Final Four Game 1 Open Thread
Damn how old is Armstead? He looks like he's about 35.
that's cold-blooded, man
True_Blue tried to ruin Michigan's chances by doing something different than what was done before on this blog. Change is the enemy of streaks True_Blue!
Don't blame the man for just trying to give us somewhere to post. M shouldn't have waited so long! True_Blue I forgive you.
Just the Michigan ones. I wouldn't/won't wait till the last minute for that. Just didn't want to be hogging the boards, and when I didn't see this I threw it up. But I don't know if I'm even interested in a presumptuous scouting thread. This game will probably start off with Wichita hot, Louisville taking control, then a double digit win. I had to stop watching 2 hours of pre game when they stopped talking about Michigan. Starting to get nervous; not because we can't beat the Orangemen, but now we have something to lose, even if it's a great season either way. Watched Spartacus for the last 50 minutes of the CBS round table.
Sorry for offending you guys, I just wanted somewhere to talk and there was like 10 minutes to tip so I started one, but recognized my tardiness immediately after so...
We're just playing. Mostly.
I am getting superstitious about the Liveblog, actual Michigan thread, and snowflake thread. Not that the basketball gods really care, but I feel for the guy who screws it up.
Yeah, not serious. That said, a loss is totally your fault. You probably mixed red and yellow food coloring a lot as a kid, didn't you?!?!?!?!?!?
It is a plot to jinx us. Red and yellow makes ORANGE. I see what he was trying to do. My eyes have been opened.
That bald guy with Mom jeans looked super serious!
Why is Louisville wearing T-shirts for this game! Rabble rabble rabble... Team Kevin Ware vs. Team Cinderella. Should be interesting.
Seriously though, Rick Pitino's skin is the same color as Tim Roth's in Reservoir Dogs in the warehouse. Does he ever go outside?
Great comparison, gotta love anything Tarantino
hope to see them pull off the upset
I think Louisville is a bad match for Witchita, but Witchita is a bad match for Michigan.
Wichita doesn't look nervous.
Hopefully Kerr will dilute Clarks' ramblings
I haven't seen anything
I hope Trey gets these whistles tonight
reminds me of the 89 Seton Hall team we beat in final.Under appreciated,much better and tougher than most think.
Is it me, or is Smith getting an extra step on his drives to the basket?
taking that 'bunny hop'
but I am counting like 3-4 steps before he finishes
My father-in-law (Duke grad) would like to explain Louisville's poor play is due to the Duke curse. All teams that beat Duke lose the next game because they worked so hard against Duke. Urban legends, but I'm sure rooting for the Shockers.
I bet everyone that meets him knows within 5 minutes that he went to Duke.
yeah I'm sure that's why the Lehigh juggernaught lost next game last year
In six days.
May be over early. 8-0 WSU
I still have the feeling Louisville is going to end up winning by 10-20 but this is fun at the moment
Looking good so far. Usually takes Louisville a little time to get going though. Go Shockers!
Well, this looks a lot like last Sunday to me.
They just keep wearing those awful uniforms. Respect.
just went under, and as I was driving to the store a few minutes ago I hit their preset button and Genie in a Bottle by Christina Agulara was on, so I'm pretty sure it's at least 1999.
On the bright side, if there's actually a station that plays 90's music it should be good for some laughs. The girlfriend and I heard Macarena last night on the way to a party, so that was pretty awesome.
Guilty as charged.
Does anyone know why they are undervalued on kenpom?
60 minutes with a fresh story.....LINSANITY!!!
Syracuse better hope they aren't still calling these touch fouls for the next game. If they are Burke will have a field day.
If they called Michigan games this tight Trey would shoot 20 free throws.
Shut up Clark Kellogg, this is still a surprise.
I'm sick of Kevin Ware. Ya....I said it.
His story is Wareing me out.
I'm just sick that the story has turned to how Louisville will be overcoming some huge adversity if they win. This is the #1 team in the tourney and Ware is not the whole team.
but the team angle, c'mon, he was a bench player.
of Kevin Ware.Glad he's ok but I think CBS/Addias etc have milked the story dry.
This is why any team (WSU, 'Cuse, M) should hate the idea of playing L'ville. That guy in the corner of the floor is an emotional wild card.
Also they are the best team in the country...
The keep talking about him like he was martyred or something
I hate that pressing teams get away with constant fouling. It is like Craft and his hand checking. He does it so often they just stop calling it.
...drink everytime they mention Kevin Ware.
Or take a shot every time they show him.
I feel like this is BTN and Denard is in the crowd.
