Don't get me wrong, I like Underwood and absolutely love that he has us back to relevance. That being said, I do believe that if we somehow would have won (layups go in, etc) that game, then most of us would have the opinion that we did so in spite of not making the necessary adjustments. Defensively as well as offensively. I could be wrong, but I'm thinking we'd be reading alot of "Whew, close call there. Lets get that fixed before we hit the elite 8" type comments. I can almost picture the 5000 word back and forth article on this very site!
Love this team and it was a bright spot in an otherwise shitty 12 months. I'm looking forward to more years like this going forward and hoping that in future years the intensity will match the talent.
