I am a little tired of starting every year with the same teams alway being placed at the top just because they got boatloads of unproven talent. Look at how the year ended for KU and Bill Self, they got it hadned to them in the Big 12 tourney and the NCAA's. They have one great player go down and they can't win a game. This is when coaching should come into play, and even though Self is a good coach, I am not sure he is a great coach. Even without their star center, theuy still had enough talent to win it all, and they did not. I am no longer buying into how "talented" these big name programs are, they are very beatable. Ity takes more than talent to win at the highest levels.
    Oh no! You might as well have sent Tuco a personal invitation to this thread.

    In before Tuco...

    Wisconsin returns Sam Dekker and Frank Kaminsky along with some pretty solid contributors in Traevon Jackson, Josh Gasser and Nigel Hayes. That's a good team and that's why I put them 3rd. Kentucky and Arizona are just that much better. Arizona is stacked for the next couple years and Kentucky is Kentucky when it comes to elite talent.

    Congrats on being the first person to mention Iowa in this thread! There always has to be someone.

    That being said, without Marble I don't see them anywhere in the top 40. NIT runner-up again would be hilarious!

    Nebraska is my alternate


    Hoiberg: I have a unique situation here. I grew up here. I went to college here. My family is close and my wife's family is close. I know everyone in the community and my family is very comfortable here. My daughter has dreamed about one thing and that's going to Iowa State. The NBA is great and I love the NBA, but I love Iowa State and the opportunity I have here. We've really built something special and I think we've got real momentum to keep it going even more.

    Re: Preseason Top 25

    Will we be ranked to start the year? We are high on Ejim and Kane's replacements but outsiders may see them as a mediocre MAC transfer and a malcontent.

    But we return Georges Niang and Monte Morris. That's a Wooden Award watch list guy and potential first team All-American along with the NCAA record holder for assist-to-turnover ratio. We'll be ranked somewhere in the mid to late teens. Most media outlets are all aboard the Hoiberg Hype Train these days.
