Yea they still have a ton of talent, I just think that there are better team out there. We don't have a proven PG, I don't know who the 2 guard will be maybe Strickland? Then we got a load of Forward, with Davis down low.

Rankings mean nothing, I just don't think they are a top ten team.

Pretty good list, but I have to agree with unicar15 that Louisville needs to drop several spots...

Well its preseason but the only one that it would effect is your #1 because you pick your #1 based on who you think is most ready to win the national championship. The reason I questioned your Louisville pick is because they are losing their two best players and aren't really bringing in that great of a class...Thats all.

I'm a huge Louisville homer, and I agree that they need to be around the 8-13 range.

I mean I guess you guys are correct, but my reasoning is how long before the media gives Pitino the preseason ranking he deserves? I mean granted he lost his two best players, but it seems like he loses at least one best player every year and still finishes out the season in the top 5

I gave a top 12, hard to get those 7 - 13 teams in there since they are all so close talent wise. Clear Top 4 if you ask me Though. Texas will be really strong with a good class and some nice returning players. Mst. should be excellent, Kansas with the recruiting class they have coming in and Nova rounding it out.

I'm not going to do a list because I honestly haven't really looked into every team and who stayed in the draft and who withdrew, but Xavier could be top 5 if Derrick Brown returns. That's unlikely however. Even without, its not unlikely for them to not be in the top 10.

Carolina will still be good but who is going to be THE guy this year?? They have Ed Davis, Zeller, and Thompson but arguably their 3 best players all play the same position and they are all big men. Typically when you look for a go-to-guy it isn't a 4 or a 5...its a 1 or a 2. Their PGs and SGs are going to be Marcus Ginyard and a bunch of guys that are really young so I just don't see UNC as a top 5 team. They definitely have a team capable of making a Sweet 16 run but that is about as far as I would go with them...

Henson is going to have to be like Kevin Durant for them to finish that high IMO. When Texas has guys like Avery Bradley, Jordan Hamilton coming in and Damion James coming back. Nova has Reynolds, Fisher, Redding, and Yarou...but CBS also has Butler at #11 which is a joke IMO.
