Huskies 17th in first AP poll

The first AP top 25 is out and the Huskies are No. 17.
That’s one spot lower than they were in the coaches poll.
By the way, I’m the AP voter for the state of Washington this year so one thing I will do this season is pass along my vote in the this space.
So here’s my pre-season poll I submitted about a week ago.
1, Florida
2, Ohio State
3, North Carolina
4, Kansas
5, Arizona
6, Pittsburgh
7, LSU
8, Duke
9, Georgetown
10, Alabama
11, UCLA
12, Wisconsin
13, Washington
14, Boston College
15, Memphis
16, Texas A&M
17, Marquette
18, Nevada
19, Hofstra
20, Southern Illinois
21, Syracuse
22, Louisville
23, Texas
24, Creighton
25, Oregon
So yes, I’m the one guy to vote for Oregon. I really think the Ducks are going to be a dangerous team this year — if not, they will be one of the most newsworthy teams of the year.
I notice USC got five votes. But right now, I think Oregon is the better team than the Trojans and No. 4 in the Pac-10.
And no, I didn’t vote for Gonzaga. I just feel there are too many question marks yet for the Zags (though they were probably about No. 27 on my list as they barely missed the cut).
As for the top, hard right now to go against a defending national champion team that returns virtually everybody.
As you can see, I have Arizona a little higher than the final poll does. But I also really think Arizona is going to be good this year. They have a lot of key seniors, and I think the chemistry will be much improved.
