  1. Wooden seems to have been similarly hated in his time, but the sport was just really becoming what it is in popularity near the end of his tenure.  Other coaches clearly resented his holier than though, saintly persona while the UCLA boosters were obviously dirty as all hell.  Of course all the big schools were playing dirty back then, just like they all bend the rules now.

  2. Last year's team will always be remembered more fondly and given they won a game in the NCAAs will always be better historically.

     

    This year's team was probably better though.  But in ten years we'll all remember last year's team as the better one.  Like Cooley mentioned that's just what happens.  I saw an old member of the Steel Curtain once...I think Jack Lambert...talk about that he believed the best team they had in their run was one that didn't win the Super Bowl.  Everyone else remembers the 4 in six years though.

  3. I generally think the Sweet 16 is about where strength of conference ends and after that it's more strength of individual teams (like say, just because Baylor won the title last season doesn't mean the Big XII was the best league).  But that's still hilarious.

  4. UNC and UCLA played a helluva game.  Bruins coulda put their foot on Carolina's throat with a few minutes  to go, but once Carolina tied it with 90 seconds or s (on a second chance three - offensive rebounds killed UCLA), I knew they were winning.

     

    I hope St. Pete's can beat UNC.  On my personal hate scale, only Kentucky rates higher.

  5. Well, everyone I know wanted to talk Gonzaga and Arizona going down.  That and Duke continuing on.  Didn't even hear the Nova game mentioned.  And last night's wrap up show on CBS Sports Network even joked about that Villanova's win MIGHT make the highlights.
