"It's a lot easier being a drug dealer than an AAU coach" - this guy. Tell me something I don't know. I mean, don't think but have never tried either.
As pointless as it is this early in the season, Lunardi's 1st Bracketology since the season started came out today. In the preseason one, he projected us as a 3 seed, and clearly a lot of things have changed in college basketball since. We are now sitting as a #8 seed in the East bracket going up against Dayton. Seeing as the best win we have so far is against RPI (ESPN) #103 FSU, and our worst loss is RPI #153 Charlotte, 8th seed seems very valid and maybe even a bit generous. Of course, while still interesting, this all means nothing, especially before conference play has begun.
Other interesting points:
- #1 seeds - Arizona, Syracuse, Louisville, OSU
- Big Ten teams (tied with ACC for the most teams with 7) - #1 OSU, #2 MSU, #2 Wisconsin, #6 Iowa, #8 U of M, #10 Indiana, #11 Minnesota
- FSU (#11) is the only team we beat projected to make it to the tourney. Charlotte is our only loss not projected to make it.
Michigan vs. #1 Arizona Wildcats
Kenpom predicts Michigan by 1
I'm pretty surprised this hadn't been posted yet so I figured I would create some morning discussion.
I think we see an in-shape Mitch M-F'in McGary dominate this game and do what he did last year in the NCAA tourney. I'm expecteding 24 points from him to go with 12 boards and 3 steals. Stauskas is close behind him with 20 pts including 3-5 from behind the arc.
Michigan pulls the upset at home against the #1 team in college basketball.
Michigan 65 - Arizona 59
espn's weekly rookie rankings have trey #3 and THJ # 4.
insider, unfortunatley: http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/players/rookies/rankings
but the top 10 is:
- Steve Adams
- Nate Wolters
others of note - 12. McLemore; 18. Zeller; 40. glen rice jr.; 42 alex len; 44. Shabazz Muhammad
Don't know if this is thread worthy but they have been playing much better than expected this early in their NBA career's. Attached are Tim's Highlight's and a few of Trey's better games. Hope to see much more of this for years to come!
