I love the camaraderie here. UConn might end up being a beast again. I agree, I don't think any legitimate NCAA contender would want to face them at tournament time. But they aren't a threat with the way they are playing now. And I'm a UConn fan.
I grew up in Lafayette; I've taken classes and worked at Purdue. Even though I go to IU now, I still have a soft spot in my heart for the place I spent my high school years getting drunk at. Purdue is actually a school I root for and I kind of want tonight to be a close game.
With that being said, I think PU loses by 30 and OSU might actually hit the century mark.
You got your wish on the close game. That was one heck of a game - and I think it, combined with the Illinois game, reveals a big hole in OSU's championship aspirations: They have a habit of giving up huge games to outside shooters. Purdue last night was killing it from 3.
You gotta feel for Zeller. Literally everyone has a hard-on for his brother and constantly compares the two. Cody is obviously better, but that doesn't change that fact that Zeller is a solid member of a solid Final Four contender.
Still doesn't excuse his play in the last minute of tonight.
Zeller doesn't deserve blame for the loss. If it wasn't for his stellar first half, one could say unc wouldn't have even been in the game. I feel as bad for him today as I possibly could, although that still isn't very much.
