Preaseason AP Poll!

Posted by rtmsf on November 2nd, 2007

Same drill as last week…

AP Poll - Preseason 07-08

Quick thoughts:

  • UNC still #1, with a clearer mandate in this poll, with 5 more #1 votes than UCLA
  • The top 10 teams are in exactly the same order as the Coaches Preseason Poll
  • Georgetown’s #1 vote replaces Kansas’s single #1 vote (from the coaches poll)
  • Variance is minimal – the biggest difference is NC State (#21 AP; #24 Coaches)
  • The only different teams in the Top 25? K-State is #25 in the AP, Villanova #25 in the Coaches (each is #26 in the other poll)
  • Mining the OTR shows a few differences of opinion:
    • Huggins’ WVU squad got 20 media votes but nary a single coaches vote
    • Mizzou (8) and Vandy (6) are a couple of the other notables that received some media love but none from the coaches; on the other side of things, Bradley (7) and Utah (4) were the top vote-getters from the coaches that got nada from the media
  • Nothing else too exciting that we didn’t already mention in the Coaches Poll review, although we still think USC and NC State are incredibly overrated
