Good luck, Troy, Beat those Dukies for us.



I like Troy, but I'll look forward to them getting absolutely destroyed by Duke.

You don't really need to "look forward to it." It's a safe bet . . I detest Duke, for reasons that I'll not go into here. If Troy played Duke 100 times they'd lose at minimum 99, and I'm sure you could find a Vegas line that had Duke winning all 100.
Same could be said if we were playing Duke. Mid-Majors are simply "not in that class." That's why 16 seeds don't beat 1 seeds . . . at least not yet . . . .
I have no ill will towards Troy. We played them straight up, and they won. Now it's pretty much a given that they'll get pounded by Duke. Tis the nature of 15/2 matchups.

Troy's only hope is to shoot 90% from 3.

A TXST/Troy final was terrible for the Sun Belt. UTA was projected as a 12 seed. GSU and A-State were probably 13 seeds. Georgia Southern was probably a 14 seed. I'm sure the league wasn't happy with a Troy/TXST final.

Tough game. We lost the turnover battle 17-5 and we were the best team in the league taking care of the ball all season. Turnovers cost us this game. Got home around 12:30am last night. Rough drive home.

Got back from NOLA around 11 last night. It was a spontaneous, fun trip with some good friends, but damn were those officials shitty... Oh well, it got me and 3 non-Bobcats excited about TXST basketball.

And that's what I took away from it as well. Upsetting but can't remember the last time I was pissed at a game instead of just hoping we don't look terrible on TV.
