Hmmm...two teams I dislike. Can they both lose?


I wouldn't be opposed to UNC winning the game and them immediately getting stripped of it because of academic fraud. But I guess I'll take a Zags win as well.

Don't really care --been an entirely forgettable season (on the court) for Illini fans.

Anybody outside of Chapel Hill should be rooting for the Zags. Any Illini fan should root against UNC by principle. :p

A 37-1 team with their only loss in the final regular season game makes it through to the finals to play UNC. Hopefully Karnowski can play more than 9 minutes.
Let's see if they do to Karnowski what they did to Augustine.

I've always had a soft spot for Gonzaga and Mark Few. And UNC in the title game reminds me of that Monday night in April 2005. And, I really can't stand ol' Roy. Guess who I'm rooting for? Yet I'm fully expecting UNC to win. After losing last year to Nova, they're determined.

Actually, I think I'm going to root for NC. The idea of them winning a national championship while they have a texbook* case of fraud and cheating hanging out there is kind of hilarious. I really dislike how the NCAA schools put money ahead of integrity, but this one would at least give me a laugh.

This headline is just too appealing: "North Carolina caught cheating for decades; wins National Championship Again"


*pardon the pun. It was the first word that came to mind.

I got UNC in a blind pick em pool and will win an additional $100 if they win tonight. I'm still rooting against UNC.

Pulling for Gonzaga all the way. Greatly admire Mark Few, and both of my daughters graduated from West Coast Conference schools.

I'm in two pools. If Gonzaga wins, I win both pools.

One's for money. The other's for a travelling trophy. I'm actually more excited about the possibility of winning the trophy.

AMEN brother... it may have just been me, but when UNC was behind early in the game on Saturday, it appeared they received some beneficial calls...LOL

I have 2 nephews who are big UNC fans, even though their mother is a UIUC grad.

I'm pulling for the Zags...

The fact that deputy dog is playing for the national title year after year is proof to me there is NO justice in college bball. They should have received the death penalty for their academic scams.

And oddly CBS hasn't said a word about their academic difficulties. They're laying an awful lot of basketball love on Roy and Co. though. Terrible.

Weak offensive performances on both sides so far, but an entertaining basketball game nonetheless!

Big guy makes a couple bunnies and Zags make FT's and I think they are up nearly 10.
