"The honor of being the top projected mid-major team belongs to Gonzaga. Despite losing All-Americans Kyle Wiltjer and Domantas Sabonis, the Bulldogs should not miss a beat with the addition of transfers Nigel Williams-Goss (from Washington), Jordan Mathews (from Cal) and Johnathan Williams III (from Missouri). Saint Mary’s returns nearly everyone from a team that finished in the top 40 in BPI last season, so the Gaels should challenge Gonzaga for the WCC title."

They feel the same way.

Should be fun.

Nobody has played anybody yet. How can there possibly be BPI rankings? I mean preseason polls are one thing, guesswork, popularity contests, whatever. But something that is supposed to be systematic but has no actual data to use...what's the point?

It's fun to read and sells ads on a website?

I think SMC 's coach is one of the most underrated coaches in america. He does more with less than any coach I can think of and does it well.

Fun to talk about?

Clickbait, fun to talk about, I can understand both of those as far as polls or bracketology, etc. But a statistical analysis when there is no data to plug in...it's just baffling to me.

He needs to do it in places other than just Moraga.
