The warm up to the main event. Get your comments in early because this probably won't be close.

Gottlieb when he said "the world is round."

If anyone said that to me on the air like I didn't know it, I would love some professionalism.

If you didn't know what the seeds were, you'd think Cuse was a 1 and UM was a 4. All the commentary is about UM having to find a way to win ... as if its Cuse's to lose. At least Vegas is on our side.

Jeez... Gottlieb looks like the biggest douche in the country and every time he opens his mouth he only seems to confirm it. The fact that he's a ND makes it a million times more annoying.

with even more 'experts' on the panel who demonstrate to the world that they know about as much as the average folks watching at home.

I feel like the only time I ever hear about it, it's because it's scoring like 5 pts on 10% shooting in big games. But I thought he was supposed to be sweet or something

I know they're both here for a reason, but judging by how Wichita State and Louisville are playing, I feel comfortable with saying we could beat either of them.

I think the talking heads at halftime were right. Louisville let Wichita St get comfortable at the beginning of the game and now they're in the zone. Louisvillle needed to come out and hit cinderella in the mouth but they let em build a 8-0 lead. Now look at where they are

Honestly, if I didn't know the seeds or names of the teams, I'd assume Wichita was the favorite.   They've looked like the better team most of the night.

I think Kerr made a good observation that UL hasn't been able to press as much because of the absence of Ware. This press defense has barely shown its head.

Anyone else noticing how far out Pitino walks out on the court even when there's a play in that half happening? He might get called for that later.

because (should we beat Syracuse) it reminds me too much of the hockey team's 2010 run where they were underdogs or widely picked to lose in every game..until the title game where we were finally favored and we looked like we lost a step. Would be the same setup for the basketball team. I think it has a way of taking the chip off your shoulder
