Re: 07-08 KU vs 08-09 UNC
I give the edge to UNC. A lot of their players got significantly better over the summer, Lawson, Deon, and Green to name a few. Plus they add Ed Davis, who looks pretty nasty for a freshmen.
During the season last year, even near the end going into final four weekend, Kansas was not considered the prohibitive favorite to win it all. The final four was Kansas, Memphis, UCLA, and UNC. If anything those four teams were considered to be pretty level. But this year, since preseason UNC has been the prohibitive favorite to win it all, and that hasn't changed at all during the first month of this season.
