Since there is no other new content so far today, I just wanted to point out that the 65 media members voting for the Associated Press Top 25 men's basketball poll must submit their preseason top 25 ballots, along with their preseason All-America team ballots by today (October 21), yet the Associated Press will not publish the poll until October 31, and also will not publish the preseason All-America team until November 4.

Luckily, some of the media members are gracious to share their ballots long before then. Here are a few:


Jerry Carino: Gonzaga #14 http://blogs.mycentraljersey.com/hoopshaven/2013/10/20/my-ap-preseason-top-25-ballot-all-american-team/
Mike Barber: Gonzaga #15 http://vtsports.blogs.timesdispatch.com/2013/10/21/my-ap-college-basketball-preseason-top-25-ballot/
David Borges: Gonzaga #15 http://borgesblognhr.blogspot.com/2013/10/my-preseason-ap-top-25-poll.html
Randy Rosetta: Gonzaga #21 http://www.nola.com/lsu/index.ssf/2013/10/my_pre-season_ap_basketball_po.html
Bret Strelow: Gonzaga Unranked http://blogs.fayobserver.com/accbasketball/October-2013/AP-preseason-Top-25-ballot,-plus-All-America-teams


Just need to see 60 more.

I think 20 is about right. 14 seems a touch high.

Bret Strelow: Gonzaga Unranked http://blogs.fayobserver.com/accbask...-America-teams

I wonder if Bret is voting an all ACC ticket?

If your blog is ACC basketball, just how objective will you be? Not many teams from the West, and then just the usual suspects!

haha. Who is this Strelow guy? I guess it is a mans's right to share his opinion, but outliers and obvious biases are suspect. At the very least, noticed and commented on. If his main criteria is conference affiliation or how many starters a team loses, we might be unranked. But IMO that isn't the criteria that should carry the most weight.
