FSU v Zags

Taken the Ant Wright approach on this one. Both of these teams are unstoppable!

Any experts on both these teams?? I’ve only seen one Gonzaga game against OSU and they got some good shooters. Haven’t really seen any FSU games. Any ideas on who would we match up better against based on style of play?? Seeding at this point means squat so don’t wanna hear that.

Both these teams are playing very spastic. If Michigan can play with the same kind of confidence against either of these teams, we are Final Four bound.

If you ask me at this point in a still young game, Michigan can beat either of these teams, but it's weird to watch Gonzaga play somewhat confused and unable to run their offense in the way that they would like. Florida State definitely has them out of their element right now.

I would personally rather play Gonzaga. FSU is deep and their bench scores more than their starters. Also, they are athletic and their center is enormous.

Gonzaga struggled in their opener and against OSU even with Tillie healthy.

I'll just drop this here - what I'm seeing from Gondola-FSU, and KSU-UK, does not impress me.  After what we just watched, these four teams don't stand a chance!

Gotta play like tonight and BTT and they are capable of playing. If so, they are in title game. UM’s best vs. Nova or KU/Duke possibly, could be a dog fight. These teams on this side of bracket though, no chance IF Michigan plays their game....like tonight.

Williams from Gonzaga is gonna be a handful. He's creating a lot of fouls with his drives. We're gonna have to trap him and maybe double him as soon as he gets to the paint. Force him to pass it

Let’s go Noles! Another more talented Zags team putting in a real poor shooting performance so far. Love the way this is playing out.

Gonzaga looks out of sorts, but FSU is also fouling at a high rate (15 PFs at halftime).  That will hurt them especially if the Zags aren't afraid to be aggressive.

FSU is very athletic, but Gonzaga going 1-for-10 on 3s seemed like bad luck.  This game should get tigher, but I'd prefer FSU simply because they're a slightly better version of the A&M team Michigan just ran out of the building.

we need some Beilein wizardry for attacking full court pressure.  We kept throwing it into the corner and getting trapped there.  Everything after that looked pretty good; when they managed to get it out of there, good stuff often happened.  Otherwise, FSU looks somewhat sloppy and overly reliant on their athleticism.  We can beat this team even without hitting 10 threes in the first half.

I live in Tallahassee; I've been to a few games this year. They turn the ball over a ton and don't shoot the ball from 3 very well. Somehow, they're a team that figures out how to win. They play pretty solid defense. They're long and athletic, but I think Michigan matches up really well with them. It always seems like someone different is stepping up every game. They are very streaky shooting the ball. Angola is probably their most clutch guy, which should be an interesting matchup for Z.

Sneed from K State just quoted Rasheed Wallace after he fouled out on a seemingly bad call and Washington klunked the first free throw.  I haven't been watching, but with three fouled out, worries me if we see these refs in any of our games.

Gonzaga looks toast. They just can't get anything going offensively.

Not that I'm complaining. Gonzaga was the last team ranked ahead of Michigan on Kenpom on this entire side of the bracket, iirc. Thank you, 'Noles!

This tournament ate subs before it started last week. This shit is crazy! At this rate, I wouldn't be surprised to see Duke or Nova go down...
