The First FCS Coaches Poll has been released, and unlike other preseason polls which saw multiple Ohio Valley Conference teams make the Top 25, this poll has just one.

Eastern Kentucky is the only team to make the top 25, coming in at 21st, according to the 26 coaches that vote in the official coaches poll.

Jackonville State unofficially came in at 26th, 12 points outside the top 25. Murray State was 28th, and Tennessee Tech came in at 31st.

Before everyone starts throwing out the “respect” issue, there is a second issue at hand: No one knows how the OVC will come out. All 4 ranked teams are very close in the poll, so parity could be playing against the conference here as much as “respect.”

That being said, the OVC’s losing streak in FCS championship play likely hasn’t gone unnoticed by coaches, either.

The full results of the coaches poll can be found here.
