AP Top 25 Ballot

Just e-mailed my Associated Press Top 25 ballot in for this week's poll and it's amazing that I had to move Penn State up three spots even though it didn't prove much blasting a cream puff like Coastal Carolina. Nevertheless, that's the way these early-season polls play out. If you want to project, there's a good chance the Lions will be ranked near the top ten by the time the non-conference portion of their schedule is over. Because let's face it, Syracuse and Temple should be walkovers and I'm starting the get the sneaky suspicion that Oregon State isn't going to pose much of a threat. That's why the polls shouldn't start until conference play begins. That's when the contenders and pretenders are unmasked. Here's my Top 25 in its entirety. The full poll will probably be released sometime this afternoon.
