ESPN's Dick Vitale has released his preseason top 40 ranking for college basketball this year.
The Kansas Jayhawks barely slipped into the top 25.
25. Kansas: Cole Aldrich and Sherron Collins are gone, but the Morris twins return and Bill Self welcomes Josh Selby, a newcomer with lots of potential. Selby is currently hurt and his status is also in question pending an investigation of his eligibility.
This seems a little low although I can give Vitale that since KU has so many critical pieces to replace. But, as KU seemingly always does, they'll re-load and be dangerous again.
