are when ND wins and Duke loses. I'd have preferred the former but will gladly take the latter.
I'm rooting for the Final Four venue to be hit by a tsunami. With all people involved making it out safely, of course.
that you expected VJ to have a big tournament, or something to that effect.
of the week instead of actual in depth analysis that it is unbearable to watch much of their expert "analysis". I stick to Taxman, Kabong and Kayo for the most part and I find I am more prepared to watch the Irish and others intelligently.
would be going to the Elite Eight from the bottom half of the East bracket.
It drove me nuts too before the ACC Championship game when like you said the narrative was Duke was coming together and finally healthy and playing their best ball when reality was they squeaked by Clemson and then UL gave them the game etc.
ND in one less tournament game pretty much dominated from start to finish the UVA and FSU games yet no similar talk of how ND was coming together or playing there best ball.
or at least it seems that way in hindsight. Something happened when ND started going cold in the Duke game in the finals and they didn't get that grove back. I had really hoped that they'd find that grove and ride it a Final Four and finally break through.
Picking game by game, I thought they had the best chance to win each time.
It has been a long time since Duke was an outstanding defensive program, but I didn't envision anyone hitting its defense with 65 points in a half. Olé!
for money. That's enough fun for me.
Had a good turnout this year
