Preseason AP Top 25 College Basketball Poll: Nothing to see here

My thoughts exactly, Jay.

The AP voters have spoken, and what they think is nearly identical to the opinions of the coaches involved in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

Of the Top 24 schools, all of them except UConn (15/17) have finished within 1 ranking spot when compared to the USA Today Coaches Poll. 15 of those 24 schools have the same exact ranking in both polls. Harvard and Utah have tied for 25th in the AP Poll, replacing Iowa at 25th in the coaches.

Do these guys vote more like computers than the actual computers?
