  • It’s never too early to start looking ahead to next season. Please note: These rankings are based off forecasting which players will be leaving college for the NBA and other professional ventures. This edition of the 18-19 Preseason Top 25 will be adjusted accordingly based on personnel situations that arise and develop throughout the off season.

    NOTE: The FanRag Sports Top 25 is based on early NBA Draft projections and will be updated through the spring.

    What would that look like with Jones as well.  Would one of the SG's listed play more PG?  Just curious how those minutes might be divided.  I know a lot will depend on how they perform early in the season.

  • 5 SEC teams starting off in the top 25 isn't bad at all.  The SEC should get around 8 teams in this year. 

    Since most rosters are pretty much complete, I'm thinking the pre-season SEC Polls will looking something like this.

    1. Tennessee
    2. Kentucky
    3. Auburn
    4. Mississippi State
    5. LSU
    6. Florida
    7. Missouri
    8. Arkansas
    9. Vanderbilt
    10. Alabama
    11. South Carolina
    12. Texas A&M
    13. Georgia
    14. Ole Miss

    I think there will be some opportunities for Arkansas, we always outperform projections. I see the polls having us anywhere from 7th-10th.  Which means we'll probably finish like 6th.

    Jontay Porter coming back sure does help, but this will be a transition year for Mizzou.  But year 3 for Cuonzo is looking extremely good.
  • #37 by MakingPlays on 01 Jun 2018
  • I Figure we will come in and around the 11th spot and then finish top seven.

    No way they pick us past 10th.  The teams from 11th-14th are all going to be really bad next year.  TAM losses everything and has the worst recruiting class in the conference.  South Carolina put all their eggs in the Bowen basket and he didn't get cleared to play, they are essentially the same roster from last year minus Frank Booker who their second best player, they'll be a bottom tier team again this year.  Georgia is in completely rebuild with a new coach and same thing goes with Ole Miss. 

    The top 6 team in conference are pretty much set in stone, so are the bottom 4.  The 7-10 slots with Ark, Missouri, Vandy, and Alabama can go either way.  I lean towards us getting more love in the media/coaches poll simply because of the Daniel Gafford factor, he'll be one of the favorites for SEC POY.

    I think Mizzou will be alright next year, Tillmon and Porter will arguably be the best front court in the conference next year.  Plus, Cuonzo always gets the most of what he has.
