    Kansas isn't as good as advertised

    They were struggling with ULMonroe. I think OSU runs away with the title this year and fairly comfortably at that.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Bill Self and Kansas will win it again. There are a couple games every year they look vulnerable in the non-conference but they'll win the league again.

    Travis Ford went to the Scott Drew School of Coaching and will hold that team back.

    Make yourself familiar with Bill Self. Go look him up on Wikipedia or something.

    Early season games are always an indicator of future conference standing.

    State...usually like what you post. Not sure about this one (I'm a bit passive-agressive).

    By that rationale, Iowa is Final Four bound.

    Let us know how comfortable you are with this pick mid February. Right now this is crazy.

    Re: Kansas isn't as good as advertised

    This thread solidifies my decision to have State43 on my ignore list



    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.

    I'd never pick against a team who gets to play 8 on 5 through the conference season.

    Re: Kansas isn't as good as advertised

    Oh I am way early for sure. But watching them play, they are not as seasoned in years past for obvious reasons (Most are rookies). I just wasn't overly impressed with them is all. I will stand by my statement that OSU rolls them this year. Backflip part 2.
