The early season is the most fun time for delusional thinking. It is much harder to engage in this optimism in late April, although I was deluded into thinking that UVa was about to win the NCAAs for four years in a row in late April and USC won all four times.
UVa showed up at the NTI in not so great form, yet dominated Cal pretty badly. I find it very hard to believe we would have disposed of USC or UCLA in the same fashion at that tournament.
