I don't know if we can dig up Gloriana or HB, but if it gets to me, I'll draft now as well... go for it and we can pin it...

I feel like I've brokered a peace agreement between Israel and Palestine.

Minus the hard work. Or travel. Or meaning.

So, uh, this is like 3 weeks early, right?

Nobody will skin me alive when I decline to draft for hours on end, right?

Regards.

Probably not a bad pick.

There are a lot of bad teams in the league and MSU has looked a little sluggish so far. And there are now 18 league games.

I had IU projected for 15-16 pre-league tourney wins, so that's worthy of a #1 overall if it pans out.

But I thought there would be more paranoia about IU, and it wouldn't have been until the middle of the 1st round before they were taken.

No. Not at all

I got your back on this. No one gets bullied to pick until they want to.

That is until 12-5. Then we'll all get in line to beat the crap out of you.

My philosophy is to take a team from a conf w/ more than 16 games.

Memphis looks good, but I still think the odds of IU going 14-4 are better than Memphis going 14-2 (setting aside tournament, of course). After last year, I wasn't going to take a mid-major. I considered UCLA, but the Pac-10 looks much deeper than the Big Ten this year. So there we are. Call me Homer Simpson. Plus, it's probably the kiss of death for the team.

I dunno JM

Memphis won all their league games last year, and they're better this year. And the pick for second best team in the conferencee? Coached by Mike Davis.

Still, I should thank you because I had IU coming in right about 8th, where I pick. Maybe that's just my lack of confidence talking there.

Ditto

If it makes it to me, I'll make my pick as soon as I notice I'm up, but I don't think there's any obligation for folks to pick until the 5th.
