I find it interesting that only one Southland team is in the top 25 here. While Nicholls is rightly considered the best team going in to this season, the entire upper half of the Southland has gotten quite a bit better the last few years. I don't want to **** on any other program, but I have a hard time buying into the assumption of this poll that Duquesne, San Diego and Monmouth, among others, is better than Central Arkansas, McNeese, SHSU and Lamar. Just like every other poll, I guess everybody is entitled to their opinion. I predict at least three Southland teams will eventually end up in the top 25 by the end of the season. Not sure which ones, though.
