Great challenge for us. However, UConn plays final games well. They lost by only three to Syracuse after a big comeback. It will be a good PR situation for Fred and recruiting though. It is a good way to check out Yum Center for future games. The coaching stories for these three teams will be of interest.
CFH HMagic bball season.
Let my fred's Four Horsemen ride.
I liked that rant. Funny references, and he makes a good point: Why not get enthusiastic about the opportunity to knock off UConn AND Kentucky? Especially in a situation where KY is almost guaranteed to be overlooking us.
The only thing I would quibble over is the number of ISU fans with the "sour grapes" attitude about this tourney invite. I would say that the aggrieved fans are definitely a tiny minority, so why call out the whole fanbase over a VERY small portion?
My opinion? We could have gotten a better seed, but ultimately it comes down to beating whoever gets put up against us. It's not as if we got an 8 seed after a 24 win season, right? Sure, I think we COULD have gotten a 7 or God forbid a 6 seed based on our conference record; however, we got what we got. Best thing we can do is win anyway and increase our respect for next season.
I would assume it's in the minority of fans, too. By Selection Show time, I was absolutely certain ISU wasn't getting a 7 -- I was already over the possibility.
Was a pretty good rant. My favorite line was when he turned a familiar sports phrase upside down: "Act like you haven't been there before."
