"row."I think the name on the jersey thing is overblown, tbh. I think pre-season expectations are a bigger deal. We were coming off a poor season and were off everyone's radar. Teams starting outside of the top 25 always have a longer

A lot of voters and pundits are bettors and they know how Vegas perceives a team, and I think that gets underestimated in the analysis. We have been fighting an uphill perception battle more because of those two factors than some sort of brand bias.
