You are very right—updated it to reflect who I had in my bracket: Zona and UNC.
Thank you. Bring back lime.
I am aware—lifelong State fan. “The mountaintop,” as it relates to the perceived goals of the N.C. State athletics department, isn’t just a national title, though, it’s also consistent regular-season success in the ACC. NC State has made clear that it wants to be on the level of Duke/UNC and cease the 2-3 (or 5) year…
Having watched Gonzaga throughout the year, I really don’t think Arizona would be “completely happy” to see them. They’re really fucking good. And that RPI was their non-con RPI; I updated it to reflect their regular season RPI right after posting. And huh, that does read weird/wrong. The Markkanen segment should have…
I’m dumb; it’s been updated. Thanks!
I agree with your assessment that UCLA has had a knack for shitting its games away, but I’m not sure it applies here. Having watched the full game, Trier really was amazing, especially down the stretch when Arizona couldn’t buy a bucket. The Bruins were up by 11 with 4 minutes left and Trier reeled off 8 points just…
No! It’s bad, actually. Indiana and Michigan State fell off a cliff; Northwestern is a feel-good story, but it just lost to Illinois, again; Michigan will probably make the tournament and get torched on defense; and Wisconsin and Maryland have great records, but neither have any truly impressive wins against…
Good catch. I just glanced at his Creighton bio for the class, but it seems they haven’t updated it yet.
See, this is how you poke a butt:
The post initially said Swinney exited to scattered applause and laughter from the media; South Carolina Radio Network’s Kevin McCrarey wrote in to point out that it was a group of former players and boosters. The piece’s been updated to reflect this.
As a few of you pointed out, Arizona’s Ray Smith tore his ACL and retired a couple weeks ago. The post has been updated to reflect that.
Foh, I only like Marcus Paige and Justin Jackson. As for the ACC, considering Syracuse, Miami, Louisville, and N.C. State constitute the bottom of the top half, it should be amazing this year. I count 10-11 teams that could make the tourney. FSU, Clemson, VT, and Notre Dame all have good enough rosters to knock of…
I’ve got them in the 16-20 range. I want to see Lonzo some more, but they should be fun this year.
My heart says to scream at you for downplaying N.C. State, but my brain says, “fuck, he’s probably right.”
This is honestly how far I got:
I have them just outside the top 15. I like their new backcourt, though.
You are right about that. Blackmon is awesome; I hope he stays healthy this year.
From the Tampa Bay Times:
LSU uses both the live tiger and a person in a tiger suit, for some reason:
