    Yes, we will be ranked. Have you seen all of those articles by the writers talking about how badly they want to blow Niang? Fred has established as much credibility in our program as Tony Bennett has with UVA.

    The college ball experts know that BDJ is going to help fill the void that Kane leaves and how good of a player Monte really is.

I had a little bit of time to do some research and decided to do my own preseason Top 25. For any of you that are in the same boat as me and love college ball, I encourage you to post your Top 25. Anyways, here's mine:

    1 Duke
    2 Kentucky
    3 Arizona
    4 Florida
    5 Wisconsin
    6 IOWA STATE!!!
    7 Kansas
    8 Louisville
    9 San Diego State (it may be a bit of a stretch here)
    10 North Carolina
    11 Connecticut
    12 Texas
    13 Virginia
    14 Wichita State (they're extremely overrated, some preseason polls have them top 10)
    15 Ohio State
    16 Michigan State (big drop off from last year)
    17 Virginia Commonwealth
    18 Villanova
    19 Oklahoma
    20 Gonzaga
    21 Dayton (before you call me dumb, they return 3 starters from last years team that didn't hit their stride until late February and it showed in the tourney)
    22 Stanford
    23 Kansas State
    24 Michigan
    25 SMU

    I would've put SMU in the top 15, but after losing Mudiay to China, that really hurt them. Larry Brown still has a very excellent team.

    Ranking ISU #6 may be a bit of a stretch, but even though I'm a total homer, this team does have a ton of talent and is capable of being a Top 10 team, IMO.

    Please include your rankings as well to help pass the time between now and November.

    Note that this poll does not mean that I think Duke will necessarily win the 'ship. It all depends on matchups and Duke has a pretty big tendency to come up short (see last year).
    ......#68 Iowa

    It's hard to say you don't troll at all when you throw Iowa in there.

    Umm, and Hogue. What he did against UCONN may have been the single best Cyclone performance last year.

    Why, because it's absurd that they might sneak into the tail end of the rankings? I get the ISU/Iowa rivalry but be realistic. They will get votes in the preseason polls, maybe enough to get them into the Top 25. It would be trolling if I put them 12th and put ISU at 22. Just blindly calling me a troll is old and played out and boring.

    You're a ******* ****** if you think Iowa should be in the top 25 preseason poll.

    I agree. I didn't want to go into too much detail because I could go on and on about this team. I just thought my point would be made by listing only Niang and Morris.

    Such a well thought out argument against. Imagine that, I am the only one one this whole thread who is a bleepity bleep for some team they put in their rankings. I am SHOCKED! Let's guess whether the Preseason AP Poll has them closer to my prediction of #24 or your prediction of #68...

    Speaking of well thought out arguments, why don't you provide one for putting Iowa in the top 25. Do you even know anything about that team? Who they lose/gain. Who their coach is? Or were you just being a typical tuco-bag.

    Without using google, I'd like to hear your thoughts on Iowa being in the top 25.

    Iowa doesn't deserve to be in the top 25 but I could definitely see them possibly getting in. I would put them mid to high 30's but others seem to think they are much better than they are.

    Not to get in between you two, but Iowa finished 9-9 in conference last year. Ended the season on a 4 game losing streak (lost 7 of their last 8). And lost their best player in Marble.

    They may get a few votes from some folks who aren't paying attention at the beginning of the season, but no way will they be ranked.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.
