The best I can make of this nut is that he takes the loses of the year before which is the away games and makes some bullsh*t factor or percentage why you'll lose. Then the big kicker is how both UNC and UK both are ranked in his poll which is supposed to be non-biased; above us. Based on what? Anybody remember how sickly weak Caroliner is on the inside? Neither one of those fellas can hold up against Kenny Hall much less Brian Williams! One big recruit and suddenly their playing for the national Championship. Kentuck? Anybody see their games played this summer in Canada? Nothing even close to last years recruiting class. I can't wait for my second favorite team ETSU to travel up their this Friday. I wouldn't be suprised!! Almost everybody back from last years ASUN champs. Oh, by the way, the best way to pick a parlay card if we even do it anymore, is too draw names out of a hat. That is a proven statistic! It won more times than not around here.
LOL. Something like 7 out of the last 10 Pomeroy picks going into the tourney have won it all.
Also, Kentucky has an exponentially more talented roster than UT. You all have no guards even comparable to Knight, your wings are inferior and if Kanter is eligible, he is 10x the player of anyone you have in the post. I'm also not convinced that Jones isn't a much better player than Harris.
