Bogus. The Seawolves finished in the Top 20 last year. With the addition of Coker and a few other top transfers, and the return of key players, even 15th is suspect. But 24th is just plain whack.

We played under the radar last season and will probably do that again this  season.  Since Liberty hasn't even gotten a mention yet  Im sure we will be  fine.

Id love to get upset about this, but polls are polls.  I think they count more in 1A, but really, since we have the conference to win and the tourney to play, i think they polls are only counted as far as the seedings may go for the tournament.  And im not even sure they factor it in, and how much at that.

There are 29,413,039 corporations in America; but only one Chairman of the Board.

At least we are ranked... Last year we weren't ranked in most pre-season polls (I remember Phil Steele was one of the few that ranked us 15) . These early pre-season ranks are not as legit. Lets wait for the August pre-season rankings which are close to the season and more popular...

This is going to be a great season. But we might have to win the Big South anyways to get into the NCAAs. Same drill all over again.

I think it's good that we're getting mentioned and people are aware of us. If we deserve to ranked higher, and I think we should be top 10, we'll prove it in the fall.

  Preseason rankings are garbage, just look at last weekend w/Loyola in lax not ranked and won it all. I would rather win and move up then be ranked high and have everything you do held against you. Another lax reference but look what happened w/our 2011 team they were peseason 5 went 10-4 and no playoffs. As far as having to win conf. to get in, that's what you are supposed to do. Whenever you rely on pollsters and commitees to get in you almost always get screwed. At large bids do not get home games either. I will gladly take the low ranking and go w/the fact that our team is real good and they will do there talking on Saturday's. I would love to go to another home playoff game cause anyone who was there knows that it was off the hook at the Brook that day. They are building something special let it play out and in a couple yrs we will be talking about better things.

I suppose Coker wasn't on it because he didn't play at this level last year. For all practical purposes, add him to the first team (second team at least).

That is the only reason he didnt get a mention as an AA.  Hopefully he plays up to what he did last year in the Big 10  and we will win quite a few games !

The 2012 roster is up on goseawolves.org now. A couple things I noticed: Jevahn Cruz is no longer on the roster, Darell Hatcher isn't on the roster, Masengo Kabono is back on the roster.

Cruz may be redshirting, which would be great for both him and the program. Glad to hear about Kabono. I'm not sure what his issue was/is...with his size and Maryland pedigree, he should be tearing up offensive lines.

   Cruz already redshirted in '10. Unless he got hurt but then you would have to apply for an additional redshirt year.

Looks like Cruz is gone they gave his #4 to the transfer Avery Graham.  Although you can have a double # in college as long as one is off. and one is on def.  Hatcher may not have made the grades and is headed to JUCO.  They have 17 freshman listed so I would think that they are all headed to camp. Most should get redshirted though. Also two incoming freshman have same # as upperclassman but both are on the same side of the ball so expect them to be redshirted ( D' Amato & Marino ).
