Very much so.

Bieilfeldts presence wasn't costly on defense, it was quite good actually. His presence on the offensive side of the court was where we were hurt; he has no screen and roll abilities, and it showed as we stalled quite a bit. Again, in my opinion his defense was a pleasant surprise (though maybe the rebounding was affected but I'm not sure having our other two would have mattered in this one...the ball seemed to find Sparty a lot easier as well, somewhat of a flukey aspect of rebounding sometimes).

I was thinking switching Lousiville and UCLA...would balance it even more in my mind.

Holy Midwest Region. 3/4 Final Four teams...plus Duke. Fok.
Iowa has a play-in game! Nebraska jumped them.

Maybe someone could have ran after the ball going out of bounds off of Caris instead of watching it?
|16 hours 45 min ago||This almost makes||
This almost makes sense...except that it's no where near in the same galaxy as "sense". How does your brain process that losing yesterday would have been a good thing?

Wow Glen...DO THAT MORE. QUIT SETTLING FOR LONG JUMPERS

Caris Levert is playing like shit, minus a shot or two he's made. Terrible shot there with Payne guarding him, pretty much puts them in transition and is a turnover-like shot. I liked HOrford's move to the basket, just tough going.
|17 hours 7 min ago||Very true on the Appling||
Very true on the Appling play. I think a few of the fouls on our bigs were fouls but the first one on Morgan was atrocious as Payne was fouling seconds before by clearing Morgan out, so I do think you have a point about Michigan never being "allowed" to play physical.
|17 hours 10 min ago||Yes, his screening action||
Yes, his screening action leaves much to be desired for! I think part of the issue is him not wanting to foul, but he's really just not good at the screen and roll action.
|17 hours 15 min ago||I'm not ref bashing today,||
I'm not ref bashing today, but to add to your comment, they happen to be the one's who thought Trey's block last year against Lousiville was a foul.
|17 hours 18 min ago||Man. Relax people. It's a 9||
Man. Relax people. It's a 9 point game. Beilfeldt is playing damn well. He shot twice becasue nothing else was happening, his shots were better than something another guy would have created out of those two sequences. The first one he was wide open. His defense has been damn near magnificent. I'm curious what travel calls in particular Beilein is pissed about? Did I miss something? I think before the Technical he was pissed that Appling was arm-bar-pushing off on his layup.
I do think some are right, we're not into it as much as they are. Which is fine, oddly enough. They're probably tired and aren't in the mood for being pushed around by the physical Spartans. Next week that would be an issue. Today? Not really, not a whole lot is riding on this outcome. THis isn't to say they don't want this W. I'm sure they do. Body langauge is telling, however.

3rd times a charm....even though the first two were as well!
Go Blue. Beat these buttholes.

Well put Bambi. I also agree with this. I've mentioned it in threads before but this year seems particularly full of teams from the 2-5 seeds lines that are going to be dangerous as all hell. I mean, every year there are teams from the 3 or 4-seed lines that are dangerous but this year has many, many teams underachieving at times and racking up losses that drops them to a "lower" high seed. Kansas, Lousiville, UNC, Michigan St., Villanova, Creighton, Kentucky, Duke, Iowa St., Oklahoma St. at an even higher seed, Baylor, Cincinnatti, etc. Hell, how's it going to feel for the possbile 7-seed who has to play Iowa at a 10-seed!?
We freak out over matchups we think will happen and half the time it doesn'teven work out that way. It's March Madness, and it's fun, we just need to take deep breaths more often and let the Bracket come out and go from there. We emphasize a lot of this seed/region talk a bit much,
I also this the Shockers are a damn good team can see them in the Final 4, again. Why they get looked down upon so much baffles me.

What I don't/didn't get was the Star Trek stuff. I'm fully aware of the actual sports aspect!

And a run by Sparty here, back up 18. 1:00 left.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Big spurt here by 'Scansin,||
Big spurt here by 'Scansin, actually. If they can play a little defense and get this back to 9-12 before half, all is not lost for them.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Sparty is balling right now.||
Sparty is balling right now. Wisconsin isn't exactly playing great*, but damn.
*Edit: Actally 'Scansin is playing like poo.

Good point, he's a bit of a shit-head on the court, for sure.

I don't know if your a huge overall College B-ball follower, though I'm sure you saw him in last year's Elite 8. Scotty Wilbiken from Florida is another ugly, ugly dude. Valentine has him beat, but man.
I'm sure they're stand up guys, but I can't help my observations.

Broadcasters brought up a good point. How many times will you have two Kaminski's in one game?

Hilarious! Nicely done.

Pizzahaus and the OP, Where are you getting your information? And why do you think this is common knowledge? You really think Sunday's games have no meaning? Some years the Sunday games may not be as important and the brackets are more or less set in place but this year there is quite a bit riding on tomorrow's games.

Read my diary peeps! BTN Selection Committe Show
I'm Kidding but the committee will not have the bracket done before the end of the games tomorrow. At times I'm sure they've been pretty complete in the past but tomorrow's games have quite a bit riding on them; the committee knows this and will plan accordingly.

Gottlieb is an assbag. I don't even care if that's misspelling of his name, he has no respect from me. He really thought it a good segment to talk about the basketballs and how they're slippery and the players aren't used to them, versus actaully talking about real aspects of the game?
