The media wants to build them up as elite w/o mentioning their tournament failures.

What does the media have to gain by hyping Gonzaga?

10 years ago OSU came back down 9 with 2 minutes left against Xavier to advance to the Final 4. Great highlight/memory:

That should've been a Flagrant foul on Oden... Still, make your free throws and it's a non issue.

The "Cinderella" angle. It's the exact same thing they did w/ Boise St in football. I haven't heard one analyst have the balls to talk about: 1) how they always choke in the tournament, and 2) how their weak schedule hurts them come tournament time.

They and Oregon love that highlighter yellow/green look. It's awful.

What's pretty amazing is they then came back from down about 20 the very next round against Tennessee

Sitting in the 99th percentile on ESPN. Easily my best first round ever. It's hilarious because I don't think I watched one full game the entire season aside from UC

SMU was my only important loss. Had them Sweet 16. Got Middle Tennessee, Rhode Island, and Xavier upsets and didn't pick any others

I will say that announcers love to bring up Easy Coast bias because nobody stays up late to watch games. The seem to use hat to justify how good they think Gonzaga is

Bobby Huggins has got a hell of a basketball team this year. Looks like a final four squad to me. Gonzaga-WVU should be a great game

WVU has consistently been in the top 10 of the kenpom rankings all year. Showed why today. Made a veteran Notre Dame team that didn't turn the ball over much all year look confused and panicked at times.

Assuming they take care of Northwestern, Gonzaga-WVU will be an interesting match up.

Clark Kellogg used a great adjective to describe West Virginia today:

Punctilious

There's been so much chalk thus far, it seems like something has to give today/tomorrow. If all the #1 and #2 seeds make it to the sweet 16 that would be pretty lame.

jtk has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Say what you want about Charles Barkley, but his comments about the Ball father last night were pure gold.
