    Sorry, but I feel the ranking is way too high. Hopefully by the end of the year this may be correct, but I think UK will take a few “lumps” as they progress through the season.

      Not too high at all. Sorry just don’t see much gloom with this bunch. A lot of peeps saying were going to take some lumps early. I think we could maybe lose to Duke…but who else is going to match up with us in the pre-conference?

      Yea we probably will drop a couple in conference, but I’m seeing a 36-4, 37-3 type record with this group. Our 3 headed guard tandem along with our uber-athletic front line will just be too much in the end for just about anyone we play IMO.

    i’m not sure that it is way too high… i think an argument could be made for the cats to be anywhere from 1-5. outside of the top 5 would be too low, in my opinion.

      Well, it makes sense. How can you rank a bunch of deceivers, adulterers, and liars?

    The University of Tampa has a Division I men’s basketball team and it’s RANKED???

      good catch… that’s got to be a mistake for temple, right? i thought tampa was D-II

      Tampa is supposed to be Texas A&M, must have used abbreviation of TAM and messed up. Whoever made that mistake may need to brush up on their sports though.

    • Or South Florida? More likely Temple or A & M I guess.

    What people don’t understand is that pre-season rankings are where they expect you to be at the end of the season…Looks like another good season is ahead…but it’s time for 9!

    Stone Cold is so badass he’s not even a basketball player and he’s getting vote. And that’s the bottom line!!

      While maybe a little corny…I have to admit I did laugh at this one. Well done!

    Just curious – how can teams drop from the rankings if this is the first poll?



    • Booby Petrino

      Expectations of incoming class and remaining players from prior years.

      Yeah, but what rankings are they dropping from if this is the first?

      last year’s final rankings, i believe.

    Will UNC be bumped down to #2 when all of our players are eligible? Just curious.

    I thought the same thing. Who the flip is Tampa? That has to be Temple.

    When are the Tarheels going on probation for their decade long (at least) academic fraud case? Which is far worse than anything that went down in Louisville. Prostitution is legal in at least one state. Handing out diplomas for doing nothing sort of defeats the purpose of college and the NCAA in general!

      Exactly.

      It was 18 years, just FYI. From 1993 to 2011.

      What UNC is terrible, an absolute disgrace, but it is no where near as bad as what is going on at UL. Louisville basketball and football is the modern day Sodom and Gomorrah.

    I would like to know why Ricky 3 Stack’s mug is on the ESPN website article related to this….oh yeah because it is ESPN.

    Preseason means ****!!!! Hell, I wish we were ranked 351 so we can go out and prove these idiots wrong….again.

    UNLV will be pretty good I’m surprised that they didn’t even get a vote.

    Not that it really matters, but I don’t know why we are listed as 1(A) if UNC got 12 first place votes and we got 11. Probably ESPN trolling UNC fans for comments and site hits. It’s sad that I’m that cynical about ESPN these days…

    In other rankings, UofL ranks #1 in “Best colleges to get a lap dance and a handy”.
