MSU or UNC??

27 posts in this topic

should be a great champ game. I'am big ten guy and despise the Big 12 living in IOwa. LOts of bit ten haters in this neck of the woods. all the media about how the big ten didn't deserve 7 teams and was not as good etc/. Bolonga/ I always thought MSU was a solid team-- without a healthy Raymor Morgan. Man, did that dude come to play.

Latest line in UNC -7.5. If I wasn't married, I'd take that to the bank,, especially playing in the motor city.

Go SPARTANS!!!!

I think they beat the 2 best teams allready in Louisville and UCONN.--

I have to admitt I am very surprised MSU made it this far. The last game we played them in and missed a ton of free throws and 3's they barely beat us. It goes to show good teams like that just know when to turn it on. If you look at their last game against UNC I would say they don't have much of a chance, but they have proved me wrong before so who knows.........

I have watched the past few MSU games and of course they have knocked off a couple of #1's, they are really on a hot streak. I think they are going to pull off the upset, they have the home crowd and a ton of momentum. UNC is suppose to be here, MSU not - If they do win, they will knock off 3 #1's in a row. Has that ever been done before?

Everyone said there was no way UNC could hang with UConn. If I were a betting man...MSU is rolling. Two days can make a huge difference though. whistle

The first time the 2 teams played MSU didn't have Goran Suton inside against Hansbrough. It could be a very different game with him in the line up. GO SPARTANS!!!

This should be an awesome game. Both team shoot the 3 pretty well, both teams have bog boddies to bang with and rebound... I am going to go with UNC. I just think they are a bit more athletic. UNC 84-MSU 78.

MSU is gonna send some of those 7' stiffs sitting on the end of the bench to knock the snot out of Hansborough. Those guys get a free college education for doing one thing, hard fouling the other teams big guys. That Lawson is gonna go for a breakaway dunk and get hit so hard hes gonna think about taking up tennis. MSU pulls it off, 78-73. I cant beleive no analysts are picking the Spartans. First Louisville was gonna beat them then UConn was and so now Carolina is. MSU has destiny on their side. Destiny and some streetballing brothers who are gonna hack UNC so hard they will get foggy headed.

My heart says MSU but my head says UNC. They always say to bet with your head, not your heart. I just can't stand Tyler Hansborough. The only thing that could be worse is if the TWolves end up drafting him. Go Spartans!!!!!

I'm in the same boat as Flash - I sure want MSU to win but if I had to bet my neck I'd go with UNC.

I put 25 on State to win. My bookie is paying +380 on the moneyline. Thats a no brainer. MSU will probably loose. But............. GO STATE! MSU by 5

Royal beatdown in progress. 55 points in the first half, 21 point lead for UNC. That line is looking ridiculous right now.

I don't care that they just beat two #1 seeds in the last two games. You just can't keep it up against this caliber.

If you keep doubling down in blackjack, you may win 3-5 times in a row, but eventually u will be broke.

    • Dave, if this many folks are not understanding the question, than maybe the question is unclear.  So rather then rant about it perhaps try rephrasing it.
    •     I believe you said it was "libertarian" drivel, actually, so you dismissed it out of hand...          
    •   You posted about neither.     But if you would read the article, my commentary and TJ's commentary you would know that's not really what the article is about.     You have to be kidding, right? Just about everyone who has an opinion on politics at all is this sort of person. Do you look at social media at all?
    •     Ok, now getting back to whether Trump will win the War on Drugs, do you think he will take any steps at all to decriminalize drugs, such as reclassifying marijuana, and recognizing state laws and programs designed to move towards the decriminalization of drugs?   Or do you think he will take steps to protect vested interests, such as prisons and the pharmaceutical. industry?   Just going off his rhetoric and his choice for a drug czar, I'm guessing he much prefers the latter, and will end up spending a bunch of taxpayer's money, and actually lose ground by continuing on with the brute force/criminalization approach.        
    • Because at the time, I don't have anything better to do.   I posted about the article, and you wanted to talk about the topic.  I posted about the topic and you want to discuss the article.    Which is it?     I support a particular candidate because their positions, taken as a whole, are preferable to me as compared to the other candidate(s).   In a few years I get to do it over.     I don't think there are really that many ardent "rah rah for my party" type folks out there, in spite of what we see on TV, or the occasional people we meet.     So the article is basically drivel, as I said before, based on a false premise.   
    • Borch I just signed up Ryan, Morgan, and me but I only see my name listed in the summary. Do my kids not show up because they don't have hso usernames?  Or did I not enter it right?     Please let me know how to fix it and I'll do so.  Thanks!
    •   Because I think self reflection is good for all of us from time to time.   If you don't wan't to discuss this article, why do you persist in posting here?           No one is disputing that at all. The premise of the author's article is in regards to the hypocrisy of then justifying everything your chosen candidate or party does blindly while vilifying the other candidates or party. It's the "all in" sports like mentality that is being discussed here.  
    • There is a really excellent book called "The Righteous Mind" that approaches this tribalist mindset from an evolutionary psychology standpoint. The author, Jonathan Haidt, does a remarkable job of unpacking why people persist in truly irrational defense of the indefensible - when it's their team doing the stupid stuff. I highly highly highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in lessening the hyperpartisan idiocy we have today.

      The trouble is that the closed-off mindset that lends itself to reflexive support for Obama/Hillary/Trump/whomever also tends to preclude any serious engagement in self-examination that the book is designed to provoke. Really good read, though.
    •   I get what your saying here but I think what Dave is talking about is the willingness of some to blindly follow, without question, their party or candidate. I saw this first hand during the primary with some of my own relatives, for example. I had a SIL who was a huge Bernie backer. The things she said about Hillary were worse than anything said here. As far as she was concerned, Hillary should be tarred and feathered and ran out on a rail. Then Bernie loses the nomination. She then became Hillary's biggest defender. Everything she said about her during the primary was instantly washed away. Even her own husband called her out. She wasn't simply voting for her because she found Trump worse. That's understandable. She defended or at least tried to deflect the issues with Hillary when just a few months prior, she said things that would make even Cooter or Bill say, "man you're harsh on her."   I don't think this is a new phenomenon. I also don't think it's widespread. Like everything else, access to more and diverse information just makes it possible to hear more about it than before. I think human nature causes people to internalize candidates and/.or elected officials. It's a "if you're critical of my candidate, you're critical of me," kind of thinking.   I don't fault anyone for voting for a candidate that one feels best represents their line of thinking. Or even defending their candidate from detractors. I don't think that is what Dave is talking about here. It's also the flipping of political opinions just because the candidate you voted for or support is supporting certain positions. For example, many conservatives opposed BHO's stimulus, including myself. It didn't work  as promised and we just added more on to the debt. So on the campaign trail, Trump also spoke of a stimulus plan that was even more expensive than BHO's and  those same people not only supported it but are justifying it. In summary, one can vote for a candidate without defending everything that person does
