    Most Dissapointing Team: Pittsburgh (Jamie Dixon aint seeing a final four this year as well)
    Most Dissapointing Player: Terrence Jones ( Kentucky...head case)

    Biggest Suprise Team: San Diego State (they will be a top 10-15 pre season team next year. Return all starters as well)
    Most Suprising Player: Tim Frazier (Penn State....seriously..who saw this coming...Big 12 teams missed out big time... http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask...95/tim-frazier )


    Top 10 players in college hoops right now( not necessarily for NBA but just college). Again, there are better players than some of these guys but these are having the biggest overall impact for their teams imo.

    Meanderings.......


    - apparantly Arizona State is finding out what North Carolina State already knew...that Herb Sendek, while an excellent coach, cannot relate to today's young 'yutes'. Makes me wonder if Jahii Carson will even come next year. Think Jerry Sloan...except Sloan walked away.

    - one of the best hirings in the off season was Ron Hunter by Georgia State. The CAA is quickly becoming a top notch mid major conference right in line with the MWC, MVC and CUSA. If you ever get to see Georgia State play in person...go..and watch Hunter coach em up. He is downright hilarious at times.

    - continuing w/ the Georgia State theme....they have an uber athletic senior swingman by the name of Josh Micheaux. He fills up a stat sheet (6 pts, 7 rebs, 3 ass, 2 steal per game) and always has one or two plays a game where you just go wtf? how did he do that. check him out if you have a chance.

    - Pat Knight and Mike James are showing others how its done. How whats done u ask? How to properly mend a rough relationship. See James is a flashy 6'0 guard who poured in 52 points last year. He is also a cocky mofo. Pat Knight is the coach who could not win with all seniors at Texas Tech. Well....James was acting up in November and Pat Knight put a quick stop to that, suspending him and saying that Lamar University has high standards that Mike is not meeting. Well instead of bitching it up and pouting...Mike James decided to shape up. As a result, Lamar is the class of the Southland Conference and Pat Knight is looking like he just might have found his niche. Lets compare the numbers before and after the suspension....10 pts, 2 rebs, 3 ass, 3 steals and a 1-2 team record. He missed 3 games and played 9 minutes in the fourth game than..........19 pts, 3.5 rebs, 2 ass, 2 steals and a 7-4 team record. Well done you two.

    - OT: Everytime(and its often) the song "You got the moves like Jagger" comes on i want to kill a baby.

    - Adam Moujeke (Wyoming): http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask...5/afam-muojeke once one of the promising young players out west (they got him from New York..what a steal) had his career derailed by injuries. Hang in there big guy.

    - Here is another few freshmen that the big boys past over: A shooter http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask...594/johnny-dee and a Slasher/scorer(love this guy) http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask...4/jordan-baker

    - Dylan Gerrity: Unselfish distributors are hard to come buy. A little known west coast team somehow nabbed one of the best distributors in the nation. Averaging almost 7 assists on a team with very few scorers. Well done and here is how Sacramento State got it done http://sacstatesports.com/2011/12/29...ts-coach-katz/

    - The First Team Missouri Valley Conference players could play tough with any other conferences first team in the nation.
    Doug McDermott (creighton) http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask...doug-mcdermott
    Rayvonte Rice (drake) http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask.../rayvonte-rice
    Colt Ryan (evansville) http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask...5780/colt-ryan
    Kyle Weems (missouri st) http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask...541/kyle-weems
    Toure Murray (wichita st) http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask...09/toure-murry
    Jake Odum (indiana st) http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask...5785/jake-odum
    Garret Stutz (wichita st) http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask.../garrett-stutz
    Taylor Brown (bradley) http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask...1/taylor-brown

    This 8 man team can hang with anyone imo.

    - Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, Deonte Burton, ............

  2. real quick before I get past the first part. Take UNC off that #1 line as a 1 seed doesn't get jiggleraped by 30 and replace them with Baylor. I'll now look for some more and enjoy these

    Dude, take A&M off ur list. They aren't an 11 seed or even going to sniff the tournament! They might be one of the worst 20 teams in the land right now

    i think UNC will rebound. But Baylor can definately jump to the one seed soon

  4. I'm an Illinois fan, and they were a 9 seed on your last bracketology...they've went out and beaten who they're supposed to beat, and also beat tOSU at home, are 15-3, 4-1 in B10 (#1 RPI conference by wide margin) , and they dropped to a 10?

    What gives?

    EDIT--I know it's based on predicted future results, but even if they go .500 in conference, they'll be a top 8 seed.

  11. Baylor has 7 wins inside the RPI top 44, 1 at home, has the #3 RPI and will be ranked #3 in both polls tomorrow. prestonluv has Baylor as a 2 seed right now.

    Texas A&M has ZERO wins inside the RPI top 100 all season, is 9-6 overall with the #190 RPI, and lost to Rice on their home court, where ISU beat them by 24 as well. pluv has them as an 11 seed.

    GREAT STUFF

    what about the aggy resume combined with future prediction to you says "11 seed" exactly?

  19. Weird...did they lose this weekend?

    It hasn't updated since the 9th, but 44th to 58th is a bit of a drop.

    Just saw they lost at home to GaTech, then played Wake (who blows).

    I know you are kidding, but Baylor should still be a 1 seed if they lose tomorrow.

    get ready for a good one

    Ok well... what about Virginia Tech? Did they drop out of the top 50 too or were you just making the statement that NYC counts as a "home" game for SU?

    40th here *shrug*... Wasn't meant to imply you were inaccurate. I sincerely thought you were counting NYC as home for SU which to be honest I wouldn't have much of an argument against in the context of playing a school from Virginia.

    I think Illini is going to fall off the face of the earth. Yes they had a big win this week but thats because Paul had a once in a lifetime game.
    Maybe i am wrong tho.

    8-11 seed is where they are heading imo

    what more do you want than a number 1 seed? They dont really have any POY candidate and are a well balanced team. They will be a tough out in the NCAA's and are a legitimate Final 4 candidate

    I think baylor loses 4 or 5 games down the stretch. They might still get a number one tho. but its just my hunch

    maybe i am wrong with the aggies cause i know you hate on them...so we differ on something..big suprise

    that RPI is a week old. the one I am using updates in realtime, lol

    Va Tech has since lost at home to FSU and lost on the road to a much lower rated BC team, they have a double down arrow on realtimerpi.com

  29. Looking for a team to follow in the tourney - I see you have Iona as a 13. Saw they just recently lost to Manhattan and Hofstra within the last 2 weeks.

    Haven't followed much this year - is Iona just a one and done team, or are their games worth following? They're supposed to have a sick offense.

    Iona has a kid named Scott Machado who is leading the nation in assists at 10.4.

    Averaging like 14 PPG/5 RPG/10.4 APG...really good player.

    Loss at home to Manhattan was not good tho.
