Living in Richmond, VA, it'd be hilarious for me if we beat LSU (Will Wade), then VCU in the final, then Texas (Shaka Smart) a few weeks later. The butthurt in this city would be incredible.

As I recall, Chaminade has only won about six or seven times in the entire history of the Invitational, but I am pretty sure - based on my memories of watching it - that Rick Barnes was the opposing coach in two of those games (one of them coming from his time at Providence, I believe, and the other while he was at Texas), so there's that anyway.

Please stop making so many threads where you just whine and cry in the OP. It's unbecoming...I don't even know if I used that word correctly, but it feels like it fits. Just give us the information.

Then I challenge you to also please stop making posts to WD threads where you whine and cry about whatever he says. The man is entitled to his opinion, and I commend the effort he puts in to keep this board updated on all things Michigan. 

Does it honestly bother you that much that he wishes the game were played earlier? I perfectly understand why its played so late, but what does it matter to you that he's expressing his opinion?

Your WD-obsessed responses are infinitely more annoying than anything WD actually posts. Stop acting like a teenage girl who's afraid another classmate is more popular than she is.

I can't believe WD is allowed to have an opinion and express it here on MgoBlog. Only you should be able to have an opinion Mr. Yost. Everyone else should just shut up. But not you. You're fine

If you're heading to Maui check out the condos I own / rent on the Island, though they are in Waiela (30 minute drive): http://WaileaEkahiVillage.com. Also, my mother and I (and her father make 3 straight UM grad genereations) have 200+ condos listed for rent by owner all over Maui - we started before the likes of VRBO or AirBnB. Check those out, http://MauiOwnerCondos.com.

Shameless Plug Over.

Phil Knight of Nike turns 80 this year so Nike is sponsoring two 8-team simultaneous tournaments in Portland over Thanksgiving weekend to honor him.  That took out 16 potential teams, including three of last year's Final Four.

UNC, Duke, Oregon, Stanford, Gonzaga, Connecticut, Michigan State, Ohio State, Arkansas, Georgetown. Texas, Oklahoma, Butler, Florida, Portland and Portland State make up the field.
