seemed like even people close to him didnt really know either.


No, only thing people knew is that staying close to home was important. Don't think ucla and ohio st. were really options. FSU was his leader for the last year and since he never talked about it the recruiting people just kept changing their picks every time he took a visit. Not sure what kids see in fsu basketball wise, but charlton young prettt much always gets who he wants. Hamilton is #$!&@.

You're playing in the ACC, so every game is on TV and at least every other game is against a good opponent. The program is moderately decent, so you have a chance to make the tournament most years. You're playing at a football school, so there's not a huge amount of fan pressure to win. The weather is pretty nice and the coeds at FSU are really hot.

What other school in the country has that combination?

Hits all of that except the moderately decent program part. And maybe the coeds, I don't have any clue about South Carolina women except there are fewer of them than in Florida.

They hit the hell out of the coed similarity button.

Edit: I actually have never been to Florida but I feel confident saying that.

UNC losing Bradley is major loss. Going to look like a prototypical Duke team next year with a tom of guards, no wings, and no bigs. And those guards can't shoot.

At least we won it all this year. That was great
On a scale of 1 to Chris Brown, how pissed is he?

PK80 Thanksgiving blockbuster brackets are out

Semifinals probably:
Duke-Butler (maybe Texas)
Florida-Gonzaga

UNC-Oklahoma
Michigan State-Oregon

The two brackets are completely separate, not allowed to play teams in your own conference so there will be two champions/trophies.

Yeah, lot of articles are speculating about the same names, Chris Mack, Chris Holtmann, Gregg Marshall, Mick Cronon, Billy Donovan...and Buzz WIlliams. Worried Balls?

Buzz has turned his sights to UCONN transfer Juwan Durham. Has some injury stuff but was a top 50 guy in '16.
