Bilas Index, Volume 1

Recommended Posts

Jay Bilas released his first Bilas Index of the season that allegedly looks at the best 68 teams in college basketball. Guess who he left out? That's right...the Horns. Just wanted to point out a couple issues with this moronic endeavor:

(1) We took Bilas' No. 1 and 9 teams to OT;

(2) Butler, a team we beat, is No. 59;

(3) We're No. 25 on kenpom.com and the first team in kenpom's ranking not to make Bilas' index. The next team not to make Bilas' index is Ole Miss, which No. 65 on kenpom. So, Nos. 1-24 and 26-64 on kenpom.com made the Bilas Index, with Texas being the lone team left out.

Previously, I never thought too much of Bilas. This just reinforces it.

Bilas is a blowhard.  He is a lawyer I believe and thinks very highly of himself.  I get tired of his repeated tweets about paying athletes.  He seems to have turned out ok with his academic scholarship to Duke.  However he actually planned on getting a degree vs thinking he was an NBA superstar like every high school senior getting a basketball scholarship.

Jay Bilas calling a Duke game is worse than listening to the lunatic Bill Walton call a game. Bilas made it seem like Texas was the worst bunch of degenerates he had ever seen and gave Duke a pass every chance he got. That occurred while Texas was up 10+ points until late in the 2nd half. What a blowhard.

Bill is certainly enjoying his retirement, isn't he? lol. I think he lights up before every game he calls. No other reason explains how strange it gets. lol

Did you hear the numerous disclaimers the play-by-play guy threw down while he and Walton were calling our last game? lol

    • Most had Jones at the top. Anderson and Eric Monroe were after him in various orders. 
    • Two good friends probably hoping they can play together, but I haven’t heard of any interest on Texas’ end. Holton played corner. Anderson is a safety all the way.
    • I'll be further east, near the Arkansas border. But I hear we have a good shot for rain Saturday evening. Only supposed to be a half inch though. Maybe more where your pond is at. Where I'll be, they calling for all-day rain with lows in the low 30s which should be fun.
    • SHA In your line of work I'm sure you're in good with the rain gods. Please ask them for rain in Kaufman County. My duck ponds are dry.
    • I don't know that a door closed. I know there are plenty of schools seeking his services. We're losing DeShon Elliott and Anderson might make a nice home there if PJ Locke isn't up to the task. Ole Miss lists Anderson as 6'1, 221 lbs. Thats almost the same as DE with similar skills. He will be a junior and with a great showing, could be a one and done. I don't think it would have much effect on the young guns coming in. There's two safeties in that group – BJ Foster and Caden Sterns. It would be great to be able to redshirt them. Having Anderson around would certainly help make that happen. All that said, I have no idea if this is the out of nowhere guy. Would be cool if it is.
