    Dark Horse

    This team is a scary matchup in the Dance. Opponents that have never seen us play have very limited time to prepare for a team that leads the country in 3 point shooting. If we get hot during what could be called a down year for the tourney, it is wide open and dark horses we will be.

    If we win our first game, I would not want to prepare for us on 1 days' notice.
    I wouldn't want to with a week, much less 1 day.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Dark Horse

    We'll go as far as our 3's will take us (assuming we dance). If we're off in round 1, it could be an early exit with a neutral game. If we're hot that first weekend, we'll probably make it to the Sweet 16.

    I love our optimism after a win. If we finish strong and manage higher than an 8 seed I'll believe.

    Re: Dark Horse

    Win one road game and we are dark horses for the elite eight. Lose one game and the season is over. My goodness we are fickle.

    Because of your picture, I imagined Dwight saying that. I thank you.

    Re: Dark Horse

    We're 2-2 at neutral sites, with the two wins coming against much inferior opponents. Granted that was before we were really a cohesive team.

    2-1 I believe. We played UNLV on their court during that tournament.

    I just hope we don't play against eventual champion early. Last 3 out of 4 tourneys that we played, we ended up facing eventual champions, and that's just suck!

    How would we play against ourselves? That doesn't make sense.
