    Re: North Carolina Central

    I'm more nervous for this game than I am about a potential game with UNC or Providence.

    I'm nervous for all of them all the time, but I think these guys are too smart and determined to overlook anyone. And Fred is 4 for 4 in getting his guys ready for tournament games (Kentucky was ridiculously talented and hot).

    Oh my gosh folks yes it was a joke. I do not think nccu is racist. I guess I should have know someone would be stupid enough to take that comment seriously and should have added a pirate face.

    All those schools, that close to each other in North Carolina just blows my mind. It'd be like Iowa St, Iowa, Nebraska, and UNI all within 20 miles of each other. Sports program wise, not in terms of enrollment.

    Re: North Carolina Central

    There are far too many upsets every year for anyone to be too comfortable. Per USA Today,

    Since the NCAA tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985, seven No. 15 seeds have beaten No. 2 seeds; it's happened three times in the past two years. Seventeen 14s have beaten 3s, including a most unlikely underdog — Harvard — taking out New Mexico last March.

    Upsets happen every year. I just hope we aren't going to be one of them.

    NCC has very good guards and that is very important in the NCAA tournament. They have proven that they know how to close out games by winning 20 in a row. Even though their strength of schedule may be less then others, it is impressive that they have that type of streak through the grind of a conference season. That shows me that their players know how to win and that they have the confidence to overcome adversity. They will be a dangerous team.

    We have excellent guard play as well. I think we will pose challenges for them with our front court. I love our team, but there are no second chances going forward. I just hope we can bring our A game into the tournament, and see how far it can take us.

    Why would I waste my time being worried anymore. This team has proven me wrong time and time again. March to Dallas. Cut them down. It starts Friday at 9 pm. NCCU must be destroyed.

    You think he could jump over the morning news paper? I heard rumors he might not be able to.

    Vertical of a poptart laying flat on a plate is what the rumor was.

    Re: North Carolina Central

    So we're coming off a four game winning streak over Okie St, Kansas St, Kansas and Baylor, have barely cleared space for our newest hardware, and people are wetting themselves over a 14-seed from the MEAC? Sounds about right for this place.

    Re: North Carolina Central

    Overall, my thoughts are simple:

    The field must be destroyed.
    NCCU is part of that field.
    So, nothing personal, just business: NCCU must be destroyed.


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

    Right?! As a fanbase, I think we often give TOO much credit to our opponents. This is a damned good team, and we've got a trophy and a seeding to prove it. I'm not worried about a 14 seed. The only teams I'm worried about in our region are Michigan State and North Carolina.

    It's cautious excitement. Most of us can recognize a possible kick in the balls when we see one. The national championship and final 4 threads will start up once again after we probably win this game.
