    I understand that perception. I don't think it's necessarily accurate that he's shot up real fast, so I'm not sure I'd say he's likely to implode. (If he were I'd think we'd have seen it before now.)

    Thrilling finish in the Illinois / Minnesota BIG tourney.

    I.U gets another crack at the Illini.

    But, if both Illinois and Minnesota don't get in the big dance, something is wrong.

    Real funny. You better go back and check out that '81 team. Hell, go check out the early 90's teams.

    Oh, by the reaction, I thought maybe it was something new for you. I'm glad my teams didn't go 20 years between highlights.

    The dunk was nasty. How does everyone feel about IU's chances at a final 4 run this year?

    Decent. They played well in the tourney last year. I think it's sometimes forgotten how well they played against Kentucky in the Sweet 16. Many people said at the time that had IU been playing anyone but that Kentucky team they'd have won.

    I also wouldn't be totally shocked if they got beat in the round of 32.

    I don't like the way IU finished its season. I also would be worried about a potential draw of NC State in the second. A potential match up with Syracuse could loom later.

    My worries about IU would be if they can't force the tempo and are forced to play a different brand of basketball. If they play their style they aren't going to lose. I do look forward to an IU Miami match up, that could be a classic.

    I don't think IU's chances are any better or worse than the other #1 seeds. Or probably 16 other teams.
    What I don't like about IU is how they have run hot and cold; it would be much better if the team were bringing things together, improving upon each game, but their progress has been more halting all season.

    All very valid points.

    There aren't any teams in the field that are strong both offensively and defensively on a consistent basis. Heck, even the #1 seed Louisville frequently has trouble scoring the ball. That's what makes this year so interesting. There is no way that 4 of the top 8 seeds will get to the Final Four ... not exactly a bold prediction, though.
