a series of one-on-one attempts. They have been able to get away with it over the years due to their superior talent but youth caught up with them this year.

Calipari is a great recruiter but a very average coach. And I bet we'll find out at some point as to why he has been such a great "recruiter" (and the NCAA, being the gelded organization they are, will do nothing).

He's a great defensive coach, or at least very good with limited experience. But with all his baggage excluded he seems like the type of coach who takes his talent exactly as far as it would go. In other words, I never watch his teams and think they are demonstrably better than their raw talent.

Cal is a great NBA agent, but coach no. When you have as many lottery picks every year as they do and have only one championship with keys players from another coaches roster, then you've way underachieved.

Now that coach K is cutting into the players Cal usually got, we're seeing just how average of a coach he really is. Definitely not worth the inevitable sanctions be brings.

I think you’re referring to Louisville? No doubt Kentucky is dirty in general but no evidence these kids are. Neither team looked good though I hope we have a shot at one of the teams in that region (!!).

They didn't know how to pay as a team yet, but that didn't mean I wasn't scared like crazy of playing that crazy athletic Blue Chips / Fab 5-like team

Man we're the favorites to go into the final now.

But we can easily, easily lose to this FSU team. Or one of these other guys. It's one thing when you lose to a better team--I can handle that. But we're getting into triumph-or-heartbreak territory here. 

Glad we've got Beilein.

And soon another 9 seed are remaining in our half of the bracket. Not looking ahead... not looking ahead... not looking ahead...

CRASHES and BURNS!!!

All the MickyD All-Americans, the slickest and most slippery slimey coach, one of the cheatingest programs in all of college basketball, and they FAIL vs a #9 seeded K-State playing 8-on-5 basketball.

BWA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!!

It's still survive and advance one game at a time.

Though, still incredible that only 1 of the top 16 teams in our half of the bracket is alive.

Get ready and win Saturday.
