Not big into preseason ball but UKs team looked to have a more balanced approach instead of the hero ball of the last few seasons. I don’t see another team being any better. It also doesn’t hurt have last seasons national player of the year return either. I’ll go with Kentucky.

Lol at Kentucky winning it all. They are way too soft to come back from an embarrassing first round exit to win it all the following year.

Can’t say I disagree with anything here. Cal needs to hand the reigns over to an asst. coach though with 3 minutes left in the final.

The first two letters in your handle automatically devalue your comments.
says the guy whos school is payin a dude $10 mill a year to go 9-16, and then lose in 1st round to a catholic church league team...

fun fact: IU has more Ncca wins the past tw years than UK---sad part? IU only has ONE win...

now, go raise some more cash to pay your overweight, underachieving, 49 first rd picks, one title coach, soon to be governor, another lifetime, $50 million dollar buyout contract.. 🤣 🤣

Fun fact - University of Indiana basketball is dead. Forever.


SourWeightyAmericankestrel-max-1mb.gif
Its Indiana University you hillbilly....

Might be dead, forever---who knows. But at least its not costing us $10 fukin mill a year--- and without a buyout so large that to pay it, youd need to sell half the state to China, just to pay it... 🤣

Regardless of the cost our potential renews every year unlike up in Bloomington. If this season goes farther than recent ones the cost averages out. Damon Bailey ain’t walking through that door kid.

Counting a play-in game as an NCAAT win is so precious. Probably the most adorable thing I've ever heard.

Whoever has the best backcourt, IMO, will be the toughest team to knock off. Guards dictate the game.

Gonzaga, Houston, and North Carolina seem like the three most likely candidates.

Baylor and Creighton could have really dynamic backcourts, as well.

i mean, it counts...its the NCAAT...NCAA counts it. But my question is, whats more adorable---counting a play in game as a nccat win, or........counting a bunch of elte 8's when one, there were only 8 teams in the tourney, or two, only having to win one game to make the elite 8? 😁 😁

Congrats on the participation trophy, but the round of 64 is still called the "first round" for a reason. Why wasn't Indiana racking up accolades when there were only like 4 teams in the tourney? Seems like it should've been a simple thing to do. They must have really sucked.

Another fun fact: St. Peter's went to the Elite 8 last season, something Indiana hasn't done in 20 years. 😁

You've won the mighty SEC. You now advance to.....the Elite 8! To face Dartmouth for a berth in the FINAL FOUR!

Kinda weird that UK beat a Big 10 team (or the team that beat the Big 10 team) in each of their title years in 48, 49, 51, and 58. Piddly little SEC school beating up on the juggernauts of the Big 10.

never said UK wasa piddly little SEC school----i said they plyed in a shit conference that afforded them the luxury of easily making the NCAAT.
