            I said that Kansas was the best team in the nation over 2 weeks because most posters started ranking their top 10 teams...You called me out on it without any facts whatsoever, and you have still yet to tell me how why Kansas isn't the best team in the nation.

            Did I ever say that KU was more deserving of the #1 ranking by the polls? No, but I simply stated that I thought they were the best team in the nation.

            "Who knows if they can even beat a #9?" Well they beat a #9 last year, and besides, you can say that about every team in the country...you still have to play the games.

            As for the choking, I don't really see your point, they choked when the team was full of freshman and sophmores, the team has grown up.

            No if you really have a problem with me expressing my opinions, I apologize and suggest you no longer read message boards.

            Finally, I'm going to ask you once more, why is UNC or any other team better than Kansas. Be sure to provide actual evidence this time, not just "UNC is best"

            How bout this, tell me if this is good enough evidence for you....

            Because UNC is ranked number one, and Kansas is ******* not. Is that understandable? That's why UNC is better than Kansas.

            And it does matter about what happens in past tournaments for a number of reasons.

            A) Some of the players who were members of previous Kansas teams that choked are still on the team.

            B) Since they've choked many times recently, it's going to be on their mind so that they can prove that they're not the same Kansas team, it's additional pressure and additional nervousness.

                • just remember to use your back hand, that way if they press charges it is a misdemeanor.

                    A) Like who? Simien, Myles, Langford all left bud. Darnell and RR were freshmen that year and barely even played.

                    B) The last time Kansas choked was in 05 against Bucknell. Unless you call getting to the Elite 8 and losing to a very good UCLA team choking. The bottom line is that this Kansas team is the same team that made it that far last year, with another year of experience under their belt. The only player the lost is Julian Wright, but his absence has allowed Shady to emerge. There is no reason to think this team can't do last years team one better and reach the Final Four. If you had to pick a favorite, they would be one of your top options this year. The only way they lose is if they lay a HUGE egg. All three losses this year they didn't show up, and two of those games they still had chances to win.

                        A. So why do we have a tournament? If the number 1 team is the best team, then we should just give them the title right? Polls mean nothing...Florida was unranked before they won their first NCAA title, it's a mute point.

                        B. Your point would make sense if we still had the 2005 team, which was full of Roy Williams' seniors who didn't want to buy into Bill Self's system...Saying that just because we got upset by Bucknell means that we will choke again is a dumb point...obivisouly, as with every other team in the nation, an upset is possible, but just because we lost to Bucknell several years ago doesn't mean we'll be upset again.

                        What is the cause-effect relationship between the two...saying that 'Oh, Kansas choked before means they'll choke again' is quite honestly dumb. Every major program has been upset before, does that mean they'll choke again this year?

                          • VCU got knocked out of the CAA tourney...Anyone think they'll get an at-large bid? They're 24-6 with a RPI of 45

                                I don't think they'll make it....outside of the win against Maryland they haven't beaten many good teams
