    I can't imagine Wade ever putting on a red sweater. He may go to neutral site games but I doubt he cares much about IU.

    Oh really? Hmmmmmmmmmmm. He cares about IU because Crean is there. Of course Cal coached James in college, so I understand the the bond.

    I think you're missing the point. James didn't play anywhere in college so he has no allegiance to worry about, he can openly support UK, which clearly he already does. So your sarcastic comment about his bond doesn't make any sense. Yes, Wade played for Crean but obviously not at IU, so while he supports Crean he's not showing up in Bloomington in IU gear.

    Nope, but he will go to OSU games with Bronny.

    I am not missing any point. And my comment does make sense. James has no ties to UK. Wade does with IU for the simple fact he played college ball for Crean. 'Bron can change his allegiance at any given time, as you stated he has none to worry about. But Wade will always be tied to Crean, just as Rose will always be tied to Cal. Just sayin'.

    BTW.......Wade was in Bloomington while the Heat were playing the Pacers........

    OK, so if we want to play the Wade was coached by Crean card..

    It just so happens Cal coached an MVP in college.

    Not playing any card. The current discussion was about James helping UK recruiting. I just said I hope WMR was right and that Wade would help IU. It has nothing to do with who played for who.

    BTW Lex, it just so happens that Crean coached a guy that has won two rings. I dont understand the "MVP" reference.

    Re: UK Basketball 8th Edition

    Now let me pay you Hoosiers a compliment: Zeller has a HELL OF a chance to win NPOY, IMO. Ferrell should also help in getting Zeller the ball in spots where he can score it more effectively/easily. Clear B10 favorite.

    I do think Michigan will be a stiff challenge for you guys in the B10.

    Isn't this supposed to be Tubby's best team ever at Minny?

    I think Ohio State will take a step back next year.

    What do you guys think, particularly what I posted about your rivals in the B10? Is there a team I'm leaving out who could be a contender?

    Well, I'm just pointing out that Cal has coached plenty of guys that have succeeded...not that he needs help recruiting at this point.

    Here's the MVP reference:

    Re: UK #1 Article

    Does it make any other UK fans nervous to start out that high? Even last year's team wasn't hyped as #1 by anyone outside of us, really. It was all UNC this..UNC that going into the year.

    IMO, there's no way the '12-'13 team is close to the National Title team. Of course..they're not playing each other.

    It just makes me nervous to start out so highly regarded with a roster I know so little about. All I can think of are some recent highly ranked flameouts -- K State and Michigan State a few years ago, UConn last year. I just don't have much confidence this early...but it will come.

    I think the lack of tournament experience will hurt the upcoming team. Wiltjer is the only one with any experience at all and that isn't much. Saying that the 2010-11 team didn't have much experience either and came very close to winning it all. So you never know. I do think this years team will be a lot like the 10-11 team. They may takes some lumps,especially on the road. But in the end turn out pretty good.

    Re: UK Basketball 8th Edition

    Best news is this: look at the competition. 2010-2011 had some incredible teams (some of whom we ended up beating on the way to the Final Four).

    This season, the two "best" teams heading into the season according to the experts are IU and UL. Looking at mock drafts, it is obvious that UK has the most NBA talent of the three, and, judging by history, they will be hitting their peak right around March.

    Yogi should give us what we lacked last year, a true point guard. Hulls is a tough player but more suited for the SG. The only thing I am concerned about is chemistry. Yogi's minutes will have to come from somewhere, but regardless it is a good problem to have and they will be the B1G's clear front runner.

    IMO, Michigan is a FF contender. They have a few holes to fill with some senior losses and to me an unexcpected tranfer loss, but they did what they did last year without any post presence. That should be taken care of this year.

    I think last year was Tubby's best coaching job at Minny. He lost his best player for the year and they had their chance coming down the stretch. I think they only lose Sampson III and they get Trevor back. They are a tournament team but I dont see them finishing in the top 4 in the conference.

    Ohio St. is a curious one. On paper it might appear they will take a step back, but I dont see it that way. It is DeShaun's team now and I think they will be fine and challenge for the conference title.

    I think that Michigan St and Iowa are two teams to watch. Izzo gets so much out of his Spartans and they have a great class coming in. Iowa did great last year and Fran has the Hawks heading in the right direction.
