We're #50! A win against Syracuse (possible) and/or Kansas (unlikely) would really help us get more votes.

Really a good sign that CU would get preseason Top-25 votes. Usually for low-major conferences it takes a marquee win or a great record to begin to garner consideration in the polls. The fact that CU is getting recognition this early on is a good sign.
