Muggsy - I think we might be the only ones here who thinks that’s a good idea.  No one is saying add the mid range game by subtracting something else.

Yes.  And the fact that SDSU shot 37% isn't relevant at all.  What did they shoot from 3?  What shots did they make with the gane on the line and 5 mins to?  No one is saying take the shot in lieu of threes, it's about understanding what a better percentage shot is.  Especially when you have to execute.

I hope Miami beats Texas for a few reasons:

1.it would be fun to see the Big 12 excluded from the F4.

2. Texas going to the F4 would just add more fuel to the Shaka haters. I can hear them saying “Texas had to get rid of Smart to have NCAA success”.

3. I don’t like Texas.
I don’t like Texas either but I need them to win, then beat UConn, then lose in the final to win my bracket.

After Creighton tied it. Maybe should have had a man on the ball with a foul still to give, since they just got a turnover. Mood point now. Focus will be on should the foul have been called or not.

Stink for the Big East. Hopefully for two teams in the Final Four. Glad to lose to the MWC.

Muggsy must be rooting for Texas.

Is there any significance to the fact that Texas has 6 seniors in their rotation, most of whom are in their 5th year and on their second or third program. It might be that having experienced players helps teams advance.

Maybe UT pays their BB players as well as they pay their offensive linemen.

Would this be the 1st time 2 mid-majors make the final 4?

Is the MWC really a mid major? Non power league, sure. IMO, mid majors normally are one bid league.

Marquette got knocked out on that exact shot against Stanford, but it counted then.

SDSU shot 37%

But they probably would have shot 20% if they didn’t make their tough twos and Creighton wouldn’t have even been in the game I’m the second half if they didn’t hit some tough twos.

We all know it’s not a great shot but with rim protectors and great three point D you sometimes don’t have a choice.

He saw you had stuck your fork in SDSU and was already thinking about the FAU scout.

Cool?

You could probably do that for hundreds of college basketball players.

If Baylor Scheierman transferred to Baylor his jersey would’ve had his full name on it. How interesting!

Ooh, I like that one. Thanks!

But you’re right… much better to concentrate on multiple pages of “crapshoot or not.”

Eh. Shaka’s better off where he is. Texas appears to be too. And the Big 12 is great. I have nothing against them. The only difference between them and the Big East is the bottom of their conference is much stronger than the Big East’s.

I have much more dislike for the ACC, B1G, and Big 12 for poaching teams and breaking up conferences. But money talks.

I enjoy watching this Texas team. And I don’t hate the idea of a wife beater sitting at home thinking “what if I hadn’t beaten my fiancé?” Then again, he also gets to think, “at least I gave my fiancé 3.25M reasons a year to drop the charges.”
