Men's Bball not ranked

First off I'm not disappointed that we are not ranked due to overconfidence possibility with our young team, but I feel Maryland is not getting any respect or very little. I just checked on ESPN and Maryland received 9 votes in the AP, which puts us tied with Temple for 36th and behind Boise State, remember this is basketball rankings not football. Now lets get to the coaches poll, Maryland received 0 votes, yep that's right not a single vote. So in terms of respect apparently the coaches feel Maryland is not a top 44 team.

Does anyone feel this is a slap in the face? Also, do you feel that Maryland is getting less respect because of the past couple of years? I for one would use this as a motivational tool with the players, saying "in the eyes of our peers, Maryland is viewed as a lesser team to the likes of Boise State, Colorado State, Wyoming". I feel Turgeon is good at motivating this group and his coaching ability is top notch. I understand rankings don't mean much, but I feel Maryland is getting underestimated...perfect!
