2018-2019 NCAAB Thread

Recommended Posts

Season is starting here soon. Thought I get it up.

Kinda seems like a down year as far as high level talent. 

The regulars are at the top of the polls to begin the season (Kansas, Kentucky, Duke, etc).

I really just made this thread to say that Dickie V. is a cynical old man when it comes to Zona.

he bashes as much as he can. even when he has no point like above.

Big 12 is loaded this year

the top 3 are Kansas, WVU and Kansas State I think, after that every team has a chance to be a tournament team. 

Hopefully we can repeat the success we had last year.

AAC gonna be a pretty tough conference.  UCF might be a sleeper this year.  I think UH will win the AAC.  I really love how team this season even with the absence of Rob Gray.  This year's team has more depth.  The home opener in the new arena vs Oregon is going to be EPIC!

UH and Tech play in a secret scrimmage 10/27 in Ft Worth. Gonna see if I can somehow go to that.

Weren't 18 YOs allowed to go to the Gleague already? Darius Bazley was gonna go to the gleague instead of college but I'm pretty sure even he didn't do it because playing in the gleague probably sucks for an 18 YO.

Returning everybody from out sweet 16 team plus a decent freshman class. I'm expecting a good year out of Syracuse. Think we could be sneaky good and be a top 10 team all year long. However we are more likely hovering around that 25th spot.

Empty arenas, tough travel schedule, smaller role, 0 exposure... Really not worth the measly $120k elite recruits could get, and for all we know they are pretty much all getting more than that in school (when you throw in room and board, gifts like cars, and then the straight up cash). You're going to have such a better time spending 6 months on a campus surrounded by people your age where you are the man, getting to play sold out arenas, and become a household name. If NBA wanted to make the GLeague a real alternative (rather than just letting the damn kids enter the draft), they need to be offering closer to $1M, but I have no idea who would foot that bill.

Yeah... Bazely was committed to Syracuse. Then decommitted and said he was going to GLeague to be the first and start a trend that there  is another path were you can get paid right away but that didn't pan out. Kid may have ruined his life. Had so much potential but seems like one of those cases where they made an extremely idiotic decision and everyone will just forget about him.

Preseason polls released, about what I expected. Top 10 is

  1. KU
  2. UK
  3. Gonzaga
  4. Duke
  5. UVA
  6. Tennessee
  7. Nevada
  8. UNC
  9. Nova
  10. MSU

 

KU had more than twice as many 1st place votes as UK.

I feel like UVA getting preseason love is like a kiss of a death for them.

Bazley got a 1 million dollar deal to be an intern for New Balance. 

I didn't read the article but I think a shoe deal is a part of it.
