    Iowa is a slight upgrade over Tennessee because of program history and the slightly higher historical prestige of the Big 10. Furthermore, Pearl has scores to settle in the Big 10. I think he wants to go back there and kick butt to get back at people who "wronged" him in the past. (Note: This is not casting blame on any school or person, just saying that is how Pearl might think about it...)
    I dont know Tennessee is a really young team, and I can only see them improving next year. They only had one senior on the whole roster this season.

    • I like Tennessee's upside, and this is really the first season where most of Pearl's own recruits will be on the team. He has a good group to work with, and Tennessee should remain good. The problem as I see it is that Pearl has a score to settle with the Big 10. He has a lot of different openings at schools in the Big 10 (Iowa included), and he could make that jump if he wanted to. I'm not saying it's a smart move. Just that Pearl might want to exact revenge...

              Meh. For the most part, the teams that were "supposed" to win, if you can rightfully say that in the NCAA tournament, have won. I mean, when you look at the sweet sixteen, the highest seeded team to make it there was UNLV, #7. The highest seeded team to make it to the elite eight, was oregon, #3. And of course, the final four is yielding 2 number one's, and two two's.

              I don't know. Maybe after last year, this one just seems a little dull to me.

                Like I said not a ton of upsets. Upsets do not determine if it is good or not. I've enjoyed this years a lot more than last year. I'd take these good close games over upsets anyday.

                  All these games have been so competitive and it's been so great. I would prefer these games compared to a Cinderella story

                  • this tourney has been great. there have been multiple upsets, but not as many as last year, i also liked that there were so many comebacks and tight games. I mention comebacks mainly because that is how my boys made the final four.

                          This we're all a little sketchy on. Some LOI's have clauses in them which allow players to back out in the event of a coaching change. Calathes acted like he could/would follow Billy D easily....

                          In most of these cases the AD will let the player out of the LOI for public relations purposes, plus you don't want someone playing for you that doesn't want to be there.

                              • If you're a big time program, why would you waste a scholarship on a player who doesn't want to be there? The guy isn't going to want to play, isn't going to give effort, and is going to transfer after a year. Don't pass up a guy who will just waste a year in your program, when you can release him, spin it as him being a spoiled brat, and leave yourself open to late transfers or late signees.
