    They should be a #1 best team in america right now IMO. Screw what bracktology says they are clearly one of the 4 best teams right now. I agree with Pitino though doesn't really matter. Going to have to play great basketball regardless. Their defense is beyond elite so fun to watch.
    Just like last year when they were getting hot around this time. This bunch has one more deep tourney run left in them. They have national champ written all over them yet again. I'm rooting for them. Grew up near Louisville.

    This year I think you could make the argument that the two seeds will be every bit as good as the one seeds. It is very odd in that respect.

    I feel bad for whoever draws New Mexico state in the first round. The have a NBA level athlete on the wing in Daniel Mullings(If he improves next year he could become an NBA player) and one gigantic human being in Bhullar. I watched them beat New Mexico this year and they can match up well with a variety of teams. I would hate to draw them in the 1st rd deep good basketball team.

    I really hate watching HAVOC, but I will admit it makes teams do some really stupid things. I think the Pitino pressure game is much better on the eye and more effective, but Louisville also has better players.

    I thought the Sun Belt final was yesterday. It is today Harrow and Georgia St taking on Elfrid Payton and the Ragin Cajuans. It is on ESPN2. I would tune in if you have never watched Payton play kid he is a ball to watch. Great handle feel for the game. I don't and passer. Nice to see Ron Hunter coaching on national Tv he made IUPUI a respectable program.

    Did Hunter get fired at IUPUI? I knew he was solid there and not being from Indianapolis I never saw or heard what happened.

    No he just got a much better job. Georgia St is a much better job than IUPUI, I think the record after he left is good evidence of that. I wasn't too sure that was true when a HS coach told me that right after he left, but that coach was right. He said the recruiting budget and facilities are much better at Georgia St.

    His son and Ryan Harrow are playing really good this year. Watching Payton guard RJ Hunter is fun that is a hell of a battle.

    Interesting. I can not comment on facilities, but I do live here in the south and let me tell you, the recruiting base is 5000X better in Indianapolis. In Indy not only do you have great hoops in the city, you have great hoops in the entire state. Also, Chicago, Louisville and Cincinnati are just a hop, skip and jump away. I know there are obviously schools to compete with in the Midwest, but dang, there are tons of players.

    In the south you get hotbeds such as Atlanta and Charlotte (to some extent), but rural areas just aren't anywhere close to what the Midwest is. I bet Hunter still relies on the Midwest to get a lot of players.

    Well the college is in Atlanta and the recruiting base is suppose to be better that is all I was told. IUPUI doesn't get any of the good talent in the Indianapolis area anyway(I honestly can't remember a good guy is the past few years).


    Ryan Harrow just made 6 incredible plays. That English layup was just ridiculous. Neither team has any size guards doing whatever they want.

    This is so fun. Payton with the great defense. He has a rare skill. Not many players can go wherever they want on the floor whenever they want. Best player in college at that IMO.


    Wow VCU is playing a close game. That is a change.

    This game brought up another rule I hate. I wish the NBA had the 1 and 1 brings so much stradgey in play. The Cajuans almost lost that game because they couldn't hit the front end of a 1 and 1 it really is a huge difference.


    The NIT is going to be mid major city all the #1 losing might knock a lot of the big conference teams out.

    I do agree with the CBS crew that Michigan St. is the strongest BIG team.

    I guess I'm the only person in America who is not wholly enamored with Florida. The SEC was pathetic this season. They can be beat.

    Louisville a 4 seed? That's rough. At least they are in the Indy bracket again.

    Post your upsets!

    trying for that Billion dollar bracket challenge. I've got Louisville over Wichita St. right now.
    I've got Michican St. and Louisville in the championship game.

    Is Michigan for real this year? 2 seed seems kind of high for them. But i don't see any other team on their half of the bracket that makes me think they won't be meeting Louisville in the Elite 8. Will they get beat by Duke?

    When is Syracuse gonna get upset?

    The popular trend atm is picking Michigan State to win the title.

    My Final 4 is Kansas, Iowa State, Arizona, and Louisville with Louisville beating Kansas for the title.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    I think our Final Four is the same. I actually have Iowa State and Arizona in the title game, with Zona winning. I'm not confident in these picks.

    Can you count on Kansas with Embiid out?
