…and we’re back

 

208 days.

Almost 7 months.

Yes, we’ve been dormant.

We’ve fallen behind on our duties.

We neglected to finish our season last year.

But we’re baaaack.

We’ll start things off easy with the release of the preseason coaches’ poll from USA Today.

Number one can wait, we’re jumping right to no. 12, your University of North Carolina Tar Heels.

Can’t say we’re disappointed with a decent preseason rank considering we lost four players to the first round of the NBA draft last year.

It still hurts a bit to be staring up at Duke at no. 8 and…gasp…what we all figured would happen, NC State at no. 6.

As disconcerting as it may be to have those two above the Boys, it’s nice to see quality basketball return to all three points in the triangle.

Also nice to see the ACC being well represented in the poll. Well, at least in the top 12 positions.

If you care, Indiana and Cody Zeller top the poll followed by Louisville, UK, Ohio State and Michigan.
