    Or what about St. Johns?

    Hopefully the Hoosiers get back to the title game, but with many good teams in the country, you got to have the right breaks.

    How many of them poor kids are getting "Sanduskied"? The NCAA should investigate but I know it won't.

    1974 UCLA; with Walton, Wilkes, Myers, had their 88 game win streak ended by Notre Dame and had a run of 7 straight NCAA Championships end.

    1975 Indiana, 31-1; undefeated until Kentucky edged them. Benson, May, Wilkerson, Buckner and Radford.

    1991 UNLV 34-1; lost to Duke in the Final Four. Augmon, Johnson, Spencer, Anthony.

    1983 Houston 31-2; Sigma Phi Slamma Jamma with Olajuwon and Drexler.

    Those are just four off the top of my head, I had to look up Notre Dames roster. Not very impressive.

    I hope so but I don't think it's possible. Indiana and Louisville are loaded with veterans.
