It says something about how weak the rest of the conference is expected to be if the top team (SBU) is projected to be 135th best in the nation. NCAAs or not, there's no reason they shouldn't be a top 75 team at this point in the program's development.

I tend to agree with you, as well, ry1link.  But, don't forget that SBU is going to begin this season with 4 starters from last year no longer on the roster.  I think it's amazing for a sports writer to pick them to reach the NCAA preseason based upon that fact.  To rank them above no. 100 without having seen how this newly assembled team performs, would certainly have been going out on a long limb..  If the new guys perform as their capabilities indicate they might, I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually reach that no. 75 ranking that you talk about later this season.
