    with Wagner, MAAR, Duncan gone for sure and Charles Matthews testing the NBA waters, Michigan will probably beat the #Michigan State Spartans by only single digits next year

    Might mix Gonzaga into that top group. They return everyone but Johnathan Williams, and I could see Brandon Clarke (transfer from San Jose St.) coming close to, if not matching, his production.

    I think Kansas and Duke are the top two, though, and would probably go in that order. But I don't think there are any particular true standout teams, at least compared to prior favorites coming into the year.

    tired of the media falling in love with duke getting a good class and crowning then after the last two relative disasters so i can’t have them 1 myself

    kansas would be unanimous if newman was back

    At least with last year's team, they had Allen to provide some sort of experience. They'll have nothing resembling that type of experience next year.

    I'd put Duke second by default right now, but that's more because I don't think the top is all that strong. Hell, you could make a solid case for Tennessee being in the top 5, and I don't think they are anything all that special.

    UNC is a definite top 10, and I'd consider them for top 5, but I think losing Berry will be fairly substantial. I do think UNC has more depth next year overall, and Little will be damn good right out of the gate, but the drop off at PG will hurt, unless Coby White is better than I expect as a freshman.

    that’s the hope with coby

    this is probably the most talented and deep team roy has had since 09 outside of pg. if coby lives up to the hype and seventh progresses even slightly we are gonna be really damn good.

    honestly i think we’ll miss a playmaking wing like theo more than joel. still would kill for one of them on this team

    Auburn, the defending SEC Champs should have Purifoy back before the SEC league play starts and hopefully Austin Wiley too.

    I can't remember what I did yesterday so I really can't confidently dispute that
     
  27. Kentucky should be in there based on how the preseason polls work.

    And Duke's only two returning upperclassmen that had any real role on the team are bit players Javin DeLaurier and Marques Bolden. Both juniors, Duke will have no seniors other than bench warmers and walk-ons. If Wenyen Gabriel comes back, that will be a better returning upperclassmen piece than either one of those two.

    Kentucky is going to suck again

    And let's go ahead and get this out of the way:

    Congrats on sucking slightly less than us

    ND has maybe it's all time best recruiting class coming in and low expectations. Early guess is we piss a lot of people off and are better than we should be.
     
  37. Will be interesting to see how Coach K handles his four best players having shooting listed in the weakness section of their ESPN scouting reports along with three of them being small forwards.
