2008 Final Four in San Antonio

Recommended Posts

Scott M

Any predictions for next year's final four? UCLA should be pretty tough again with or without Afflalo, Kansas or North Carolina if they can keep some of their underclassman studs, USC if Mayo is the real deal, Georgetown will be tough in the Big East, Memphis will do the Conference USA bit again.

I dunno. Could be a similar looking Elite 8 or Final 4. Any sleepers I'm missing? George Mason you say grin.gif ? Washington State? This year teams will see them coming so probably not. Tennessee is pretty deep, with or without Lofton.

I'd like to root for a Big Ten team, but there really aren't any teams to get too excited about for contending for a national title. That is assuming Oden and Conley go pro. Heck, I can't even pick the winner for next year's Big Ten champs. There really isn't a clear cut favorite. Michigan State usually is good year in and out and recruits well. Neitzel is probably the biggest name that is back. If Indiana can put something around D.J. White and learn Sampson's defense, they could be good.

Assuming Conley Jr. stays with Ohio State, I would put them as a Final 4 favorite. I may sound like a heretic here, but I think as of right now, he is more valuable than Oden.

Otherwise, I agree that UCLA is a solid favorite.

i'm assuming everyone is betting on durant leaving for the NBA. if for some reason he stays, how bout texas? i also like USC and Kansas and UNC are always gonna be there. how bout Gtown. i'm wondering which new coach is gonna have the biggest impact in the big ten. i like belien(sp) at michigan. and ya got tubby and what's his name at Iowa.

i'll probably end up picking kansas again only to have them burn me as always cool.gif

Gopher fan stuck in Ia, so I cheer for the Big ten and not Ia, so that means OSU. Next year they are loaded. The only lose ODen, Harris and Lewis. Conley will stay. They have 7'1" stud coming (and can shoot the three ((from Europe)) and the leading scorer in Ohio basketball history, a 6'7" guard by the name of Diebler. If Conley stays, they have deadly backcourt. Throw in Butler, leighty, Cook, Hunter and they are loaded, maybe not better than this years team, but more well rounded. Not better than this years team, but good enough to beat anybody next year as I can't think of a team that could have beaten FL in the last decade and yes, that includes 05' NC. Maybe 98 KEnt, and for sure 96 Kent.

Good point about Ohio State-they played that well with Oden on the bench, they really can open the floor up with him gone. But I would mirror what a lot of people have said and that is that it would depend a lot on getting Conley back. If I'm him I'm going to the big show. He'd be the first PG taken.

there are some good pg's this year and i gotta think some will leave. acie law, connely, the kid from texas, the kid from ucla, the fast guy from unc. i need to do a little better on the names, but i think alot of these underclassmen will leave and they are all good. and kansas has a good one too. and brooks from oregon. if any of those teams had been in the finals, they would have all recieved the hype that connely jr got.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
