View Full Version : Deciding if I feel better about the Memphis game?

I just watched them disrupt and destroy Tulsa in the C-USA title game. 1 thing is certain for Memphis, they can go very deep in the tourney as they are very unlikely to get upset by a team that is less athletic than them. The question will be how they face up with the teams whose rosters are loaded with McDonald All-Americans as they lose some of their athletic advantage. They destroyed the Zags, so we know they can handle longer teams with talent, but how will they do face up with the Carolinas, Pitts, UConns and Louisvilles of the world?

On February 9, 1980, at Madison Square Garden -- the Soviet Union national hockey team played and defeated Team USA 10-3. It wasn't pretty. It wasn't close. It was embarrassing. It was a drubbing.

The two teams had a more publicized rematch in Lake Placid a couple of weeks later.

I hope the Zags get a shot at a Memphis rematch this post-season.

Right now, just judging by the Eye Test, I think Memphis would handle top teams like UNC, UConn, Pitt, Mich St, etc. Tigers look scary good right now, and it seems to have started in Spokane.
