    College hoops thread - Tourney/bubble talk

    Watch out for Tom Izzo and Mich St. Im really liking their chances to make a serious run in the tournament. They have smart veteran players and when they play solid defense they are going to be a tough out for anyone.

    Kentucky is clearly the most talented team, however experience could bite them when it matters. Thats the problem with being a program built on cheating that "recruits" the best players each year knowing most of them will enter the NBA draft at seasons end.

    The other 3 teams I could see contending for the championship are Syracuse, UNC, and Kansas. I feel like one of the 5 should win it, but a lot can happen in the tourney.

    Strong team. Sullinger is nasty. Their trouble lies when they dont get scoring from Buford. He is key for them. If a team locks down on him and he isnt hitting shots for OSU, they can be beaten by good teams.

    They have amazing talent, but I think their lack of experience may catch up with them.

    i think kentuckys youth could bite em in a one and done scenario...mich st is always a tough out...i don't see this year being any different...cuse looks awfully good to me but something about them has me skittish...this things wide open imo...missou could go on a run with how they can score and that tempo on offense and i don't think kansas has what it takes this year to make the final 4
    hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"

    Along with UK's inexperience, you have to watch out for their weak conference schedule. The SEC is more or less horrible and UK has been playing those teams since just after the New Year. It's really like shooting fish in a barrel for them, it always has been (except for the Gillispe years). UK will run into a team in March that will play them like Mississippi State did last night, except that team will be better coached (Rick Stansbury can't coach his way out of a wet paper bag).

    Plus I sorry but I still wouldn't trust Calipari in a big game. Sure they made the Final Four last season, but that could have easily been a fluke.
    Insert pithy saying here.

    WV, I told someone the other day that Tom Izzo is the Nick Saban of college basketball. That dude is one hell of a coach. Incredibly underrated.

    That said, I hate this lousy tournament. **** Wofford.

    How is it lousy? This tournament produces some real entertaining matchups.

    Too many nobodies in the tournament for me. Hate watching Duke and Kentucky Sandusky a couple of cosmetology schools in the first round.

    Trim this **** down to 16 teams and get rid of those automatic bid teams that people feel sorry for. It's like field day in elementary school where even the fat kids that couldn't cross the finish line got 11th place ribbons.

    Don't get me started. I've said too much already.
