    First Preseason Poll Released

    ESPN - NCAA College Basketball Polls, College Basketball Rankings, NCAA Basketball Polls

    I know UCLA had a good recruiting class, but they also lost a lot of talent. I guess they still have Shipp and Collison.

    Re: First Preseason Poll Released

    What is this infatuation with USC? Can we not wait until they actually do something before ranking them? Or, is it since they're from Southern California, they get an automatic pre-season ranking.

    Re: First Preseason Poll Released

    Gonzaga at #11? Really? I mean, I love the Cinderella story that is Gonzaga, but have they really done anything over the last 5-6 years that warrants that kind of preseason love?

    Well they have averaged around 23 wins a year... Plus they have a couple pretty decent recruiting classes in a row.

    Agreed. And Floyd has done nothing in his career to show that he is a top coach deserving a high pre season ranking

    Yeah, I know that Few recruits to a "no-name" school like no other, and that they're pretty much a shoo-in for the NCAA Tourney every year as long as they finish no worse than 2nd in their conference. My thing is I figured people would have started to back off of them with their recent track record in the NCAA Tournament (getting bumped earlier than they should).

    They did make it to the tourney last year, and I think Mayo was their only big loss if I'm not mistaken.

    In a down year for the Big 12, we have 3 teams in the Top 25 and 3 more getting votes.

    I think Floyd is a very good coach, but has he ever made it past the sweet 16? USC without Mayo is like a BLT without mayo......sure you got bacon and all, but it still isn't the same.

    Re: First Preseason Poll Released

    Analysists were saying this is Gonzaga's strongest team yet.

    I think Notre Dame will shock people.

    Re: First Preseason Poll Released

    Kansas can lose all their players and the first string waterboy, and still be rated in the top 25. Not that they still aren't deserving but it just sucks. They reload...with our recruit...Appleton.
