    Well, Michigan State makes the FF - they will riot in East Lansing. IMO, teams with fans who riot (after a win or a loss) should be banned from the Tourney - losers.

    Impressive win though. When is Tubby going to make another run? They must be getting antsy at UK...

    Explain this assumption about the East Lansing faithful.

    I think it's because they've rioted in the past--didn't they do that when they won the Final 4 a few years ago?

    I think it's similar to "sofa-burning" in Morgantown...

    northern schools and pro cities tend to always do stuff like that.

    Tsk, tsk. That incident in '03 wasn't a riot. It was a student ruckus. :lol:

    (Honest, that is what the last article BB linked to called it!)

    Yep, let's punish the team for what a some drunk students did a few years back. Heck, both the men's and women's UCONN teams should have not been in the tourney by that reasoning.

    People in the north make fun of Southern people's intelligence yet act like morons whenever they win something

    The riot in East Lansing last night must have been really bad. ESPN and the other media midgets wouldn't even cover it.

    Word should leak out soon.

    The fact that it was Easter Sunday may have delayed the inevitable as most students were likely away from school.

    I didn't read about any suicide bombers in the paper this morning - I guess it won't happen ever again...
