    Twister Sister Summary - best thing just happened

    State is a 5 seed playing Gonzaga in the first round. Georgia in the second round and the weakest 1 in Stanford in the Elite 8. To me this is the best possible route we could ask for. Thoughts? More to come...

    Jane Appel is enough to make me never want to see Stanford ever again.

    They are by far the weakest 1 seed it the field.

    And yet they're the only team to beat Baylor in the last two years.

    Re: Twister Sister Summary - best thing just happened

    Forget about Stanford, or Georgia - let's worry about the first game. We've been one and done lately (Marist, Green Bay) and now we play Gonzaga in front of their home fans. Would rather play another #12...and somewhere else.

    As I said in the other thread, the NCAA needs to clean this up. Lower seeded teams should not be home court sites.

    Re: Twister Sister Summary - best thing just happened

    The Gonzaga men's team plays on Thursday, and so would play their 1-8 or 1-9 game on Saturday as well. This could dampen turnout for this and help to neutralize their home court advantage

    It's not changing any time soon, for reasons I'm sure you're well aware of.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Twister Sister Summary - best thing just happened

    Ugh. My exact thoughts on the whole Gonzaga thing. Could prove to be a harder game then the #4 vs Georgia. If we we were going to be a 4 or 5 for sure though, then this is about as good as we can ask.

    Re: Twister Sister Summary - best thing just happened

    Stanford talk needs to be stopped We have to get out of Spokane first. I believe we have played as a lower seed at home at least 2 times and maybe even 3 times. We have no right to ***** when it goes the other way.

    Yeah, considering it wasn't that long ago they changed it to this, it probably isn't going anywhere.

    I don't like it either way.

    Re: Twister Sister Summary - best thing just happened

    The teams are alright, it is the location that is bad. This team seems to play well on the road, at least it doesn't faze them. I am more concerned that they are ready to play, and they match up well. I am not going to talk about the kinds of teams that give us trouble, but we all know what they are. Go Cyclones.

    Dang are any of us playing? Don't think any of us looking ahead will affect the team. That said, I would love the chance for the team to get to play against Greenfield. I'd put a victory against her comparable to those sweeps the first two years against Hinrich.

    More like having Stanford end our season yet AGAIN.

    Georgia has eliminated us twice from the NCAAs, hope we can get past the first game and maybe return the favor. Still remember them jumping out to a 20-2 lead on us in Minneapolis. It's was a pretty stunning lost, not that we lost but that we were simply crushed with game over so quickly.
