Bam! Cue the "preseason polls are meaningless" comments.
Our boys come in at #22. Expected replies:
-"Seems about right"
-"What does it say when we return 17 starters and are only 22nd? How the mighty have fallen."
-"I love flying under the radar!!!!1!!!!1!!! Let's git 'em boys!!!"
Not a whole lot of shockers here. LSU seems a little high. I don't think Illinois will finish ahead of us but whatever. Not sure if Michigan deserves to be ranked. I think we could be a little higher but I'm not complaining too much. I can't help but wonder how much of these polls are just based on last year? Seems like that happens a lot....see: Penn State being ranked going into 2003.
I just noticed that every fanpost of mine involves some sort of ranking.
