    Are the Tar Heels a done deal to win the nat'l championship?

    North Carolina was a unamious selection in both both polls for the number one position. Are they really that much better than any other college bb team?

    If college basketball had a BCS type format, then yes. Otherwise, a truly great team may only have a 50/50 chance at best.

    Re: Are the Tar Heels a done deal to win the nat'l championship?

    They are crazy good. I do not know if I see a loss on their regular season schedule, however if Tyler goes down again do not count a loss out, depending on when/if he goes down (yes, he is that good to make/break that team now that Zeller is out). I do see them as a Final Four team, but further then that, it is still too early.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    I really hope so. If for no other reason than it will make KU fans go insane.

    Re: Are the Tar Heels a done deal to win the nat'l championship?

    If college basketball worked logically, then yes. But, as posted before, it only takes one off night for them, or one superior night from somebody else (See Villanova, 1984), and the best team all year doesn't win it.

    Way too early to call UNC a guarantee.

    It would be fun to watch Kansas fans go crazy, though.

    Re: Are the Tar Heels a done deal to win the nat'l championship?

    No.

    Seems like everyone is making a big deal out of their recent blow out win over Michigan State. That means nothing to me seeing as Michigan State is overrated year after year and was blown out by Maryland the week before. It's early and they look really good but I'd like to see more before I hand them the trophy.

    I'm not sure why KU fans would go crazy at all. I'd much rather see Roy win this year than other team in the current top 5, (UConn, Pitt, Duke, Gonzaga) actually

    I'm fully convinced KU got the better coach out of the deal, in more big and small ways than I could even to begin to explain, because the write-up could be pages long.

    And, no, there are no guarantees in the tournament as has already been pointed out. Even if you take out any probability of UNC getting eliminated before the Final Four, assuming they would be 6 point favorites in both Final Four games, their odds would be less than 50% to win it all.

    It only takes one off night in March....they can have plenty of off nights before then.

    I would like to know what makes you think KU got the better coach out of the deal?

    I would love to see Gonzaga get one! That's the old Cinderalla (not one now) that rose all the way to the top. I'd love it!

    Plus, that's a reminder to all of us that, at least in college basketball, it can happen anywhere, anytime, for anybody. We've been right there. It would be a great reminder for us that we can be there all the way to the end.

    Go, Zags, Go!
