If only our bracket ended up the way Lunardi has it now. Have to beat Texas tech to get to elite 8, Virginia for final 4. Texas tech is a not as good version of us. And I've said it before I'll say it again, Virginia can't compete with us offensively. I would love a matchup against them for the final four.

Yes that would be perfect. Virginia has no inside game and no dribble penetration. They would possibly score in the low 40's against us, and they'd have to double our post players=open 3's. If we hit them at a decent clip is a different story haha

Yeah. They're scoring 60 on Dukes defense lol. Would hate to see them against ours. I wouldn't expect to crush em, but we could score 50 before them lol

It's pretty amazing what a low opinion everyone seems to have of Virginia around here. I wonder how they've won a game all year.

I don't have a low opinion of them at all. I just don't think their offense is all that great, because it isn't. How many times have you sat down and watch one of their full games?

UC has the better offense, I do not think anyone thinks Virginia is a bad team.

Our losses right now are to a projected 1 seed on the road in one of the 5 most hostile rivalries in CBB. If it's not for 20 turnovers we win that FLA game 7 out of 10 times on a neutral court the way we are playing now.

I hope they are both in our bracket TBH. Let us get a 2 or 3 seed and let FLA be a 7 seed. If we are a 2 or 3 seed I hope Eggs is the 1 seed in our bracket. Bring that sh$t on!! Redemption please!
