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?

I think he meant specifically for a 9 seed but I dunno

He must have, but that seems weirdly specific to talk about what’s unprecedented. Has a 7 seed ever beaten a 10 and 15? I don’t really know but the path would theoretically be easier.

Yeah, that's what he meant, but you would think someone trained as a lawyer is some big shot school like Duke and not a diploma mill like KU was be more precise with his words.

Yeah... Seems a bit extraneous to mention all the unprecedented things that happen as a direct consequence of the original unprecedented thing. Like if Kentucky beats us then yes it will be unprecedented that a 5 seed made the E8 by beating a 9 seed who had just previously beaten a 16 seed and while that's technically accurate its like who cares

Enjoyed Mike Golic Jr. tweeting something disparaging about Manhattan, getting flamed for it by KSU fans, then deleting said tweet.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

I’m kind of relishing our role here. Just one more tournament darling stands in our way.

seems wrong? i saw there's a 65% chance ksu wins this one, and a 40% chance the next. basically 25% to advance to the title game. say we have a 33% in the title game, that means we are 12/1 to win it all.

538 says 7% we win it all. we need to beat AA with AKo

It's like Andy doesn't know that Texas beat the 1st place team in the league.  On the road.  By 20.  :dunno:

Without Wade, before they rattled off 5 in a row and two being against ranked teams on the road. Wow!

For some reason that dumb ass article was at the top of my Google news feed. Who cares about some neckbeard from bleacher report?

Still not a “lock” on ESPN’s bubble watch.

Media :curse:

I mean, I get that if we  rap the bed for the remainder of our games and lose out we would probably not make it. But with what we have going on, they sure are taking a massive dump on us.

Yeah if that’s the standard I don’t think you have any locks outside maybe the top 5 right now. Plus even if we lose out we’re a bubble team at worst I think. We’ve definitely got in with worse resumes.
