I thought Baylor had a chance to win this but never in my wildest dreams did I see it being a blowout from the word go

Amazing performance

Who has been consistently better in the tournament recently? Villanova? That's the only team I can thing of with a great argument

In what way is Villanova not slam dunk indisputably better than Gonzaga in the tourney recently? They have two rings in the last 4 tournaments that have been staged before this one.

Yeah I agree I just meant that's pretty much it, no one else is consistently making deep runs like Gonzaga is. Maybe Michigan too I guess but either way it's a really short list. People treat them like they're still getting bounced in the second round every year or something.

Kinda depends on what your definition of "better" is, because if your goal is to win the tournament then the answer is any recent champion.

I get it, all this can change in an instant, Virginia lost to a 16 seed and won it all the year after. But this is going to be real hard to come back from.

They've been to the final game 2x in last 5 years, have a top 10 recruiting pipeline, and have probably 3 of 5 starters returning, including Drew Timme who Kenpom has best player in the country (though he struggled today). I think they'll get over the hump eventually, just some RNG to this crap with single elimination. If they get another one-and-done of Suggs talent level, they'll win 30 games next year and be odds on favorite to go to the final four again.

I edited this into another post and then it got lost but Dean Smith was a choker forever until he wasn't. If you have great teams every year you will probably break through eventually, single elimination tournaments are goofy

Those Bliss teams really weren’t bad, although I think Drew only inherited one or two scholarship players since everyone was allowed to transfer out. Though in retrospect they underachieved, judging by Lucas and Roberts becoming all-Americans after they left.

Boy though, I thought a Baylor blowout was possible, especially given that Gonzaga had to deal with all the extra physical/emotional exhaustion of the nailbiter in the final four + the weight of completing a perfect season....but I didn't think it would actually happen!

Holy poo poo!

Yeah, same. That was nuts. Baylor just outgunned them from the getgo, Gonzaga couldn't keep them off the boards.

....That might've been me? I don't recall having a reputation as "the baylor bitch guy" but I said it a few times in another life, and I don't remember anyone else saying it....

Anyway I stopped posting for a while after the Briles poo poo for Obvious Reasons (gently caress Art Briles) and between the sports results and Real Life poo poo I just didn't have it in me to post about sports a lot for a few years.

National championship's enough to pull me back out for a bit, I guess.

I mean, I know Baylor everything for a while there might lead you to believe this is not that bad, but it really wasn't any better than the guy before.
