Xavier ranked 15th in coaches poll

It's hard to take preseason polls very seriously. With teams bringing in freshmen, transfers, and redshirts, while at the same time trying to fill holes, no one is a known quantity. That doesn't ever stop anyone from guessing though, and this year, Xavier is a beneficiary. A team that peaked at 20th last year after a 15-1 conference run has moved to 15th in the first coaches poll of this year. With five months of ball ahead of us, it's not a major story, but the boys from Victory Parkway are already garnering respect. Just for fun, have a look at last year's preseason top 25 compared to last year's postseason top 25. It's an inexact science at best.
