Do you think will take the National Championship next season??

My early predictions have to be Duke, KU (I love Hinrich), and I think UConn will surprise a lot of people....my boy Denham Brown is comin down there to tear up the place...

Kansas Jayhawks is KU and Kentucky is UK. I just changed it to KU for Kansas. No Biggie.

My favorite goes to my alma mater. I already have a final four.

West-Arizona
East-UNC
Midwest-Kansas
Southeast-Oregon

That is a bold statment by me, but who cares.

I always like to put a sleeper in there. Even though DUKE has an outstanding class coming in with Dahanty Jones and others, but i feel the loss of Dunleavy, Boozer, and Williams will hurt them. I think they will make Elite 8. The lost won't hurt them hard, but right now there are so many good teams now.

That is cool about the KU UK thing. The funny thing. KU's offical name is Univeristy of Kansas and UK's is Kentucky University. So should it be the other way? But I like it as KU than UK for Kansas.

I wouldn't bet on KU going to the final four just yet

Over the past ten years they've been in the top 3-5 teams talentwise in the country, easily. They've had teams that had four or five NBA players on it at the same time. Yet they still have only been to one or two final fours since their championship in 88 or whenever it was. They won't make it this year either. They've got Collison and Hinrich, with Simien, Langford, and Miles as their starters. That's probably one of the better starting fives in the country, but they have absolutely NO DEPTH. No one off the bench will be a threat to score, and at best their good defenders. Their only backups in the post are a juco, Jeff Graves, and a project highschool guy. If Collison or Simien get into foul trouble then they better pray or something. Their incoming recruits don't look much better, either. Roy Williams should retire while he's on top, because it's only going downhill from here.

Wow a typical MU fan! You have not heard, KU, just got two new walkons with college experence, so there are some depth. Well I shoul dnot talk. MU will fall this season, not much though. Losing Rush and Gilbert will hurt. Bryant never played to potential. Author Johnson needs to play better. Dooling is gone even though he sucks, but he was depth at PG. You guys have almost a rookie PG with that JUCO player coming up. there is really only one playerthat is worth while on Mizzou. I just draw a blank on his name now, sorry.

Oklahoma

OU will win it all, or at least go to the Elite 8 (barring major injuries). They have one of the top players in the country, guard Hollis Price, with PG Quannas White, G Ebi Ere, C Jabahri Brown, and freshman PF Kevin Bookout in the starting lineup. They also have top 25 HS senior last year DeAngelo Alexander, Johnnie Gilbert, and Blake Johnston. This is a very deep team, and can be better than last year's Final 4 team.
