Wichita State about to knock the #1 seed out?

Hope I'm not the only one holding up the Shocker hand gesture at home.

West will be wide open for the taking by the Bucs!
Clear shot for the final four, but they got to take care of business against Iowa St.
Yep. Hope with the early start they can get going early. Seemed like they have had problems with the early games all season.
Amazing! 1, 3, 4 and 5 seeds gone. I'm loving this West region.
Time for the MEN from the BIG TEN to take charge of the tournament and show the rest of the country that we ARE the best conference!

we better. am i the only one who thinks if osu does not make the final 4 matta should have to resubmit his resume ? What was the committee thinking putting the west together ? lol o welllllllllllll!!! go craft go bucks !
The announcers at the end of this game kept talking about 'parity' in basketball this year. Here's the thing: so far the sweet 16 is made up of 2 Big Ten teams, 2 Big East teams (with Syracuse currently winning and would make 3), 2 Pac 12 teams, and Wichita State. All big boys except for Wichita. Where is the parity, exactly?
Gonzaga was the worst waste of a #1 seed I can ever remember. I said on another thread that the only two decent teams they played all year beat them -- at their place. Illinois and Butler--not exactly powerhouses. Gonzaga's seed reminded me of ND in the NCG against Alabama. Pollsters must be required to have IQ's and common sense approaching zero!
This region is setting up nicely but every team scares me at this point, especially 'Zona. We all know that the Bucks are capable of an extended scoring drought that could change everything.
There isn't any parity.
It's the media trying to sway the masses that there is.....to justify their means.
Parity? Well if there's so much parity then how come the highest seed to win a NC is a 5th or 6th seed?
That is not what I call parity.
At least Notre Dame had proved in the past they might deserve it.
I hate that I'm defending Notre Dame......but in all honesty they've won their fair share of national titles.
IMO that was a bad comparison.....and they did play 10 times the schedule Gonzaga could dream of navigating through unscathed.
There honestly wasn't a team I would have chosen over Notre Dame to play in that game. College football had a weird season last year......(if we would have been eligible that would have been a different story but we weren't so Notre Dame was the most obvious choice IMO).
They easily could have lost IN THE FIRST ROUND.
Yup, worst ever 1 seed.
Exactly. I had a thread after I watched them play before the tournament because I was amazed anyone would give them a number 1 ranking. Especially when the Bucks could barely break the top 10. I just couldn't wrap my mind around what anybody seen that was so special. I guess in the long run, it doesn't matter anyways.
