    I've been anxiously dreading the possibility of that for so many years now because it would give one side so much leverage over the other but not this year...this year we have little to lose and nearly everything to gain so if it does indeed comes to fruition on April 4th, so be it!

    Go west until you reach Dallas, then turn south until you reach repeat.

    Never happen. Both teams are way too flawed.

    ah. I got it now. I can't imagine what it was like for UL and UK to face eachother a few years ago in the final 4.

    I have no interest in ending a night with the chance of the cheats celebrating at the cost of a duke title game loss.

    That said, who's going to beat the cheat? There's no one left in their region really going to put up a fight. They've beaten UVA on a neutral floor (and kept them close away). kansas? Oklahoma? UNC currently has the best chance of ANY team to be in the final 4 AND title game (per 538). Flawed? Maybe...but even a beat up buggy can travel good road.

    Duke on the other hand...we'd have to roll oregon, THEN oklahoma, THEN kansas...which is why we're rocking 6%.

    SO currently the 2000 lb elephant is about about a .021 pound elephant

    Which could be said about ANY two teams left standing.

    That said, I'm more concerned with foul than ungulates at this moment.

    a little premature for that kind of talk is it not? let's at least see if we can win the next one...

    The End of the Universe has happened once before. 1992, women's soccer. They had Hamm, Lilly, and Venturini. We had ... college soccer players, a team in its first-ever appearance in the tournament that made an improbable run to the final.

    It was not pretty.

    No

    No no no no no no no

    No.

    Please no.

    I thought I was a nervous wreck when we were down 9 to Wisconsin and down 17 to Maryland in 2001.

    This would be the end of basketball as we know it.

    No.

    I'm pretty sure my head would explode sometime on the Sunday before the event. If not, the stress would build sometime Monday mid afternoon resulting in one of the following: ruptured anyeurism, stroke, heart attack, complete mental breakdown, sudden onset blindness, sudden onset loss of hearing, hives, disgusting rash with puss-like seepage, catatonic state.

    I can't handle that right now. Would rather just skip to Tuesday to find out the positive result and watch the I stand classic rerun on ESPN Classic.

    Who was going to beat Michigan State?

    Who was going to beat Kentucky last year?

    Long, LONG way to go before worrying about a Duke-UNC title game -- a long way for either team.

    Worry about it when and if we both get to Houston.

    PS I would strongly favor Virginia in a rematch in the national semifinals.

    Yes it could be the year for 4 ACC teams in the final four.

    It will be fun to watch Duke v Miami and UVA v Notre Dame.

    If it didn't happen in 1991... how could it ever happen?
