Tearing it up.
Dayton law school
I'm hoping to take the opposite route. Dayton undergrad, hopeful Michigan MBA.
I have degrees from Michigan and Louisville. Needless to say, my Facebook page was at war last spring--and tensions are rising again lately.
Have degrees from Michigan and Wayne St. I have been channel surfing and I just can't find the Wayne St. game.
The fact that a 10-seed is playing an 11-seed in the Sweet Sixteen is pretty rare and significant, but if anyone is interested in a little trivia, an 11-seed has made it as far as the Final Four only three times since the expansion of the Tournament - George Mason in 2006, LSU in 1986 and VCU in 2011.
An 10-seed, however, has made it to the Regional Finals 9 times, most recently Davidson in 2008 and Kent State in 2002. Dayton, of course, accomplished this feat in 1984.
I don't really care what happens tonight so long as Baylor beats the University of Bo Ryan Flippin Bo Ryans.
I feel like the last three days took forever.
in tonight's games besides cheering against bucky here in Madison. By the way even though its a school nite I had a Hopslam on tap before heading home. Now a S ixpoint Bengali tiger and some wings. Go Blue.
while I cuddle up with a cute Neuroscience textbook and lots of basketball.
What gives? That other thread on March Madness that was just taken down seemed totally placid.
Dayton/Stanford had quite a bit of offense in the first few minutes, and it was thoroughly entertaining. Then, missed shots/fouls for everyone... hopefully this game picks up
Am really expecting a close to dominant whisky performance tonight. These fools just don't know about the B1G.
OT and not thread worthy news but UMass is dropping out of their football-only membership with the MAC.
Unknown where they will go. Should be back to DI-FCS.
Damn football unions!
There is no one watching the Baylor Wisco game. Graveyard. Maybe normal for sweet 16?
in the west, but I wouldn't hurry to see the badgers. Baylor looks tentative.
Can't decide if I should root against Wiscy or not. I hat their style and Bo Ryan, but mildly want to support the Bee won gee
Shaka says no to Marquette
Completely lose control at UCLA?
Man if Stanford could have gotten a bucket there, being down single digits would have had to have been a Good feeling considering Dayton really owned the half.
Wisconsin looking swell against the Baylor zone. Poor Creighton, just didn't have the guns to match-up against Baylor. Wiscy certainly does.
Why is Baylor going zone? Wisconsin will destroy that. Baylor is physical and talented enough to go man to man.
Baylor needs to go man. They are getting blasted in the ass
I've seen every Baylor game this year (I've got family on the bench there) and believe me, they don't want to play man and you don't want to see it if they do. They turned their season around when they realized it wasn't an option.
Why? Because that's what they've been best at and honestly they are pretty good at it, especially this hot stretch they've been on. They've also been playing this zone almost strictly for a month now.
Now yes, they have to figure something else out right now, because said zone is getting shredded. But there is a reason they've been utilizing it.
Just like Syracuse.
That's great they play it, but it's not working against Wisconsin and if you watch Wisconsin at all you know it won't work.
I can really see 3 teams from the b1g in the final 4
Then I hope we beat the dog shit out of both. BLOWOUTS.
Baylor's gotta come out of this zone. Austin with 2 fouls now too.
I can't believe Creighton couldn't get open shots against this Baylor team. Wisconsin is passing up open shots because they know they can get even better ones.
Not that I think Creighton should be some dominant power, but this is ridiculous.
Agree somewhat. I think/thought Creighton is a damn good team. I mean they lead the nation in ppp (p/100p). In theory they had the firepower to match up to Baylor but in reality they didn't have a 7 footer, a la Frank Kaminsky, who is a pretty nice neutralizer to this zone. That's not the full story of course but in the game last weekend Creighton tried to go down low but it just wasn't happening like it is tonight and I think Baylor was better able to guard shots, hence Creighton getting very little good looks.
Does Gasser complain on every call?
I absolutely loathe Wisconsin sports.
This UW Baylor game final score may make you wonder whether it may have been from the women's tourney.
The Wisconsin defense is winning this game. They're doing well offensively but holding a team to 16 points. Very good representing the Big Ten.
is not only a Coach K protege, he looks and acts like him, too.
I dont think they look alike.
Frank Kaminsky's offer sheet:
Traevon Jackson's offer sheet:
Sam Dekker's offer sheet:
And on and on. What other coach is able to do this? I can think of one.
Sam Dekker was a 5 star, ranked by rivals as the 13th player in the nation. His offers are because he committed so early.
Ryan identified him and closed the deal before he blew up. Beilein does that too.
The other guys that are considered great coaches don't have to do any of this. Calipari, Krzyszewski, Williams, Pitino, Self--they've got five-stars falling into their lap and it doesn't matter if they're early or late to the party.
These two guys find ways to churn out championship-caliber teams without ever diving into the cesspool. Either they're plucking guys from mid-majors, or they're getting firm verbals a year before anyone else has realized the guy's any good, and then they use them to beat the teams that didn't recruit them at all or came in too late.
And not just because Michigan plays...
Because I'll take ALL FOUR games over any 1 game tonight.
Gonna be a fun night tomorrow...today, meh, thankful it's basketball, but that's about it.
Welp, so much for this Wisconsin/Baylor being the prettiest/best game of the NCAAT.
I was coming into it expecting a final score around 80-75 Wisconsin. This is the exact opposite of what I thought, besides the fact that Wisky is still winning.
Wisconsin will score 80. EVER.
They're probably more likely to score 80 in football to be honest.
I guess I was blinded by the 2nd half of the Oregon game. And I figured Baylor would destroy Wisky's defense.
And this is why I don't bet on sports.
