Cheaters have every excuse, don't they? You guys should be cheering for UM right now, fab five didn't cheat. They just wanted to take their dates for pizza.....

The University had jack shit to do with it. Calipari probably knew, but no one in the admissions office had a fucking clue. How can they be expected to independently verify the validity of one out of 25,000 student's SAT score?
I guarantee you Tom Izzo has had a player on his roster at some point in time who had no business being in college.
When a player's athletic skills are worth millions of dollars, they are going to play Div. 1 one way or another. David Stern is as much to blame as anyone else.

Calapari was a known cheater and your university hired him. Unless you think his other vacated final four was just a misunderstanding too. So tired of scandals being rationalized. PSU, OSU, USC, Michigan, Memphis....
Actually, he didn't cheat at UMASS either. Marcus Camby took money from an agent. Calipari had fuck all to do with it.
I've been worried about Memphis, but realized it is more a fear of the unknown. Memphis played some good non-con teams and lost ... We have no idea how good they really are. And it is the NCAA Tournament.
What has calmed me down is hearing how Memphis needs to dictate the tempo to win. I think that is a fallacy. One of the great things about Izzo teams is their malleability, they can play and win at any tempo, against any style. Granted, we do struggle against high-tempo, ultra-talented teams (UNC those years, Memphis in '08).
Memphis can win if they out hustle us and create turnovers. Memphis can win if we play lazy defense and fail to rebound. But you can say that about any opponent.
It doesn't seem to matter who State plays this year. We all sweat everyone to the end because our guys seem to find a way to keep it close.
Its five o'clock somewhere.
Wow what bad luck..... Vacated 2 final fours and neither were his fault!
Marcus Camby (UMASS) takes money from an agent: "Season vacated. Fucking cheaters."
Derrick Rose fakes SAT score to get into college: "Season vacated. Fucking cheaters."
Corey Maggette (Duke) takes money from an agent: "WOOO LOOK AT OUR FINAL FOUR BANNER!"
Darrell Arthur (Kansas) fails every math class and has grades changed in high school: "WOOO NATIONAL CHAMPIONS LOOK AT OUR BANNERS!"
That's how the NCAA rolls.
NCAA doesn't award D1-FBS championships.
Yup that sums it up.....we can build a lead and suddenly it's a 8 pt game in garbage time because we get lazy on the court. This team is just a grind it out team no matter who they play.
Cal, and Rose as a result, are the only thing that has made Memphis relevant. But, they are also the cause of a vacated FF. Are you defending them to legitimize the only reason anybody has paid any attention to UM? Or do you genuinely care about them?
Win or lose...all I hope for is a good game....nobody gets hurt.
Then...reload for next year...
Wow!!! Good half of basketball...
The triangle and 2 got us back in the game...
Thugball / streetball got you back in.
All that matters is a win by 1....fuck you.....racist...

I mean, I'm not a fan of Byrd, Costello, or Guana, but Im not racist. I have a lot of white friends.
Just like I asked, which of your bigs will handle ours?
Nix and Payne combined for 27 points and 18 rebounds, while yours combined for 6 points and 4 rebounds.
I hate to be "that guy" but that one was pretty easy to figure out.

Street ball is great for highlights, like the rejection on AP. But street ball can't win 'em all.
