This year as in many years past, Christopher Newport was the overwhelming favorite to win the conference crown. The Captains garnered 6 of the 7 available first place votes. (Only 7 are available as coaches are not allowed to vote for their own team)
Ferrum received the remaining 2 first place votes. The results of the voting are below:
|2012 USA South Coaches Preseason Poll|
|Rank||Institution (1st Place Votes)||Pts.|
|1.||Christopher Newport (6)||48|
Comparing this to my predictions, there are three picks that are the same. 1st, 2nd, and 8th places. The biggest difference is the Maryville pick...I have them third, and the coaches have them seventh. We shall see....It will be a fun season.
