    I'm somewhat surprised they did not land 22-25, but they certainly have more than enough time to prove they belong....and they will get to show that in a hurry if they belong or not. With the program being down so long, apparently voters still want to see more evidence.

    Kentucky ranked #1 is a joke. Just more proof that pre-season polls are stupid.

    In modern college BB, having the best FR class, like Kentucky does, puts you in serious contention for the national title. Just goes to show how the quality of play in general is very low in the sport.

    I thought we would be ranked 20-25th but that's ok. A good start to the non conference and it won't be long until we crack the top 25.

    We'll be ranked before B1G play starts, easy.

    Agreed, but thankfully they don't have the same bearing on deciding a post season champion like they do in football!

    I'm surprised. I bet the AP poll will have us in.

    Looking at the potential first two B4A matchups:
    Tennessee - 30th
    UTEP - unranked​
    Xavier - unranked

    The other teams are:
    Kansas - 6
    Villanova - 39t
    USC - unranked
    Wake Forest - unranked​

    The Hawks need to win the first one, beat Tennessee, and stay close with Kansas. Do that and Iowa will move up. BEAT Kansas and it will be move up real fast.

    GO HAWKS!!!

    I am calling for a boycott of USA Today by all loyal & level-headed Hawk fans so who's with me? We'll show those jerks not to mess with The Nation!

    Agree with the big Zamboni on this one! Hawkeyes have the bullet and are headed Up the Charts

    I see they put Virginia in front of us. I guess beating them on their home floor by double digits last year did nothing for us.

    Preseason polls are a better indicator of NCAA tournament success than the final regular season polls.

    I've been boycotting them my entire life.
