Why does nobody ever mention Texas A&M??? They finished only behind Texas and Kansas in teh Big XII and made it to the second round of the tournament. They SHOULD have beat LSU but lost on a prayer of a three point attempt in the closing seconds.
LSU went on to beat Duke, I'm not saying A&M would have beat Duke, but they should have beat LSU. You can go wherever you want to from there.
Not to mention, they return the entire team aside from Chris Walker, who was a walk on, and Eddie Smith, who was a non factor. ESPN has them ranked 10th pre-season. I think that ESPN knows a little bit more than most of us here.
Just food for thought.
