Come on over... we can grab some H/hooters or something for the game.

It's been raining the past few days, and I'm sure we'll get all the crap that's up there... walking two miles a day isn't nearly as pleasant in the wind and rain.

Once again, the result kind of doesn't matter. Win or lose, this team has done more for this fanbase than anyone could have imagined. Missouri is playing with house money and without a single bit of pressure. They're not supposed to be here. If UConn fails to make the Final Four, some will call it a failed season. If Missouri loses, it's still one of the greatest seasons in school history.

That said, you're on the brink. To get this close and fall short, well, it might hurt more than losing in the first round. Whether I believe or you believe or Dick Vitale believes, these kids believe they not only can win this game, but they believe they will. The confidence this team has played with all season is simply unflappable. They have no doubt they are going to be cutting down the nets. A little confidence added to a little talent is pretty dangerous.

As far as the keys to the game, real simple:
Make UConn play your game.
Run the hell out of Thabeet and Robinson and Adrien.
Find out if they can keep up. Maybe they can. Maybe.
Secondly, guard the HELL out of AJ Price.
In the first two rounds of the tournament, he was the best player in it. He wasn't that great against Purdue. Which Price are the Tigers going to get? If it's the one from the first two rounds, it's going to be incredibly difficult to win. If it's the one from last round, Missouri can do this.

So anyway, this game, it's everything you've EVER hoped for as a fan of this program. It's a group of kids that is easy to root for, a coach who has practiced what he's preached, who has worked his tail off to get here. It's a group that's not supposed to be here, but is. And given all that, nobody's giving them a chance. I like those odds.

In the end, I could break down every position and tell you all about the technical basketball aspects of this matchup. But that's not what today is about. Today is about a team, a coach, a school, a fanbase that finally gets its day in the sun. Why will Missouri win? Because somebody somewhere has a hand in it. I'm not trying to get philosophical and tell you God, or whatever you believe in, cares who plays in the Final Four. I'm just telling you I've been watching things happen for this team that just haven't ever happened around here. Zaire gets a friendly roll against KU, the path opens wide in the Big 12 tournament, Lazar Hayward steps out of bounds, Marcus Denmon makes a 65-footer (may have been 70). I'm telling you folks, I really think this is Missouri's year. They could put the Cleveland Cavaliers out there and I wouldn't bet against this group of kids right now.

I could be wrong. If I am, so be it.
This has been one hell of a season and a thrilling ride.
A loss won't change that.
But a win, well, I hope by tonight I could come up with the words to describe my feelings.

Still debating on what I will do. I have given thought to going to the game. I was at the Memphis game on Thursday, but think I will watch this one at home where I can have some beers.

MU needs to come out ready to play like the did against Memphis and run the hell out of Thabeet so it does not become a slow down half court game. In a half court game, 7'3" will beat 6'9".

I haven't paid much attention to their pre and post game stuff this year, but he had to be close to 0% on his picks last year, including getting the last three games wrong.

I've never linked the two together, but they are definitely two sports guys that cause me to change the channel faster than a freecreditrepot commerical.

What are the keys to the game?

How big of an impact will Thabeet be?

Will Mizzou be able to exploit UConn's lack of depth?

Will the Mizzou staff get flustered when AJ Price steals all their laptops at halftime?

Nope, theres no way we're going to be able to get easy layups with the big men UConn has. We have to play our usual fast style and get them tired and make them overplay. If we can do that, we'll win. But we cant play the same as we did in the 2nd half against Memphis.

PastorMikH
03-28-2009, 04:01 PM
Our players can't play toe to toe with UCON's players. But with them not being very deep on the bench, they will have their work cut out for them in the second half trying to run with us.


Though, these commercial breaks seem longer than an average halftime.

Mecca

What's hurting Missouri not cutting into the lead more is that they can let Thabeet sit longer.

I'm thinking the was we're getting hammered in the paint and then getting calls like that on us at the other end that we aren't necessarily the favorite of those guys in the two-toned striped shirts to win.

Not a great first half but after takign UConn's best punch we are right there. Keep running and taking it to the rack in the second half. This game is MU's for the taking. It could have been much much worse the way the Tigers played the first 20 minutes.

eazyb81
03-28-2009, 04:30 PM
Well, UConn punched us right in the mouth at the beginning, but we got up and kept fighting.

If you would have told me beforehand that we would be down 6 at the half, I would have taken it then and I'll definitely take it now.

He went underneath and ther was no way he could get back to hoop. That was great defense, no matter where Lyons ended up after the play.

DrRyan
03-28-2009, 04:32 PM
I'm not sure how Lyons gets blocked on a shot so hard that he goes to the floor and it's a clean block.

Because as Jay Bilas said, he is a finesse player. He has an NBA body, but needs to get stronger. His 6'9" plays more like 6'3" when he takes it to the hole.
