@KUSTEVE Yep, nothing is decided by the media.
No team will go unbeaten. ESPN always wants to convince everyone that UK can, but in the end everyone loses at some point.
Again, I am still not convinced that Ku can’t give them a good fight.

UK has the talent to go undefeated simply because they will be the better team most every night they take the floor. But the thing with college basketball is that the best team still loses about 30% of the time because college players just aren’t at a level where they are that consistent every single night to romp through the competition, and the talent is so much more spread out than in the 60’s and 70’s.
The last undefeated team was almost 40 years ago. That Indiana team only played 32 games. Champions now play 40 games. They only had 5 rounds in the NCAA’s. No conference tournament. That’s many fewer risky games to deal with.
Think about how hard it is to beat the same opponent twice in a year. Or even three times. The last few dominant teams to win the title all lost conference games - KU lost at K-State, at Texas and at Oklahoma St. - all road conference games. UNC in 2009 lost to Boston College (pre-ACC days), at Wake, at Maryland and in the conference tournament to Florida St. That’s three conference losses. UK in 2012 lost to Indiana (on a last second shot) and in the conference tournament to Vanderbilt.
That’s probably as close as anybody is getting to going undefeated. Too many teams with guys that can get hot for one night and knock you off. Too many games. Too much familiarity in conference. It’s just too difficult a road.
Also, forgot to add that the addition of the three point shot means a hot night from an otherwise inferior team can be your ultimate doom. That’s something Indiana (or the other undefeateds) didn’t have to deal with.

The twins went 1-8 from 3; I hope they shoot a lot against KU and with the same success…or lack thereof…
