    You need good "D" to win and Cuse has that but their offense blows, that's where they will lose in the tourney. Florida will "D" your ass up and put the ball in the cylinder. Kentucky will make you look stupid on the boards and they obviously can score. Its teams like that that we will see at the end. Cuse in definitely not one.

    Florida has a terrible pace. They have benefited from playing in a very shit conference. I wouldn't call them offensively gifted per se. Same with Kentucky. They're looking impressive vs scrubs.

    SEC is worse than the Big East, A10 and ACC. That's crazy.

    BC is terrible.

    They're worse than USC. USC is a dumpster fire of a basketball team this year. Just bad. I don't give a shit how jacked up they are, you don't lose to that at home.

    These guys aren't even CBI worthy.

    Syracuse and Shitburgh are the worst teams in the country

    Just another February swoon for Syracuse. The offense isn't as bad as it looks, shots just aren't falling right now. Still getting good looks and have the pieces to turn it around. Get at me in March with how bad they suck when they're in the Elite 8 minimum.

    Offense isn't great, but it will be the draw that makes or breaks them IMO. Some teams have all the pieces to get past all sorts of teams. I think 'Cuse has to have the right match-ups to progress past the first week.

    Cautious outlook you have there. I'm not concerned about any team that could be in the 8/9 game. Still a great chance to be in Buffalo and the way Syracuse plays, they're never out of a game. Built for the tourney, grind it out defense and efficient offense when things are clicking. Once the whistles tighten up in the tourney, CJ and Grant will be feasting at the line.

    Probably the worst loss a number 1 team has ever had or damn close. Shit happens though, especially when the other team shoots 50% from three and you shoot 30% for the game.

    Sorry Chalkydog, the Atlantic 10 can't touch the SEC and the ACC is weak. The Big East is good but Florida and UK would be 1 & 2 in any of those conferences as well.

    Look up Conference RPI and be amazed. SEC is awful. I don't think UK would be top 3 in the ACC. Florida would be right there with Syracuse. I have no doubt the top 2 teams in the SEC are good, the rest of the conference is fukkin terrible.

    SEC is 7th in RPI and 7th in projected NCAA teams. Behind every conference you listed.

    Well behind the B1G, Big 12 and PAC.

    ACC is actually a lot better than I thought. They just have so many teams, and so many bad teams that I really had a bad perception about it. It's possible to have a real cake schedule in the ACC if you get lucky enough to load up on these cake teams. Anyway, wanted to look at this for a bit

    Based on kenpom: (I pointed out top 50, because if you're outside of that you're not even really an NCAA team).

    Same type of schedule every year for them. Success in the tourny will depend on who they draw...ala a good interior passing team/3 point shooting team/someone with a skilled center. I'd also like to see how they perform in the ACC tourny and at Virginia on Saturday, obviously. That being said I see them falling in the Elite 8 most likely...and I'm a Cuse homer.
