We may match up well against them, but I can't believe we're playing UNC again, and it's only round 2. I'm going to be a wreck by game time.

Add tOSU to the list of teams that would be in serious trouble if the refs called the rule book and not the reputations. Craft gets away with ALL KINDS of grabbing.
Of course, as Matt has pointed out via text message, this game is totally different with Babb playing. He's significantly better at running their chuck and duck offense than Lucious is.
That's not a charge, but it's ALWAYS called one these days
Doesn't matter if his foot is on the line. The fact that it's in the air = he was MOVING. I agree with Greg Anthony, though. There are missed calls over 40 minutes. We talk like the only misses are the ones in the last few minutes. Bottom line is that if Babb plays, ISU wins, and beyond that, Craft made a HUGE shot.
That was such a bad call. So sick of charges.
It's almost like Krzyzewski was on the sideline for tOSU.
Coach K may have pioneered the flop-charge D, but the NCAA is now to blame. The problem is obvious. Use the rules to fix it. Removing the charge from the rule block may be too extreme, and you can't fine college kids for flopping like in the NBA, but you can suspend floppers, call technicals for flopping (perhaps with video review allowed), etc., and the flopping stops real fast. That doesn't fix the refs calling a charge on a non-flop block, but it's a step in the right direction.
Heart is racing...
Just went to set my DVR. CBS scheduled this to end at 4. Even with the original start time that ends the recording 45 minutes early.
Have we played a good first half in an NCAA Tourney game since before the VCU game in '11?
I would qualify that to refer to offense only. We were amazing tonight on defense the whole game really. Other than a few wild rebounds to them and the points of turnovers we made UNC our bitch for that whole game with our defense. Our offense in the first half was cover your eyes awful but our defense was stout as stout can be.
Well, as stout as stout can be when you give up 8 offensive boards in a half to an undersized team.
This team needs to play on OFFENSE both halfs against Michigan. I can't believe Ben will continue struggling as much as he has since the Tech game. He needs to be knocking down outside shots. And if we can get one of Rele or EJ hitting from outside I like our chances.
The offensive boards were troubling a bit but also the kind of thing that happens when a team shoots lots of long jumpers.
North Carolina last year was a pretty good first half.
Self said the other day on 810 on KK's show that this team this year needs to make the other team play bad because we are not consistent enough to beat teams while playing at our best. He said we made it through the tourney last year by making other teams play bad. Said we only really played well in two halfs. I assumed he meant the second halfs of the UNC and Ohio State games.
What was Ole Miss coach thinking dropping into a 2-3 zone late in a tied game. That was just awful.
He was clearly ready to be done. Also why he didn't call timeout with 2 seconds left down by two.
Just to finish up the weekend, here's a link to "FGCU Dunk City."
