I don't think anyone can beat UNC right now.

And I like the late start for the championship game...I should be able to watch most of it after the Cubs game. :)

UNC vs. Uconn in the championship with UNC winning by 15+.

I still think any of these teams are tough matchups. They are all here for a reason, cause they can play. I wouldn`t take credit, nor sleep on any of them. Uconn scares me the most. But hell we got to make it past Nova first.

uconn is good but nova will be our toughest matchup i think. they are playing great now and we need to step up the d on their guards. uconn does find a way to win when they get to the final 4 so we will see. i just hope our losing streak doesnt continue, 07 elite 8 lose, 08 final 4 lose, and 09 championship game lose. i think we will pull it out, but i also thought this last year and somewhat the year before. this is the time, has to be done now.

I've been wanting to see a UConn-UNC championship since before the season started.

North Carolina over UConn for the championship. Michigan State played like they were destined to be here against Louisville, but I think UConn is the better team with or without Dyson. Had Crocker shot the ball nearly as well as he did against Syr in the Elite 8, the Sooners would have given the Heels a much better ball game, but the Heels look the most unbeatable right now.

I also like UNC over uconn.. If UNC makes it to the NC game, i cant see them losing.. Especially with TH, green leaving and lawson, ellington most likely leaving..

People have looked over MSU all tourney, I remember a fair number of you saying we would lose second round to USC. I think we match up extremely well with UCONN and have a solid chance against them.

And they won't even gaurd eachother. Just like they didn't have Hansbrough gaurd Griffen. He doesn't match up well with either of them.

Yeah, with the way they took care of the overall #1 seed, I would be pretty scared if I was the other three teams.

I think MSU has played amazing in the tourney. But so have all of the other teams. I think any of the teams left can be lethal and I wouldnt overlook any of them.

I really would like to see a big ten team win the championship but with who the spartains have to face it would be a big upset. So I think it will be UNC over UCONN but i would like to see nova over michigan state or vise versa.

Pretty bad logic considering Thabeet, Adrien, Price, and Austrie are all leaving for UConn, too...

I have a feeling that MSU will beat UConn and UNC will advance past 'Nova. I see UNC beating MSU by making them uncomfortable with their fastbreak game.

I usually don't quote my post, but my predictions aren't always correct. So far I'm 2/3, the last prediction is UNC winning it all. Too bad I couldn't be this correct in my bracket :(

Agreed.

UNC is too complete of a team and are firing on all cylinders right now.

Though, I hope I'm wrong.

State by 13, 89-76. It just seems like something that would happen this year.

I`m tired of the whole the state of michigan needs this win. you know the economy sucks anywhere you go. North Carolina is the second highest in unemployment rates behind who michigan. So its just about as bad just not as crappy when it comes to weather. And you cant play the cinderella card, Michigan state is a #2 seed with a great program and an elite coach. So lets stop making all the sad hopeful stories lets get this game on and may the better team win.

Digger Phelps is what gives me the most confidence about this game. He has picked us to lose every single game since USC second round, he picked us to lose again. We are loving the underdog role.

Not to take away from UNC, the turnover ratio has been staggering, but the refs have been (as always) all over UNC's **** this game. OMG YOU BREATHED ON LAWSON THAT'S A FOUL.

04-06-2009, 11:41 PM
the refs have been fine. it would have helped michigan st to play any trace of defense

You can't possibly tell me that foul where Lucius hurt his foot was a foul on him. That was a "YOU DIDN'T LET YOUR GOD GET THE BALL" foul. In fact, Lawson has been flopping all over the place in the games I've seen this tourney. There's a difference between selling a foul and being a ****ing soccer player about ****.

I'm not blaming the refs for Mich. St. losing though, they didn't play well enough to deserve the win.

OMG YOU BREATHED ON LAWSON THAT'S A FOUL.I thought they were a little whistle happy for UNC, but since it isn't duke it is not going to be as much of a commotion, anywho they dominated every facet of the game. It was literally too easy for UNC throughout the tourney.

Congrats to the entire Tar Heels squad. Heels!! Charge!! We were just better than any other team in college hoops this year. Too much experience. I feel really good for Tyler Hansbrough, he deserved this one. However, watch out for State next year...most starters are returning....thanks mkool for the update, thought they were both juniors...my bad

The better team won tonight, MSU was cold though, Allen 0-8 from 3, Lucas ice cold and we shot terrible from the line. Great season though, I am thriled with how it turned out.

To the post above, we return 3 starters. Walton and Suton are seniors. I do expect another Final Four next year though.
