I think that Tennessee has the most talent. I say it's a three team race Tennessee, Mississippi State, and South Carolina.

RD has a big hate on. Evil or Very Mad

I'm going with a 3-way race--Miss. State, SC, and Tennessee. I have a sneaking feeling that Georgia might not be far behind. Joni Taylor is quietly doing a nice rebuilding job down there.

As much as id like to join him when it comes to harlick , id rather be in this position to possibly be great with her than with a new coach starting the rebuilding process all over again . She pisses me off most of the time *Warlick* but i wish her nothing but success . Will be monumental when she wins her 1st title at UT .

I agree , coach taylor has built a solid program down in georgia . They just need that 1 marquee player to restore themselves as an elite program again .

I'm going with South Carolina, they should have the best player in conference and what I consider the best back court in the nation.

If you go by and believe in high school All Americans, Tennessee has by far the best talent. Much of it, however, will be fresh.

Coaching may be the key.

The Pac 12 has big magic, big mojo, big RPI coaches -- and now one that lovin' spoonful is in Arkansas. Do you believe in magic in a young girl's heart? Believe in magic of a young girl's soul? Believe in the magic that can set you free?

I think that Missouri could be in the mix. They have been on a pretty steady upward trajectory since Robin Pingeton became the head coach. Mississippi State and South Carolina would have to be considered the safest bets.

I think Caliya Robinson is on her way to becoming that player. Watch her.

An argument could be made for Duke with Brown and Greenwell, other then the gamecocks most teams will have some question marks regrading there back courts.

Also Harris is the 1st freshman point guard to start on a national championship team since Toliver and Maryland

Be interesting to see if Neighbors can build up Arkansas. He has the "coached in the Final Four" feather in his cap now. But he did go to the Final Four with a team that he didn't recruit, so the feat was not as great as it could be.

She'll just be a sophomore this year, so let's see if she grows up. Laughing

Tennessee has the most talent, by a long shot. Mississippi State has the most returning fire power, experience and the best coach. South Carolina has the best player and the best "swag." This will be a really fun race.

I give the edge to the Fighting Schaeffers.

Had Davis and Gray returned to SC. Then I think they would be the favorite. It will be interesting to see who can step up for SC. I think it will be a good race in the SEC this year. I may go down to the last week.

Tennessee big 3, Diamond DeShields, Mercedes Russell, and Jaime Nared will have a lot of help. Te'a Cooper at the point got threw her freshman year. the 4 freshman plus one, Evina Westbrook, Anastasia Hayes, Rennia Davis, Kasiyahna Kushkituah, and Cheridene Green will help a lot, with Alexa Middleton and Meme Jackson both should improve but not sure how much playing time they will get. Kortney Dunbar and Kamera Harris may not play much at all. This is Tennessee best team since 2008. I'll take them in the SEC this year by a lot.

You stated that Miss St has the best coach? Dawn and her team beat them 3 times and her team got the Ship. Seems that she may be a better coach than some people think.

Ha, I hope the 44 year old Caldwell (Fargas) sees that.

She's still employed, so he could do worse. I was wondering what time period they will give him and what results they are expecting at Arkansas.

Why do people say this about Neighbors yet people want to give so much credit to Carolyn Peck?

Kathy Olivier is also still employed. Point being that he's leaving for twice the money. Can't blame him. Like Fargas, he has minimal time as a head coach and has proven to be a poor recruiter. He also is coming in with high expectations. Can he meet them? In her three years at UCLA, Caldwell finished fourth and twice two times in the Pac. She also got to the final game twice. Neighbors best finish was a tie for second this year and he never won the tournament. He never even got to the title game. In fact, this year UW was beaten in the first game by Oregon in Seattle. All this while having the top scorer and rebounder. He has a Final Four in his resume but so does Lindsay Gottlieb.

Will it pay off? Did it at LSU? It seems like a gamble, but sometimes you have to gamble to win.

When were they saying it about Peck? Her post-Purdue coaching seems to have taken some of the luster off her NCAA title.

Yes!! Someone else sees it also! People in certain circles and some even on here talk about how good she was, won a National title, WNBA coach, etc when the reality is she basically was a substitution supervisor at Purdue. She really is not a very good coach.

Anyway, I completely agree about Neighbors as well. He has shown to be a pretty good coach (game decisions, preparation, etc) but can he recruit?

In lieu of the developments oer the past few weeks my thoughts are:

1. Mississippi State. - Most likely of the bunch to get to the Final Four. Vic has a team full of senior guards and Mountain McCowan. Plus the team is deep and experienced (remember him swapping starting lineups at the start of the NCAAT). Whereas last years run was built on the leadership of 3 star recruits, now there are Gatoraders on the team. Indomitiable IttyBit knows what it takes to get to the Title Game.

2. South Carolina. - Probably an Elite 8 team but Wilson in her awesomeness could get this team to Final Four. Harris and Cuevas are in the backcourt together. But Gray and Davis were spectacular in March and their versitility and experience need to be replaced.

3. Missouri - Cunningham gets better and better and this team returns the Porter Sisters and gets back toughie Jordan Frericks who missed last season. Amber Smith, a rising Sophomore was invited to the U19 trials after a breakout season. Sweet 16.

4. Tennessee - T'heChosen and DramaDiva were expected to be the the Final Four Force of of the LadyVols and but they're no longer available. While many believe the Vols could land even better through the Addition by Subtraction Principle, its unlikely that Tennesee will make a long run having to rely on froshies albeit highly rated froshies. Sweet 16 would be an optimistic highwater mark.

5. Texas A&M - Solid players at every position including tried and true Hillsman in the post, Hydromatic Howard corraling caroms, Dynaimic Danni Williams providing explosive offense. Curtyce Knox won't be back and she lead the nation in assists. Relying on a frosh even a blue collar frosh to duplicate that leadership and poise is unlikely.
