Scroll down to athletics.
I know about Lewis. Not sure you can tell me anything I don’t know about Lewis.

Let me ask it this way. Are you saying they didn’t win the 2003 D1 championship?

K-State can beat Kentucky if they have 5 guys left who haven’t fouled out.

We're quickly approaching "That's enough, Chris Webber" territory for my signature.
That's enough, Reggie Miller.

That's enough, Chris Webber.

First time Florida State is in the Elite Eight since 1993. The 1993 team had players like Sam Cassell, Charlie Ward, and Bob Sura on the roster.

I know I'm suppose to root for Loyola but I'm for KState and Bruce in this game. COY on 3 conferences, maybe not a big deal but that doesn't seem like an easy deal to get. He's a class act all the way and I hope they continue to win.........if they don't I will root for Loyola against everyone else

Bruce couldn’t get anyone to come to play for the Illini, KState fans are not real cool with him, but then all he does and go out and beat Kentucky! Meanwhile Illini is still rebuilding while Bruce is smiling. And no more having to watch Ashley Judd!!!

Weber had a couple highly rated classes at the end of tenure.

DJ, BP3, Bertrand and Griffey
Richmond, Leonard, Head

Unfortunately for Weber, Richmond was a criminal and Head wasn’t the second coming (not even close) of Luther.

I’m also cheering for K State in this game. I cheered Loyola on to victory the first 3 games, but would love to see Bruce win the game Saturday.

Tonight's games went about as expected.

Wonder how much different things would have been for Purdue if Haas wasn't hurt.

Bradley was 5 minutes away from MVC semi win that would have squashed Cinderella.

Buzzer beater over 6.
Buzzer beater over 3.
One point win over 7.
Win over 9 missing their leading scorer.

Thirteen point win over 11.
Three point win over 14.
Thirteen point win over 7.
Thirteen point win over 4.

Somewhat similar.

Congrats to Loyola and the MVC! :td I wonder how much this will help Loyola recruit top players in the city of Chicago and Chicago area? If they could scoop us some players the next few years you could be a dominant program....what a fun team to watch!

They already have three good players from Chicago in Krutwig, Ingram and Williamson.

Bradley was 5 minutes away from beating Loyola in MVC semifinal.

The path reminds me of a team that won a ncaa title.

I think you knew that and wanted me to say it. :P

I don't know about that. I'm a Bradley fan but its a stretch saying they were five minutes away from beating Loyola in the semifinal. But a lot of luck is involved in getting to the Final Four--regardless of your seed, conference affiliation, etc.

I think that Bradley trailed by 1 with 5 minutes left. Of course Bradley couldn’t buy a point those last 5 minutes though.

Michigan choking.

Florida State down 4 didn’t foul with 10 seconds left?

Speaking of luck both Loyola and Michigan have won in this tournament with buzzer beaters.
