    I hate to make excuses after a loss, and I know anything can happen in a single elimination tournament, but anyone who thinks Florida's not clearly the team to beat is clearly out of their minds.

    Oh, they're the team to beat, to be sure.

    But Kansas proved they can beat them. And that was without any kind of meaningful contributions from Sherrod Collins or Sasha Kahn.

    Yes that's what I said. You implied that I was in a mindless zombie for believing that Krzyzewski has class. I have first hand knowledge that he is a man of class and character, how does that make me a "mindless zombie". So when you said we agree to disagree, I'd have to agree that you think I am just mindlessly believing that he is classy or has character because Dick Vitale or ESPN told me to. I'm sorry that's not the case for me, maybe for some, but not me, I don't know what else to say.

    The first weekend. I question their ability to adapt and succeed playing different styles, and once you get to the Sweet 16 the longer arms and higher verticals don't mean a thing. Depending on the draw they may sneak back into the Elite 8, which is no small feat, but I don't see them having enough horses to make it to Atlanta.

It seems like teams with winning records take more free throws than their opponents. These are the only two teams I checked though.
    These stats are from http://northcarolina.rivals.com/bstats.asp?team=UNC
    Not to mention that these teams generally have superior athletes. Their competition is slower, etc. so it stands to reason they will commit more fouls than the superior team.

    I have a few buddies that will be all PO'd about a game if the foul calls are lopsided. Well, if you have one team that has speed and drives the bucket and they are playing a slower team, I'd expect their to be a pretty good gap in the amount of fouls called on the teams.

    P.S. I wish the ground would open up and swallow DUKE and UNC.

    I think people have to watch out - there's not much of "George Mason"-type team out there. What could happen are known schools that don't have much basketball history could be playing for the big one.

    I mean, it's not far-fetched to have a Florida-Ohio State-Texas A&M-Washington State final 4.

    Or, a Wisconsin, Southern Illinois, Virignia Tech, Memphis final 4.

    This year, like last year, is highly unpredictable.

    Don't get me wrong--I like Florida. But the only one who was throwing up the night they lost to Florida State was Billy Donovan.

    I didn't get to see that game, did Florida give it away or did Vandy have the game of their lives? I notice that they shot 56% from the field and 10-22 from 3, so I'm leaning toward believing that Vandy played great.

    As a Florida fan I'm glad for the loss, a win streak would be more added pressure on a team trying to repeat.

    Last year Florida 7-6 over the last 13 before winning the rest, losses in the right place can be good.
    Go Gators!

    Funny how a few days ago people were saying that Indiana could compete with the big two and Florida was unbeatable. The road is a great equalizer. Looks like Wisconsin at OSU could be #1 vs #2, although the Badgers have a tough one in East Lansing before then.

    And, of course in the long run, Florida is still the team to beat.

    Doesn't look too good for me this year other than UNC.

    I think Kent still has a shot at 20 wins in what is supposed to be a rebuilding year. And of course there's the chance to win in the MAC tournament. However, if any MAC team is built to get beyond the first round, it's probably Akron. I just hope one of the subpar teams from the MAC West doesn't win the tournament.

    I may talk tough for Florida, and they are still the best team, but they've looked fat and happy over the last couple weeks. Giving up big leads or having to mount comebacks over and over again is dangerous.

    A loss now isn't the worst thing to happen.

    March will be fun.


    By the way: Did anyone else see (Vandy Coach) Kevin Stallings slap Noah's hands when he tried to grab the ball from him? Weird.
