Oh how I love the schadenfreude!

I mean, Minnesota has been beast mode at home this year, true. But at some point, you're the #5 team in the country and obliterated them last time... Have some faith.

I have faith in any B1G home team if the refs get involved.

Wow. This has become Trotters/Generals.
One of my favorite pieces of wikipedia writing is the Trotters bit about the one time they lost a game to the Generals.

"While the Globetrotters were entertaining the crowd that day, they lost track of the game and the score. They found themselves down 12 points with two minutes left to go. Forced to play normal basketball, the Globetrotters rallied but could not recover."

Cardboard cutouts are going to be leaving soon.
If they have any self respect left, they will flee. And with paper bags over their cardboard heads to preserve both their anonymity and deniability that they were ever present for this beat down.

I hope you're being sarcastic. I have to believe you are, though my sarcasm meter is off from time to time.
Wake '04 and Minny '21. Let's compare the fandem FUN in the two victories:

- Ranked in Top 5 both games
- Favored by ~5 pts both games
- Shooting 60%+ both games
- Leading in the 2nd half by 30-35 pts both games
- Shooting 60%+ from 3 both games
- Leaving the court as a Final 4 favorite both games
- Defeating a Quad 1 opponent both games

Yeah - Wake and CP3 were admittedly better.

Kofi has developed elite ability at rolling low and muffed passes up into a dunk. Unreal this guy.

Most guys we would at best occasionally be talking about big guy hands and needing better passes. Not second-year Kofi.
