and obviously the book's nowhere near closed yet, but that 5* (Keith Frazier) struggled a bit last year on and off the court.

this is SMU's recruiting class after Mudiay left for China:
If you can't/don't want to click the link, they're bringing in a zero man recruiting class. They have three transfers coming in, but only one is confirmed to be eligible this year, and none of the three have been gamebreakers at previous stops.

It really looks like Anthony Lee, Keita Bates-Diop and D'Angelo Russell will be immediate contributors. With Scott, Williams and Thompson back, there's probably enough leadership to carry the team throught he B1G gauntlet if the freshmen contribute. MSU makes less sense because they lost the leaders on a team that underachieved last year until the tournament and don't add much other than a transfer who may or may not contribute.

Larry Brown can't coach up a team. I saw that with the Pistons, he's a damn good coach. Also, I think Michigan is probably appropriately ranked. My confusion is more about SMU losing two starters and not bringing in a single recruit because Mudiay attended a glorified summer camp moonlighting as a high school. They're the same team that missed the tournament last year, minus two starters (Yes, I'm aware they finished 30th in KenPom; still have to justify a 7 spot jump if that's a barometer you prefer).

an SMU team that lost Mudiay to China doesn't really make sense to me.

I think this is an instance where connecting the dots makes it hard for me to believe that this is all a farce. The comments from Denise Illitch, combined with other reports, and the influence of it being a bye week for football, lend some credence to whatever reporting ESPN has done on this story.

fun conference season. Just looking at the lineup of teams, if things break the right way, the B1G could very well get 9 teams into the tournament, assuming the top 7 from this poll make it and two of Illinois, IU and Maryland sneak in. If Illinois can get some wins against Memphis/Baylor, Villanova, Oregon and Mizzou in the non-conference, it seems likely.

with what I'm expecting them to do this season. Offense was bad enough last season with George and Stephenson. Good news is, they'll have their 1st round pick in 2015 in a draft class heavy on big men. If the rumors about the team shopping Hibbert are true, the team may just be bad enough this year to replace him with a top 5 pick come June. Hope the games are still enjoyable for you this year.

how was the tone of that Pacers debate you were having with your friends? Any guess at their win total for the year with no PG or Lance?

that Romine is starting yet again. Just feel like there's more upside in playing Suarez. At least there's a chance he'll do something positive with the bat.
