      SCARED. This is the type of team that always gives ND fits. They will smother our shooters. Need Ty Nash to have a good game inside to create some space, and the mid range game needs to produce. I'm looking at you Scott Martin

        Im a little nervous about this one too. Our big time perimeter players matched up against there stingy D will be very exciting.

        I hope that our virtual home court advantage will give us the edge.

                It all comes down to stopping Chris Singleton. Dude's a beast and a bad matchup. Carleton Scott will be the key to ND winning or ND going home.

                  I'm nervous about this one. This is the perfect team to beat Notre Dame. Ben Hansbrough is gonna need to be at his best today, and not just in the scoring column. He's gonna need to make smart passes and know when not to take the shot (unlike how he played against Louisville).

                  Go Irish. Beat Seminoles.

                            Wish Mr. Lynch could sing the national anthem prior to tip. Oh and Momma of course.

                              Due to the recruiting battle?

                                  Yes sir. Figured we could set the tone before the game even started. I'd like to own them in every manor possible because of the dirtiness of that recruiting battle.

                                    They've won a few recruiting battles lately. We definitely came out ahead overall, but we still came out with a few recruiting black eyes from Jimbo.

                                    I think we end up playing them FB at a bowl game within the next 4 years.

                                        The United Center sounds like a library. I don't know why the ND fans didn't hoot and holler for VCU; hopefully the stadium is all Irish and they are saving their voices for the next game. We'll need a good crowd.

Btw one of these days Atkins' inexperience is going to hurt us, he is always so scared when he has the ball in his hands.
