Let the countdown to March Madness beginby Coach Lilly 1.27.15
This week I saw the following:
–Enigmatic Dick Vitale (aka Dickie V) on ESPN’s SportsCenter
–An Associated Press top 25 poll (and I’m not talking about football)
–A dog wearing a Kentucky Wildcats sweater
The dog in the Kentucky sweater is what made it official. There was no way that this dog was wearing that sweater to represent the dreadful Wildcat football team. It could only mean one thing.
It’s college hoops time, baby!
So who’s the team to beat this year? If you ask the experts who make up the AP poll, it’s the Indiana Hoosiers. Analysts say that Cody Zeller and team look to bring the Hoosiers back to title contention this year, a place the team has not been since the Bobby Knight era (their last championship was 1987).
But it won’t be an easy road ahead; not with perrenial title contenders Kentucky, Kansas, and Duke all looming in the preseason top 10 and all reloading their roster with young talent.
So what’s the official top 10 preseason poll look like? Check it out below.
1 – Indiana
2 – Louisville
3 – Kentucky
4 – Ohio State
5 – Michigan
6 – North Carolina State
7 – Kansas
8 – Duke
9 – Syracuse
10 – Florida
