    I think they'll be fine, personally. Certainly they should safely be in the NCAAs. I just don't know if they're a big threat to make it to the Final Four. Freshman 5-star recruits struggle often enough as it is to carry a team very far. So, I would have serious reservations about penciling in a team with 4-star freshmen guards. I'll have Memphis in my preseason top 25, but they'll probably be closer towards the bottom end of that ranking.

    I think Oregon has put together a very good team for this year but idk if it’s final four caliber.

    How many avatar bets are you going to make? You can’t uphold your end of the bargain once you lose all of em

    You bet Memphis will make the final four and I don’t think they will. Loser has an avatar for three months of the winners choice. Odds are I won’t remember either

    K. So 1 month? 2 months? You have multiple bets going on, so I'll let you set the length.

    If you want, I can give it to you early and you can wear it prior to losing.

    lol that's right. You and I were both rocking Grayson avatars in 2018... And they looked amazing. I think 1 month is a nice simple number to wager.

    3 month bet with Jimbo. 1 month with me. I sense I'll have more avatar bets once I release my top 50 in October.

    Butthirt over an avatar bet on a national message board??? Well if nothing else You’ve given me some perspective. I’m too lazy to even figure out how to make an avatar, much less get rustled bc someone didn’t honor the millennial version of a gentleman’s bet.

    And for the thread I’ll go

    Sparty
    Kansas
    Maryland
    Florida

    Really like this Louisville team as well just don’t wanna go all homer and jinx us. Also think Uk and Memphis will be real threats. I’ll go Wichita st to round out my elite 8, I think they will shock some people~

    You really think someone saying “You = Liar. You = Phony” is real? I’ve talked to @lurkeraspect84 on the phone. It was a joke

    That has yet to be determined. I think we’re final four caliber, as do a lot of others..including people who get paid to do it for a living.

    So is backing up 'people who get paid to do it for a living.'.... they're like weather men.... they have a job where it's ok to be wrong.

    Yet, you’re taking a firm stance on something you have no control over.
