2016-17 NCAA Basketball Thread

Recommended Posts

So I'm hearing UNC is # 1 in every preseason poll on the planet, and they are considering cancelling the NCAA Tournament next year and just handing them the crown now.  Thoughts for next year guys??

PSA:

Unless you talk to yourself in this thread for the entire year, are a middle-aged non alum (and live very far away) of the school you root for, and have a *deep special connection*, you are a frontrunner.

UNCW will never make a FF

afosomf is living in his mom's basement

says the guy who makes an excuse every time Carolina wins and posts nothing but fraudulent info regarding UNC.

 

We already know what a fraud you are, it's been proven.

nyjunk is pretty entertaining for a middle-aged, non-alum fanboy with a *special connection* who has little to nothing to offer in terms of actual basketball insight.

Junk blows the pats more than Tx does for sure. Maybe he was a Cheats ballgirl at one time

"wins" doesn't mean championships but they did win the ACC reg season title, ACC postseason title and East regional this season.

There won't be anything coming, they have been punished enough for something they didn't do.  They have already killed recruiting and stolen a championship from them, that is more than enough. Lucky for you the school you root for is private or that 2010 banner would be down already among others.

you know what is funny, in the NBA as soon as Colangelo went to Philly they wanted to make sure he didn't have any edge from USA basketball but in college no one did a thing about the HUGE advantages gained by K and USA basketball.

Duke will coast to a national championship if 4 things happen:  (i) Allen returns; (ii) Jefferson gets a medical redshirt; (iii) Giles is 100%; and (iv) Bolden signs.  So far 2 of the 4 have happened.  We should find out about Bolden shortly.

it is never easy winning w/ freshman, they will be the favorite but I wouldn't say they will coast to anything.

Agreed, there is always the "any given Sunday" possibility in a one-game elimination format, and even 2015 Kentucky lost in the tourney, despite having multiple 1st round picks and future NBA all-stars on the roster.

and it's tough w/ mostly freshman.  Uk has mostly been the most talented team in the Country since Cal went to UK and they have 1 title(and if Kendall Marshall doesn't get hurt they may not have that one).  Duke is definitely the favorite though.

Especially if Bolden signs (but maybe even if he doesn't), this will be the deepest Duke team in recent memory, with a very nice mix of veterans and freshman.  Of course, Coach K will still find a way to keep the rotation to 8 (my biggest pet peeve about his post-Wojo/Langdon coaching career) and drive Jeter and maybe Thornton to other schools.

K doesn't like deep, there will be many unhappy players not getting PT they think they deserve.

Yep -- it drives me crazy.  Gbinije is one of the latest examples and there will be others this year, no doubt.

He wins so no one worries about it but that is his one weakness.

Kennedy Meeks has announced he is returning for his senior season.  Smart move and if jackson returns this could be a FF caliber team.

Justin Jackson is returning for his Junior season.  This is a definite top 10 team that can compete for the Final Four, a lot of experience and a lot of talent.  Not as much talent as a few teams out there but they should be able to compete with anyone.
