2nd round may be tough actually.
there would have to be some to wash away
2nd round may be tough actually.
Surely we can beat tge South Dakota State Jackrabbits.....right?
Should be able to. This isn't Ohio we're talking about
But I don't know what happens in the "3rd round"
This isn't a bad region at all.
4 seed in Auburn Hills
Looks like a pretty clean run to the Sweet Sixteen. Gets ugly after that.
Not the easiest route but getting it at the Palace helps, a lot.
Wow disrespected at a 4 seed. So much for body of work.
I don't like Akron either. I work with a bunch of Akron grads, as well as Ohio (U.) grads. I didn't like the experience losing to OU last year.
That didn't take long.
CBS just gave us some bulletin board material. Prove 'em wrong, guys.
We got an excellent draw. Kansas is a weak 1 seed.
Damn you gottlieb you said the same crap last year when we played Ohio. And you were right. Dammit we're screwed.
VCU Michigan should be a good game.
IT'd help if I had the brackets on paper in front of me, harder to analyze future matchups without the bracket in front of me :(
Writing them down as they announce them? ;-)
Getting a 3 seed would have been big especially in this region. The 4 seed gets us relatively tougher matchups in the first two rounds. I would have loved to play UCLA and NW state.
If we get to the Sweet 16, you would rather have Georgetown than Kansas?
The first two games are harder for us but I agree that a SS matchup with Kansas is better if we manage to get there.
That's a shame that MSU is a higher seed than us.
And time do we play?
Undetermined. That info usually comes out in an hour or two
The day is Thursday. If we win, Saturday. Time TBD.
Even though, we're the 4 seed. We got the better region than Sparty. They have Duke, Louisville and I think Valpo matches up well with them.
Anybody else think that Kansas will have trouble getting past UNC? If Mich can get to the sweet 16, anything can happen.
The top of our bracket is relatively favorable though: Kansas and Florida are not as scary as some of the other top teams.
One of my grad degrees from VCU and I'll be at Auburn Hills. Good news - I get to cheer for VCU and Michigan on Thurday. Bad news - I get to cheer against VCU on Saturday. Oh well!
I'd rather play Kansas. The big 12 was weak and they lost to Baylor by 25 points.
what time do we play Thursday?
Top 25 in 3%. That's not a good thing for a team challenged to guard the perimeter.
Miami has a very good draw up till the elite 8.
Crap. I do not like this. South Dakota? They have that good point guard... and we've never dealt well with those this season. I hope I don't see another App. State.
And look at the NCAA disrespect Miami. Typical childish punishment coming from the inept NCAA.
Auburn Hills is Thursday and Saturday. I haven't seen any times yet.
Pencil them in for the Final Four.
Wisconsin? Maybe Bo Ryan will extract some revenge from Ohio State.
I'm not sure they make it past Kansas St. And THAT should be one ugly game.
I don't know . . . OSU is capable of laying an egg at times. They're still very dependent on two guys (Thomas and Craft) for their points.
Who is going to beat them?
The west is the cake region. No way OSU doesn't make it to the final four
Everyone over to ESPN!
Looks about right. Feels like VCU could be trouble, but Kansas doesn't scare me at all.
