That's what I thought last year, especially with their defense. And look at where that got me :)

Last year, they had the 30th ranked Offensive efficiency ratingand 1st ranked defensive Efficiency., per KenPom.  This year, they are 2nd and 3rd respectively.  No one else is near that combination.

So how many of you will be sucked in picking Duke?, Williamson is good but Duke doesn't play top 5 teams continuousley, they are ripe for an upset. Right now, UNC and Kentucky look pretty damn good. Duke is a good play but they've been exposed.

Ewww.  Fuck Duke.
UNC does look good. 
As for the Cats, I gets this feeling either they'll get knocked out really, really early, or make a very deep run.
I think the late season losses are nothing but good in terms of them not getting too big of an ego and taking any other team for granted, but when/if Travis returns is a wildcard.  There was some great chemistry starting to happen before his injury, and with him being out, a new chemistry has started to develop.  I'm nervous about what will happen if he comes back, and if he doesn't.  Then again, I'm always nervous this time of year.

Go Cats!!!  grin1

Study your brackets well.  You may finish 2nd.  I got this thing locked up.

Time to study folks.  I hope Cali got an invite, I hope everyone has the same chance. BRACKET EQUALITY.  I hope you invited F&L too, why not, they post and it's all fun.  Not inviting someone to play is douchbaggery at the highest. We're all equal here and dysfunctional.


Now, study hard and no cheating. Don't be looking at someone elses bracket, who's to say they have the right answer anyway ( except me, I'm 2 time defending champ ) Who's gonna be duped by Duke? who's going out on a limb with Houston?, who has the balls to pick a 12 in the first?. It's all great and the best betting time of the year, good luck to all of you and there's no crying either.

Not me. How did they get rewarded with three teams for the awfulness they put out all season. I get Oregon stealing someone's bid. Should have been A State. A State might win their game in Dayton. When is the last time a Power 6 regular season champion has been an 8 seed?
