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
