You know that college basketball season is just around the corner when the teams and conferences have their media days and when the official preseason polls come out. Well, check, and check.
Not only did Ohio State have its media day a few weeks ago, but the Big Ten got the gang together to hold the annual conference media days for both the men’s and women’s programs in Indy a couple of weeks ago as well. Then, early this week, the Associated Press released its preseason college basketball poll Monday and you might be a bit underwhelmed and disappointed with where the national media has the Buckeyes before all the fun gets started.
So where exactly did the media peg OSU in the preseason? How about just inside the top 20 at No. 17? That’s not exactly where most had Ohio State in many of the early forecasts and mid-summer look ahead to the season, but the loss of Duane Washington to the NBA process seems to have changed a lot of folks’ minds nationally.
So how about the rest of the AP Top 25?
