Gators are an enigma..but they sure can play defense...If they’d won the SEC..they might have been a #2 seed..maybe now they’ll be pissed..and focused..

I don’t know, they’ve blown so many leads this year, and of course in the last two tournaments....If they haven’t figured it out by now, they never will.

Boynton is the X-Factor, he’s disappeared so many times late in games, though.

But he also scored, what..14 points in 5 minutes, along with a bunch of steals, in the semi-final win..

That’s just it, he’s hot and cold, no consistency. Can’t win a tournament with that.

I think their seed would have been the same, regardless of what happened yesterday. And actually it’s a fairly favorable bracket.

The good news is that if they make it to the Sweet Sixteen, I’ll be able to go watch them, since the regional finals are here.

“Louisville better hope they don’t have a night where the officials call the game tighter than normal. UL fouls more than any team in the NCAA with their press, they just don’t get called for it. One game with things called right and they will be in trouble.”

Only VCU fouls more than UL. They both foul on every possession and get away with half of them. It is a good strategy, as most ref crews try to even out the number of fouls called, and do. If they run into a crew that calls them as they see them, they can be in trouble.

Just finished my brackets..going for a long shot this year..New Mexico Lobos..to win it ALL. I actually think that NONE of the #1 seeds will make the final four..

We loved Willie—because he was one of us—but as far as play calling is concerned—you’ll soon find out why we called him “WTF Wille”. LOL

Thad Motta's a good coach.

I can't see Mark Few leaving Gonzaga. He saw the wringer Dan Monson went through when he left GU for Minnesota.

i don’t understand how Indiana and Kansas gets a #1 seed in the South and East regions. Memphis sports a 30-4 record which is better than them. Same for Louisville. Memphis has a better record than them, too. The Tigers should have gotten at least one of those #1’s instead of the 6 seed in the Midwest. Memphis has the second best record in the field. Guess that don’t count for much.

Yeah, Monson made a blunder leaving so quickly to go to Minnesota. If he would have stuck around several more years better opportunities would have come up for him.

If Few was going to leave he would have already done it. I can’t imagine that there is anything out there that would challenge him more than getting the Zags to a Final Four and maybe a championship.

Truly sorry about the loss to McNeese. Now you know why we called Willie T—WTF Willie.

That wasn't a loss..that was a complete total beat down..all of Tampa..students fans, the paper, and BOTH sports talk stations are absolutely stunned..and especially after the opening play for USF....

sense here though is that this is Skip Holtz' fault...Willie has no bodies to play...

We were all hoping Willie T would do well at South FL, but have all speculated he would be a “short termer”—because you all wouldn’t tolerate it like we did (we cut him slack because he was a WKU grad).

Are they all calling for his head? I don’t know where the best USF message board is to check.

We’re really happy with Bobby Petrino tho. LOL

Actually, the overall consensus at his hiring was very positive, for the following reasons:

1.The feel good story about the local guy returning home
2. The not unreasonable expectation that he'd be able to tap into the incredible talent pool here in Florida..especially Hillsborough County.
3. This is the best one. Most felt that he'd have the program turned around, and winning, in 2-3 years, and that because of his local roots, he wouldn't then jump to a better job.

Everyone is very hopeful Willie T works out for you. He’s still loved here. We were all very patient with him (time management, teaching slapping at players not arm wrap-a-round tackling, hard-headed on position assignments, some crazy play calling)—but the speculation is you all won’t be as patient because you’re down in “football is god” territory.

He does come from good stock—from the Harbaugh camp. And Jack Harbaugh brought WKU a Division 1AA national championship in 2002. I also remember when we had a home and home series with the Bulls when you all first started football (not to mention you all used to be in the Sun Belt for basketball years ago). So we all wish him and USF well.

Willie is a very good recruiter...still needs coaching/ management maturity. That’s pretty much the consensus around these parts.
