Ranks Colonials 10th out of 14th in the A-10 in their conference play primer: http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/columns/story?columnist=oneil_dana&id=5985221
It's also the only mention of GW in the column. Not that I blame the author.
Those rankings have "based on official media poll" in parentheses next to them. So, those rankings are based on the preseason media poll from ~October.
I'm pretty sure we were ranked 13th in those ones.
GW was 10th in the preseason media poll. The rankings match these preseason rankings: http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/Temple_picked_as_Atlantic_10_favorites.html
