CBS Sports releases its way too early 2013-14 college basketball preseason rankings

The Louisville Cardinals and Michigan Wolverines gave us a 2013 title game to remember. Unfortunately, someone had to lose, and in the end it was Rick Pitino’s Cards raising the trophy with an 82-76 victory over Wooden Award winner Trey Burke and Co.

While we will grant Louisville a few days to rest on their laurels, the rest of the college basketball world will not. Thus, CBS Sports has put together their 2013-14 way too early preseason top 25.

Cardinals fans, while happy now, are not going to like who is at the top of this list.

Interestingly, CBS included a 26th team, Florida State, in their rankings. All of Seminoles Nation is waiting on the potential commitment of the nation’s No. 1-overall recruit, Andrew Wiggins. If Wiggins commits to play for FSU, the Noles will be ranked — the kid is just that great. If not, Florida State will most likely find themselves on the outside looking in to open the 2013-14 season.

The Kentucky Wildcats, under coach John Calipari, have very rarely trotted out the same team two years in row. Once again, Calipari will bring in a slew of super-talented freshmen, and once again, the Wildcats will open the year with an absurdly high ranking. Playing this recruiting game has proven to be a crapshoot in the program’s immediate past, as an all-freshman starting five won the national title in 2012 before an entirely different crew got knocked out of the first round of the NIT.

Obviously, the world will have to wait and see, but isn’t it fun to look ahead?
