ESPN Roundtable does not trust the Cards

9

Ok, I know that we're all questioning whether we're really a Top-10 team at this point too. But are we really more worthy of being singled out for this distinction (least-trusted Top-15 team) than, say, Pitt? Missouri? Baylor? Wisconsin? How many NBA-caliber players do the Badgers have on their roster? (I've seen Peyton listed ahead of Jordan Taylor in draft rankings). I suppose I just get tired of hearing that we have a home-heavy non-conference schedule (true of most of the Top 15, and we're not the worst offenders), that we don't have enough bona fide NBA players (remains to be seen, and we have a number of borderline guys), or that we don't have enough quality wins (sorry, but @ Butler, Vandy, LBSU, and Ohio all look pretty decent to me). So if they want to make a new argument, fine. Say that we've had too many injuries (particularly the Blackshear injury) and that our offensive ability is too limited. Point out that we've been pretty lucky with FT% defense so far. But I'm tired of hearing the same arguments (home-heavy schedule, lack of quality wins, NBA talent) that are not applied consistently to other teams in the Top 15.
