Pete.. gotta give it to you.. I didn't think we'd get in.

At first glance I was loving where we are placed. I don't have much respect for Clemson's program, but maybe they are a good team. I truly know nothing about them.

you did call us being in since thursday... so i'll give you that.

but we were the last team in and had a LOT of luck since then with so many bubble teams losing.

either way, i am ecstatic that we are in.

We were not necessarily the last team in, we could have been moved on the s-curve for conf. matchup considerations --- after all there were 8 BE teams in

Pete, you have every reason to say "Ha, ha, ha...............ha". I was totally wrong. I didn't think we had any chance of getting in given how we played this year. I still don't think we deserve to be in, but somebody out there obviously thinks so. I don't think we were a shoe in, but that's not important at this point. What matters is we're in, 4 years in a row. What happened between '00-and '04 when we were there Pete???? Can't wait for the Clemson game!!! Let's get her done boys and girls. And well done Not-so-crazy Pete.

Has anyone else noticed that our first round game is being played on Good Friday and if we win we will then be playing on Easter Sunday being an Augustinian University and all

Hmmm.. good call on the Good Friday and Easter Sunday games. I hope this doesn't impact Scottie's availability. He is very religious and has shown up late to games because of his church schedule.

Good point, anonymous, I believe that happened in the Pittsburgh game, and it did dramatically decrease his productivity.
