    Gotta go with my beloved U.K Wildcats, but I honestly believe MSU will be right there at the end as well.

    UL???? LMAO, watch, they won't make it past the 2nd weekend.

    UK fans do ruin all the online polls.

    And yes Brennan Canada would have won the same NCAA POTY twitter poll. jumpingsmile

    I’ll take the field against that list.I didn’t pick others because I thought my team will win I picked others because it’s a fair chance a team not named on that list will win.

    I'd say that Gonzaga, Texas Tech, Memphis and maybe Virginia have an outside shot. But do you actually expect one of them or another unlisted team do it?

    I wouldn’t pick any one team to win it. That’s why I picked others. Just pointing out I didn’t pick other because I had my own team slotted to win.

    Well, I’m betting if you had to make a healthy wager, you’d pick a team from that list.

    I’d make a healthy wager against any team on that list. Heck I’ll give you two picks.

    But if you had to wager on one team, I’m betting it would be a team from that list.

    And you would be right. I just wouldn’t bet on any team to win it straight odds which is kinda of what the poll title suggests. Some of those teams I wouldn’t remotely consider contenders either and certainly not more so than the ones you mentioned.

    Apparently I’m not the only one thinking Kentucky will have the nations top back court. But what do us silly Kentucky fans know? ;)

    The first sentence basically implies they’re only ranked that high because of how good they were in high school. That’s how chad used to always rank front courts and back courts on here. He always had Kentucky ranked #1 in both because of how many 5 stars they had.

    Not saying they won’t be good but that article does nothing to prove that there still aren’t a lot of unknowns with the Kentucky back court. This happens every year.

    My original statement was it will be hard to find a better backcourt. Unbiased writers seem to agree with me

    Guess we’ll see who has a better backcourt on Tuesday night. MSU or UK.

    After losing 38-10 yesterday to Kansas State, the CBB season couldn’t have started at a better time.

    Well, one night isn’t a definitive statement of who is better, but yes, it will be a great matchup, and I’m very excited

    I didn't say that they aren't or can't be. I'm just saying that it's kinda ridiculous to say that Kentucky's overall roster is as proven as KU's.

    Kentucky's freshmen are a huge reason for their ranking. Not the case for KU.

    If I got the rest of the field of teams not listed straight up vs you getting a team of your choice I’d take that bet

    I believe the conversation is about back courts. Kind of ridiculous to alter the conversation. I'ld match our 3 guards against any others out there. IQ has pulled a PJ and is playing outstanding,

    Our front court will be the reason MSU wins Tuesday. Unless Richards plays, we'll be playing a lo of small ball. But we're pretty good at that

    The original comment was "I don’t think UK is any more of a mystery than KU."

    That's just not true.

    If Kentucky's returnees aren't substantially more productive than last year, you're probably in trouble.

    That's not the point.

    I don't know why you people are trying to complicate something as simple as "WHO will win the national title?"

    That means one team. Pick one. Just one.

    So you honestly believe it's more likely that one of those teams wins it?

    How are you confused by what I’m saying?

    If I’m choosing the rest of the field OTHER field over a group of all the teams listed, I’m choosing the listed teams.

    If I’m choosing the rest of the OTHER field over any single team listed, I’m choosing the OTHER afield.

    Yeah, I understand that you’d take the other field vs any single team. Almost anyone would.

    That’s not the purpose or idea behind this poll. Selecting “other” should mean that you believe that a team not listed will win it.

    Like I said, I’m pretty sure most of the “other” votes are made by people homering for their longshot teams.

    So KU needs Azubuike and Dotson to be substantially better? Really?

    Not really. Probation, loss of scholarships, post season ban(s)---Yeah. Vacating wins, seasons, tournament results? Naaah. People like us, and others, know who won.

    Meh....I disagree. I watched Louisville beat Michigan. I highly doubt paid hookers had much, if anything to do with that. For me personally, I think its silly.
