    For the love of God UCONN please beat MSU. If 3 Big Ten teams reach the Final Four, Chokeye fans will never shut up about it..despite Iowa losing in the playin game.

    Your post is based on the false premise that Chokeye fans will ever shut up . . . period.

    For instance, I'm expecting to hear some say that they wouldn't have lost to Michigan like Tennessee did . . . which is ridiculous because they would have folded without the bad call by the refs.

    Good luck Sunday and beyond, was a fun game to watch tonight.
    Shouldn't it be 3 of last 5 because of the team that shall not be named?

    Sorry, I don't see UConn shooting lights out.
    Rather us "shooting ourselves" in the foot!
    (and that wasn't a pun towards Georges)

    Next year I expect Elite-8 without an issue.

    Can never expect Elite 8 without an issue. Too many things can happen.
    We'll be good enough to make it, but plenty of teams are good enough to get there. Actually doing it is extremely difficult.

    It would take fewer posts to explain how you did not ruin this tournament for us.

    Right, but it's still a tough thing to expect. A lot of things have to happen.
    I fully believe that next year's team can do it.

    I have a lot of respect for UConn, hope you win it all. Shabazz is a beast and fun to watch play. Congrats on today!

The stars aligned with him injured and MSG being the venue. I don't think it is an excuse, but even though we'll never know, the Big 12 champ was a team I saw that could handle a team beaten by SMU twice and Louisville 3 times.

    I am a big fan of Cyclone hoops, the mayor and of course, dating myself, Jeff Hornacek.

    Root for us to beat the Spartans as our programs, basketball and football have a lot in common.

    Congrats on a great season.
    Good stuff and I agree that with Niang we likely win that game. He would have pulled your shot blocker out of the paint and onto the perimeter. Melvin and DeAndre wouldn't have missed so many bunnies due to him guarding the rim. Oh well that's just how it works sometime.

    Congrats on the Final 4, I'm rooting for you guys.
