If they just look at our talent and don't account for our (lack of) coaching, yes.

We can be unranked to start the season and still be a sweet sixteen team.

We were over ranked this year and they will most likely remember that.

No disrespect to the players at all but I don't think they will be ranked. I think they will receive votes if they do that on the initial ranking.

With the talent level and amount of experience half of the team will have, I'm expecting an Elite Eight showing. Nothing less.

When is the last time a team with a crappy coach made the elite eight?

Hardly ever. Which is why I'm not hopeful about my expectation being met.

so was Duke lacking the talent or coaching portion this year?

Well, GE, Frank Martin is one win away so I guess we'll see if he makes it.

And everyone used to give his opponent Scott Drew all sorts of **** for being a bad coach even though he was making the elite eight every other year. Some still do.

Wake me up when Drew beats a single-digit seed in the tournament.

John Brady sucks and he made a final 4 at LSU. Get enough talent and anyone can win.

About 24th to start the season. After the season, we'll have to prove it. We *can* be a Sweet 16 team. The coaching staff will have to be better. An AC may have to step up more.

Coach K was out of half the season. Same for Giles, Bolden. Tatum was injured. As was Jefferson. Allen lost his mind for awhile.

One of their problems was that they could not play Allen and Kennard together, Neither can play defense.

So this would be a "Dumpster Fire" season for Duke...with more injuries than BK had to deal with in year 1. Yet, they were ACC Champs.

This is the lamest TexAgs smack of all. Nobody outside of TexAgs can even remember who Baylor played en route to their E8s.

Maybe 24-25 since Williams is back along with some veterans. Pollsters generally don't like teams/coaches that badly under performed the year before.

Um ya, isn't that the point? That they haven't played anyone worth a damn?

You're almost always in control of your own destiny in basketball. There's no supernatural force that decides which teams will inevitably be upset.

Stop being obtuse. Think rationally. Are you telling me that there's NOTHING Duke could have done to beat South Carolina? Or even Mercer? That once you get in the tournament, there's absolutely nothing you can do to control how you play?

That's not what I said at all.

I said it's foolish to expect an Elite Eight appearance. You seem to think that the top 8 teams make the Elite Eight. I think upsets happen all the time, that's why most of our brackets are busted - that's why they call it March Madness.
