UK, Buffalo, KSU or UMBC will be in the elite 8. All but one of those options would be bananas.

Go Buffalo

Bo Ryan's coaching style doesn't work in the tourney... or rather, it can allow teams to build great regular seasons while not being all that great. The last 5 years UVA has earned the following seeds: 1, 2, 1, 5, 1... They've only reached the elite 8 once, and it was in Brogdon's senior year. Look at the Wisconsin teams that made deep runs, and they had some great individual talents. Guys who could carry the offense.

but I feel like Bo did well in the tourney, at least against us he did lol.  

I really think the packline is a bad way to play defense, especially when you get game planned well. It has happened to us so many times.

My bracket is in shambles, and I don't even care.

Well done, Retrievers. Well done.

Remember when we all thought Virginia 1, Zona 4 and Kentucky 5 was gonna be a murderer's row

Yeah, if anyone was gonna go down, it was gonna be Kentucky - Davidson looked hot.

But hey, they call it March Madness for a reason.

I would say overall he was very successful in the tourney, and never had the same sustained regular season success as Bennett has had, but he made the tourney 14 times, mostly as an at-large, and failed to make it out of the first weekend half the time. Considering what he was working with, it's a miracle he made that many tournaments, and most of the teams predictably fell well short. I think Bennett is a tremendous coach, and suggesting this style of coaching doesn't work was wrong of me, but it really can hide a lack of talent, and I don't think you can keep hiding that in the tournament.

As a UMBC alumni who never attended a basketball game because they were so terrible, I am at a loss for words. This is FREAKING AMAZING!!!

We're all retrievers today!!!

 

I didn't go to UMBC but I spent a lot of time on the campus with a bunch of friends and have some really strong memories to the campus and this is seriously incredible. What a night!

Kansas, Xavier and Villanova won by an average of 20.3 PPG vs their 16 seed matchups. UMBC, a 16 seed, won by the same margin. lmao I love March.

I was agreeing with you btw. But I think you were talking about his offense and I was talking about the defensive scheme.
