Dick Vitale's Always Futile 2011-12 Projections: He likes Texas

Every year, just after the NCAA Tournament, ESPN asks Dick Vitale to take a look forward to the next NCAA basketball season and project the top teams. Now, ignoring the fact that we didn't even know who most the best teams were this year for months, we have an annual problem. WE DON'T REALLY KNOW WHETHER MOST OF THE BEST PLAYERS WILL RETURN TO SCHOOL. Undeterred, Dicky V takes his shot every year, and this year, he's high on Texas, ranking them No. 3 ... assuming their stars come back, etc., etc., etc.

Watch his 400 hand gestures in one minute and predictions that UNC's, UT's and Ohio State's stars will eschew the NBA for another year after the jump:
