Despite their ranking very few picked them to win it all. Michigan would be favored to win if they played during the tournament. Respect for their season and the classy way Bennett handled the loss but it shows how in college basketball the only thing that matters is the tournament

Agree, beating one of the storied programs would have been better, as well as a last second win. Don't get me wrong, it's amazing that it happened, but personally it felt a tad anti-climatic because it was such a blowout. Maybe its because I always think of the Princeton/Georgetown game and expected a #16 seed to win on the last play...not run the #1 seed out of the gym.

Congrats retrievers.

But teams have been a lot closer really ever since the one and done rule came about.    UVA shocked me!     I thought they really could win it all and they shit the bed.
