College Hoops 2003/2004

(1/4) > >>

Brian:
I'm not sure how many college hoops fans we have here, but I thought I'd start a place to discuss the season, your team, and eventually March Madness.  In Nebraska, we've never been much known for our hoops, which is probably why I have been a North Carolina fan since I was in junior high.  It has been rough the last couple of years, but hopefully they are turning it around a little this year.  So far so good (5-0).  I'm not expecting a National Title, but it would be nice to just be back in the Tourney :).  Good luck to all of your teams out there!

JediMAC:
UCLA in da' house!   8)  Absolutely zero expectations for them this year - by me or the critics.  They weren't even ranked in the top 65 in some pre-season poll I saw a few weeks ago.  They started off pretty well in their first couple games against some crappy opponents, and also came really close to beating #9 Kentucky in the Wooden Classic tournament this past weekend (52-50), so that's a pretty good sign that they're going to be better than advertised.

I think we got some transfer player from your team there Brian - North Carolina.  I forget his name, but he transferred out in 2001 I think, and has been kicking some booty for us so far.  Dropped five 3's the other night I believe.  With UCLA's hoops history, expectations are usually very high, which is why Steve Lavin got canned despite going to like six Sweet 16's during his tenure.  Championship or bust in Westwood.  Just probably not this year though...

When UCLA's not on the floor, I'll root for the other Pac-10 teams (except hated USC).  So it was nice to see Stanford just knock #1 Kansas off in that same Wooden tournament there.  Big UCSB (Santa Barbara) fan too, but they're kinda small school so they usually don't make too much noise in the bigger picture.  Sure had some incredible teams back in the late 80's/early 90's though, when we were knocking off #1 UNLV on a regular basis!   8)

Yeah, I think that guy's name is Brian Morrison.  Not too bad a player, I hope he does well even though he left Tarheel land.  He can shoot the rock pretty well...and if I remember right from last year, he has some ups too for a shorter player.  Good luck to him, as well as the Bruins :).

SPIDERLEGS:
OK, so my FAVORITE time of year is almost upon us. I propose we set up a STAR WARS bracket on ESPN.com and see who is this board's god of college hoops. I would want to include everyone on Rebelscum and JediDefender because of the overlap. Does this sound interesting to anyone?

Consider this the gauntlet cast to the hardwood...

If interested, I'll set us up an account and post the usergroup name and password here in this thread.

JediMAC:
Hmm...  Sounds interesting.  I used to win my office pool every year for quite a while, but I've lost some interest in college hoops over the past couple years (probably due to UCLA sucking ass during that time), so I'm not as attuned to the goings on as I once was.  I think another reason is the lack of "stars" in college ball anymore, since they all jump to the pros so quickly nowadays...

But I might hop in if you get things set up Spider.  This just a free gig, or are you thinking of upping the stakes a bit?  Don't matter much to me really...

I wonder if St. Joe's is still going to get a #1 seed after getting B-slapped by 20 yesterday?

Whaddaya say JD'ers?  Should we show those 'Scummers what we're made of?   8)
