Not bad for an unranked preseason team.
Link? because I am lazy.
I would have ranked uconn at 6, but otherwise agree with your poll. Well done sir.I release my Top 25 about an hour ahead of the AP... They were pretty close to mine. All the same teams except I have WVU in at 25(they 28th) and they have SDSU in while they were basically my #26 team.
They have a nice win at Oregon but that's about it. They get Alabama and Virginia in December before conference play that doesn't seem that challenging this year.Why is Houston number 1? Come on man! They have yet to play a ranked team as far as I can tell. Just their weak schedule to this point should disqualify them from being number 1!
Seattle and Sam Houston are off the board.3 unbeatens play tonight with 2 underdogs:
Mississippi St -24.5 vs Omaha
Sam Houston St +4.5 @ Nevada
Seattle +5 @ Washington
Epitome of talking heads not knowing much at the start of a season.
Rankings matter for exposure and perception of a program with recruits and casual fans … there are plenty of news and social media that literally ONLY cover the top 25 out of convenience. Blows my mind how many fans practically take pride in broadcasting that they don’t care about rankings, lol.Who cares really
Just keep winning
