My presason top 25
I'm voting in the Associated Press top 25 again. I'll be posting my poll in the Monday Week Guides in the upcoming weeks, but here's the first one.
1. Indiana - I'd like to be more original, but the Hoosiers are the best team on paper.
3. Ohio State
4. Kentucky - Like everyone else I'm giving Cal a lot of credit.
6. NC State - This is a lot of credit for a Mark Gottfried coached team, but there is a lot of talent here
9. Michigan State
14. North Carolina
17. San Diego State
20. UCLA - Recent struggles and eligibility and health issues have me skeptical about the Bruins
21. Saint Joseph’s - I have a feeling I'm going to be defending this pick a lot. I can live with that.
24. Notre Dame
