You can make valid arguments about VCU over Va Tech and Bama and vice versa, but there's no denying that St. Mary's was FAR more deserving than VCU and UAB. IMO it's a better tournament if the Gaels and Hokies (or even Colorado for that matter) are playing instead of VCU and UAB.

On top of that, they have a lot of experience together. With the exception of Soph PG Kenny Boynton, the other starters are all upperclassmen. They play well inside and outside. Plus, they only have to drive two hours to Tampa to play their first game(s).

I know I'm biased, but I think they are built for a deep push. Billy D knows how to coach in this tourney.

I love Billy D he got his nickname at PC. My dad is a alum of PC and in 87 we went to the Final Four to watch Bill D play. They lost to the Orange Men but it was great.

Billy D is a play on Ernie DiGregorio who folks use to call Ernie D.

How could I have forgotten about Harvard?? They were more deserving than a few teams that made it as well.

Funny thing was after I typed that I started flipping through the sport channels again and on one of the ESPN's they were talking about the mens tournament, while on the other ESPN they were showing some sort of womens selection special. It was then that I flipped to Fox Sports to see that they were showing poker. It was like the universe was intentionally f**king with me.

Thank God for the league specific networks, because God knows that when I only had ESPN a month ago the only sport I was allowed to watch was college basketball......and poker. Heck where I was staying I didn't even have TNT or VS along with slow internet so I was cut off from the NBA and NHL, well at least the live games.

I don't know if they deserved to get it, but they proved they can at least win.

Go Rams Go.

Re: ***2010-2011 College Hoops Thread***

Loe and I both went to bed satisfied last night......

I think our D looked as good as it has all year yesterday (especially rebounding), but we definitely did not have our best game by far. USC looked pretty crappy last night too, i wonder why no one made a big deal about them getting in the tourney.... i guess its easy to pick on the little guy.

VCU GTown should actually be a good match up. Hopefully the Rams can stay in it and pull out a win.
