I was disappointed Seth's season outlook at halftime on Saturday had no mention of any UConn players in his top tier nor was UConn mentioned in his Final Four talk.

Good. Who the hell is Seth Davis anyway? Let 'em ramble on about KY, Duke, UNC, etc. It doesn't matter; the games have to be played.

It's the same stuff he shelled out last year... he just changed the year.

It is my preference that Seth Davis never mention UConn....

I prefer that other people mention UConn to him.

UConn gets plenty of love from lots of legit sources. We're not under the radar, and therefore fighting for scraps of the spotlight. There will always be knuckleheads who have strong biases, but nobody ever said you need to be smart to be a sportswriter.

I am not sure we have played anyone big enough or showed anyone anything but flashes of were we need to be to be included in every FF conversation the talking heads have. They did not talk about us last year and that worked out ok as well.

DOOMED!

I just want to add that back in 2004 i remember Seth Davis was anti Uconn the whole year. He always found something wrong with them and never believed they would win the NC even though Uconn had the most talent. It wasnt until halftime of the Georgia Tech game when he finally jumped on board and finally called Uconn the best team in the country, but that was when it was pretty clear who was going to win.

Im not a big Seth Favis fan to begin with but im surprised he has a job as an analyst when he didnt even play the game. I know he is smart and has covered college basketball for years, but it just seems odd to me because most of those jobs are held by former players or coaches.

I'm sensing the analysts out there are doing something similar to what we are doing before really assessing this Uconn team - waiting for it to gel a bit. And also waiting for it to play some barometer competition. I wouldn't read into Seth Davis too much.

He was there when UConn choked away that UCF game. Probably has influnced his thinking.

Nobody does more with the "perceived slight" than JC. They are just loading his bullets for him.

..................... after we play some good competition. No one can honestly say/know how good we are until we are tested. Too bad we have to wait another month or so.
