    Not going to be the media favorite...

    We might be the favorite for everyone else though.

    First glance, a LOT of media assume it will be UCONN vs. Kentucky in the 2nd round - as if the game is already over/ or they get a bye. Kind of pisses me off, but I guess that's to be expected when you have a program like UCONN (that shouldn't have even made it) that could get a program like Kentucky. That would be a marquee game.

    **** the media and everyone else for that matter too. Time to get in the kicking *** and taking names mindset.

    With just two victories we could get more recognition for the program that ever before.

    Given history, the 9th seed usually wins.

    Are we ever a media favorite? Nope....

    It's only been a half hour and I am already getting sick of hearing about the Kentuck UConn "3rd round" matchup. That's not going to happen - we will beat UConn.

    Yeah.... the media is already assuming a Kentucky vs. UCONN matchup. Disgusting.

    Re: Not going to be the media favorite...

    Looking at UConn's wins and record, it isn't that impressive. Still not a matchup I want, but if it weren't for the name it wouldn't be so big a deal. The crazy thing is that to get to the Final Four we could face UConn, Kentucky, Indiana, and Duke. Sounds like a final four from the 1990s.

    Re: Not going to be the media favorite...

    I'm OK with our draw. We tend to play to our competition level. We just have to beat UConn, and then you have a chance to shock the world.

    I agree that the hype aroud a possible UConn/Kentucky matchup is already annoying, but you don't really believe that UConn shouldn't be in this year, do you? 9 seeds aren't exactly bubble teams. Just curious who you would put in the tourney in their place.


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Re: Not going to be the media favorite...

    I get paranoid when these sort of things happen. To the point where when the media wants a team to win, then I think sometimes the referees call the games a bit uneven. However, I could just be superstitious.

    Uconn is a joke. Bunch of cheaters that shouldn't be in because of their low APR rating
