Does anybody here think KU could hang with the ISU team with Fizer and Tinsley on it? That was a two seed too. I don't see KU on that level. I was very impressed with KU last year, this year, meh, good but they just don't seem physically tough. I also think the Big12 is down this year, as is college basketball.
The Fizer/Tinsley team should have been a #1 seed and not faced MSU until the Final Four. That said, nobody in the conference this year could match up with them, although watching Fizer and B. Griffin go at it would be amazing.
The conference is a little down as far as depth goes, but the top 2-3 still look pretty formidible. KU is sort of a question mark, as is the case every year, they have the talent, but seem to lack depth and experience off the bench, usually a strong suit for them, they have the athletes and a great coach, so anything is possible.
'09 OU vs '00 ISU would be a pretty good game, IMO. They're kind of similar teams in a lot of ways. Both had a dominating post player, great guard play, and guys that will hit big shots although I think ISU was a fair amount better defensively.
As has been said '00 ISU should have been a 1 seed (and would have been if they were named Kansas) and I'm pretty confident they could have handled this KU team. It doesn't really strike me as a particularly strong year throughout college BB.
