Probably in the minds of many UNC and UK fans the championship game is today.

I see the Basketball Media have a new whipping boy in Bill Self over his record in the Elite Eight....at least these coaches are 50 years old and have millions of dollars so they can handle it better than some player...sad

Watching the game, trying to care.
For me it's just the parsley left on the plate after eating a great meal.

Some shot clock woes in this one. i think they have stopped the game 3 or 4 times now. Not sure who the Zags want to see, SC or Florida. Maybe it won't matter. Just have to play free and do your thing, see if it will take you to the promise land.

We should beat either if we play 75% as well as yesterday.

Both wanna throw up the long balls. Looks like run and gun.

CBS will be pulling for a Zag - UNC/UK final. Oregon - Florida would probably be their second choice as of now. Or UNC vs. Anybody would probably be okay for them and could be the #1 choice.

Do we really need to see instant replays of players rolling their ankles ?

UNC's loss of Joel Berry could be huge

Watching the KY UNC game and it is fascinating to see the refs call touch fouls in some situations and allow player contact that would meet the definition of assault and battery in other situations. I have no idea how coaches prepare their teams for the randomness of NCAA referee calls. Coach Few seems to have the right formula so far.

By the way, who would have thought that opiate induced constipation is such a widespread problem that I need to watch 300 advertisements for a drug to treat it? My advice is to switch to cannabis and super premium vodka. No constipation, and even if you had constipation, you wouldn't remember you had it.

Ouch, the tourney is a crapshoot.

KY not looking like a team that wants to win at all costs. But refs are calling a wildly inconsistent game.

Go Bulldogs!

Watching Joel Berry shoot 100 mostly unearned foul shots isn't my idea of a great elite 8 game.

North Carolina should have a bigger lead. Sloppy end to the half.

Briscoe plays the whole game and does nothing. Doesn't Cal have the odd Mickey dee he can throw in?

These teams look very beatable to me. Bell for Oregon was more impressive than any player I have seen here. Brick city.

It is only poor shooting when West Virginia plays. Otherwise it is great defense.

MJ777
03-26-2017, 02:46 PM
Do I root for the ACC to be shut out or for Coach Cal to lose? Hmmm

UNC's best offense is a missed shot to rebound

Sloppy play by the "White" guy.

GU beats either of these teams if GU plays like yesterday.
But first the pesky South Carolina.

Go Bulldogs!

The cheaters against The Cheater. I'll take Cal cuz he's so transparently phony. The dad gum coach wears me out.

If that happens the championship will be 'Tainted.'

I cheer for the KY coach over the UNC coach and his ugly sport coats, but if GU gets to the NC game I want them to beat UNC as payback.

Go Bulldogs!

Definitely, neither of these teams is distinguishing themselves from the 3 teams already in the Final 4.

Think the Zags are going to need the Duck fan's help to even things up in the stands in the semis.

The cheaters beat The Cheater. Bummer. You think the Jet will mention Heels sad history on academics? Will Chuckles?

I don't know, but I hope GU v. Oregon happens. The TV ratings would likely suffer due to the game being a regional matchup. Would the GU haters tune in to see this matchup or would their bitter opinions that the Zags got lucky because they made it to the championship game without having to face a seed higher than a 4 keep them away? Many Husky fans would probably rather get a root canal than watch if that game happens. :explode:
