One of many, I'm sure:

They are, quite reasonably, focusing on our big loss to Duke and loss to Wake. Some think it's a great matchup, others feel like they got screwed (although mostly that stems from the potential home game with Syracuse if they win). All agree that the 3 hour time zone difference may be a big help.

I hope the team reads this:

"I'm not afraid of this game more than i'm worried that we'll lose focus for the second because this one will come so easily."--FSU board poster

The only thing they are worried about is the guys are looking past gonzaga too much because they should "whoop our @zz"

Things said on message boards have no relevance to what the individual teams think. I'm sure the coaches and players for both teams could care less what some anonymous internet poster says.

Lot's of predictions favoring the Zags in the prediction thread.

Interesting...

Are we the 'best' 8 seed or do they even bother to 1,2,3,4 'em after the first couple seeds?

They do a full S-curve for all 65 teams - but of course there's a lot of shuffling after that for the various reasons (rematches, same conferences) including up or down as much as 2 lines...

Interesting comment from Lunardi:


Landon (Omaha,NE)
Gonzaga will beat FSU and I think will have a great chance at beating Syracuse

JOE LUNARDI
I see it the opposite way, Landon. Am not super impressed with Gonzaga and think FSU will stifle them fairly easily.

Here is another message board with a lot of FSU fans on it. Most of the FSU fans on the site are far more reasonable than those ono the other. It's a pretty cool site with off topic stuff and sports mixed in.

This topic is ridiculous. Do all power conferences think this way? Whining about how the third team out of the A-10 got a 7 seed and FSU got a 9? If he didn't know, the ACC was not nearly as good this year as they normally are. Not even close.

My mind is officially boggled by how some of these fans are talking about the ACC and their team and whining about their seeding. I really hope we do not come off like this. Sheesh.

1) Duke #1 seed
2) Maryland 4 seed
3) FSU 9 seed
4) VT NIT
5) Clemson 7 seed
6) Wake Forest- 9 Seed
7) Georgia Tech 10 seed

VT came in fourth and didnt even make the tournament, Clemson finished sixth and got a 7 seed. Its all based on RPI not overall standings, hopefully the fans realize this

Yeah, it's based on the FULL body of work, not just conference play.

The FSU rivals site listed in the OP is a joke of a site. They have terrible reporting an moderate the boards like Nazi's. I wouldn't go over there just because they have the most delusional group of FSU fans. There are far better boards to talk reasonably about the game like their scout site or here http://www.the-mainboard.com/forum/index.php/board,1.0.html

I don't even see a basketball board on the site you just posted again.

Not wanting to get into the sociological aspects of it, but comparing any sort of NCAA seeding issue to being sexual assaulted is pretty nauseating to me.

Bump - see what they are saying. Probably beating up their own team, with little regard for our defense and offensive skills.

Really, if you have a chance, it is pretty good stuff. Hmmmm, sound a lot like our board after Duke.

It is more frustration that we have given Leonard Hamilton eight years to fix this team and he has failed to get us even one NCAA win in eight years as coach. It's not for lack of talent as we have had some good players come through the programs such as Al Thornton and Toney Douglas.

I thought FSU played pretty well, especially limiting their turnovers (only 8, with 15 assists - great ratio).

I'm certain they are surprised we out rebounded them 39-27, but we really did a great job on the glass. Plus, we shot free throws at 73% (not great, but good for us).

Here is the best link from their board discussing Gonzaga after the game:
