    Default E8: Who Do We Want? Do We Care?

    Yes, for now I am just thrilled about survive and advance.

    Right now, I am hoping for a 3 OT thriller, 43-42 with 92 fouls called in the game.

    But do we prefer one team or the other?

    Don't care, Gonzaga is better than both and beats both if they play well.

    Don't care either, same style no matter who we play. We need to continue to go out and take what's ours. #gozags

    This was my basement for this team, so yeah I’m happy they got here! But as Michael Jordan once said “The Roof is the Ceiling!!!”

    I'm not too familiar with Texas Tech. But as good as Michigan's defense is, and as good as their W/L record is, they are extremely frustrating to watch on the offensive end. Scoring droughts galore! Something I think Gonzaga will exploit with their underrated defense.

    I think Texas Tech might be a slightly tougher matchup - they've got a kid in Culver who can really score. And Michigan wasn't playing as well towards the end of the year. That said, Michigan has so much experience from last year. Earlier on CBS Gary Parrish called Texas Tech-Michigan a coin toss, and I think that's how I feel about who we face - whoever we face will have elite defense and be tough to beat.

    We certainly saw some scoring droughts tonight.

    It's like the hockey defense bracket.

    Yes, I think it's probably more important than either team gets worn down tonight - we likely are, much more than who in particular we face.

    So bring on the OTs

    Did my old eyes deceive me tonight? Did I read correctly on the chyron that the Zags have only lost once in the last 248 games with a lead of 11points or more after the first half? That is a remarkable number.

    If Michigan wins, it'll be an extremely hard game for me to watch. I'm from Michigan (a Michigan grad as well) but I've rooted SO HARD for Gonzaga for the last 20 years and part of that reason was because Michigan's basketball program didn't give me much to cheer for during that time span.

    I'm thrilled that the program has turned it around during Beilein's tenure.

    Go Blue, and Go Zags!

    Yeah, and the one game we lost left a hole in my heart until March 2017, when we beat Xavier to make the Final Four.

    Don’t care. Both tough teams.

    Expect another rock fight.

    I think today's FSU would have beat both TT and Michigan from the first 5 minutes of this game. If we play to our averages we win either way.

    I think NCAA considers yellow and white home colors

    Don’t know who would be best for us to play. But I’m in the arena, and there are way more Michigan fans. We’d have the fan advantage if TT won. But not sure if we’d have it with Michigan. And I have TT in my best bracket, so I’m rooting for them.

    Based on the TT/UM game thus far I think if we can score 50 points we'll be all right /sarc

    but it's not as bad as when we played Wyoming in 2002. I couldn't tell their cream jerseys from our white jerseys.

    I don't know about easy, but right now the only team that I can see beating Gonzaga on Saturday is Gonzaga.
