ESPN Way too Early Top 25 Basketball Poll has LSU at 24.
LINK

SEC Schools:

3. Kentucky
4. Gators
24. LSU

ETA on LSU:

quote:

When it looked like LSU's head coach and entire starting five could be gone, the Tigers appeared to be headed for a tough season. But Will Wade was reinstated after a suspension in March, and Javonte Smart, Skylar Mays and Emmitt Williams all removed their names from the NBA draft. The losses of Tremont Waters and Nazreon Reid undoubtedly hurt; Waters was one of the best point guards in the country, and Reid had lottery talent when focused. But with the aforementioned trio going back to Baton Rouge, as well as the return of rotation guard Marlon Taylor and the addition of five-star forward Trendon Watford, Wade has enough talent on the roster to stay in the mix at the top of the SEC.

Will Wade, the best coach on LSU's staff, is about to take the Tigers to the Promised Land

Florida has a great roster but mike White isn’t good enough to be a top 5 team.

Would be great if USC and Utah state can stay in the top 25 all year. VCU just missed this list. Those games along with a game vs. a top big 12 team would give us a pretty good non-conference schedule.

IDK they were a tough out for us (obviously) even with average talent last year. I think White has done a pretty good job.

Think this is fair placement for LSU, but it's good to be in the preseason mix.

White took them to an Elite 8. With the talent they have, no reason to think he isn't capable of coaching them to that level.

Will Wade, in year three, can't crack preseason top 20.

WDS ? He did it in two. Keep screaming if it gives you relief.

The preseason ranking, ESPECIALLY in basketball, doesn't mean hardly anything. Wade appears to be one of those coaches whose teams get better as the year progresses, which imo is the mark of an excellent coach.I have little doubt we will finish with 25-30 wins this, and most years he is here.

Based upon? I'm not against will Wade. This is year 3 however. Basketball doesn't take years to rebuild. Some great schools practically rebuild every year. I grew up when final fours and elite 8's were a reality at lsu. If he is in fact the best coach on campus, he needs to lead his team to an elite finish. To me, they are about a 15-25 type team. Nice, but nothing elite. Again, I like and want will Wade to be our coach, but some of you have a tendency to go overboard with him.

Let me dumb it down for you. As will Wade heads into year 3, it appears he won't crack preseason top 20. Was hoping to be moving forward, not backwards.
