JPK lets go with a Pitt UNC avatar bet if they meet in the final 4. I think UNC can handle Griffin over the weekend, but Sam Young and Blair are going to make Hansboro and the boys go home weeping next weekend.


ok done and done.

cool. I'm pretty sure I won't even need to make a new avatar for you, I'll just need to find the stock Hansboro crying at the media podium from years past. :wink:


guess it would have been a fun bet if Pitt didn't suck and all.
Eh, they played hard against a solid Nova team that seems to be playing its best ball down the stretch. If you want, I'll still take the bet with Nova instead of Pitt. Gotta rep the Big East over the ACC.


i don't feel like you have any huge personal attachment to Villanova.

But i get to pick the avatar no matter what for a week, right?
Yeah I'll still take the bet. While I have no blood ties to Nova like other Big East schools (both my folks went to Rutgers and my sister goes to Pitt) there is a special place in my heart for 'Nova as the #1 school I wanted to go to undergrad for. Of course they waitlisted me, and my life has probably been altered, but I still enjoy cheering them on none the less. I'll be pulling for them and michigian state tonight.

well that was unfortunate, would have been nice if Nova didn't miss 25+ 3's tonight. JPK, pm me your avatar of choice and I'll host it for a week (sunday to saturday or monday to sunday I'd assume). In the meantime I'll have to figure out what avatar I want Jiga to come up for me for the regular season. Go Spartans!

Did Nova run an offense one time in the second half against Carolina?

i am going to withold avatar choice until the outcome of the national championship game.

if it turns out unfortunately, i'll just have to settle for you having a-rod kissing himself in the mirror for a week, i imagine.

yes -- teams have a habit of looking like they are awful when playing carolina, because compared to carolina -- they are awful.


people are going to start to have to do better than this "every team that plays carolina just happens to have its worst game of the program's history" malarky.

this team is really good.

Lawson and Ellington have been as good as anyone other than Griffin this tournament, and Green and Hansbrough have been just solid if a notch below.

Hansbrough was the player of the year last year and the offense doesn't run through him anymore!


Hell, the best NBA prospect doesn't even start (Davis).

This team is a lot like the 2005 except lawson is better than Felton, Ellington is eclipsing McCants, and May remains > Hansbrough in the tourney with Davis now playing marvin Williams role.

No question Carolina's D deserves a lot of the credit.

There's a reason that the Nova guards kept on jacking up contested 3s early in the shot clock.

I'm just surprised that Wright wasn't able to get them to try something different.

well it looks like they've got this one wrapped up. Just embarrassing Michigan State atm. What's the largest margin of victory in a title game? They very well might break it.

I wonder if CBS knew this was going to be a blowout and everyone was going to shut their TV off at half anyway. The late start all makes sense now...

perfect end for a group that postponed riches and came back to avenge an awful defeat.

first the georgetown debacle, then the kansas debacle

now glory

hopefully the 2009 mets can every bit the men Psycho T and crew were this year.

In BEFORE THE REPEAT BABY!
