    Not sure how his statement was preposterous. Everyone had already penciled in UConn to face Kentucky like we had no shot at beating them.

    Didn't Vegas and nearly all sport talking heads pick UCONN for the win?

    Yeah, this. Everyone was talking up the big UConn\UK matchup like there was no way anything else was happening.

    If I remember correctly Dick Vitale said UCONN would advance "easily" and face Kentucky in the next round.

    Re: CFH in the Preposterous Statement Tourney

    This guy called it preposterous because we were the higher seed. He obviously didn't do his homework because everybody said we were gonna lose.

    Re: CFH in the Preposterous Statement Tourney

    It's preposterous because it's true? Yes, we were a higher seed, but nobody gave us a chance. On the selection show they even mentioned the Uconn Kentucky matchup like it was a given, and didn't even entertain the idea that Uconn had to play us first, much less beat us.

    Pssst. Hey, 78; not a good example. Everybody knows Dookie V. is an idiot.

    Why can't someone just put the statement in this thread?

    Would be interesting to find the Vegas line for the game and send it to this guy...

    Two things.

    1. Apparently I'm the only one who can't get the link to work. I get the K-Fan website banner with a mostly blank page.

    2. Didn't the guy a bunch of posters love to hate say that it wasn't a slam dunk that UConn would get out of the ISU game alive when his show mates were already talking about a UConn Kentucky matchup?

    You know the guy; wears his shorts backwards and picks fights with Marcus Fizer.


    EDIT: Maybe I'm not the only one...looks like possibly Farnsworth may be having trouble as well.

    Yes, I get the same thing. It has to do with plugins not agreeing with our crappy IE browser at work.

    Note: Iowa St. was #8 seed in NCAA tourney, UCONN was #9 seed.
