Yes, we would have been happy with 4 or 6 in the AAC.

I'm sure Duke and UK will be in an early tourney where they can get beat

That’s right. Thanks, I forgot about early season tournaments. That’s encouraging.

Are you accusing Duke or Kentucky to not play good OOCs?

Because they typically do.

I believe you to be right. I wouldn't be surprised if those polls have us around 15th or lower.

As awesome as it is to see the Tigers ranked so highly, I'd almost prefer a lower ranking at this point. I'd just hate to see the bar set so high that the guys feel the pressure to live up to it and struggle. It's going to be a long season with lots of ups and some downs, so I'd rather fly below the radar until these guys get some games under their belts. I'm more concerned with the rankings next March than now.

Yep... they always play a tough OCS.

Cool! I hope the Freshmen will gel together and work as a team. There's a lot of talent and ego on that team. The only way they can win the NC is leave their egos at the door and play selflessly.

The only ranking that matters in the NCAA tournament is your seed which determines your matchups (as manipulated by Committee to favor money conferences). But if we are good enough they can’t screw us too bad without being ridiculed.

I agree with that partly, but I think rankings matter with recruits too.

To recap thus far -

Andy Katz of NCAA.com March Madness 365 - has Memphis #4
Gary Parrish CBS BBall guru - has Memphis #6
Seth Davis of The Athletic - also has Memphis #6

You forgot Jon Rothstein. He has Memphis at 15.


edit: or maybe you were just ignoring him like the rest of the world :)

NBC's Rob Dauster was on J&J and said on the radio a couple days ago he would probably drop Memphis to the low end of the Top 10 if we lost Rayjon.....oh well

Any list with Kansas at #5 (as things stand right now), I can't take seriously.

Well we know it's not going to be with Tucker since he's made a decision to stay in the draft.
