Everybody just settin’ Juwan up to look like he has massively overachieved.
After seeing that “Other receiving votes” section I think I can officially say Michigan is underrated. As many votes as LIBERTY?

Let’s see if Juwan can coach them up…not bad though, talent alone puts them in the top 35-40. That’s what I call striking distance…play with a chip fellas!

Don’t get LSU being ranked.
I love that in May everyone had Memphis top 5 for whatever reason, then everyone realized they have an unproven coach and only 2 top 50 recruits coming in so they moved them back to like 15ish where they still have no business being.
I love being underrated, I hope the fuels the flame for the boys!

I’m definitely not one of the most optimistic people here about this years team. But teams that for sure should not have >= the amount of votes Michigan has:
And there are several others that I get why they put over Michigan, but I think are wrong or the gap just doesn’t make sense to me.

But overall I’d say it’s good for Juwan Howard that no one really expects much. If the team disappoints it’s NBD at least on the national level. If they’re good the hype train will be massive.
What do we think the ranking would be if Beilein hadn’t left? Looking at this list, I would guess somewhere in the 18-22 range.
I promised myself I wouldn’t be upset when we inevitably were not included in the top 25… But TWO votes???

Numbers five and eight remind me why it’s been increasingly fun, since I live in Tallahassee, to get to those games and root for FSU. An underdog that often overachieves at home.
Whoever voted for Colgate should lose their credentials.

Colgate is going to be pretty good this year. I’m all for throwing a bone to a mid-major that should be good.
Me too. New Mexico State should’ve taken out Auburn in the first round, and returns nearly everyone, Liberty should be solid again, St. Mary’s too. Vermont. Colgate will absolutely not be a top 25 team at any point this year.

Do they still have Adonal Foyle?
