The 5 Most Overrated Teams in College BasketballI'm surprised harr hasn't posted this yet.
North Carolina State
2012-13 preseason ranking: 6
2011-2012 final ranking: 20 (24-13)
Making a Cinderella-run into the Sweet 16 as a No. 11 seed last season won N.C. State many fans. But did it win them a place in the top 10? Not even close.
Sure, C.J. Leslie's decision to return for his junior year and with the recruitment of Rodney Purvis is a huge boost for the Wolfpack, but let's be realistic.
N.C. State finished the regular season 20-11 a year ago and were unranked. If you ask me, I value a 31-game sample a whole lot more than I do a three-game sample.
Then there's the fact that the Wolfpack are scheduled to play seven teams that are ranked. That doesn't bode well for a team that went 0-8 against ranked teams last season.
Don't get me wrong, N.C. State will be good this season. But will the Wolfpack be good enough to give North Carolina and Duke a run for their money in the ACC? Probably not.
Actual ranking range: 13-17
