I have not seen Tech play yet … Given how much trouble MSU had with our defense, are there thoughts that MSU will have trouble with Tech's defense (have heard their D is very good, but I don't know its style …)
Given the number of bunnies that MSU missed 'cuz they say Zion's shadow, I'd think MSU will match very well with Virginia, if MSU gets there … I haven't seen Tech play and have heard their D is really aggressive, so I'm wondering whether MSU matches up better with Virginia than Tech ….
The worst part is that Duke nearly lost to two other teams before falling to MSU - I expected this to be a tough ride for Duke - either way. Why would someone cry for a team like that? With all due respect, Duke had one great player, etc (as part of THIS tourney), and yet they nearly lost TWO games and lost one.
That Purdue virgina game was gold. Duke’s game play came no where close to that, all tourney long. No one to blame but themselves. Plus MSU makes teams like sloppy and disrupted. MSU earned their spot, as did the other teams. Duke did not.
I really hope not for two reasons. (1) If I can't have my championship then I sure don't want them to have one. It's a completely a**hole opinion, but there, I said it. (2) One of my degrees (the one not from Illinois) was earned at Texas A&M, which naturally breeds some contempt for Texas Tech.
The four elite eight games were all fantastic! This weekend was generally pretty good, and really made up for a fairly blowout-heavy first weekend. Looking forward to the final four — and, I can't resist bragging that I totally called it.
