Preseason predictions
Since it is after Labor Day, you'll start seeing more college basketball stuff. Just saw my first college basketball magazine today, Athlon.

Their predictions for the CAA were:

1. CofC
2. Towson
3. Elon
4. UNCW
5. Hofstra
6. Northeastern
7. W&M
8. Delaware
9. Drexel
10. JMU

There was a lot of ink about CofC. Pat Skerry says, "IMO, they may be the best team coming back since I've been in the Colonial."

Chealey of CofC was Preseason POY.

First team was Brantley (CofC), Cacok (UNCW), Chealey (CofC), Seibring (Elon), Wright-Foreman (Hofstra).

2nd team was Daly (UD), Dawkins (Elon), Gustys (Hofstra), Morsell (Towson), Riller (CofC).

RE: Preseason predictions
No doubt CofC is the favorite going in. You think Skerry is sandbagging a little, though?

RE: Preseason predictions
For all the years we were underseeded in predictions, this year we're picked fourth?

RE: Preseason predictions
This isn't a bad list IMO. I would go with:

1. CofC
2. Elon
3. Towson
4. UNCW
5. Hofstra
6. W&M
7. Drexel
8. Delaware
9. Northeastern
10. JMU

W&M is a wildcard to me, I can see them doing better but can also see them really struggling. I think NU lost too much and is too young to really compete this season. Drexel and Delaware are marginally better than last season. JMU seems like the obvious choice for worst team. CofC is the clear favorite.

I think it's high for UNCW honestly. New Coach, lost several impact players and one of the best players in the league.

I think our floor is still fairly high, relative to the rest of the league, primarily because of the presence of Cacok. Many of the teams ranked below us have even more significant question marks than we do.

4th sounds about right to me. Even if McGrath just rolls the ball out there we have enough talent to win more than half of our CAA games.

I'm cautiously optimistic. We have seen in the past that we can have talent, but with a crappy coach still stink! I'm not saying he is, or will be, that's to be determined. I just think 4th is a stretch!

It's not a stretch. It's just that there is a fairly wide range of outcomes so no one really knows.

If no one really knows, generally, you don't get placed in the top 4! Listen, i hope it's right i'm just not sure how anyone could make that prediction at this point.
