The AP preseason poll is out and HOLY CRAP SDSU IS RANKED?!

After all the hand wringing and masochism San Diego State has it's preseason moment in the sun by being nationally ranked for the first time in school history.

And it can all come crashing down on ESPN November 16th when the Aztecs visits 12th ranked Gonzaga* in Spokane. Just remember that, citizen. So in the meantime, enjoy the exposure. We have Point Loma and Long Beach State in the between-time to chew on.

* EDITOR'S NOTE: We were going to liveblog the Gonzaga game but right now no just in case we get killed.

It's getting closer...

College basketball invades everywhere. Even ESPN's ubiquitous college football GameDay. Missouri supports Kentucky's Enes Kanter, y'all.

So sing songs of praise. Enes be the best since DeMarcus Cousins.

2) Duke
3) Pittsburgh
4) Baylor
5) Villanova
6) West Virginia
7) Kansas State
8) Kansas
9) Syracuse
10) Illinois

Notable exceptions:

Purdue - Without Hummel the Boilermakers turn into an also-ran team. No snarkiness here, just a sad loss.

San Diego State - This is an omission out of fear for the most part. But you guys are SDSU alumni and fans way to show your support you guys suck for not backing your team go to hell OMG Aztecs #1!!! Yeah but we've been here before. Until the Aztecs give us a marquee win, beating a non conference ranked team which they have never done, we will always ALWAYS reserve praise.

No, you can't.

Other notables: None. We did this ranking sober believe it or not. But these things are about as useless as tits on a boar.

5 predictions for the upcoming season

1) Duke/UNC will be undefeated when they face each other

2) Duke will have another late season collapse (always bet on black)

3) Marquette will inexplicably make the NCAA Tourney (again)

4) Oregon will prove the critics right.  Then wrong.  Then right

<-- 5) Distractions will prove to be too much for Rick "Quick Draw" Pitino as losing season prompts Louisville fans to demand new coach

3 more weeks to go.
