    In the realm of common opponents, they went 1-1 vs SMU. UCONN won at home , and then got blown out on the road.

    That's what I was thinking. Ucon got hot in their tourney. Then we have to play th overall 1 if we win.

    Getting Brimah into foul trouble is probably the key.

    Very interesting to read their board. Worth a look. They think PAC was overhyped, very concerned about Kansas. Apparently the big boy for them gets a little flat footed per going out to guard somebody like Josh who can face and shoot. Very little awareness of our depth. Probably pretty accurate per our guard rotation. Their guards streaky shooters, I have not seem them play so gonna do some homework.

    Do we have a game day and time yet ... I'm somewhere where I can't watch it (from the sound of it though with the new CBS format I'm not missing much).

    No one in the east understands the Pac hype. Everyone was caught completely off guard by Oregon grabbing the 1. Hadn't remotely considered it. Only the diehards know we're a league with 11 top 100 teams. To everyone else we're an invisible conference that had Arizona down and a couple teams making forays into the top 25

    Hoping for some burnout. They've been on an exhausting ride. 4OT game just to get in (the wisdom at the time). They've been running on adrenaline

    Cville, what are the UConn strengths? Frontline? Backcourt? Even Steven?

    What kind of Tempo with these guys? Obviously program has big and successful Tourney history.

    Have an "expert" who will have a good matchup perspective, have not reached him yet, back with that.

    I'll post more details when I get the chance, but UConn absolutely wants to ride their backcourt. Very athletic guards and good depth

    Any chance CU athletic department will be organized enough to put together a bus/hotel/ticket package from Boulder? Would be tempted to go if the bus had WIFI. Likely wishful thinking on my part.

    Kevin Ollie: 6-0 in NCAA Tournament, 4-0 as lower seed. All from 2014 when UConn won the national title as a 7 seed

    Give me a break. Do we have to complain about EVERYTHING as a fan base?

    I'm not taking the time as a slight, would just rather watch it a bar as opposed to my work computer. Settle down, bitch.

    I always take off that Thursday and Friday so it's not an issue. Best two sports days of the year.
