    I think it loses credibility when they put Rhode Island in the top 25. They didn't even make it to the tournament how the hell are they top 25 material?

    Well, good thing it's a "Way too Early" one. Taking it seriously is not expected.

    Bonus: Notre Dame also never shows up.

    Not even a sniff in the also considered? I'm a little surprised.

    This is a good thing, not a bad thing in many ways.

    Shoot, I don't blame anyone for not throwing us in them. Truthfully, I could make a good argument either way. Lets face it, we do have some pretty big question marks on next year's team still, particularly in the post. Also, when I say post, I'm less concerned about our scoring question marks down there than I am with our defense and rebounding question marks down there. Maybe things will work out great and we end up top 25 when all is said and done... maybe not.

    Going to be sad if we don't get the chance to defend the streak the first week. The program has earned a 20-25 spot for next season at worst.

    I'd be shocked if we weren't in the first AP poll.

    Wichita State getting mentioned? Rhode Island and Creighton in the top 25? I wouldn't read too far into this.

    Unfortunately, I would take that bet. I don't think we'll be ranked to start the year, and I think that's reasonable. We have huge question marks in the post and just lost our highest rated recruit. Still, we've got a chance next year because we'll have some great guards. As long as we're ranked at the end of the season!

    I would be on board with it being reasonable if we didn't have the third longest streak of being ranked. We have earned the benefit of the doubt. Let us lose it don't force us to lose it.

    I know. It's a shame we won't be able to keep that awesome streak by earning it from week one. I just don't see it. We are thin up front with talent from losing mid-majors coming in. Hope those guys can step up. At least CBB is a guard's game.

    I would put the chances of ISU not being ranked to start the season under 10%.

    I don't think Rhode Island is a bad pick for a spot in the 20s. They'll be talented and experienced (have 3
    guys ISU recruited under Hoiberg plus an Indiana transfer). They did poorly last year due to injuries. I think ISU should be there as well.

    They must know about our front court situation.
