Question: Why the eff does Coach K get away with letting Wojo do the halftime interviews??! I don't care one way or another, I don't listen to the boring talking points every coach says at that moment, but the double standard irks me a bit.
|17 hours 8 min ago||They lost by 4 to Louisville||
They lost by 4 to Louisville in the Final Four.
They beat Pitt, LaSalle, Ohio St. and the "overrated" Gonzage team. I get that the Zag's bowed out early and everyone "knew they would" but they were still a damn good team the Shockers beat.
Anywho, I don't mean to be argumentative, I guess I just don't see why people continue to doubt them. (I sound like an alum or a fanboy probably, but that I am not!)
|17 hours 17 min ago||They did the same thing last||
They did the same thing last year (played a "weak schedule") and made the Final Four. I mean, its your opinion and you may end up being right, of course, but I personally don't get the overrated-label that Witchita St. gets. They have the same roster that made a Final Four a year ago. They be good!

Yea just turned the tube on a bit ago and saw Kansas' 1-seed line slipping away. Srsly, they can't keep a 1-seed after this, right?
I'm of the mindset Florida is good; really good this year. I want nothing to do with them. I think they would dominate us down low too much. Witchita St. is another team I'm not sure why everyone's down on. They played awesome ball last March and have most of the same players? And they just went undefeated. Why do people think they're overrated? I honestly think we match up better with them than Florida but really don't want any part of them either.

Going to be on a "bar crawl" in Wisconsin tomorrow and may not get to see all of the game tomorrow. If things were really on the line I would make sure to be able to see the game. It's turned out that not much is riding on tomorrows outcome; which, is nice.
But....the past day or two has me really wanting to see as much of the game tomorrow as I can, purely because it's big man's Sr. Day. I know it doesn't mean shit to him if some nobody in the Midwest watches or not, but part of this fandom concept is growing attached in ways to some of these guys; these late-teen through early twenties year old "guys". Good on Jordan for seemingly having a good head on his shoulders these past few years and manning up when his number has been called. It ain't over yet. Hopefully he can help add another banner to the school and another accomplishment to his athletic resume.

Mid-range would be more ideal than the LONG range 2 pointers that get taken. I hate to bitch, I mean they're winning basketball games. And they went 70% on long shots one game ago. To some I'm just bitching to bitch but there are times where I wish they wouldn't settle for some of the shots they take, and would actually strive for more of the actual mid-range shots.

Loved the write-up.
My GF and I were watching BTN Finale after we'd gotten home from work Tuesday night. The lockerroom scene from Michigan's outright Championship trophy being presented to them showed up on the screen. My GF mentioned something or another about a player not named Morgan, after the announcers on the tele had mentioned something about a player or two, not named Morgan. I THINK this is how it went, anyway. But finally the screen showed J-Mo holding the trophy in the lockerrom and the rest of the team, like mentioned in BiSB's brilliant post describes, looks on with respect withheld excitement; I semi-exclaim, "Damn right...this is Jordan Morgan's team. That's your team leader right there".

I'll say Trice could have gotten his arms outta McCabe's grill. Can't do that shit nonetheless. Interesting final call though. Byrd's dumbass got ejected.

Time for Wisconsin to put up 100 points as there's no way they'd be able to replicate that against Nebraska this weekend.

Some will say no. I tend to think, how the hell DON'T we pass them?! Another road loss for Duke, not that Wake was a good team, but another showcase for Duke not getting a Road Win, something the Committee "says" they like to see.

We all Nebraska basketball fans here? I mean, I'm rooting my ass off for them to get into the Dance. I've been nearly as pumped for Nebraska's games the past couple weeks as Michigan games...okay not quite nearly, but the more they win the more I get excited to see their Win column go up.

From what I've read, and this makes sense to me, getting real MiGs back then would have been impossible...so yea, wrong aircraft, but it kinda had to be that way?

Brian do you think Glenn was "shsshhhh-ing" you last night when he shhhh'd the crowd?! (Like, an Adam Woodbury type thing he did against us to hush the Iowa faithful that didn't think he could dunk).
I've no doubt it was to the Illini fans but upon seeing GRIII do it it reminded me of said Woodbury incident and I find it funny to have him shhh-ing you/the blog (even though you guys' are right about his slumping and overall play this year).

This has been my "deal" with them as well. Like, everyone wants to paint them as the high seed out of the Big Ten, likely a 2 seed, but the fact they're mentioning them on the 1 line is I suppose a credit to Wiscy. But as you say, once the brackets are out, the same people praising them are going to call whoever they draw in the 2nd round (the real 2nd round) a likely upset.

Agree, pretty well done. I took notes! I may make up a diary; for the die-hards, most of it isn't necessarily news but the rule changes at least are pretty interesting.

I'll have to catch this at 2am (CST). Sounds pretty interesting.

However, the trickiest one of all, in my opinion, has been forgotten!
North Carolina State and University of Nevada (Reno) WOLFPACK.
