Based on that picture it will be " super size that order"
Looks like this sports writer is a voting member for the AP and has VCU at #9. Not sure he realizes that Shannon and MAC gives us great post power. Either way, this is the highest preseason vote I've seen for VCU. That's some respect.
Hey DB, is Cormac Gordon from the Staten Island Advance an official voting member? He just posted this just now and has VCU at #9. This would be the highest ranking so far.
Indeed he is! That's the highest ranking to date! Nice catch.
FWIW folks, you can see all 65 voters here if you want to check: http://collegebasketball.ap.org/poll (click on 'By Voter' button to see them all).
Here's Gordon's Top 25:

Randy Rosetta (The Times-Picayune): No A-10 teams ranked
Jeff Allums with the Bean Gazette has VCU at #1.
Average all those out and it comes out to 13.8. I'd certainly take 13-14.
Even with the non-rank? That's really impressive.
So it looks like we'll definitely be top 20. Maybe top 15.
The more rankings that come out, the worse Randy Rosetta looks.
Worse is possible?
