    That's where everyone wants to be, but no one has a formula for it. So far, the strategy is to recruit the best players you can get and hope it all works out. Since the one-and-done era began, we've seen two types of champion: the one-and-done team and the experienced senior team (and some hybrids). But so far, all champs in this era are basketball power programs with McDonald's All-Americans on the roster.
    They have a McD AA jointing next season along with a couple of four stars. Ranked 12 right now. By the time its done, they could easily crack the top 10. Was bound to happen as they're quickly emerging as a modern day blue blood.

    Transfers has been our saving grace. Without transfers, we’d be sunk.

    Good bye, RPI. You will not be missed!

    Edit: there are almost no details on the new metric (NET). I hope it's harder to game this ranking than the RPI.

    I love this week in basketball. Great games left and right in tournaments.

    I hate seeing someone as cool as Donnie Daniels coaching for a dirtbag like Mark Few.
