Don't believe this one is posted anywhere. It's actually a take on how good the Zags are rather than why they will fall. It's a good read from ESPN's Myron Medcalf, and as he notes, it is simply the most likely cause should they fail to make the Final Four:

Here's a bonus read form USA Today's Mike Lopresti regarding SMC and their ability to beat anyone not named GU.

Mods, if this should go in the pregame press thread please move!

Southern held Olynyk to 10 and Harris to 12 last time they played (http://scores.espn.go.com/ncb/boxscore?gameId=303162250)

Hope the guys can come through tomorrow.

Wow thats pretty good news if you ask me if Old Kelly dropped ten on them, pretty sure he will at least double that. Anybody know how many mins he actually played that game?

I like how Dower dropped 19 on them in 17 mins.

It's on the link: Harris for 23 and Olynyk for 17.

Steven Gray (28) and Sam Dower (19) top scorers.

Wow - rebounding was 54-11 (23 offensive to 1)! Mike Hart with 4 rebounds in 7 minutes.

26 to 15 on assists.

But, they did out block us, 5 to 1

Kelly was also sporting four fouls and played only 17 minutes. 12 guys saw playing time, with everyone getting decent minutes; and we hung 117 on them. While I know they are not the same Southern team, I see nothing in that box score that is particularly disconcerting.

Go Zags!

Don't count like that, i see us as clear favorite too, but this southern team has improved a lot. The season we beat then they had something around 4 wins total

This. Mr. D is the key to this whole thinking. Add just a touch of offense from Mr. Hart and the foes will have a problem that cant be solved in 40 minutes.
