    Yep, I just mentioned that in another thread. Some fans may not care about preseason rankings, but it seems to matter to Dennis. Like you say, fuel for the fire. I love it.

    Dennis has taken notice of this, fuel for the fire.
    I think we need to prove it. Obviously. Naturally, one will pre-rank Duke or UNC higher because they have consistently proven that that is where they belong. We on the other hand, have fallen short when expectations were high. I don't think the above is anything crazy but will gladly welcome not being ranked pre-season if it means, blood in the water motivation, for our players, and we indeed show, that we deserve better. When it all shakes out, like everyone on here knows, preseason rankings or, the ranking you have when you are actually playing, mean very little if you don't get the win in the end more often than not.

    I just noticed Cam Gottfried is on the roster. The Pack also added Tucker Thompson, a 6'10" center who played for Western Carolina.

    Thx. I figured Cam was but wasn't sure about Tucker.

    i think 3rd in conference is our ceiling if Duke and UVA play up to their potential. I think if we go on a run in the tournament we go as far as Dennis and Yurt can carry us.
