The preseason Coaches' Poll has been released and, through some gross oversight, Xavier has not been ranked. The full table can be found below:
|RANK||TEAM||RECORD||POINTS||1ST PLACE VOTES|
|17||San Diego State||31-5||251||0|
|22||Southern Methodist Univ.||27-10||149||0|
The only ranked team in the Big East is Villanova at number 12. Though not listed here, Providence and Georgetown also received votes. Preseason polls are even more useless than verbal commitments, so don't take this with a grain of salt so much as just not taking it at all. Still, it's a look at how one group of people sees the field right now and a reminder of the impending beginning of the season.
Also, UK as preseason number one? Remember the last time that happened? I do.
