everyone wrong again. But seriously, these "pre-season" ranks mean diddly-squat. Just something for these idiots to write about.

    Also, ISU didn't make the top "snubbed" list either. Classic ESPN. (More motivation for next year's squad!)

    We were snubbed from the snub! We have to go deeper!

    Kansas is overrated a bit. Michigan is way overrated. Hardaway isn't that great and they are expecting way to much out of freshmen.

    IF Bradley Beal returns Florida will be better than both those schools.

    Do they even know that we have talented players filling in? Clyburn? Lucious?

    We'll be in the mix if Lockett comes.

    Re: ESPN: Pre-Season NCAA MBB Rankings

    I can understand not being top 25, but not even being in the snubbed or teams or not being a sleeper team seems dumb. This doesn't mean anything, I guess we'll just be under the radar again

    I don't have a problem with us not being in it. We lost our best player. Clyburn and Lucious could be special, but you can't fault them for not putting us in their rankings

    I wouldn't be mad if Minnesota and Kansas State weren't in front of us. Iowa State was better than Kansas State last year and the programs are pointed in opposite directions, that's just stupid.

    Also Creighton is a little high, McDermott's great, but it's basically the same team minus their point guard and none of the guys strike me as players who will make huge strides. Don't think they'll drop off, but don't understand how they make a step forward. Even with McDermott, a lot of players in every sport have a dropoff year the year after everyone starts telling them they're the best player in the universe.

    What? We're in the "don't sleep on" section.

    Don't sleep on: VCU, Kansas State, Tennessee, Cincinnati, Saint Louis, Harvard, Pitt, Ohio, Florida State, Stanford, Iowa State, New Mexico, Butler, Miami (Fla.), Saint Mary's, Maryland, Xavier, Nevada, Murray State, Marquette, Valparaiso. (For more analysis, click here)

    I think Creighton will be very good again, but like you said they wont' be leaps and bounds better than last season. They'll miss Antoine Young more than they think, he was their best athlete and could create his own shot.

    I can't comprehend the KSU love. They were a solid team this year and have some good players. But they were nothing special and they trade a very good coach for a very average coach.

    They added a couple teams to that list since they released it a hour ago. I don't remember seeing Valpo in there either.

    +1. I would like a line of demarcation for when the post-season ends and the pre-season begins. My first thought would be it ain't in May.
