When it comes to college basketball there is hardly anyone who doesn't know Dick Vitale. He has been the face of college basketball for a long time. 

When it comes to predictions and analyzing most people will agree with him 99.9% of the time. He knows his stuff when it comes to college basketball and he's a familiar face come March Madness time. 

Well in his latest poll he has the Michigan Wolverines ranked number 11. He noted there success from last year and pointed out that Sims and Harris will do fine leading the team. 

Last year was the first year they made it to NCAA tournament in at least a decade. 

"John Beilein has rebuilt the Wolverines," Vitale said in his story. "Manny Harris and DeShawn Sims are back as Michigan will be dancing again."

He has yet to release his top ten, but I am assuming that Michigan State and Purdue will be in there some where ahead of Michigan. They are the only 2 who deserve to be ahead of them. 

Michigan will probably actually beat Purdue during the season though, I still believe Purdue should be ranked higher.

I am excited for the season and think Michigan will definitely finish top 15 and very likely could be top 10.
