Default Fearless Predictions Thread

Post em!

-Mike Davis will lead the Big Ten in rebounds.
-Ryan Harrow will have a better freshman season for NC State than C.J. Leslie.
-Memphis will win more games than Kentucky.
-Harrison Barnes will not take the world by storm like so many are predicting. I see too much Luol Deng in his game.
-Jackie Carmichael will be the next big man from a mid-major to really turn some heads.
-Kansas St. and Mizzou will be the top two teams in the Big 12 at the end of the season.

He said "fearless predictions," not "totally insane."

- Both Atlantic 10 and Mountain West get more NCAA bids than Pac 10, and one of them also more than SEC.

- Two teams named Wildcats will make it to the Elite 8, and neither is Kentucky (K-State and Villanova) [erm...not that fearless, I meant to say Final Four, but that could be too much]

- Despite expected to have down years, Louisville, UConn and West Virginia will all make the NCAA Tournament

- Kemba Walker will indeed be the player of the year (like UConnCeltics predicted predicted), but in Big East, not NCAA.

- This will be the first time in (enter the correct number) years when the All America 1st team will consist of five seniors (my picks: Lucas, Pullen, Delaney, Singler, JaJuan Johnson)

- Illinois will win Big 10 and be a number 1 seed.

That's not a fearless prediction. They're the preseason favorites to win the Big 10 and the preseason #2 team in the nation. You're not really going out on a limb by saying Michigan State will win the Big 10 title.

The SEC Weest can't be that bad. If Arkansas wins it, I'm pretty sure they'll make the big tourney.

Mississippi State won it last year and didn't make the NCAA tournament. It's pretty bad.

That's true. I guess I didn't really read close enough, I thought we were just posting our predictions.
In that case I'd say Illinois. But my other predictions stay.

The SEC West is awful. There are four teams in the SEC East that would probably win the West this year and the other two (Vandy and South Carolina) could probably compete for 2nd and maybe even 1st.

I'm still not sure why the SEC still insists on going to a divisional alignment in basketball. No other conference does so that I'm aware of. The ACC and Big 12 just have 1-12 standings, which is what the SEC should do.

I'm actually not sure how the ACC does their basketball schedule, because like every other non-ACC fan, I couldn't even tell you what their football divisions are. I know it's Atlantic and Coastal, but the teams in each? No chance.

But the Big XII does do their basketball schedule by the football divisions: that is, the South teams play each other twice each and play the North teams once, alternating home/away each year. Kinda devalues the regular season championship, which is my concern with the Big Ten's expansion, but that's life as a basketball fan when football rules all. (Not that I don't love football too, but you know what I mean.)

I''m fine ith non-divisional basketball if they find the fairest way to make sure a balanced rotating schedule is in place. The ACC has a format where every team plays 3 teams at home only, 3 teams on the road only, and 5 teams home and away.

Now, rivalries are kept in-tact and someone like NC State gets screwed because they play UNC and Wake Forest twice a year every year.
