This isn't a list of the 64 best teams, it is a list of their 4 best teams of each seeding since '85. Now thats cleared up, I am sure there won't be any "02 Indiana makes the list but loses to Maryland who didn't" type arguments.

That list/article had lots of errors, but how do you put the 1998 UK Wildcats in, but not the 1996 Wildcats!? 96 team had nine NBA players. 

I could understand it if you're picking teams that had magical runs or something, but they also picked the 2012 Wildcats that just dominated. The 96 team was even more dominant, and went back to the NC game in 1997 with one of its best players injured all season. 

I think the author just picked teams he remembered the most with no real criteria.

I dunno.  I think I'd rank the 1996 Kentucky team slightly ahead of the 2012 Kentucky team.  Both teams sent a ridiculous number of players to the NBA but I think the 1996 team was a little more athletic (definitely deeper) and would wear the 2012 team down.  1996 team wins by 10.

In addition, Duke was on the list twice too. So subs can EABOD.

The 1990 UNLV team was a joy to watch.

Didn't show up for the SEC tournament either.

Meh, Kentucky will just buy another team next year.

Ten teams are on there more than once (including Butler & the Gators three times each).

That doesn't mean I'm not proud as hell of the team with that kid with my mom's last name that got me interested in college basketball as a fifth grader, and the one I watched all 85 minutes of in the tournament, in person, from about fifteen feet away, including watching dook lose spectacularly.  (And yet I still wonder what would've happened if it wasn't Corey Wright taking that shot....)

I can't wait for the day they finally make it back to the Final Four.  It probably will top October 27, 2004 for me.  It definitely will if they ever, God willing, win it all.

Until the day that dream comes true... GO MOTHERFARKING FRIARS!

Apparently the way to get on the list is to beat KU in March.

Bucknell
Bradley
VCU
Northern Iowa
UTEP
Arizona
Syracuse (twice, fark them)
Duke
Kentucky

Or lose to them
Davidson
UAB

OR be them! YAY!
1988

I love March. I hate March.

The biggest thing I remember from Navy's run in 1986, was David Robinson dropping 50 on Duke and still losing his final game.

Best team I've ever watched. Their dismantling of Loyola and Duke was brutal. Duke's next two years were of course great, but compared to the 1990 UNLV team...I dunno.

My James Madison University Dukes made it to the second round of the NCAA tournament in 1982 only to face the Carolina Tarheels.

We lost by one point on a dubious foul called in the last seconds. The Heels went on to win it all.

Next year, as fate would have it, we reached the second round again--and the Heels again.

We all made the trip down to Greensboro. This year would be our year!

We lost by about 40 points.

My fave NCAA team ever, and probably the easiest bracket to ever fill out.

List is full of fail without 1979 University of Pennsylvania Final Four team.  #9 seed and Ivy League Champion.  Beat #1 seed UNC in Raleigh and then beat Syracuse. Went on to the Final Four.

Since the Ivy League did not (and I believe still does not) offer athletic scholarships.  They were most likely the only team in the tourney with "pure" student athletes.

The list specifies it is only teams in the 64 team era, which began in 1985. Which is why the 83 NC State team isn't there, and why UCLA doesn't dominate the list.

How is 2002 Indiana on the list, but not 2002 Maryland? Stoopid.

Great clown Pagliacci's pick-me-up: This isn't a list of the 64 best teams, it is a list of their 4 best teams of each seeding since '85. Now thats cleared up, I am sure there won't be any "02 Indiana makes the list but loses to Maryland who didn't" type arguments.
