This is the NCAA tourney and anything can happen. The way KU has been playing, however, is pretty darn good. If they continue that, they should win going away.

Well, I looked it up, and Kansas will not break the all-time record for easiest (on paper) path to the final four. The best they could hope for would be the 3rd-easiest path of all time, and the easiest in 7 years.

Michigan State holds the record for easiest path to the final four, set back in 2001. Before falling to Arizona in the final four, they defeated a 16 (Alabama State), 9 (Fresno State), 12 (Gonzaga), and 11 seed (Temple)

We have 2 teams tied for 2nd-easiest path:

The 1990 NCAA champion UNLV Running Rebels made it to the final four before winning it all by defeating a 16 (Ark. Little Rock), 8 (Ohio State), 12 (Ball State), and 11 seed (Loyola Marymount).

North Carolina also had an easier time in 1991 before losing to Kansas in the final four by defeating a 16 (Northeastern), 9 (Villanova), 12 (Eastern Michigan), and 10 seed (Temple).

Very true, but for me it's hard to get nervous about games versus teams like UNLV and Villanova that haven't done anything all season.

At least Villanova has a couple of wins versus high tournament seeds (Pitt and UConn; I refuse to give them Clemson because they did everything to lose that game)..... but they also went on a 5 game losing streak that would have been 7 had it not been for a 2 point win versus Seton Hall, and lost to Georgetown by 20 a couple of weeks ago.

I'm not saying Villanova can't win or that it won't be a tough game or that the players don't have to show up. It's just that I'm much more nervous about future games (Sunday, for starters) than tonight.

I'm looking ahead, but I hope the players aren't. ;)

Just remember the Bucknell Bison, so i would be nervous in any game, it is a playoff

The only reason I'd be nervous of a team that was 10 seeds lower than mine would be the fear that my team wasn't going to show up. That Kansas team had major transitional issues with their coach and even went on a losing streak towards the end of the season. They were inconsistent and not playing their best basketball.

This team has not shown up once all season, and it was a road game after 7 days off.

On top of that, 12 seeds have won a total of 1 Sweet Sixteen game ever (and is the lowest to ever do it)... 13 seeds have won 15 first round games.

Again, Villanova could win, any given Saturday night blah blah blah.... not that nervous. ;)

This team is as good as any that Roy had. They are very deep at the bigs as well as the guards. The one thing they do better than Roy's teams is that they play very tough, physical defense. Plus, this team knows how to attack zones. Roy's teams always had trouble. If you wanna know about teams before Roy's, you'll have to ask someone else. I don't remember much about those because I was just a kid during the Ted Owens and Larry Brown eras.

Yup, in baseball, NBA, and hockey its really damned hard to argue that the team standing at the end is not the best team. You dont luck your way through 2 or 3 series.

Yep. You dont necessarily care if you are the best team, because 1) halfway through the year, we can pretty much eliminate everyone but 3 or 4 teams from being "the best", and 2) they dont hand out banners to the team that shows itself to be the best by objective measurement and popular opinion.

Part of the fun is to overcome all odds and be crowned champion in spite of not being the best. To be the David that toppled the Goliath. The Giants sure as hell were NOT the best team in the NFL last year by a long-shot, but I bet their fans dont care, because they beat the best on the "any given sunday" and have the trophy.

I doubt you paid much attention while you grew up a Jayhawk fan. That '88 NC was a total miracle. OU had beaten us twice before we beat them in the NC game. We certainly can agree to disagree. Go to KUSports.com and spew your shit and you will get pummeled.
Go back to your room in the old folks home.

Alzheimers is a bitch.

I don't care what the regular season was - they won the championship.

Best team in the nation that year.

If Davidson wins this year - they deserve the title.

It has never happened since we went to the 64 team field.

4 #1 seeds have never made it to the finals since they expanded the tournament.

Would have to ask our resident old fu*ker, skip, if there have been any before. He can give the history since 1800 - he lived it.

If that does happen, and UNC ends up beating Memphis, we will have a TON of retarded monkey brackets breaking 20-way ties for 1st in bracket pools all across the country.

haha come on. skippy is fun to listen to rant and yell at kids that run onto his lawn. i think we will finally agree to disagree. i still don't understand how winning six games in a row makes you the best team. it makes you deserve it, yes, but the best...no.

If a #15 seed happened to win it, would that make them the best?

I disagree - KU won the championship - ergo they are the best team.

If they decide to change they format of the tournament then the debate can change.

For now, the team that wins the tournament is the best team in the country.

Hopefully we can agree that we want KU to win this year.

I know there's a difference between the most talented team and the best team, and I think there can also be a difference between what the scoreboard says and the actual best team.

Kansas didn't even win their conference in '88. They were the best team over the course of a few weeks, and yes, when it mattered.. but IMO the 'best team' is the one with the best resume.

You don't put "I got an A on my final" on your resume, even though that's the one that matters.

Obviously, it doesn't matter... it's a good debate. I'm glad the tournament has worked out like it has this year... I like seeing the very best in the EE and FF, and that's what we're going to get :clap:

I didn't say this team was better than the 88 team. I said it was the best team since.

I think they will advance past the 16, past the 8 and past the 4.



Are they the best since '88 if they lose on Sunday? Or is the '03 team that lost the championship by 3 points to 'Cuse the second best?

Again, I disagree. If that "A" says you are the best in the country at what you do - you highlight it on your resume.

This is not like saying I got an "A" on my math test. It's more like saying I proved my theory of .....

You won - you are the best at that pont in time.

How this guy isn't anywhere on NBA draft boards is beyond me. Guy has all the tools except he's kind of a pussy. He can't take much contact, but he's a guard so he'll be alright. I bet he can bench 185 pounds...Durant can't say that and he's averaging 20 a nite in the pros

God bless "Danny and the Miracles" but they were far from the best team that year. We used Stickboy (from Tulsa) for a point guard and Danny (as skinny as he was) was our "Big Man". We borrowed a Wichita State transfer from the football team, Clint Normore, as another guard. Does anyone know who Chris Piper is? That NC was truly a miracle.

I agree. But I think you defend him like you do Beasley. Let him get his thirty and shut the rest of them down.

I thought it was a great analogy, but actually it's flawed.

If the math final is comprehensive, even if you had a C- all semester, getting the best grade on the final goes a long way in proving you're the best student in the class. If you weren't paying attention all semester, you certainly can't fake it for one test.

And not that I need to finish the analogy, but if you're mediocre all season, winning your 'final' only means you won your final, not that the rest of the season was just a fluke. It's the other way around... the final was the fluke, because you're comparing one game to an entire season. It's exactly what you said, you're the best at that point in time. Not overall.

I don't think George Mason was one of the top 4 teams in the nation a couple of years ago, but they were certainly one of the hottest teams in the nation. It goes back to what BWillie said... peaking at the right time, a hot goalie, a cold shooting streak by an opponent, bats dying in the playoffs... stuff happens, and it's not always the best team that wins.
