No not bitter (ok sort of!) but your POV is fair enough. VCU did defy the odds I guess, and as Marcellus says they did beat good teams by a good margin. Agree about Brad Stevens, he needs to take the IU job once they fire Tom Crean! He's an Indiana guy and IMO can take that program back to the elite level. Shaka is a good coach too, made a great run.Wow, bitter much?
VCU played really well and those weren't exactly "fluke" wins. They absolutely deserve credit for doing what they did and while I was skeptical of their invitation, I can't hate them too much for taking advantage of their opportunity.
I agree Shaka is a great coach and he, along with Butler's Brad Stevens, will be big names getting nice jobs in the next few years. I don't see either leaving just yet.
That was some crap basketball, and as much as I hate to admit, VCU did play some big time ball. Can't hate Shaka, he's a terrific coach.I agree VCU should have never been in the tournament to begin with, but once the selections were made it was time to play ball! And play ball VCU did! VCU beat the crap out of their first two round opponents, G-town by 18, Purdue by 18. They had one close game in FSU, and then smacked the overall number one seed Kansas in the mouth by 10! In contrast Butler was lucky they made it past either round one or two, barely getting by ODU with a last second shot, and we all know the shenanigans that were the Butler/Pitt game ending!
After last nights embarrassment of a game, clearly VCU would have played a better game than 18.8% from the floor to post a whopping 41 points, heck Kentucky/VCU would have been way more exciting to watch than that 12 year old rec league game on TV last night! That was garbage!!! Butler should be ashamed to go outside for a month after that display of sorry-arsed ball playing!
