    They all picked us to win last year, and we know how that panned out. That’s why we play the games!

    Sorry, Mrs. T.T. , but Cal / UK knows PLENTY about choking. TWICE vs UConvicts and again last year against the Wisconsin White Cheddars. I love my Cats, and bleed blue 2nd to none, but let’s not kid ourselves.

      Both of those games were in the Final Four, right?

      I’m sorry: all three of those games, correct?

      What’s your point, Big Board?? Do you need someone to explain the meaning of “choking” to you….just as Mrs. T.T. obviously does?

      I was just unsure if you meant Duke-Lehigh-Mercer-type choking, or Kansas-Bucknell-Bradley-VCU-Northern Iowa-Stanford-Wichita State-type choking???

      I’m sure you are an expert on choking. 🙂

      Here, choke on this: D

    UNC should be banned from post season play, with 20 years of fake classes and cheating they shouldn’t compete for the title but the NCAA is afraid of them!

    Shall be surprised if UNC even wins the ACC.

    Dick Vitale has Duke in his Final Four? Shocker.

    I love you, Vitale, but your homer-ism is really showing… 😉

    UNC and Maryland are the sexy picks this year… Not really concerned about either of them. I’ll be interested to see how Kansas plays down the stretch. They are prone to choking, but if you’re in the hunt enough, eventually you’re going to sniff something out. I think it could be another UK – KU final. If we can get to the Final 4, anything can happen (as we have seen over the last few years)

      Kansas has some good bigs, but I think their guards are sub-par. I am curious to see how they’ll play this season.

      Yeah I mean Mason & Selden are alright, but I wouldn’t trade our guards for theirs… That UK-KU game in January will be a GREAT matchup in an extremely hostile environment. Would love to make that trip.

      Agreed. We’re playing in a couple of the most historic venues in college basketball this season. It would be really fun to go in person.

    I give Maryland til February for the wheels to fall off.

      Oh yeah, almost forgot!!! They’ll definitely choke too. Like always.

      Wait, I thought “cats paw” said he was a UK fan, and now he’s pulling for Gonzaga? 😉
