Preseason College Basketball Rankings: Maryland Not Ranked, Faces Eight Teams Listed

The University of Maryland is in all likelihood preparing for a pretty underwhelming season this year. They don't have a lot of depth or talent in the front court, and the talent they do have in the back court is young and erratic. What I'm trying to say is that there is a reason that they aren't ranked in the preseason USA Today/ESPN Top-25, or receiving any votes at all for that matter.

But there are plenty of teams on the other side of the schedule that make appearances, according to the Terrapins Insider.

#Terps opponents in coaches' poll: UNC (No. 1), Duke (No. 6), Alabama (No. 17). Also receiving votes: FSU, Temple, Virginia, Notre Dame.

Purdue also makes an appearance and the Terps might play them in the ACC/BIG 10 Challenge. So, yeah, the Terps have a pretty tough schedule this year.
