AS I watch this first game on CBS, it's just becomes so clear how good and athletic these teams are. Few must be a genius to get us this far every year. In some ways, I can see why Kentucky is full of disdain. They simply don't think we're up to speed or at their level. And yet we somehow win and get reasonably deep in this NCAAA tournament. Amazing testimony to what this school and this staff has done.

And a sincere "Thank you" to CDC ( tournament) and to Reno ( regular season) for organizing the games daily and letting us know.....takes some time and effort.

Dittos, Abe. Zags now land top 50-100 players and develop them. Schools like UK, Duke, UNC get the top 1-30, and the difference in athleticism is huge between the two groups. Sure, we nab a top 30 player every now and then, but rarely.

What the staff does a great job at is get players that are student athletes that buy into the family concept at GU. It's a great combination, and a recipe for success on and off the court.

Barkley is going to be beside himself w/ joy. Glad that devastating injury to one of their best players didn't end this magical run Auburn is on. Knocked off KU, UNC and UK in successive games. Hmm, that's what Arizona did on their way to their only Championship.

NCAA can't be real happy either, what with Auburn's involvement in the FBI investigation. I see vacations of wins in the near future, thanks to their former assistant coach.

Can they do what U Arizona did in spite of that key injury? We will see. If they do win it will it end up being vacated down the road? The Coach is Bruce Pearl....

Yeah, vacated National Titles is a bad look. Is Louisville the only one? Vacated Runner Up, that's more palatable.

I agree, but it seems like 75% of the population has a disdain for Duke. Does CBS want Duke just because of Zion? Are they like the Yankees? A team many hate but watch anyway.

About as happy as # Louisville was about playing against UConn in Albany. Don't see how to avoid it though. Shipping the closest team geographically somewhere else would kill attendance.

I wonder what Kentucky fans are thinking? I guess the SEC didn’t prepare them to play a P5 team that was missing a key player. They didn’t get a 1 seed, but the #1 was taken out so no excuses Kentucky fans.

You’re not making any sense. All the teams left P5 teams. We load up on cupcakes for three straight months while P5 teams beat the crap out of each other. That is a fact.

And yet the Zags made it as far or further than UK, Duke and UNC. GU will be in the WCC for the foreseeable future so they will need to find a way to overcome their unhealthy diet.

So you don’t think that playing inferior opponents in our conference for three straight months produces bad habits and prepares us less for the rigors of March madness than if we were to play in a P5 conference? Even with our loss to Saint Mary’s we beat our conference foes by an average of 25 points per game; that is flat out absurd. The difference is that I believe that we are the best team in a mediocre or subpar conference. Kentucky fans believe that you cannot be the best team and play in an inferior conference.

Us, Duke and North Carolina were all one seeds and were eliminated in the elite eight. So according to our seed none of the three of us played up to it. But how many teams in this final four come from mid major conferences?

No college teams ranked #1 at any time this year are playing in the final 4. Only a single team that was ever ranked in the top4 is playing.

Auburn & TTech were both unranked for multiple weeks, and topped out at #7 for 1 week each. Auburn was unranked as late as March.

MSU had a single week at #5.

VA had 4 weeks as #2.

I want the Bizarro FF: Duke/Gonzaga/UK/Purdue.

I get what you’re saying. TTU was a bad matchup, especially with the Higgins ref crew. Yes, the Zags could have played tougher but perhaps were bloated from their dietary habits. We as fans can’t fix that so why over worry about it? I know, it’s a BB discussion board and it’s a topic to discuss so there is that.

Agreed that is why we lost (TOís), however the refs seemed to give Duke a lot more of a chance to win. Only 3 team fouls in 2nd half with 4 mins to go in the game.
