    1. Tennessee
    2. Kentucky
    3. Gonzaga
    4. Nevada
    5. Kansas
    6. North Carolina
    7. Duke
    8. Virginia
    9. Auburn
    10. Oregon

    I honestly had a tough time with the top 4. I really think there's a good chance Gonzaga and Nevada could be the two best teams in the country. They are both going to be loaded.

    Kansas is way too low.

    I have no idea where to put Nevada until we know which 2 players are leaving the program.

    I think Tennessee needs to be in there.

    This seems like a really weak year on paper.

    My reasoning for Kansas is that they lost 4/5 of their starting line up. I'm not as high on the Lawson twins either, and outside of Udoka everyone else has no experience.

    My guess for Nevada is that it won't matter. No matter who they lose they'll still have extreme depth. And their whole team is upperclassman minus their McDonald's AA they're bringing in.

    I have Tennessee on the list.

    This will be a weak year IMO, as well. The incoming freshman class isn't as good, so freshman reliant teams will take a step back. I have UK at 2 because I think they're going to get Travis from Stanford.

    I didn't even realize you had Tenn at 1....wow, I just moved down beyond that. Epic Fail. LOL. Damn. That's just my bad.

    I like the lawson kids alot (one of them was a top player in the AAC) and getting Moore is a nice get as well.

    I can get it with the all freshamn backcourt. Vick really made a mistake. He could've thrived as the top outside threat.

    I'm curious hwo much better Udoka gets. It seems like his biggest issue is going to be lack of BBIQ. Hence why he fouls so much. But man, Kansas was great with on the floor vs. off it.

    Wow, Vols at #1.

    I think that they have the talent and experience to be the #1 team in the country, but I don't think they can handle it. I don't trust Rick Barnes in spots like this. Rest of the list looks pretty respectable. My list would be somewhat similar.

    I think he's done a great job. The roster isn't filled with 4 and 5 stars and to be a preseason favorite going into next year, is pretty good.

    Barnes gets a bad rap. He’s turned things around pretty well at Tennessee

    And it’s not like Shaka is lighting the world on fire at Texas

    Texas has so many resources that you have to question anyone who doesn’t light it up there, in basically any sport

    He's been a winner everywhere he's been;

    3 out of 6 years at Providence he went to the NCAA's

    3 out of 4 years at Clemson he went to the NCAA's

    And every year but once at Texas he went to the NCAA's

    Don't sleep on Michigan, they got a talented class coming in for once and some good returning players. B1G won't be as strong this year and I expect Indiana to be the most improved team to possibly win the conference.
