    Poor Drake....

    Wow......what an awful way to lose and end a storybook season.

    I imagine that Drake fans are going what we went through in 2001 right about now.

    ISU was a better team in 2001, and would probably have won the national championship, so not exactly the same thing.

    I don't know... I think the ISU 2001 loss was much worse IMO.

    Re: Poor Drake....

    If Drake would not have been settling for 3's within 10 seconds of the shot clock throughout the second half, they could have won in regulation by about 12-15 with the way WKU was turning the ball over, mostly unforced.

    I think he is talking about the early exit to Hampton and not the loss to MSU the year prior.

    Re: Poor Drake....

    What a great shot! When Drake looks back to this game, it will be their inability to get a stop and all the missed lay ups they had

    I am 4-0 today, so that makes me feel better!!!!

    Re: Poor Drake....

    I don't feel too sorry for them. They had a nice season and were the talk of their city/state for a few months. All good things come to an end eventually. That's rough to lose like they did but that's the beauty of March Madness.

    I'm talking about the "shock" factor brianhos. Not comparing the talent level of the two teams at all.

    Re: Poor Drake....

    Drake played their hearts out, and it sucks they lost, but WKU also played their hearts out. Neither team was more deserving than the other. Great game.

    Drake doesn't settle for the 3...that's their game. They simply didn't shoot them well in the first half - that and the lights-out shooting by WKU were the difference today.

    Sorry yeah, that was 2000 wasn't it. It was too long ago, and I am old now.

    What, being one of 5 #2 seeds in the history of the tournament to lose??? Is that what he was talking about?

    Not sure why anyone would be shocked that Drake lost. That W Kentucky team matched up very well with Drake. It is amazing to me how local media influences people. Everyone seems to have thought this was going to win it all for some reason.

    WKU helped to invent the whole Cinderella thing. They're always tough when they get in the dance.
