How far do you guys have us going in the NCAA tourney and why?
We could win the title or lose the first game. Just never know in the tourney.
This is the first time in the Ham era that we can conceivably go all the way. I just want to take it one game at a time and not get overconfident because of the ACC Title.
If I had to pick, I'd say we lose to Ohio State in the Sweet 16.
Im going to say elite 8
Dick Vitale and Digger Phelps predicted the final 4. I think we will make it to the sweet-16, but it will be a tough round two win.
We need to at least play to our seeding and make the sweet sixteen. I like the OSU matchup as well....talented team like UNC that has problems with tall/physical teams that can dig in and play D.
IMO we are going to the Championship game. This team has overcome the highest amount of adversity that I have EVER seen a team do. I think the Bonnie game will be a slower paced game to get our legs and then we explode from there. The message I heard from a player today was "We may not be the best team every day, but we can be the best team today". That alone is a HUGE statement from a coach to a player and when a player can see that it's a true statement, they believe. The question now is, do you??
I think we either lose to Cinci or make it to the final 4. Don't know why, but believe that if we can get by Cinci that we're going to make a run....
Sweet 16 losing to Ohio State.
National champs. When on, we have one of the best shooting teams in the country and always have one of the best d's in the country.
I say final 4.
If we can get past OSU into the Elite 8 I like our chances going to the championship game. Gotta walk before we run though.
if we're shooting well and executing on offense, we can beat anyone in the country. we could beat kentucky. when we don't, we can lose to many teams, like bc. we just need to continue executing on offense.
the team needs to remain focused...there's more work to be done.
Could be a magical run
If we don't make the Sweet Sixteen we failed.
I agree with this, and ehre is why:
The bracket sets up very nicely for us.
The UVA and VT games....both tiems we were dead, hell in the UVA game we were walking dead....and this team rallied and soemhow foudn a way to win. They are battletested and well coached (STFU with the Fire Ham nonsense already)
Bench...this imo is what carries teams to the promised land, and we have guys who can come off the bench and play all sorts of different roles, and that said, the most important guy is microwave jr...Miller.
Michael Snaer...here is a statement....who else would you want with the ball, down by 1, and 10 seconds left in the game? This guy is the $$$ player you need, to make your run
What I do not like:
-turnovers, we seem to get big leads, and when we should be blowing out good teams, decide its time to act like its Showtime and the ball starts flying in all sorts of directions, need to get that under control
-Giving up easy hoops...example, Zeller probably had 4 garbage baskets yesterday, where we were in position for the 'bound and he snuck in
This is a final four team, and you would be hardpressed to convince me otherwise.
I say Sweet 16. IF we get past the first game in the tournament (which is no cupcake), we can strengthen ourselves for a run. It is very hard for any team after a huge win to circle the wagons and get the next W.
We will see!
I will consider it a successful run if we make it to the Elite 8 (Better than last year and we have a ACC championship to go with an at least top 8 finish if we go that far).
I believe we will have six more wins in this tournament. They won't be pretty, but it will be fun.

I know how silly this is but, how friggin insane would it be if we went through Cincy, Ohio State, Cuse, UNC (one more time) and UK for the NCAA championship? That would be nuts!!
Honestly as long as we don't lose in the first round I don't really care. This has already been the most memorable season in FSU basketball history. Whatever happens in the tournament is just icing on the cake.
Kenny Powers: "A true champion will do whatever it takes to rise above. Because surrender is death, and death is for pussies."
The schedule sets up nicely.
We match up well against Ohio St, and if we get to the final 4 it's likely against UNC (Who we've beaten twice).
So, a lot like someone mentioned earlier...
I think we either lose to Cinci, lose to UNC in the final 4 (tough to beat them 3 times) or we lose in the NC against Kentucky/Mizzou
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or it may last a year. But eventually, it will subside. If i quit, however it will last forever.
Final Four Losing this time to UNC. Cuse will lose early like they have EVERY TIME they were a #1 seed. We will take out St. Bonnies and Cincy/UT and then meet OSU. We will give them fits and win the going outright. Only question is do we face Wisky or Vandy in the Elite 8. I hope Vandy as Wisky just seems to have our number.
