    I thought 91 UNLV and Duke 99 were better. But those are the 3 greatest non-winners of my lifetime I think (also UNC 84...so modern era). But Duke and UNLV did win titles with those players. Just not in those specific seasons. I would also say all 3 are better than 2015 UK which was undefeated going into the Final 4. In my lifetime Michigan probably had the greatest 2 or 3 year run without winning the title

    Michigan did win it in 89 but not with those players. So they played in three title games in five years with a completely new group of players. No one in the modern era has done anything like that.

    I liked the Georgetown teams of the mid-80s.

    LOVED watching them.

    The 83 FF had 2 legitimately great teams. Like all-time talent. Just neither of them won.

    yeah, it's become insufferable with all the self appointed experts.

    I like Kedsy's information. To me the advanced stats help me order and organize what I saw. And sometimes it corrects things I felt but which weren't actually true. So I like that stuff. Otherwise, the only post-game analysis I want to hear is Coach K in the post-game. I'm uninterested in how people think minutes should have been dispersed and how Duke should have aligned the defense. They don't know. I don't know, and I grew up in a household which actually game planned this stuff. I scouted other high school basketball teams but I can't tell you what Duke should be doing. That ain't my job. I also think people have the tendency to discount that the other team has recruited players as well. K said something after the Florida State game that was so good that I wish people thought about more. He said Duke noticed that the starters were missing for Florida State and went for the knockout punch. But that Florida state did not participate in their own demise. They executed. It's absolutely correct. The other team is participating as well and on the basketball side people have a tendency to forget that.

    Most Duke fans disliked the Fab Five, which I don't quite understand, as they never beat Duke...

    Maybe this is why?
    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    I don't mind the info at all. As OPK suggested, it's the constant talking down to others that gets tedious.

You are one of the reasons I've read this site before I started posting. So I want you to post over here more. Please. If you have ever heard the in-depth explanation Jalen Rose gives for that it's pretty fantastic. It's also pretty understandable for a teenage boy whose father was an NBA player but who had no relationship with his son. While Grant had Calvin. No wonder Jalen didn't like him, but it was misplaced.

    No one operates with more swagger and self-confidence than a mediocre white guy. And I say that with all of the cocksure attitude of a mediocre white guy.

    Ancient history at this point for everyone but Jalen Rose. Turd.

    He was my favorite! He was just wrong about this. He has since said he was wrong and espoused love for Grant. And who doesn't love Grant? Future President Grant Hill.

    President's Day...good day to pause and reflect on Vermont's two powerhouse Presidents.

    I knew about Ethan Allen, but I didn't know President Franklin grew up there as well.

    Chester and Calvin sound like the name of twins who were granted atomic wedgies on a daily basis by the assistant linebacker football coach in middle school while the team stood around and thought, “this is what it means to be a man”.

    few know that Franklin invented maple syrup among his other achievements. Ethan Allen, of course, invented furniture.

    But I’m still pretty fly for my demographic.
