The Illini deserve their spot in Monday's final. They've had an unbelievable season,
and they showed their smart play and great skills against a really good Louisville
team. Will they be up against NC or MSU ?..We'll see in about 3 hours.

First time in 30 years that the two regular season top-ranked teams have played in the final.

from espn.com
Now it's down to the first 1-seed vs. 1-seed championship game since Duke-Connecticut in 1999, and just the fourth since the NCAA began seeding teams in 1979. If you're hunting for omens, here's one for the Carolina crowd: the school's two most recent national titles were earned as a No. 1 seed against a No. 1 seed: over Georgetown in 1982 and Michigan in 1993.
GO HEELS!!!

It was good to see Dean Smith in the crowd at yesterday's game. Maybe he spoke to the players at halftime. Whatever, the 'heels sure found their fire in the second half against a very good Michigan State team.

Go Carolina!

I'm an alumni, but I don't really have much enthusiasm for them. I just wish them well and turn the channel. But I hope your team wins, Midgie.

Thanks Koffee. I root for any Illinois team. Basketball, baseball, football, and hockey.
But I hate close games, I want a blow out. And thats just not going to happen.

I guess. I don't know what's happening because I'm not watching it, but my guess is that the Illini are being sluggish, missing baskets, not being aggressive, etc. I was there in '89, mind you. It's the last time I ever thought we'd win, and that loss was just the kick in the stomach I needed. We always mess it up somehow. We're in the state of Illinois, and we're just programmed this way. If MJ hadn't come to the Bulls, we wouldn't have ever had that run of luck. Cubs, Sox, Bulls, Bears... the Illini are just following true to form.

It's gloomy, I know. But I just don't invest anymore emotion in the sports in Illinois.

Koffee
