  1. REMATCH — Mich State ??? We shall see and guarantee the outcome will be DIFFERENT …

  2. I was happy to see Louisville get beat, even though I don’t like North Carolina. I still remember North Carolina holding the ball so much before the shot clock.

  3. We will never make it to final four with the attitude this team has right now. No effort.
