This is one residual of the transfer portal and one-and-done’s. Not complaining at all, but predictability has gone the way of the Do-Do.

But every UConn fan I’ve ever known is a complete tool. We get it: they play great basketball in the Nutmeg State. What is this inferiority complex all of them seem to have? :dontgetit
Lighten up, my friend. You want to roll your eyes when I brought up how well they were playing, you open yourself up to some ribbing about it. It’s all in fun.

Three months ago and before they lost six of eight. I pointed out the flaws, the conference exposed them, they adapted.

Which means when they win tomorrow night, I’m right twice. :twisted:

Are we still friends? :lol:

I was referring to this thread, yesterday

If they win tomorrow night, I’ll only be more insufferable, so be prepared

Who would have guessed two weeks ago that one quarter of the Elite Eight would be from SE Florida?

And it should be noted that all the regions of the continental US are covered:

NW: Gonzaga
SW: SD State
South-Central: Texas
North-Central: Creighton/K-State
SE: Miami/FAU
NE: UConn

No B1G schools. No SEC schools. No Pac-12 schools. CUSA has more schools than those three leagues combined. :lol:

Miami is your last ACC school standing. Let me repeat that Miami is the last ACC school standing.

The supposedly over-rated Big XII has two schools along with the Big East. Of course, the Horns are headed to the SEC in the not too distant future and Gonzaga is expected to come replace them. But that has yet to occur.

Just musings bouncing around my head this morning,

I never heard anyone claiming the Big XII was overrated. All year they’ve been consistently acknowledged as the best conference in the Country.
There really isn’t a Blue Blood (maybe UCONN) Left which is awesome
Texas has something to prove and I can’t believe they haven’t removed the Interim tag from their coach
Tonight’s UCONN Gonzaga game is the National Championship game….although Texas looks good

It’s been generally accepted for the last few years the Big XII has been on top.

I don’t k ow anyone who was saying big 12 was overrated. Let’s not start being like UConn fans, begging for compliments when none are needed and fabricating biases where none exist. :lol:

The Big Ten on the other hand…yeesh! Every year they prove they’re just overrated. I had high hopes this year. But there’s always this nagging thought in the back recesses of my vast deeply knowledgeable brain, saying, “Yeah, but it’s the freaking Big Ten!”

I thin UCONN, Texas, K-State and Gonzaga all have looked like championship level squads. And UCONN isn’t a blue blood, that’s why we have an inferiority complex.

If Gonzaga comes to the Big XII, they’ll learn real quick what being in a true power conference is like. Really smart dude in Morgantown said as much preseason when those rumors started.

UCONN did a fantastic job taking Gonzaga out of their game. I was unaware of the dearth of shooter Gonzaga had. Again as proficient as the Zags are on offense they need to do something about their defense. Every year they just struggle with that.
UCONN is hot right now. I’m not sure if Texas can stop them. I do think SDSU matches up well with them but they gotta get there first

What a beatdown.

I’m not sure what was going on with Timme tonight, but he was a mess and the Zags really don’t have much to fall back on if his head’s not in the game. Just seems like they gave up mentally as soon as the second half started. My only thought is putting him on Jackson on defense was a bad choice, but even on offense he wasn’t sharp, two travels in the first 5 minutes, missed easy catches and shots he usually makes.

Creighton has the Defense and jump shooters Gonzaga needed.
SDSU is the only team that can match up physically with UCONN
A Miami - FAU final would be hilarious
