the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

No one picking us to win knowing that. Awesome team effort.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||This is the game||
that proves what most teams have come to realize, which is that it is absolutely worth a few extra losses to either play in a tough conference or load up the pre-confreence schedule with some meaty games.
One other observation -- if virtually every betting person realized that the Zags were way overseeded, what's up with the selection committee? Also, Oregon State.
|8 weeks 56 min ago||Ohio has a fairly clear path to the Final Four||
next two games are not easy, to be sure, but highly doable.
|8 weeks 9 hours ago||Huge Win||
Supporting case has been VERY supporting. We now have five offensive threats on the court at tipoff. Doubt we will matchup as favorably the rest of the way as we did today. That said, Trey must have at least one dominating game in the tourney, and Kansas has had a tough time this year against the top PGs in the country.
And, do not rule out another game against the Gophers.
|8 weeks 9 hours ago||Sweet Sixteen, Baby||
VCU drew a very, very bad matchup for their game, and we definitely get credit today for taking care of business. Big man was big. Time for the other two bigs to rest and get their heads on; we will need them as we go forward.
|8 weeks 10 hours ago||When they double down on the press||
we need to double them up on the scoreboard. Remember PSU, fellas.
This is a bad matchup for VCU. Everyone on the court for us can handle the ball, and our big guy is fast, getting after it, and has great court vision. We should really put them away early on in the second half.
No real need for Horford/Morgan today, but if we can hold on here, they'll be needed next week.

to Our Lady of Perpetual Ball Control.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Must really suck to be a G'town fan this time of year||
Forgot the number, but this is 5+ losses to double digit seeds. Consecutively.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Bad Matchup for VCU||
no guarantee, but we are good (if not incredibly well-practiced) at beating the press, and there are not a whole lot of teams that can put a hurt on you in transition in very short order like we can. If Burke can get clear or a double-team, the ball is going to move quickly to the hoop or to the perimiter for a good look at a three.

but man, the SEC is just plain bad. Total collapse in SEC for those teams they thought were slighted, and not looking so good after one night of the Dance.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Down goes UNLV!||
Cal looked pretty solid.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||One down ...||
Got it done with about a 70 percent game from Trey, but great how he did not let shooting funk screw up rest of his game. 4-5 assists on wide open threes b/c defender was sagging to clog lane. Great games from rest of starters. I assume Morgan gives us more than a minute going forward, and that we've seen the worst game Trey will play in tourney. Drive on!
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Four years seems like a long time||
guy is no longer a kid, and he's had some injury problems. That said, as long as it's not all guaranteed, he might be a guy who can move and produce in the kind of space that Megatron can provide. Keeping my fingers crossed.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||This shows you who he really is||
And, he's not going to change. Guy who reacts like this after a WIN, fergodsakes, is not likely to handle advertisty well. Why, I'd bet he's not beneath having his kids flop at the end of a close ...
You get the point.
Plus, with the great audio on that clip, think of what the MGoGif community will be able to do over the years by pasting someone else in for Meyer.
Be great to watch this guy melt down next year as he tries to defend this title without two POY candidates and much of the rest of the supporting cast.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||When I said "I'm sorry" to my drill sergeant at Ft. Knox||
he said "yes, you are. Now, apologize."
I think this fits Crean to a T.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||How about a little "act like you've been there before"||
which is what good coaches teach kids starting at about fourth or fifth grade. Good news is he's amped up the rivalry; nothing like being able to stoke the competiive fires with real, live douchnozzlery.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Poise||
We needed it over the last three minutes, and didn't have enough. UI did. Victor O grabbing 13 boards is a great example of how hustle = rebounds.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Solid game by Trey||
But, Oladipo was better for longer. My guess is he ends up B10 POY, even though he came on about midseason. Makes these FTs or the drive at the end and it might be different.
Only positive is that we defended well today. Rebounding was atrocious, but that was due in large part to shit calls at Zeller got all day long.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||We did that to ourselves||
But absolutely bullshit calls/no-calls at end of game. What the F?
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Make some FREE throws now||
And ice it.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Absolute crap||
Good job to get one there.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||That needs to be||
Intentional. Not even close.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||And, free throws||
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Poise.||
Would be valuable now.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Take THAT, Zeller!||
And, get a real first name.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Time for poise||
Good possessions, no bad three-jacks. Solid D.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Spike!!!||
Coming from everybody this afternoon. Need them all.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||If you told me we would be down 35-17 on the glass||
I'd guess we were down about 12-15. Being close is a gift now, got to take advantage.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Keep driving it||
Trey's shots will start to fall soon. Need another big in there badly.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Rebound, guys!||
This is where all the b.s. calls on Mitch hurt.
