You play who is in front of you. If Syracuse got to the final 4 would any of this be a talking point.

I don’t like the word “easy”. Nothing comes easy when you get this far. Oregon State will be a tough opponent.

Yeah. Ask Tennessee about Oregon State. Or Oklahoma State. Or Loyola.

Ask Illinois how easy Loyola was.

Ask SDSU and West Virginia how easy Syracuse was.

Caught that too, eh? There’s always something.

Probably, but literally who cares? A Final Four is a Final Four and I’m not gonna apologize for it.

Yep, no one will care or remember how we got there even a year from now.

I don’t care who we beat. A Final Four is a frickin Final Four.

This is the Elite 8. Anyone can best anyone at this late stage. To me, there are no more upsets.

That’s why…just me…I didn’t like looking down the line of bracket n saying well this team will be tough bc of such n such. Any of us thats followed MarchMadness for 5 yrs or 45 yrs knows there’s always major hits on a bracket. If Poole misses that 3 from 30 ft the Coog path was set few yrs ago.

This!

“So Houston has no reason whatsoever to apologize for its path. If the Cougars beat Oregon State on Monday, they will have earned their first Final Four appearance since the Phi Slama Jama era. The banner that would hang in their gym wouldn’t require an asterisk.”

Hmm…the way I took the article is that Houston is stout and earning its way to the Final Four. The above paragraph, to me, alludes to that.
