Jay’s Preseason Summit League Ballot

It’s not quite October, which means we’re just getting to the good stuff in the Missouri Valley Football Conference. That remains my primary focus for the time being. However, as a voter for The Summit League’s preseason and postseason awards, I was recently asked to direct at least some of my attention to the rapidly approaching college basketball season.
