Not again. If you guys are going to argue again, why use the previous LONG posts? 3-4 posts would fill my page.

A lot of people think Gregg Marshall is a great coach. He has a nice resume, but he’s never won a championship. On the flip side, everyone slobbers over coach K. In his case, I’ve never seen him win a title without incredible talent and/or experience. Both are fine coaches, but coach K couldn’t win a title with Gregg’s players.

I was duly impressed with Marshall last season given his relative lack of talent. He really had that bunch playing good team ball by year's end.

And regarding coaching acumen, I have come to appreciate it more at the end of close, meaningful games..... remembering a certain 2008 game where coaching alone should have secured a natl championship given the circumstances.

Just put 20 on them at Caesars on my first Vegas trip. 12/1 odds, seems very high.

The odds update often I believe

First trip? Haha, I'm not into gambling, but it is a must visit....as is New Orleans

I've met folks even older who have been to neither

14-1 today and we are fifth overall. If by high, you mean it should be lower than 14? There are so many variables that come into play in winning it all that I surprised it’s it not in the 20s. I would play the field most years in college basketball

No one wants a NC more than me. I’m just saying how hard they are to win. Luck almost always involved and no key injuries, etc.

Every team wants to win the national championship. That should be the goal of every team.

Luck definitely plays a part in it. Got to have some luck.

Louisville #4? Shouldn't they be serving out an NCAA death penalty or at least a long-term ban playing college BB?

Left out just from memory ESPN, Andy Katz, Sporting News, USA Today. I don’t get Louisville even if they shouldn’t be on probation. I wish we were playing those SOBs this year.

I don't get all the love for Louisville at all.
