Horrible offense by Barrett at the end. Just terrible

I think your consistent point over the years with the Zags has been you believe them to be a good team.... but think their record is inflated due to being in the WCC, and thus they get seeded better than they would have had they been in the Pac 12...

Think everyone would agree with the idea that the WCC (while pretty decent) isn't the Pac 12. 

I also know you've pointed out some of their flame outs in NCAAT play.


Think those are fair points, but that is a damn good team which was on the floor tonight.

This is why you’re the boss. Well said.

There isn’t a conference in the country where the Zags aren’t one of the 3 or 4 best teams in it.

I think deep down you’re sorta happy they won

I’m not upset Duke lost. I think the loss is good for them. The hype surrounding the team is a bit much imo.

Our #4 just fell to unranked (but about to be ranked nationally) Texas.

In a result that shouldn't penalize Tennessee at all, IMO, real nice marquee win by a young Kansas team last night.

Of note this week: UNC at Michigan (Wednesday), maybe Indiana vs. Duke (Tuesday), very unlikely but MD could hang with Virginia on Wednesday. Gonzaga and Creighton next Saturday could be good. Those are the results to watch for next Sunday's new poll IMO.

Michigan is damn good.

FSU needs to come back for the ACC to tie the B10..Mich and NW are going to win, which makes it 7-6 in favor of the B10.

So, it comes down to FSU vs Purdue and it’s likely Purdue is going to win to secure the B10.

Miami and Clemson losing games they should win ends up being the difference.

Well, they actually made a smart play to force and turnover and were able to score the winning basket with 5 seconds left.

Purdue doesn’t score in the last 3:40 or so.

Challenge ends up tied.
