    Yeah, there're going to be the clear cut favorites for sure.

    What do you think about Arkansas chances to make some noise?

    This will be the best team CMA has had IMO. Dusty Hannahs and Moses both back and we went the juco route pretty hard with Jaylen Barford, Daryl Macon and Arlando Cook(1,4 and 5 ranked)along with some incoming 3 star- freshmen and red shirt JR transfer from Colorado Dustin Thomas. Finally have a full roster with length to run this system and some knock down three point shooters. Fully expect a tourney bid/run. Also have some studs committed over the next few years.

    It's taken longer than expected but I think we take off this year and sustain it, others have hinted at a possible grad transfer in Aaaron Ross from TTech- we will see.

    I agree they will be filthy, however I worry about any team winning it all with a freshman point guard.

    Then again, Duke did it with Tyus Jones soooooo

    Grayson Allen will be a Junior next year. Duke doesn't even have a true point guard for shit's sake.

    I don't buy this malarkey, isn't Frank Jackson rated the #4 PG by ESPN in this class.

    Tyus Jones was a stud (in college) and a LOT better than Jackson and Allen at the PG spot.

    The only question is can Duke defend. A big reason they won in 2015 is because Winslow could defend multiple positions. They're gonna be the top rated offense by far imo though.

    Duke has had a top ten offense every year since 2010 per Kenpom (too lazy to look farther back) so with or without a true point guard I expect the offense to be elite. It will all come down to how good the defense is, esp at the end of the year.

    That's good news for your shooting guard but does he play the point? Isn't Frank Jackson coming in to run the point and be the primary ball handler? Isn't that why Derryck Thornton left? And isn't that a lot to heap on Jackson's shoulders?

    I'm nitpicking here of course. Duke is going to be extremely talented.

    Not finding his actual rankings in my first couple of tries. But here he is clearly listed by ESPN as a shooting guard. Which is no surprise, because that's what he is.

    I do like your joe biden malarkey use though.

    Duke is going to be really good, but that Kentucky team shouldn't have even been tested with that kinda talent they had.

    It's really hard to win a championship. UK with that ridiculous team had like a 45% chance to win and that was the highest odds in the modern era.

    Nope. Still makes us sick too. I understand college kids getting complacent, bored whatever during the grind of the conference schedule and dropping a game or 2 though.

    I agree that the Kentucky team on paper was more complete than this Duke team.

    As much as it pains me say however, Duke is better coached.

    Don't be a complete jackass clive. Why are you ignoring the link I provided? Why don't you educate yourself on Frank Jackson before you decide he is a point guard?

    ESPN says his weaknesses are forcing his shot, getting teammates involved, and floor vision. Scout says his areas to improve are true point guard. Draftexpress says he is not a willing passer, has tunnel vision, hasn't consistently shown he can run a team, and has average court vision

    He may be listed as a PG but that doesn't sound much like a PG to me. Perhaps he'll figure it out, it's a big question mark with this Duke team though.

    Congrats Duke fans hope we see you in Pheonix. The point gaurd situation might not be ideal but I think Grayson Allen should be okay at the point. Everything about Jackson screams shooting gaurd to me. He was probably listed as a pg by some services under the expectations that he would develop his pg skills. From what I've seen it doesn't look like that happened but he should be more than fine playing off the ball

    If I had a dream team season

    I would want Calipari to recruit them sprinkle in some coach K recruiting of a shooter and multi year players

    Cal to coach regular season he is good at 30 win seasons

    Cal to coach the first four rounds of the tourney

    K to coach and not Milk the clock in final four and championship

    After its all said and done......

    Roy to talk them all in to coming back and repeat for the hell of it

    Hmm so a team that relied almost exclusively on 2 guys to score all the points and lost their best player is gonna be "filthy" because a couple of their incoming recruits look like nice players?

    I've seen "filthy" college basketball teams. UNC '09. UNC '05. Kansas '08. Florida '07. Duke '15. Kentucky a few yrs ago. Among others. This Duke team is nowhere near that. People love to get carried away.

    Duke will likely be quite good. But we aren't talking powerhouse-good.

    For the most part all those team you listed were just title winners. Does that make them powerhouses?

    Nobody expected Florida to repeat

    08 Kansas Memphis was pretty good. Ucla had a bad coach but that roster was loaded

    15 Duke. What about 15 UK

    UNC 09 was pretty damn good give ya that one.
