I've done pregame or pre "whatever day of the tournament" threads on each day thus far.

Along the same lines...if anyone but M-Wolverine makes an in-game (Open) thread, I vote it automatically gets deleted.

KEEP THE STREAK ALIVE! Survive and advance. GO BLUE!!!

You gotta know it's going to be a great game (and a Wolverine win) when we even got the most anti-Big Ten analyst (except maybe Charles Barkley) to pick Big Blue today. I was watchign SportsCenter this morning and caught that Bruce Pearl is picking us to beat Florida! Hail! Oh and Fuck Florida!

I like how we've been tested by VCU and Kansas while Florida has breezed to the E8. I think we've overcame more adversity thus far and should take it to Florida.

It also could mean that we're tired or we've settled after the KU thriller.

You can always make up storylines or reasons for wins and losses. In the end, control what you can control. Hustle, scrap, fight, execute, work harder than every Florida player on the floor.

If shots don't fall, oh well, but you can't get outworked. That said, I feel the shots WILL fall for us, but you still have to outwork the Gators to earn those t-shirts, hats and that pair of scissors.

Hi! My family and I just flew into Dallas this morning (I type this as our plane taxies to the terminal). Does anyone know of a good/easy place to gets 3 tickets for the game? Is it sold out? What will the cost of scalped tickets be? I hope we can get some by game time. Thanks.

A buddy of mine is down there and said that all the Kansas fans are in the area this morning trying to sell their tickets. I'd head towards the area of the stadium and see what you can get. I would venture to guess they wouldn't be asking for much either. Good luck!
