Take it to Vegas: Preseason Rankings and Tourney Predictions

Before or around the time every season begins, we like to attempt to take our turns being the national pundits and make a few predictions of our own.  In this post you will find our Preseason Top 25's, below, and our NCAA Tournament predictions from the Sweet Sixteen onwards after the jump.  There will probably be plenty of points of contention.  I can already see some now with both of our rankings and tournament projections.  We'd love to see some of our readers chip in and offer up their Top 10 or 25 teams or even their Final Four when it is all said and done.  The great thing about this post is that it can be erased once March rolls around...or even next week just in case our Top 25's get blown up!  We hope you enjoy...
