    I've been a fan for about 8 years now. I don't see them losing this year. With J.J Redick and Sheldon Williams, they have to be the most talented team this year.

    They may lose a game(s) during the conference season but they are definitely the USC Trojans of college basketball and should definitely win the NCAA championship in the spring.

    They are a great team. But they will loose this year. They almost lost at home to Virginia Tech. The ACC is always tough and I do not see them going through all those teams and a tourney undefeated.

    We're still in December and you're talking up an undefeated season? Never mess with sports karma like that. [​IMG]

    They have 21 regular season games left, a conference tournament and the NCAA Tournament. Winning all those games, including ACC games on the road, is a pretty tall order. All it takes is for Redick to have a bad game shooting, and there goes your undefeated season.

    A few years ago, Duke was thought to be an absolute lock to win the NCAA Tournament, and a funny thing happened. They ran into an Indiana team that were equally as talented and IU won the game, going on to make it to the championship game that year. (btw, that was one of my best moments picking the NCAA Tournament when I picked IU over Duke :D )

    Blue Devils? (turns to spit on the ground) as a UNC fan I can't stand them. I hope they loose, and I think they will.

    I am an Indiana fan. I think they are going to have a strong team this year. They hung with the Blue Devils a couple weeks back.

    By the way Michigan was undefeated until today. They lost to UCLA 68 to 61 not a bad loss by any means.

    I will respect your ignorance for the time being. [​IMG]

    Can't stand UNC either. It's the UK Wildcats all the way. We've had a few bumps this season, but we always recover, as shown with our massacre of Louisville this weekend. As of Jan. 14 we will have Morris back too. Don't count us out yet.

    I'm an Indiana fan as well and I'm wondering who counts Kentucky out of anything? As you might expect, I can't stand Kentucky and was thrilled at the 26 point beatdown of the Kittycats on 12/10. :D

    I respect Kentucky a lot. I lived in southern Indiana for two years and there were a good number of UK fans there.

    Yes, it was a humbling experience. :eek: I would savor it while you can. :D It only took Mike Davis six times to actually beat us. He should be proud to give the Hoosiers their second win in 12 games. It was definitely a wake up call for the Cats. I remember a few years ago when Louisville beat UK, by I think 20, and we went on to win all the rest of our games only to be beat by Marquette in the elite 8. I have faith that Tubby will keep the Cats together.

    Possibly, but at least we won't be losing to Tar Heels this year. :D

    I would not be so sure of that...UNC is not the team they had last year, but they can still be good. I would not be so confident.
