Underdogs


The most positive side effect of Villanova's two losses to Creighton is that they have stalled significant winning streaks and made it so the team has never had a winning streak of more than six games in Big East regular season play, thus slowing any  significant buzz the team would have collected if they had streaks of ten or more games. It is those losses that allow idiots like Doug Gottlieb to say that Villanova is a "matchup team" should be a four seed despite the fact that an objective eye would say that they are substantially better than that. Yesterday during Villanova's game, Dana O'Neil observed that Villanova has substantially less buzz surrounding them than any very good team in quite some time.

And you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way.
