    Repeating is SO tough, and with UNC's added talent, I give them the edge. Plus Joakim Noah is the most overrated player in the nation. He's a rich man's Tyson Chandler. I still don't know how he's a top 5 pick. :?
    PREDICTION: Noahs stock will drop he will go 15-20 and wish he would have declared last year.
    I'll agree with that. His game is garbage. He's all hustle and tenacity. That's it. Like I said, he's a rich man's Tyson Chandler. A tad more offensive ability but that's it.

      Watch out for my Ducks this year. They were probably the biggest under-achievers in the nation last season. Tons of talent on this team. We should compete for the Pac-10 title. Keep an eye on 5-6 freshman guard Tajuan Porter. He was Malik Hairston's teammate at Detroit's Renaissance HS. Kid is cat-quick with ridiculous range. In 2 exhibition games, he logged 56 minutes, shot 11-21 from beyond the arc, had 8 boards, 4 steals, and 8 assists.

      In the Basketball Travelers Classic against Lehigh, he had a game high 27 points while shooting 5-10 on threes, 10-11 from the stripe, with 2 boards and 5 assists. He and Aaron Brooks give us great depth at PG. The 3 point shooting will be unbelievable on this team with the aforementioned guards, Chamberlain Oguchi, and Bryce Taylor. Maarty Leunen is one of the most underrated players in the country. He is a great shooter, and probably our best rebounder. Despite some of the bigger names on the team, I honestly think he is our best overall player. Hairston hasn't realized his potential yet. If he and Ray Schaeffer step up this year, the Ducks will go far. I'm pretty excited about our squad this year. Just wish we had a better coach.

        Sorry, but that will be

          I think the Hoosiers will finish 3rd in the Big Ten, get about a 4 or 5 seed and go to the Sweet 16. That's my prediction.

            That's fine, you crazy kids count out Ohio State. Once we get Oden for Big Ten play, we'll be NASTY!


            Anyways, I'm not a giant College B-Ball fan, but I'll go to some games and watch most on TV. Basketball always alluded me as a sport.

            I think OSU will struggle early without Oden, though they looked good last night and started getting it in the second half. We'll lose to UNC and Florida, but once Big Ten play hits, and Oden is back, we'll be right up there and take the Big Ten tournament. Matta is a beast of a coach.

                Im not a big fan of the NBA, but I love college basketball. And with Wisconsin and Marquette it will be a great year for me. I expect it to be a close race for the title between Wisconsin and OSU, but in the NCAA touney they should both get a high seed anyway.

                And Cards, Im thinking IU will be anywhere from 4-6 in the Big Ten and around a 7-10 seed

                  Same here. NCAA>>>>NBA. Like MLB, I really don't watch the NBA closely until postseason.

                    Oh yeah, Wisconsin is a great team, and I think Illinois will do one of the extremes. Either choke hard, or beat teams they shouldn't and be at the top of the Big Ten.

                    I don't watch the NBA at all, which hurts because I never really "learned" basketball. I understand the basics, but I don't get all the fouls and strategy and such. So, I'll probably comment all year and look like a homer or a rookie :P

                      In the NBA I cant watch other teams games without being bored out of my mind. But I can watch almost any major conference game in college. they are just so much more exciting.

                          watch out for my cuse this year.

                          3 returning seniors, watkins, roberts, and nichols. 2nd year vet devendorf had a great freshman season and looks to do it again. freshman paul harris has looked very sharp with the little action i saw. lack good depth but have enough to get it done.

                          if theres a year for us to go deep in march its this year, becase of the seniors. just my opinion.

                          GO 'CUSE!

                            There seem to be A LOT of good teams. It will be an exciting year. But is it wrong that I don't get up much for the regular season? I just feel like if you are halfway decent, you'll make the tourney and go from there. Especially out of conference stuff, I don't quite care as much.

                              I beleive that UW and OSU will be 1-3 seeds, Illinois a 4-6seed, and Indiana, Michigan, MSU to be in it.

                                Nope...It's at the UC and Illinois always does well at the UC. If we are hitting on all cylinders, we are without question a top 15 team this season IMO. But we have a lot of "ifs" that need to be addressed.
