The powers that be at ESPN have unveiled the first Top 25 poll.
Seems fairly legit to have Gtown at 21 as they come off a horrific season (special thanks to ESPN for reminding everyone of the way that season ended).
Worth noting that although some commentators believe the Big East will be down, in addition to Gtown, the poll includes Nova at 6, WVU at 9, UConn at 14, Louisville at 23, and Cuse at 25 (always comforting to take delight in issues that other programs have had over the past year) and the league should remain strong. The only other local team listed is the mighty Terps at 26.
Guess the only thing left to do is plot the proper Titanic sign for when Nolan Smith leads #8 Duke to the unfriendly confines of the Verizon Center.
