The first Top 25 polls for the 2012-13 college basketball season have been released.
Basketball pundits have painstakingly analyzed each and every team, picking apart their strengths and flaws in order to create the first polls of the season.
So what could get in the way of the early Top 25 teams reaching their potential?
Every team has a few red flags. Some are much more worrisome than others, and some will never even see the light of day.
That does not mean that they are not worth discussing, of course. Any factor that could impede a team from succeeding should be noted.
Without further ado, then, let’s look at the red flags for each Top 25 team.
