Here is the complete poll with the number of points each team received through the voting.
1. Pittsburgh (22 first-place votes) 190
2. Cincinnati 142
3. West Virginia (1) 142
4. Connecticut (1) 131
5. Rutgers 99
6. USF 79
7. Syracuse 41
8. Louisville 40
On a positive note, it can only get better. In my opinion, the poll is pretty accurate with no major surprises. However, I think USF will be better than most expect. I would rank them closer to the top with WVU and UCONN. Leavitt left a lot of talent on offense and Skip Holtz has proven himself to be a good coach.
As of now the Cards will be an underdog in every conference game this season. Prove them wrong, Strong!<
