    I'd have been surprised if we were not in the top ten. We're gonna be damned good. Again.

    Not to throw cold water on this thread....but is the Bleachers'
    any more credible when it comes to basketball than football?

    Well, as usual, the Rich Stay Rich. Note that almost all of the Top 10 is comprised of Teams that are almost always either in the Preseason or Postseason Top 10. Wisconsin is a bit of an interloper, as is Wichita State.

    Here is the rest of Bleacher's Top 25:

    1. Kentucky
    2. Wisconsin
    3. Kansas
    4. Arizona
    5. North Carolina
    6. Duke
    7. Florida
    8. Wichita St
    9. Virginia
    10. Louisville
    11. Texas
    12. Villanova
    13. Iowa St
    14. Gonzaga
    15. Oklahoma
    16. SMU
    17. Nebraska
    18. Kansas St
    19. Michigan
    20 Iowa
    21. Harvard
    22. VCU
    23. Connecticut
    24. Michigan St
    25. San Diego St

    Florida potentially plays #2, #3, 5, 15, 23, & #1 (2-3 times). Another challenging schedule for UF!
    I am surprised that there are not more ranked SEC teams like Arkansas, ?Missouri, LSU; heck even Georgia!
    Some other surprising omissions: Syracuse, UCLA, Tennessee, Stanford, Baylor.

    Ranked Big 10 teams (5): #24, 20, 19, 17, #2
    Ranked Big 12 teams (5): #18, 15, 13, 11, #3
    Ranked ACC teams (4): #10, 9, 6, 5
    Rank Pac 12 teams (1): #4
    Ranked SEC teams (2): #7, #1

    It's just a preseason ranking. No credibility is required.

    Maybe but after Florida's tremendous season last year, I would have ranked Florida in the top 4-5! Many of its players will be back (Frazier, DFS, Hill, & C. Walker) along with a good class and some good transfers!

    Still.....considering what we lost in those 4 starters. To be ranked 7th is really a testiment to the program
