The six year drought is over! We will return to the NCAA tournament to take on the Creighton Blue Jays in Greensboro Friday. This was probably the 2nd most difficult draw we could get. Creighton is a very strong 8 seed, in my opinion, and if we can somehow get past them we will face the UNC tarheels in their back yard in the 3rd round.
A first round win over a good Creighton team would be huge. If we lose to Creighton, I hope UNC is at least in our session on the first day. North Carolina is one of my favorite teams, and I hope to get to see them play in person, one way or another. Last time I had a chance to do so, Gottfried screwed it up by losing to a God awful Oregon team in Maui.
Game time and TV coverage will be announced in the next few days. Alabama's official website has a link that purports to allow season ticket holders to request tickets, but of course it isn't working and the deadline is 5pm tomorrow. I guess I will call down there and deal with those idiots first thing in the morning.
