    Miami a Final Four team?

    Been watching all their games for the last few weeks. They have the ability to crush storied programs. They can win hostile road games. They are tough as nails.

    As of right now, Michigan and Miami would be the only two teams that would shock me if they weren't in the Final4 this year.

    Got beat by Zona and it seems like they just didn't take a couple other games seriously. Yeah, they are pretty good. I don't know if I'd put them on Indiana, Arizona or Dukes level.

    Re: Miami a Final Four team?

    They've looked good but NC State wasn't full strength today, playing without Brown hurt them big time. I'm not sure they are final four good yet, but they just seem to be getting better and better. With Duke also dealing with injuries I think Miami is the best team in ACC although, I'm not sure that's saying a whole lot this year though.

    They clobbered Duke. I see them above Duke's level right now. With Kelly that might be a different story, but not Duke's active team.

    I wouldn't be surprised at all to see four non-No. 1 seeds in the Final Four this year.

    I know the SEC is weak, but Florida looks like a final four team to me.

    I would. First we don't even know who the best teams are yet, second, as a result, even the best teams are beatable.

    The ACC is absolutely terrible this year. Miami is good but I wouldn't write them in the final four just yet.

    Agreed, their defense has been phenomenal this year. And they have multiple guys who can put up points. They're a tough squad.

    Whoever wins the Michigan/Indiana game will be #1 but IMO Florida is the best team in the country.

    ISU could be where Miami is right now if they finished the road games.

    No way. They will be a 1 seed but they are not a better team than Michigan, Indiana, Duke w/Kelly, or a few others. They play in the SEC.

    I agree. That's the problem I have with a lot of teams. It's when I compare them to ISU. I think ISU is around a top 30 team and I can't say Miami is a whole lot better.
