Tournament is already shaping up to be the Year of the Upstart. I am VERY wary of Montana after seeing all these close early matchups and upsets. Montana is probably gaining some confidence to as they watch Robert Morris, Murray State, Sam Houston play the high majors tough...they have to like their chances.
Or you could view it the other way. With all of these close games early, we're due for some not so close games.
The Lobos have gotten the "A" game from everyone they played this year. They are used to it and know how to handle it.
Maybe we will be the "upstart" of all "upstarts" as the nation finally sets eyes on the Lobos as they wreck havoc on the tournament.
worry somewhere else. today is about good vibes.
only so many upsets can happen. HOPE FOR THEM NOW. and none tonight
... also, forewarned is fore-armed!
Listining to you Ps5335, I think I know what the P, and the s for that matter, stand for in you user name. I just finish saying this on another thread and I will repeat it again on this thread and knowing this team they are saying it too, "BBBBBRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNGGGGGGGG IIIIIIIITTTTTTT!" Montana go ahead and Bring It, cuz your gonna need it!
Yea...I think this actually helps you guysIf your team was perhaps lookin past the Griz...they aren't now. Now I'm down to Griz playing perfect and UNM with cold shooting or foul trouble.
In 2006 there were a ton of upsets...that's the year Billy Packer said small schools don't belong. Maybe it's just one of those days where there are a ton of upsets. Fingers crossed.

Just watching too many overated Big East and SEC teams
I think it's pretty straightforward. UNM has superior athletes, plays tougher defense and has multiple weapons. If they play in control, minimize turnovers, and run their offense well they should win pretty convincingly. If they turn the ball over, get sucked into a lot of one-on-one and standing around with Montana's A.J., and if throw up a lot of questionable three pointers anything is possible. Ask Vandy.
We should not be nervous. Look at this game as just another game against CSU or Utah, but on a neutral court. C'mon, we win by at least 10 if not more.
Too many people are nervous. We have prepared all year for this game. We will not blow it.
Unless the upsets are due to bad seedings (always a possibility) each game is independent of every other one. Whether Murray State wins or loses makes no difference in the Lobos' game.
There is no such thing as "The Law of Averages." - It is a completely mistaken application of the "The Law of Large Nunmbers." I am in the process of writing a long screed on this, but with the way the tax season is shaping up I won't get it done unitl well after the season. Maybe I'll just write it and hold it in reserve for next season. (It will address the issue of why Pomeroy's rating that hold the Lobos in such relatively low regard have a singificant theoretical flaw when it comes to predicting Wins and Losses in individual games.)
If Montana were a team to be easily intimidated (by UNM's ranking and seeding) they would not have been able to come back against Weber St.
Man, I hope Saturday's game is first thing in the morning. This waiting until the last game sucks.
