MVC with two Final Fours in six seasons! When will they stop treating the conference as an afterthought? Congrats to Loyola. Now go beat those Wolverines!

If Michigan is hitting shots like they were against Texas A&M, this will be a tall task for the Ramblers. However, if Michigan is shooting like they did against Florida State, this game is very winnable.

Will be interesting to see how the Ramblers defend Wagner. He can hit shots all over the court but also post you up. I don't think Krut will be able to keep up with him all around the perimeter. I think the Ramblers take a similar approach as they did vs Nevada and play a smaller lineup of Custer-Richardson-Townes-Ingram-Jackson most of the game.

Good luck Ramblers. I think you have a great shot to win this and keep rolling.

For anyone considering going, there is a 32-hour Chicago to San Antonio train for only $112. The Texas Eagle departs Chicago daily at 145pm with stops in Joliet (240), Blo-No (404), & St Louis (755) before arriving in San Antonio the following day at 955pm.

Wednesday train gets you to SA Thursday night. Ditto Thursday train for Friday night.

I'm hoping Loyola can get the Michigan big man into foul trouble early. And if they can hit 40%'ish from 3's, they've got a chance.

Come on Ramblers!

I hope everyone involved with Loyola chooses to go. I couldn't go to Wichita State's Final Four and I regret it, who knows if I'll ever get the opportunity to go again. A friend told me if the finances are too low, a Final Four trip is sell all your belongings territory. Based on some people's thoughts on their Final Four experience, I'm inclined to believe that friend now.

I cashed in all my airline miles and hotel points to get to the Tennessee game in Dallas. Totally worth it, but now I'm scrounging for cash to pay for this trip. Can't miss it... just wish this were an Indianapolis year.

This one should be good. Two teams that play similar styles. This is easily the best most talented team Loyola has faced so far. How well Krutwig does against Wagner and Robinson will be key. Play tight D Force tough shots rebound and take smart shots on offense. Keep sharing the ball. This is going to require a nearly flawless effort to pull out a win. They just need to focus on making the plays they need to make to finish one point better. Go Ramblers!
