You can't argue and complain about a dream... All I'm going to do is say thank you and wake up with the biggest smile on my face.
I waited 20 years for that I'm so proud of our coaches and players for delivering it. --THANK YOU!!!
True. but should have won that end of story. Spin it however you want to.

This was a VERY winnable game and to lose to Ohio sucks. At least if they had lost to UNC it would have been respectable.

Ugh...I'm sorry but this loss was very disappointing. It seemed like USF's path was set up perfectly. A 13 seed team they should beat, and then NC star breaks his wrist. This was a VERY winnable game and to lose to Ohio sucks. At least if they had lost to UNC it would have been respectable.
Ohio also BEAT #5 seed Michigan. Losing to them is no shame. They are experienced and apparently a very good oitside shooting team with a GREAT point guard. They just played better in the end than we did. NOBODY LIKES LOSING.

We played three games in five nights. The officiating was fairly even, but it was called very tight. That played into Ohio's hands, not ours. I can't even count how many of their shots bounced around the rim before falling in.
We destroyed Cal, and we beat a Temple team we were supposed to lose to. Great season. We didn't lose this one, Ohio won it.
Let's make this the start of a string of NCAA appearances.

Look yes we can be positve and be proud of our Bulls! As a 96 grad I too like many of you have waited 20 years for this so YES I am so happy but I agree with the other side too. We had it to win and we didn't and yes it is about winning. Do you think the team is like yeah we did great (a little) or are they pissed they let it get away? We may never get this opportunity again. I hope we do but it has been so long in between. Why are people so happy with mediocrity? Not saying we were mediocre but we shouldn't be satisfied - happy with the unexpected - absolutely but still disappointed we didn't stretch it further. This isn't little league where everybody gets a trophy or Tball where you don't keep score, realistic or not this team wanted to win it all and while that was a HUGE far fetched dream, winning tonight was not!
Winning tonight wasn't far fetched, but winning WEDNESDAY, FRIDAY and SUNDAY against all pretty good schools was pretty far fetched. You have to admit. We didn't play three gimme teams and being asked to win three games in basically four days is a little far fetched. I love this team as much as the next guy, and it hurts to lose, but hey, we were 2 of 3 in the NCAA tourney. Not bad for a team that most of us thought would have to overachieve to get an NIT invite.
