MyBB Slightly Less Way Too Early But Still Way Too Early Mid-Major Madness Power Rankings
New Mexico State drops one spot down to 19 while GCU jumps into the Top 25. Things that stand out to me: there is a team who had a losing record last year in the Top 10, somehow SDSU is in the Top 25, they clearly think Bako still needs some work, and the Rhodies are in the top 3 with a signing class that includes DeWayne's younger brother, Daron. The rest of the rankings can be found here.

I have absolutely no problem, flying under the radar.

Currently mobile....away from the house or on "the throne."

I mean I still think you guys are one of he Top 35 mid-major programs, so I think it is more disrespect than flying under the radar.

Yah, I understand. I tend to agree (even though I think all this early speculation from sites galore is just grease to keep writers and websites busy with traffic). It always cracks me up each year (offseason), to see who all the ballyhoo is lavished on, and how they end up finishing. God bless the message board! 04-cheers

I'm thrilled, that the WAC's profile was raised last year. Benefits all here. Let's keep it up.

I find it interesting that NMSU is still ranked in this poll given all our defections. Alot will be riding on AJ Harris' ability to run the team and Ndir's ability to stay healthy. I think NMSU is solid in the front court with Chuha carrying most of the interior scoring load. Marlon Jones should be a big help this season. NMSU just needs more bodies to fill the wings.

I think this is more banking on Jans coaching ability as an x's and o's guy and that he will be able pick up where he who must not be named left off, but I do what you said is a slight factor.

I have higher expectations for the other Jones. Watching Jemerrio play is like looking into Oscar Frayer's future. Both are freakishly athletic & can/will be gamechangers in at least a handful of contests this season.

I would love to see Majerle stick O on J. Jones for a game, just to see them go at it. Was really surprised it didn't happen when Jemerrio was eating GCU's lunch on the boards last season. I honestly thought Frayer was the only player who could keep a body on him. That didn't happen & we all saw the results.

I think that part of the reason is that he wanted to keep Oscar's length on the perimeter. His numbers in blocks and boards would be inflated even more if he moved him to play inside. I also think he needs to bulk up if he wants to play inside some more.

The only problem with that is he is a 25% 3 point shooter. He will need to improve that stat.
