Maybe, but I seem to remember we've done well against Kentucky in the past.

Ugly? It couldn't be any better of a first round match up. Without Patterson there, this is a GREAT match up for MU. Especially in Anaheim.

Stanford in the 2nd round though....uh oh.

I tell you what, it will get ugly if we go in there and shoot our traditional 35% for the first half.  With that said, it should be fun watching these guys run up and down the court.

South region, Anaheim games.  Love the Kentucky matchup.

Anybody going?  Scoring tickets might be tough with UCLA playing on Thursday as well.

please explain, they have just as spaz of a coach then us (he just told his player to SWAT a FT, WHAT!)  two guards that are good, no where near like ours, and their bigs our hurt... how is this ugly... could you imagine if Kansas St was the 11 seed we were playing.

Marquette will crush Kentucky. Stanford will be tough, a team with real big men is really going to hit them hard. But as I always say, they shoot between 45 and 50 percent. They can beat just about anyone.

All I got to say is if we make it past Kentucky and have to play Stanford we are going to have to breakout some kind of full court press. We're going to have to make that game as much as a track meet as possible. Get those 7 footers moving and tired. Attack them and get em' some foul trouble as well.

Isn't Stanford a lot like Notre Dame? But let's worry about Kentucky first.

Has Crean got the nads to show UK what they missed out on by not hiring him? A little revenge, maybe?

Conspiracy:

Selection commitee knows Crean is married to Joani Harbaugh, and set us up with a potential date with Stanford and head football coach Jim Harbaugh...

Can everyone PLEASE stop talking about Stanford!  I would love to beat UK...after all the garbage with Crean going to UK and the trash talking from their fans about our program, coach, etc....it would be a very sweet win.

I'm going! Already got tix confirm from mu.  Second year in a row playing at venue nearest me.  Ucla will probably get the primerime slot, so I expect our pods to be day games(along with the Stanford game.

Jay Bilas just said that Marquette would be a very difficult matchup for Stanford.  The fast pace and talented guards and lots of ball pressure has given Stanford trouble this year.  Then Bobby Knight said that Stanford's size might give MU trouble if they can get the ball inside.  Stanford has had some trouble taking care of the ball this year.

I like the setup.  Kentucky's RPI is around 54.  They just barely got in to the tourney, so they are probably comparable to Villanova.

And they are absolutley right. Yes Stanford has two big guys, but I think people sometimes forget that they have to play us as well. We do have playesr who bring a little something to the party.
