Very cool post, thank you ZN.

Lots of support this year.

I didn't know that North Carolina was so good - a very trendy pick for the FF and championship.

A little cognitive dissonance with Fran. He does not pick us to go to the Final Four, but does pick Few as coach of the year. He can't be right on both, at least I wouldn't think so.

So much pressure on Turgeon this year @ Maryland.

I'm not quite sold on them, but they return all but one player from last year and were a solid team with plenty of size and depth. Paige potentially could be a great player.

Medcalf did a nice write-up on Wiltjer in March ( http://guboards.spokesmanreview.com/showthread.php?53017-Medcalf-Piece-on-Wiltjer); good to see he's still showing some Zags love 8 months later.

I guess the academic scandal at UNC is already swept under the rug and no repercussions re: post season play are on the horizon. . .imagine that.
