IU: Lost some absolutely horrible games away from Assembly Hall. Nebraska? Really? Hoosiers need to show they can win without home cooking.
If these are your "best" teams, it is a down year for hoops.
This is why they play the games...
Could easily see a mid major winning it next year like Dab said; a senior-laden mid major especially.
It has nothing to do with me being an IU fan. If you want to see the definition of "blind bias" just take a look in the mirror.
I personally feel that the college game has been down for quite a while now. Last year was not a spectacular year period. I expect to see the same next season.
IU and Louisville are legit teams aside from any of their "struggles" last season. Notre Dame returns every starter, NC State could be next year's Mizzou. Michigan, Michigan St, and Ohio State lost some key guys but have solid foundations.
I do think there are a couple of Mid-Majors that will play into the mix. Creighton will be tough with their stud. Butler was pretty dang good last year, let's see how they do playing in the A-10.
