    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    Things going to seed make for nice looking matchups. VCU-Mich, Memphis-MSU, CSU-Louisville, Butler-Marquette are must watches in my book. This first Saturday and Sunday are the best days of the tourney.

    The bold are the teams I need to win that somehow survived the first round so I can have a salvageable bracket. However, I would love to see upsets rule the day.

    I really need VCU to win, otherwise I would declare my bracket completely out of the running in my pool

    I have Louisville, Gonzaga, Syracuse, and Michigan State in my elite 8. Cannot have them lose or else bracket = dead.

    Michigan taking VCU apart right now. Kind of proves my point that if you have the ability to attack a press, you can get a ton of easy buckets.

    VCU's press works a lot better when they're facing a team whose starting pg is in jail and two other starters are out with the flu than it does against Trey Burke

    That seems like a fairly narrow set of circumstances to game plan around...lol

    Re: ***Official Saturday Madness****

    VCU is my favorite non Iowa State team. So I've watched them when able this year. Their press is good but their shooting is suspect. I wouldn't have picked them to beat akron had their pg not been out.

    VCU is a really good team this year, but not elite.

    Re: ***Official Saturday Madness****

    Dang I was rooting pretty hard for VCU.. they are getting torn apart. Tv commentators said Michigan has been preparing to beat the press all season long. Couple that with ******* auburn hills and VCU got a tough draw.

    VCU seems to run very hot and cold. Michigan brought a freezer to this game for them, and they can't escape it.


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

    Michigan has missed a lot of open 3's too, this could be worse
