The preseason coaches poll has been released.
Not too surprisingly, there were no votes for the Huskies, although someone gave the Cougs a nod.
However, the poll backs up degree of difficulty for the UW schedule, as six opponents show up: USC (1), Ohio State (10), Cal (12), UCLA (17), Boise State (23) and Hawaii (24).
Preseaon polls could hardly be more meaningless. But they're interesting as conversation starters. So, with that in mind, my hunch is that more than three Pac-10 teams will show up on the final poll -- maybe most notably Oregon State. And I think Hawaii will finish higher -- and perhaps Boise lower -- than this.
