College Hoops 2006-2007

It's gettin' crackin'... Preseason NIT starts tonight.

I gotta go with Ohio Stae - UNC for the title, Ohio State winning it all

Well if you believe the experts at ESPN The Ragazine...three of the final 4 teams are already set as each and every one has selected Florida, UNC and Kansas to make the final 4.
So this year we're gonna have 62 other teams fight it out for the right to be the 4th team and give those 3 a pass to the final weekend so they don't get George Masoned along the way and screw up ratings.

Washington vs. LSU with LSU as national champions

A few predictions:
1. A Missouri Valley Conference team will reach the Elite 8 and lose to an SEC team.
2. Glen Davis will spark a long media discussion over the number "requirements" a player of the year must meet. In the end, Joakim Noah will take the various best player awards.
3. None of this year's final four teams are in the AP top 25's top four.
4. The Big 12 will send more teams to the group of 64 than the Big East.
5. The Big Ten will have a repeat of last year's tournament failures.
6. Creighton will win the MVC.

Go Creighton!

Without Oden I doubt it, once he gets healthy though they'll be a force.

I'm just hoping that my Friars will be respectable this season. Perhaps an NIT berth? I'm not asking for much.

I went to our season opener a few nights ago. We've got six true freshmen on the team and the leader of the team is sophomore AJ Abrams. This season could end really well or really bad. Either way, it's a rebuilding year and could be a lot of fun to watch.

Oden just needs to get healthy by draft time for the Celtics.
Just lose baby.

oden will be back on the court by january... even if then needs a month or so to get back into game shape, which he shouldn't 'cause he can still run with his injury... he'll be fine by february. which means by march he'll be in full beast mode... so unless he's a complete bust, which is always possible, i fully expect to see ohio state there.

i'm only picking two teams... not 4. i expect at least one more mid-major team to make a run at the final 4. just watching these early scores coming in tells the story... vermont beat #14 BC convincingly, butler beat notre dame, northern arizona beat arizona state, idaho state almost beat # 17 marquette, fordham gave # 24 tennessee a scare, eastern illinois lost by 2 to iowa state, clemson barely beat old dominion, and my personal favorite, D2 franklin pierce beat New Hampshire in UNH's annual "let's give a local school from a lower division a shot to play us so that we can beat the piss out of them and get a win on our schedule" game... having played in said game when i was in college, it's nice to see someone finally beat 'em.

welcome to college basketball... those with "tremendous upside potential" go to the big schools, while those with actual skill but perhaps undersized and/or not as athleticly gifted go to the mid majors and lower division schools.

this, of course, has always been the case. college coaches would rather take the potential of what the player can be over the player that is... but year after year the lack of skill of the "tremendous upside potential" player is getting larger and large, and more and more mid major schools are taking advantage. creighton's in the top 25 for pete's sake.

i love it.

oops i thought you meant ohio st would win the preseason NIT. i guess that would have been hard since they arent in it

I'm still not 100% sold on OSU though, they lost a lot of their veteran scoring/leadership and are counting on their freshman studs to lead them to the promised land. And while these guys are good, Oden will be coming off an inury, and you can never be 100% sure with freshmen.

But Oden is a beast and could quite possibly lead them to a title.

unlike last year where i stood rock solid on my championship pick straight through till it went up in flames against LSU (which i'm still bitter about, btw)... i will flip flop like john kerry all year long this year.

i'm already rethinking my pick and leaning towards carolina... georgetown will also be on my radar, as will be pitt & kansas. i'm seeing a second round "stunning" upset for florida.

I'm telling you, Villanova will make an impact.
