After a few weeks of preseason tournaments and heavyweight matchups, we're starting to see which teams will rise this season and which teams will fall.
Some talented teams lost to Division II programs (we're looking at you, Texas). Other supposed contenders have failed to live up to the hype (how you doing, UCLA?).
On the other hand, some teams expected to be in slight rebuilding mode have come out firing (yeah, yeah, we see you, Duke).
Of course, it's far too early to make any real judgments, but that's never stopped me before!
Here's an early look at five teams on the way up (or staying up...) and five teams on the other side of the escalator.
