    True.

    Unfortunately, coaching is a much bigger part.

    I suspect they will be playing Kentucky- Badgers are the best team left in their bracket structure IMO. Kentucky is so big- Awesome win for Wisconsin tonight.

    Hmmm- was trying to reply to Msut10. Not sure what I did wrong there. Wanted to quote his post.

    Naw, you don't.

    Hope for Kentucky. They're big- but they're stupid, not coached, and they're inexperienced.

    But but but... they made it to the Sweet 16!


    Martin's situation reminds me of many coaches that ended up lucky because of a playoff win or 2.

    HE isn't a bad coach, but he has awful assistants. His picking.

    I meant it more as living in Wisconsin I know quite a few people from Michigan and it would be a fun time getting together for the game.

    I'll beat the horde of members that'll run here to be like "hurr hurr! Your team lost!" (while their team wasn't even in the Elite 8... or my team beat theirs 2 nights ago)

    I'll say this: Was it terribly officiated? Yes. I've never seen a team get away with more travels, hacking, basket interference, etc. Michigan might as well have been playing the Miami Heat. Making Levert's 3 count as 2 was huge.

    BUT... It was a great game. Kentucky hit more 3's (or close to) than Michigan, and no one could have ever dreamed that possibility. They made huge shots... so they won. Knew they'd have their way inside, but never expected them to shoot well.

    In the end, I never expected UM to be in the Elite 8 once McGary went down. So overall, I'm happy and proud of my tea m. Just wish they would have lost to a better team. I think losing to UT would be easier to swallow than the slimy Calipari and his Slop-Squad. But it's March. Madness happens.

    At least Michigan State lost today, too. Uconn or Wisconsin should have this in the bag.




    Being in the Elite 8 was surprising. I'll take it.
