CBS says its at 6:40 so they are probably right.

I'll be watching CBS for the next two days besides for church and brunch (why did Jesus have to resurrect during basketball?), so whatever time it is on is cool for me.

I haven't seen Washington State play this year, but I know they have a slow pace and try to keep the score down. What that means is that ND will have to run. Try to get the Cougars to play their style and knock them off of their game.

It does. SI had 1:00 listed for some reason, but it's changed now.

Once again, I forgot the poll, but it's been added now.

I picked WSU. I may have overrated the Pac 10 too. I picked against a lot of the teams I am pulling for, not just ND.

ND by about 5. Washington State is a team that won't blowout people but won't get blown out either. Like Butler. Butler beating South Alabama by 18 would be the equivalent of Notre Dame beating George Mason by 35. I'm so excited for BU-Tennessee and ND-Wazzou. ND and Butler looked great in the first round. Butler will beat Tennessee.

WSU plays great D, but their athleticism is average, at best. As IrishR#1 said, we'll be best off by pushing the floor and trying to make them follow our tempo.

WSU is good, but they are vastly overated. They should really be a 6th seed if you ask me. They have one good player at guard. Gody will dominate this game. I expect to see 30+ from him.

i hope they dominate. it will give them the confidence to continue forward.

I think if we make it to the Elite 8, we will make it the championship

we had better start to shoot alot better.

I think we'd be shooting better if the shots we're taking weren't so bad. We're forcing stuff like crazy and making bad decisions on the offensive side of the ball.

MacAlarney hits a three and gets fouled, but misses the free throw. Pansy foul called on Kurz.

What a fucking joke that game was. I've never been more embarrassed in one of my teams. Add up my embarrassment from this past football year, and it wouldn't even touch this game. Brey is a big game choker. Fire him. Zeller sucks. Send him to Siberia. That's not because of the game. I just have an irrational hatred of Zeller. McAlarney blows in big games as I well. This team is a joke. My expectations for next year just dropped down to nothing. Maybe a Sweet 16. This team can't play away from Joyce and they can't play in big games. Maybe if Brey can schedule a game away from home. We don't need to play North Florida and Northern Illinois in the non-conference. If you schedule good teams, you get in automatically even if you suck. Ask Arizona. Brey has to be fired.

You can never really blame a game on one player, but if you could, Harangody would shoulder it here. I don't care how many rebounds you pull down, going 3-17 from the field is pretty inexcusable. He forced out of position shots in double and triple teams instead of dishing it out for an open shot so many times I lost count. Jackson, Hillesland, Zeller, and Peoples shot a combined 2-15, with both field goals coming from Jackson. Let's hope next year is different..

we need a coach who can recruit athletes. no offense to the current team. but we need players like eric gordon or michael beasely.

I love this team. Its just frustrating.

We need a stronger non-conference schedule next year. Going over to Hawaii will really test us next year. Why do we always seem to fall apart in March?

We don't seem to play well on the road at all. Even though we do win some, we ought to play alot better on the road.
