Fine, college basketball, I'll pay attention to you. You're
Hello again Mr. Battlefield Earth.
I still think it should be known as the Giant Snatch.
Who should be known as the Giant Snatch? UAB or Memphis? I vote Memphis because those pussies have a weak schedule.
Not only did they beat the hell out of Texas and Michigan St, they played games in the regular season against 8 teams that made it into the NCAA tournament (Georgetown, UConn, Oklahoma, Gonzaga, Arizona, USC, Tennessee, Siena and Austin Peay). I should also point out that they beat every one of those teams except for Tennessee, which happened to be the #2 team in the country at the time. Memphis's SOS is decent at 27, but their RPI is 3rd in the nation, trailing only UNC and Tennessee.
Now they just beat the crap out of #20 Michigan St. and #7 Texas. So that makes teams that are currently ranked #6, #7, #8, #17, and #20 (plus a few others that were ranked when Memphis played them) that they have pretty much had their way with.
And….they are about to play in the Final Four. So yeah, great call on the weak schedule. What a bunch of pussies!
