    come on... what is up with these guys winning their second straight NIT title? You'd think that they'd start puttin up some numbers in the NCAA, where it really counts, eh? It's all good... gotta pull for the SEC no matter what, right?

    Which would you rather have? One and done in the NCAA's back to back...or winning the NIT back to back years?

    For a team that returned all of their starters from last years "Championship" team all they get is a return trip?

    Odum has stated on more than one occasion that it isn't his intention to recruit the "blue chip" players in basketball...but rather, go after those that "fall through the cracks."

    Besides his tenure with Duncan...he hasn't proved a lot to me when it comes to putting a quality team (as in competing for the NCAA's) on the floor.
