UNC Unanimous #1 In Coaches Poll

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Two firsts with this:

1. This is the first time since USA Today took over the poll in 1991 that a team has been a unanimous #1 in the preseason poll.

2. UNC is also the first team to be preseason #1 in consecutive seasons.

Other than that, this is not a surprise.

The potential contenders behind UNC are: UConn, Louisville, UCLA, Duke, Pitt, Michigan St., Texas, Notre Dame, Purdue.

Yes, the Big East has four teams in the top ten. The ACC has four teams in the entire poll: UNC, Duke, Miami is #16 and the coaches are sleeping on Wake Forest at #24.
