It is what it is, I think we have a decent shot at the elite 8.

Mississippi State has to be absolutely loving knowing that they will only have to face one of these two teams this season in the tournament.

Hell, Tennessee got a better draw as a 3 than we did.... They get to play 2 hours from campus if they get by the first 2 games...

They probably punished us for winning last year without having to beat UConn.

You have to have balance to beat UConn. It can't just be one star player and a bunch of role-players.

The silver lining of A'ja's limited minutes is that other players had to get better.

I will wait until we have to actually play UConn to assume we are going to lose to them.

I'd definitely say this is part of it, but we seem to get questionable draws every year.

Two things come to mind with the Albany placement.

1. ESPN does not want the Gamecocks to win the championship. They are doing all they can to make it most difficult. After all, they are one of the top recruiters for Uconn (they are known to help Geno recruit).

2. I can't understand how the number one team in attendance year after year have to play so far away in the second week. You would think that they would be rewarded, not punished. It seems that the NCAA does all they can to keep the best fan base away from giving their team any advantage.

Maybe my view is too prejudice, but it seems that the "old school" teams are treated differently than the new powers.

Default Re: Number 2 Seed in Albany Regional

Well I think we only had a realistic chance at two of the regionals, considering that Oregon was a 2 seed and Mississippi State is a 1 seed, I didn't see any situation where we end up in Spokane or Kansas city. That left us with either Lexington or Albany and from an economic standpoint it would make sense to put us in Lexington region against the only 1 seed we have yet to play. Which would place Baylor in Kansas city and Texas as the weakest 2 seed to Albany. That scenario would make the most sense distance wise for each of the 2 seeds. So I'm assuming they decided to go by matchups and decided it was unfair to put the Number 1 overall seed UConn against Texas a team they beat in a close game and put us in instead because they had blowout against us. In hopes that any final four matchup would be more competitive than our midseason game we had against them.

So, you think ESPN runs the NCAA?

Speaking of Albany, there are plenty of tickets on Ticketmaster and StubHub; remember those 10,000 Gamecock fans at MSG for the Elite Eight game against Florida? Many of them live in greater NY - not far from Albany.
