Re: What an embarassment, UC loses
Upsets happen and do so a lot in the post-season conf. tournies. I was a bit shocked to see the Bearcts go down to a 212-RPI team (or near 212).
What gets me are Coach Huggs comments on the Bob Huggins WLW show earlier in the week. Huggs was put out by an expert's opinion that UC would probably be a #6 seed in the Big Dance. He went on and on about being one of only two teams in D-I who had lost all of their games to teams that were higher than #50 in the RPI (Syracuse being the other) and how the expert was not so smart. Of course Huggs was "marketing" a high seed for his team as all coaches do. But to lose to South Fla. soon after ripping into the expert for saying they deserve a #6 seed kind of made me chuckle. They will be lucky IMO to get a #6 seed now. It is always "what have you done lately" and that loss may cause a serious dent in their seeding.
Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
