This is the Year of the Guards in Freedom.  I picked Guards as the top returning player for 9 of the 12 teams.  This season Freedom is going to be very tough!  It will be hard to beat having the National Champion and runnerup, as we did last season, but the conference is deeper and tougher this season and there are several teams capable of making a title run again this season.

Wow, that is a tough group. I hope Drew can measure up to your lofty prediction.  Thanks for the predictions. I always look forward to them

6/3/2011 9:28 AM
as do i.  think i can nab the 2 slot in the west, even playing a guy or 2 out of position
6/9/2011 11:22 AM
2nd- that'd be great- I'd be pleased with 8-8 and a trip to the NT.
6/12/2011 2:48 PM
The conference had a steller non-con season!  6298 RPI for the conference, #1 in Naismith D3, and we currently have 9 teams in the NT chase, 1 in the PIT, and the last two are not far out of a PIT spot.  I don't know if any conference, in any World has ever put all 12 teams in the post season, but as unlikely as it is to happen, there is a posibility this season in Freedom.  My guess is that we will end up with 9-10 post season teams with 7-8 being in the NT.
