Congrats to ECI. IND=No. 1
Condolences to mfsman and GB:
"• The preseason rankings most likely to miss the NCAA tournament are No. 17 and No. 24, both of which have failed to land a bid eight times since the event expanded to 64 teams in 1986. No. 17 in this year's poll? Memphis. No. 24? Cincinnati."
DR: Pomeroy is mentioned in the article.
I'm excited for another season! This one looks to be great with tons of compelling story lines and matchups on the radar. I like how in basketball the top teams aren't afraid to play each other because a loss or two doesn't hurt you and makes you a better team by playing superior competition.
The Bearcats will not miss the tournament. They are loaded. Will be top 10 by seasons end. Book it.
Thanks 48 , IU may be pretty good BUT there not number 1 material yet , maybe next year , lol
Oh, you're just trying not to jinx it!
The state East of you had 25% of the Sweet 16(My City composed an eighth of it btw) and the one to the South had half of the Final 4 and (unfortunately) the Natl Champ, so........
One thing is for sure we are in the middle of it ECI, from where I sit(and you) the entire preseason top 5 and 8 of the top 25 teams are within a 3 hour drive. Hoops heaven is in our back yard. The WSJ did a piece on the area before the Sweet 16 last year, about how good the hoops are and how everyone loves their school and hates everyone else. Wish I had saved it.
***Edit: I would have to avg 80 to make it to Ann Arbor in 3 hours but you get the point.
