Hey, it's better than typing "OH," right?
The main two results we want have been talked about already. If they were to happen to me it doesn't matter what else happens as that would be fantastic. However, if our game and State's game goes how we want then the following would make a great day even better:
- Florida losing to Kentucky
- Florida State losing to Clemson
- Indiana losing to Purdue
- Wisconsin losing to Illinois
- Creighton losing to Illinois State (this one is debatable if you want Northwestern to squeak into the Tourney)
Rooting for the home team is overrated today as all of these games feature road teams that we want to win. This of course includes the Marquee games. Now, let's get the most important result of all.

30 min to tip off ad no one is talking about it?
Let's finish strong and hope MSU falters later today. Go Blue!
Since it's a relatively slow day, I thought I'd share a highlight tape from one of our incoming freshmen for the Lady Wolverines. Also since my alma mater, ULS is not well known for producing Division 1 talent, much less Wolverines, I am enjoying this rare opportunity.
EDIT: I still can't figure out this new embedding system.

Slow day on the board so I thought I'd ask others about something I've wondered about for a while. Having watched a good bit of the B1G women's bball tournament this week I was struck by how few people were in attendance and how far below the rim the game is played. I coached boy's basketball up to the JV level in High School and generally speaking in about 9th grade the game changes dramatically because at 15 many boys can elevate above the rim. In the games I watched this week none of the woman could get close to the rim, much less above it. And the pace the ball was pushed up court seemed slow as hell to me.
My whole life I've been told we should pay just as much attention to woman's sports as mens but are the games they play even close to being equivalent? I think a good 9th grade boys team would beat the woman's national champion. Is the reason interest is minimal in woman's collegiate basketball simply because the quality of the game is roughly that of 8th grade boys?
