08:17 AM ET 12.12 | Wichita State sixth-year coach Gregg Marshall isn't getting a ton of love in the polls, but at least the Shockers appear in the AP poll. The truth is no one, including Marshall, expected Wichita State to be in any top-25 discussion this season at all. Marshall lost four starters who led the Shockers to an NIT title in 2011 and a regular season MVC title last season. Yet Marshall doesn't seem all that surprised that his unproven cast has dashed out to a 9-0 start and is making a case as one of the top mid-major teams in the country in the process. "People keeps asking me, 'how do these guys pull it off?' Well, they have pride," Marshall tells USA TODAY Sports in a phone interview.

As a policy, FN's b'ball threads should only have pictures of members of dance teams/cheer squads.

Isn't that where the Wichita lineman is from?

Yes. He was among the first to participate in the "picket fence" play.
