    DeAndre Hunter is a sure-fire lottery pick, but still crazy to think about what they could return.

    All I know is that I do not want to see them in the ACC challenge next season.. Let ttun get waxed by them. I would not mind taking a shot at Dooookkkk next year or even the boys from Chapel Hill.

    we've played duke three times and uva, unc, and fsu twice. any of those opponents would surprise me. uva will undoubtedly face either msu or ttun. probably msu while duke plays ttun. cuse probably makes the most sense for us yet again. we're due a road game and cuse is due a home game. both programs had comparable seasons, though i'm not seeing cuse in any preseason polls. usually similar teams are paired. louisville makes some sense for osu; however, a home game for them means they'd already be at a 4-2 location advantage.

    if hazarding a guess, i'm going with cuse first, l'ville second, and unc third as our likely opponents. based on espn's current rankings, though, maryland and osu splitting the l'ville and unc games makes the most sense.

    edit: l'ville is making less sense. we're definitely due a road game and we already played them at their place five years ago. i'm going with either cuse at cuse or unc at unc.

    I would rather go to UNC. Not a fan of watching this team play that zone again in their house unless our shooters are lights out.

    Or unless EJ is ready to make hay from the high post.

    Any sensible fan would. There's some impressive talent walking up and down Franklin Street.

    I think @ Cuse makes the most sense. Second most likely I would pick @ NC St. I know the Challenge organizers love rematches from the tourney and prior season. I can see why they would not pair UM and UNC a third year in a row, but OSU was the 8th place team in the B1G, they try to match up similar strength programs relatively speaking and there is plenty of depth in the ACC to give OSU one of the lesser teams like Cuse or NC St. Certainly UM, MSU and MD seem primed to be matched with the top 3 ACC teams in some order.

    Interesting choice of pic to demonstrate this "impressive talent." :thinking:

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    And the juggalos are actually happy to be losing the coach who's taken them to how many straight tournaments because they think he actually held them back from their rightful place alongside Duke, Kansas and Kentucky. No fanbase in the country is more delusional about their place in the pecking order than the juggalos, and yes, that includes tsun.

    The other side of this coin of hilarity is that UCLA basketball fan is a very apt comparison to tsun foosball fan, and he is certainly not overjoyed that they settled for Mick Fucking Cronin. There will be no honeymoon period and no settling for leaving the tournament on the first weekend.

    Wow. That would be big for Cincinnati, but he is probably just using them for a raise.

    Idk, Martin has only made one NCAA Tournament at South Carolina. Cincinnati is probably a better job even if it's in a less prestigious conference.

    I was gonna say, I'd be a little concerned Martin's Final 4 run was a fluke given what he's done in the rest of his seasons at SC.
