Coaches Poll: South Florida Preseason #45

We'll do a lot better in AP poll.

Pretty sure Joey Knight and a few other writers will rank us.  (No pressure Joey).

Here is a good article expecting USF to crack top 25 soon.

Six teams that soon will crack the Amway Coaches Poll

4. South Florida

Preseason status: Tied for No. 20 among other vote-getters (2).

Houston is undoubtedly the clubhouse leader in the American Athletic Conference. Yet after storming to eight wins with a strong close to last season, the Bulls are an intriguing team to consider in the East Division. It stands to reason that the second-place in the American — such as Temple last fall — is in line for the top 25. But can USF manage a difficult schedule to improve upon last year’s win total?

There are a number of reasons for optimism, with none more impressive than the way this team turned a corner after a disappointing start to last season. The resulting confidence should come in handy for USF, which takes on Northern Illinois, Syracuse and Florida State in September before taking on a league schedule that includes road dates against Temple and Memphis.

Not very astute since we ended the season 35 iirc in sagarin ratings and lost a competitive senior laden 25 sagarin rated team and we return almost everybody.  We gonna curb stomp some people with our WR talent.  Pass the koolaid.

Wait for AP poll.  Idiot coaches don't put 2 seconds into poll.  We'll get a lot more votes in AP poll...guaranteed.

While I don't put a lot of value into preseason coaches polls, the most disappointing thing is that we only received 2 votes and there were a total of 6 AAC coaches involved in the poll. Help the conference out a little bit fellas! (*They probably just didn't want to increase our chances at getting Big 12 attention)
