What do you think? Apparently it is based on predictions on which players will leave their teams, although we never know until we find out. To me it seems that UNC is a bit way too high at 11, they should not be preseason top 25 at all having lost Zeller, Henson, Barnes and Marshall(perhaps McAdoo too if he pulls a Marvin Williams on coach Roy). Kentucky is quite an uncertainty here, Coach Cal can easily make it no.1 preseason team by adding Nerlens Noel and/or Shabazz Muhammad, or they may not end up in top 5.
