2012 is real.
"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."
My bracket is dead already. If Kansas loses, it makes it even deader.
Queme los brackets.
There will be much beer and pussy flowing in Cedar Falls tonight...
And the bracket just got wide fucking open for OSU and MSU.
IF? WHEN! This makes my MSU to Elite 8 that much better. I wasn't confident in Kansas. They lose some inexplicable games. I figure Izzo, for the coach he is, was going to be the one to upset them. This makes it that much easier for them.
Yeah, but MSU barely won yesterday. I think Maryland beats them.
Yeah, I wasn't expecting UMd to look as good as they have in the tournament. I still take State, although probably only because I'm more familiar with them.
Otherwise no dinero for Steve
I've had a hard time cheering for KU ever since that self-promoting creep Larry Brown was at the helm. (Aside: I recognize his ability as a coach. I just don't like him.) It seems that ever since then, they've gotten (media) out of proportion to their ability.
How many years did they plow through a usually mediocre Big 12 and then wind up playing key tourney games in "Kemper Arena?" They had a few Final 4s pre-Self, but it's much easier to get there as a 1-seed. You play nothing tougher than a 4-seed prior to the regional final. Quite often (as was the case with UMich in '93) you get a break and the 2s and 3s get upset.
Where is the guy from the other day who said he didn't care that Bill Self didn't try to graduate his players because he was a better coach than Roy?
I want nothing to do with the graduation debate, but I believe Bill Self is a better basketball coach than Roy Williams (who is obviously a great coach too).
I don't really mind KU losing, but any good news for Sparty is bad news.
The way UNI looks, that will be just as tough of a game as Kansas would have been.
