Agreed

IU Hawks fan 03-16-2013 11:55 PM

More like **** Tom Crean, though. One day he'll figure out a game plan for that team.

Wait, Crean, game plan...lol

Not that Buzz is an X's and O's wizard, but that's the one thing I don't miss about Crean. He wasn't the best at game plans or changing schemes within a game. Buzz is finally starting to bring in some good recruits that aren't Juco transfers, but we'll see now what happens after the conference shuffle.

Mixed up arbitration and RoY award eligibility in the last thread. Derp.

GSP proved yet again, I had 0 doubt he would, that along with Anderson Silva his is the best MMA fighter in the world. Both as so dominant in every area and can beat you however you let them. Really only thing left for either is to fight as middleweights.

I think Hendricks has a shot against him

MurrayBannerman 03-17-2013 09:22 AM

Anderson does a good job of proving that when he plays patty cake with guys like Leites and Maia.

Illinihockey 03-17-2013 05:57 PM

Like the match up vs Colorado. They blow

IU Hawks fan 03-17-2013 08:41 PM

Sucks that IU blew their chance to play in Indy, but overall I'm happy with the bracket. Would rather play Miami than any of the other three 2 seeds.

Teemu 03-17-2013 08:43 PM

Not sold on Miami as a contender, either. Only have that one big win over Duke, otherwise an unimpressive resume.

No Fun Shogun 03-17-2013 08:56 PM

Liking Illinois' first round chances.

Louisville over Georgetown in the Title Game

MurrayBannerman 03-17-2013 09:31 PM

Wow. We get the absolute hardest draw.

**** me.

IU Hawks fan 03-17-2013 09:32 PM

IU plays Friday at 3. Looks like I'm ducking out of work early.

Sir Psycho T 03-18-2013 03:20 AM

You guys can bash Miami all you want but we'll see who laughs after round 2.

That unproven resume includes a ACC regular season and Tournament Championship. Beating Duke, UNC, NCST and other basketball powerhouses.

RayFIN 03-18-2013 09:19 AM

Had no idea Gonzaga was a #1 seed caliber of team this year. I haven't purposely followed college hoops at all this year, but do see the occasional headline and such, not to mention you guys posts... although those are mostly Big 10 related, minus one outcast we have here.

I believe in Miami. People who haven't seen them at all have no idea how good they are.

UNC and NC State are 8 seeds, not exactly powerhouses this year.

UNC, at the end of the season, was one of the hottest teams in basketball after switching to that small lineup.

UNC was 1-7 vs the RPI top 25, 2-8 vs the top 50. Since going to that small line up, they beat 1 team that made the NCAA tournament, NC State (RPI 33) at home.

What do pre-change statistics have to do with a completely new look team? UNC was bad before the change. I liked that better, too.

Point is, they weren't great post change, they just didn't play any good teams and the teams that were good they did play kicked their butts.

Cullksinikers 03-18-2013 10:35 AM

I want to see U of I beat Marquette to **** WOATie off.
