If only the rest of the world was as enthusiastic about Hofstra's chances this year as Monica Geller.
In the middle of some other deadline work here (no, really, I swear), so just a quick post to mention that Hofstra was picked seventh in the CAA preseason poll, released today at CAA Media Day in D.C. The poll is comprised of CAA coaches, sports information directors and media.
The complete poll:
4.) George Mason
6.) Georgia State
8.) William & Mary
9.) James Madison
Seven is right in line with where the other preview magazines have pegged the Flying Dutchmen thus far. Hofstra is picked to finish sixth by Athlon, seventh by Lindy's, eighth by Blue Ribbon Yearbook and ninth by Sporting News. Many more predictions to come, of course.
Also, Flying Dutchmen guard Charles Jenkins was selected to the second team All-CAA.
I'll return later tonight or early tomorrow with more thoughts on the preseason polls.
