As expected, Bobby Petrino and the Louisville Cardinals weren’t ranked when the preseason Associated Press Top 25 poll was released on Sunday afternoon. It’s not that I’m not confident that Louisville could compete with the majority of the top 25, however they’ve not been getting much respect from the national media therefore it’s not a surprise to see them unranked.

The Cards did receive 46 votes, which puts them at No. 31 overall. They were at No. 36 in the USA Today Coaches Poll that was released a couple of weeks ago. The ACC had just three teams ranked in the top 25 with defending national champion Florida State being No. 1. Clemson came in at No. 16, while North Carolina was ranked No. 23. Notre Dame isn’t officially a member of the ACC, but they’re on the Cardinals schedule in 2014 and came in at No. 17.
