This Zags team might be pretty good.
If they stay healthy and don’t get the game rescheduled against Baylor, they will enter the Tournament undefeated. They’re like an NBA team out there and there isn’t enough talent thru the lineup on another team that can neutralize the weapons the Zags have. Only way they lose in the WCC is if they have a horrific shooting nite and the opponent is red hot. Only two places I could possibly see that happening is at San Fran and at BYU...and the Zags just eviserated both teams at the Kennel in the last 6 days.

I was surprised the final margin was what, 17? I watched till it was 23-3 and got on with my evening.

Friars up 2 leave some Freshman wide open from 3 with no time left and he buries it. I wanna throw up.

You guys are cornering the market on last-second losses already. But what Xavier did is a rarity. They actually ran an offense and executed and got a great look. Too many teams are all about dribbledribbledribble - ball screen - dribbledribblechuck. That was a breath of fresh air because too many times in just the last week, I've yelled at the TV that coaches are getting paid millions to draw up that crap in an end-of-game scenario.

@Orlando Penguin Can you figure out PSU?

Record is not impressive, but their start to the year improbably includes upsets against Wisky and a twenty point victory over VT, who just beat UVA yesterday. They also played OSU and Michigan really tight.

Yeah, the record says 6-7 but with the exception of the two Illinois games, they have had an opportunity to win every other game. They haven't lost to any crap teams. Their problem is that when they get into those late-game stress situations, they make a number of questionable decisions. They threw the game away against both Michigan and Indiana in those close losses. If they can shore those up and continue to play 40 minutes like they did against Wisconsin yesterday, then they still have a decent opportunity to sneak into the 68. However, their margin of error is virtually nothing and the conference is such a bear this year that there are no nights off except the home game against Nebraska.

Jim Christian fired. He may be a shitty coach outside of the MAC but the best press conference of all time wouldn't exist if he didn't coach at BC

If they wanted to stop the season now and just put Gonzaga, Baylor, Michigan, and Ohio State in the Final Four, I'd be fine with that.
