My take:

Weber needs to drop some F Bombs in front of the camera, then the media will notice.

Awaiting the inevitable KITN

So you disagree with my "Take"?

Yea, pretty much.  I don't think anyone actively dislikes Weber outside of Manhattan and wherever Illinois is.

Our D has been pretty amazing. Only the Cats and the 1-seeds have played a 16 and an 8/9 (well, except for Virginia, ha). In those first two rounds, here's how they compare in points allowed....
Xavier: 79
Virginia: 74
KU: 69.5
Villanova: 59.5
KSU Cats: 51

Obviously points per possession would be a better metric but I couldn’t easily find those stats offhand.
That's a pretty interesting stat!
:adios:

We're not the ultimate underdog nor a blue blood with a large fan base.

A uniform rendered in the world's most accursed color is bad enough. But when you throw in purple tights, purple socks and purple sneakers, that's a surefire ticket to the bottom of this list. Sorry, Wildcats.

Exactly what you would expect from Kentucky sports radio. The 1st hour for the 3/21 is gold.

I can 100 times out of 100 spot a person from a lower caste based solely on their feelings about purple.

Bilas bias and he's factually wrong. TL;DR: we're the worst team left standing and it's not even close.

No team benefitted more from UMBC's win, as Kansas State had to beat only an 8-seed and a 16-seed to reach the Sweet 16. That is unprecedented, thanks to the UMBC upset of Virginia.

Really? You really don’t think anyone has ever beaten an 8 seed and 16 seed to reach the Sweet 16? Really?
