I agree placing UConn ahead of S. Carolina but if you go according to speculation, not what happened last season, how could anyone say Washington is ranked tied for #25 when they have nothing.

When I look at a couple of teams I wonder why they are ranked as high as they are but then I look at those ranked below them and don't see anyone clearly better.

The only problem I have with these preseason polls is that several of these teams will play a bunch of cupcakes at home, go 8-0 while several teams that start out outside the top 25 have a hard time getting votes despite playing tougher schedules.

Agree. Washington was picked last by at least 9 of 11 coaches in the Pac 12 coaches poll. Maybe some of those Eastern coaches didn't realize that Kelsey Plum graduated (as did Osahor, Collier and Corral). I suspect this will be corrected when they lose to BYU, Ohio St., Creighton and Texas in their first 5 games.

On the other hand this means that 6 Pac 12 teams are in the top 25, more than any other conference. There are 5 from the ACC, 4 each from the SEC and Big 12, 3 from the Big 10 and 2 each from the Big East and AAC.

Washington at #25 is really hilarious. They are struggling to even put five players on the court. Their PG looks like it will be a senior walk on who has never played in a game!

Anyway, bearman I sent you a PM.

Washington is really going to be hurting now that they've lost Natalie Romeo for an unknown length of time due to an "undisclosed injury".

The coaches picking Washington so high validates my opinion that they seem to know less than most WCBB fans who follow the game. Makes sense because coaches other than their league and the teams they play in preseason I doubt they even have the time to follow other teams. They are probably at the same level as non sport news people in respect to knowledge about WCBB.

Nice to see the Jackrabbits getting some votes. They could make some noise this year.

Anyone who voted for UW is pretty clueless. If the season started today, we might have just one player available off the bench and we'd likely be starting two former walk-ons. Coach Wynn was a bit mistaken when she spoke about Moser's experience--Moser has played some minutes, but I doubt if any came in a game when the outcome had not yet been decided. Moser is not just a former walk-on; she's a former practice player who was promoted to the real team halfway through the 2015-2016 season.

UW has labeled Romeo's absence as "due to medical reasons." Wynn was pretty deliberate in providing no other information, citing HIPAA regulations. She gave at least a bit of information regarding all of the other players who have missed practices due to injuries, as well as information on the two players who had took medical retirements. This is pure speculation, but based on the lack of information, it seems likely that her absence is not a basketball-related injury. Whatever it is, I just wish her the best.

I have high hopes for this new coaching staff...but Husky fans are going to have to be patient. It may take a few years.

From what I understand Oregon St. has revealed a new College Pole as well. Their 6'8" transfer center Joanna Grymek. Rolling Eyes

I'm really not a fan of the Mid-Major poll. Maybe they should only put FCS teams in the Top 25 poll, only FBS teams in the Mid-Major Top 25 poll and then non-football schools in the Low-Major Top 25 poll.

Wel, since we can't get any love, let alone any NOTICE, from the vote casters, it seems only fair.....

Go Jackrabbits. With Macy back, this team could make some noise after almost beating Stanford 2 season ago.

I don't think Week 6 is quite ready. Notice how it switched your url back to 5?

It wouldn't make sense for OSU to drop this week for that loss to Duke many days ago.
