    Who cares? So he picked an upset and it happened to be against us. I picked some upsets in my bracket too. We sound whinier than Pitino

    Re: Gottlieb

    On CBSsports.com, he picked us to win.

    I wouldn't get too worked up about this, or anything Gottlieb has to say.

    Re: Gottlieb

    I think it was Sunday during the selection show and he was on with the rest of the crew that he just wouldn't stop talking. It was so annoying that even my wife who really wasn't paying much attention to the tv noticed it. He's like the little brother that is dying for attention and will go to any length to get it, i.e. picking against ISU in the first round when basically everyone else has them making a deep run.

    Re: Gottlieb

    I really don't get too worked up when the "talking heads" pick against us. I am fairly indifferent toward Doug G. However, there was one time I REALLY liked him: semifinal game of the 2000 Big XII tourney. We were down 4 somewhat late in the game & Stevie Johnson, I believe, took it to the hole, made the basket and was fouled by - guess who? We were on our heels prior to that "and 1" opportunity. That play jacked up the ISU crowd. Thanks Douggie!

    Re: Gottlieb

    So our elite offense (kenpom AdjO rank 16) vs their good defense (kenpom AdjD rank 59). And their mediocre offense (kenpom AdjO rank 115) vs our similarly good defense (kenpom AdjD rank 54).

    Couple that with the fact that we played a lot of good teams with a pulse, and I feel pretty good about our chances. Still need to show up and play the game though.

    Re: Gottlieb

    I have never understood why fans get so worked up about an analyst. "Either you love my team or you hate it!!"

    He thinks NCC has a shot to win. Big deal. There are more who think we have a shot at Elite 8 or Final 4. So those analysts hate all those teams?

    He didn't bash us. Just says we are playing a solid team. There are many things to get worked up about in life. One dudes bracket isn't one of them.

    Re: Gottlieb

    I agree with his assessment that if the game is called tight it could benefit NC Cental. They really attack the basket with dribble drives. Ingram and Chapman are quick and shifty. It will be tough for our guards to stay in front of the ball.

    On the other hand, we can also create the same foul problems for them by attacking the basket. DeAndre (6-4 200) is going to have a physical advantage against both Ingram (6-3 175) and Chapman (6-1 160). Georges should also be a handful for their bigs.

    Re: Gottlieb

    If the refs call it tight on NCCU, they'll commit 40 fouls. They're like KSU in that regard. I hate to think of it this way, but this game is heavily dependent on how it is reffed. When they beat NC State they fouled out 4 of NC State's 5 starters and shot 45 free throws. NCCU scores more of their points off of FTs than any team in tournament other than Kentucky and they give up more points off of free throws than any team in the tournament other than Manhattan. That's the thing that scares me about this game.

    I get the healthy MSU love, but it does seem a bit much. The onlly bracket I filled out I picked UVA to beat MSU just because. Appling is not very inconsistent.
