Re: Illinois Fan Thread.
Too many people place too much emphasis on the previous year's tourney performance. I don't think Michigan State's a Top 5 team because they went to the title game. Kansas could've made a couple more plays and knocked them off in the Sweet 16 and I still think Michigan State is a Top 5 team this year because they have tremendous depth and athleticism at every position except center.
So I guess people are high on Michigan because they had a strong showing against Clemson and Oklahoma, and not as high on Minnesota because they weren't so great against Texas.
