WVU 20th in Andy Staples' Preseason Power Rankings...and is Fleetwood Mac

West Virginia is getting some preseason love from Andy Staples has placed the Mountaineers 20th in his Preseason Power Rankings. WVU is sandwiched by a few old foes; Virginia Tech(19) and Notre Dame(21). Now only if we could play them.

In true Staples' fashion, the rankings are themed. In this case, WVU is compared to Fleetwood Mac (most overrated band ever in my opinion). Staples compares the offseason drama in Morgantown to that of Mick Fleetwood and Bob Weston, amongst other things. It's actually quite dead-on. Also, check out LSU's write-up. I think that's the best one.

The Mountaineers are the Big East favorite this season, with some believing they could be a dark horse for the National Championship. Bottom-line is the pressure will be on heavy for first-year coach Dana Holgorsen.
