Best odds of any of the 13 seeds. Let's not forget the committee loves to see at least a few upsets, and also recall SFA who won 20 straight games going into the tournament last year, yet received a 14 seed. Bracket Matrix(consensus), had them solidly as a 13 seed. We know how that ended for WV :-)

Obviously Swanigan and Haas are the story but we can't let Dakota Mathias-one of the best shooters in entire country- kill us from deep like he did last year.

Re: Vermont vs Purdue

Yea Purdue has the inside out game going for them. Great strong bigs and outside shooters. I think it's easier to manage than extreme athletic disadvantage.

Last year should be put in the past. Lamb and Henson can provide much better beef in guarding the bigs. Wills should help greatly on their top wing.

We may not win this game but hopefully it helps us when we get a 10 seed next year.

Interesting, action already going on at some of the bigger books, the Westgate, Southpoint, Caesars, and the MGM-owned properties, in opposite directions.

Re: Vermont vs Purdue

Can Dre successfully guard a guy who is 7'2"?

That question might finally get answered.

No he can't. It's actually going to be an issue as they put a 6'8" starting power forward on the wing when they play big. Not sure we want to see much of Wills at SF spot. We are going to need to sub according to what Purdue does or they will have big mismatches.

That was a joke captain obvious.


I do agree with the strategy to play everybody all night long. We will not be taking advantage of an advantage if Herlihy plays 5 mins and Drew U plays one.

Guys, four months ago I bought Thursday and Saturday tickets to the pod in Milwaukee.

I'm going to get to see you guys play in person!

I'll be cheering you on as a good conference compatriot. Good luck! You got a tough matchup but you're also a tough bunch.
