Point is, Holtmann created a bit of a fiction to help motivate his team

It won't be hate or fiction when we go against Gonzaga! We have our work cut out for us! (Feeling a bit frustrated watching the first 3 Wrestlebucks lose their Semi-final matchups and Penn State overtake us).

Whatever stirs them up!  Most folks need an edge, even if they have the better team.  Thinking about disrespect for some reason seems to work better than thinking about the more game related stuff.

Go Bucks!!!

Beat everyone, in every sport, all the time!!!

We have a chance.

Even with the 40 3-point attempts, that was the best our offense has looked in a long time against a pretty decent team. And the team is as well rested as it can possibly be for a 2nd round game. 

Saturday will be a bad day to be a bulldog.

He ain't even stretch doe!!

Let's hope that by about 10PM tomorrow night, Gonzaga is gone-zaga... See what I did there? GO BUCKS!

Keep it classy Chris

LOLz, get lost.

It’s a great thing any time the know-nothing media is called out.

I don't like the bias of sports announcers. I miss Tom Hamilton doing some of our big ten bb games.  A good announcer who only showed bias to the team who hired him. Yes he went to the school up north.  Need motivation listen to his top ten calls on YouTube. I now have to turn my volume off to watch most bb games but that's the cost of living in Texas and watching on big10 network.

I may not be the sharpest crayon in the box but I'm one of the most colorful.

So basically we're the basketball version of Michigan State now.

I'm okay with it, as long as we're not Michigan.

These things work for sub-par coaches in their first couple of years. I’m on the side that’s thinking that Holtmann is a good enough coach to teach better players and keep them in a successful position in the tourney year in and year out.

Man that is an smooth header photo for this article. Holtmann looks like such a pimp right here.

Wonder if he turned around and told those two to get a room.

The two guys slow dancing behind him is totally confusing to me, haha. 

(thinking it was during one of the Sr Day speeches and they were just goofing around)

How about "Those buckeyes are bunch of sissies, they never take it to the rim, too afraid of what might happen.  I bet they don't score more than 20 points from the paint.  Pansies" - Insert Famous ESPN writer here.

The Zags are gonna be a tough one. Wouldn't it be the best if the Bucks can point at the scoreboard at the end and smile. Just be crickets from that side of the press.  GO BUCKS!

Why shouldn’t we win, and why should we be afraid if Gonzaga. We’ll be fine, Go Bucks!
