Who writes this stuff, anyway?
The magazine should be on news stands in a few weeks. Incidentally, they've got UConn ranked No. 16 preseason, and Cincinnati right behind at No. 17. I agree the two are neck-and-neck. Really, flip a coin as to which team deserves to be preseason AAC champs.
There are no other AAC teams in the mag's Top 40. SMU was going to be, until Larry Brown retired in early July. I say that SMU, Memphis or Houston could be NCAA tourney teams this season.
And if you want a sleeper, go with UCF (Johnny Dawkins, Tacko Fall, B.J. Taylor, A.J. Davis.)
