            I totally beg to differ. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the tip time, because Gonzaga played the first game tonight, and it gives Beard EVEN LESS time to prep for Gonzaga. I feel and will continue to feel that the guy who has made 3 elite 8's and 2 sweet 16's in the past 5 years, along with 20 straight NCAA tourneys (or whatever it is), enjoys a big coaching advantage in this game. There is mammoth difference between coaching in the NCAA tourney, and coaching in the regular season. Few had some success at the beginning, but Mark had to learn a lot of things until he got to where he is right now. Beard is very early on in his learning curve.

            Teams are who they are right now. They don't change, and you cannot properly have a practice at this juncture. The tip time helps Gonzaga.

            Especially because TT, as great as their defense is, has not seen 3 big men on any team quite like Tillie, Clarke and an engaged Hachimura. In fact, all of the TBS analysts picked Gonzaga because of their frontline. Also, as great as TT is at defense, I feel that they are an easier prep for GU than even FSU, who is obviously not as good defensively as TT. It is because FSU's size and length is so unconventional, and is impossible to prep for. Whereas TT plays a more conventional defense. It maybe superior to FSU's, but it's MORE LIKE Gonzaga's way of playing of defense.

            You want as little time between tonight's game and the TT game as possible. If Michigan had won tonight, I would be saying the opposite.

              My oldest daughter got M's tickets month's ago for Sat. Nite to see her beloved BoSox.

              She will be happy with this start time.
              But we don't play nobody.

                Umm... it's Saturday. It really doesn't matter the start time. I'll be there. Regardless. Go Zags. Can't wait until Minneapolis!
                My posts indicate that I don't seem to follow college basketball all that closely.

                  Good post yet watching Tech post game vs watching GU post game was night & day.

                  We looked exhausted, flushed, covered in sweat, ragged.

                  Tech looked fresh, bouncy, barely breaking a sweat, & not a hair outta place.

                  Not that they didn't work hard but could limit their mins, and keep them rested with such a big lead. Nlt many fouls either.

                    Only hardwork can sharpen the edge. MI was awful, awful, awful in that game. I like GU’s odds come Saturday.

                        I couldn’t have hoped for a better time slot. Game at 5, Mumford & Sons start at 8. I was sweating it out, 5 was my only hope. Not going to the show wasn’t an option. (It actually was but it would’ve been horrible.)

                          Yeah I know, give me the Pacific northwest with east coast start times and I'm all good

                            To be fair... They were throttling the Wolverines... they didn't have to play too hard and they cleared the benches in the last minute and a half.

                              Yes it is... Perfect timing for us on the east coast. Cloudy and 58... will have the grill cleaned off and going to buy a couple of prime cowboy steaks on the way home from work tonight. Steaks, beer and Zags... perfection.
