    Yes, you said it.

    So mentally tough to come back after giving up a lead.



    Plus, the officials insisted upon being star players in the game.


    Plus OSU had to have thought that we'd wilt. Hell, I might've thought we'd wilt.

    I am not sure that there's been a more satisfying win in the tourney other than the "big ones" aka "Stanford, Florida, Xavier (last year and this week), you know.

    I love that this year's team has progressed to the point where we can give up a lead late, but still gut out a win. This team has some sort of fortitude!

    Then I remembered you guys had a game to play today in that Big NCAA Tournament.
    An event that is often times foreign to some of us.
    GREAT WIN guys.
    Put a BIG X...on that next win.

    I was sure they had lost after OSU took the 4 point lead. But, man. The Legend of Zach Norvell (and Rui) just keeps growing.

    - I'm a nice guy, but I have to say the little mean part of me is so so so happy that we beat osu, and in doing so put dackich in place for his stupid pick of his son's team to win the tournament.

    You have my respect, good sir. Gracious winner and loser, I tip my cap to you.

    I often think you're too sensitive, and wrong! Ha. Unless you're right, then I want you to leave. And when smc wins !? GET OUT!

    But honestly, you're a class act, and being able to interact with the program that is your most significant foil can be no easy task. I commend you.

    Nevada Don's always been a class act.

    OTOH, I've got a bit of the jaws at sideshow06 & mjgogaels for a couple of comments on the Gael board. THEY know the comments I'm talking about, and I'll leave it at that.

    If we do join another conference, we're leaving a parting gift of $5 million to the conference...and we aren't done yet.

    I saw that too and I knew it would solicit a comment.
    They are good guys with much GU respect so I'd ask you consider letting this one slide.
    You can nail them the next time (or the time after that )

    Thanks again all for your very nice words.
    They say that a "compliment is really more telling on the giver than the recipient."
    I think that's the case here.

    LOL, Don. I'm over it...just messing around.

    O/T, but it was one of the few times I had all 3 of my kids together for a few hours. Mom's at Winstar with a sister, seeing Chicago in concert. They know they can let their hair down around me. The only one missing was Big D, it's his week with his father. In a way, it was a good thing...the wait staff at Twin Peaks were wearing an "alternate" uniform during St. Patty's Week, I was afraid they all would catch a cold.

    There you go, thinking about the health and well-being of those young ladies.

    26 Zag D boards to OSU's 8 O boards

    I'm glad we won for obvious reasons but buckeyes annoyed me.
    Love the zags for life

    I It was actually a little worried, as it’s always hard to be a good team twice… Especially one that you pounded the first time. Onion State wanted this rematch, and they got it. Seeing how the fellas built a 15–0 lead, only to lose it late due to officiating, threes, missed free throws, and regain it with a killer attitude of their own threes and a sick dunk to cap it off was really special. The fourth Sweet 16 in a row is a bit sweeter!
