Wow. Love to see it, but in a league with UConn, Louiisville, ND, Pitt...I doubt it. Any one of those four teams could be Final Four material. We could, too, if we get anything out of the 5 spot.

They obviously realize our coaching talent has finally caught up to our playing talent.  And I mean that seriously and about coaches 1-4 not just one.  We have a real, professional staff.  I doubt Dale Layer is working on his resume every night.  Buzz scares me a little bit with his # of days at MU and watching other people's pressers but he can't be any worse of a game coach than TC.  It sounds like he'll work as hard (which was TC's extraordinary gift) and with Benford & Layer, he has two vets on his side.

Great to see these expectations...who wants to bet against Jerel McNeal?

Does sound... at least a little odd that they'd pick UL to finish 6th in the Big East but get a #1 seed in the NCAA tourney  ?-(

i haven't seen the paper, but i'm guessing that one person did the big east projections, and another did the ncaa tournament projections.  two people, two opinions.

We'll just have to go out there and [try to] prove it.  On a side note, I randomly saw James on the cover of Lindy's College Basketball 2008-2009 Preview.  MU is profiled on page 77....a sign of good things to come?

Smart money says ZFB has a better chance of finishing on top of EA than the Warriors do of finishing on top of the Big East. ;D
