    Don’t really care where we’re ranked right now…all that matters is being #1 at seasons end

    KU at number 3 is ridiculous. But, pre-season polls are stupid. We may very well lose to Maryland on Friday

    Did anyone, independently or KSR, fact-check those stats from “Nicole Auerbach of the USA Today”. Hard to believe that only 52 players have gone to NBA Draft after just 1 year of college. I follow college hoops and NBA closely, and I would have guessed that number to be closer to 100. Seems like there are 50 players in the last 5 years alone…without factoring in the guys from 10 years ago like Carmelo and such.

    Pete Thameltoe works for SI, so why should we care about where they rank us?

    #7-Yeah it seems like alot more than 52 players have gone to the NBA after 1 year, but remember the one year rule hasn’t been around long. Most players used to either go right out of H.S or stick around for 3-4 years.

    1) High expectations much? We can’t expect Cal to win it again with freshmen two years in a row. If he does, great. But that can’t be our expectation. We will be good, and I will be happy with a good team regardless. He just needs to keep us in the hunt…hopefully in the top 25 through the year. That’s not a crazy expectation.

    A 31-point loss to Providence, a defeat to South Florida on Senior Night and a 49-point performance at Syracuse were all forgotten after Louisville won the Big East tournament and made it to the Final Four. HAR! HAR!

    Hood needs to cut his damn hair and make it look like it does in the picture all the time, right now he has a mop on his goofy head.

    4 is probably too high! This team has a long way to go.

    The national folks don’t know how good Cauley-Stein is yet. WCS was a “project”, a 7 foot wide-receiver, but he will be another basketball one and done. We already have a 6-11 one and one, WCS is 7-0 and Kyle Wiltjer is 6-11. This will be fun. We might lose 4 or 5 games early, stay away from us after that. The defensive lockdown potential is scary. Go Big Blue!
