I posted on the Buffalo game thread, but it's probably better here.

ESPN's Around the Rim podcast features both coaches. Felicia is at 26:00 and Sue around 44:00. Both talk candidly about being fired from their jobs, how they re-invented themselves, having support systems, etc..

Sad that there were only 3 responses so far as this is what March Madness is about, not moaning about individual peeps hated team etc. Go Buffalo and C Mich, what a great accomplishment.

At the risk of being called a bandwagon fan, I had Buffalo pegged to win the MAC. They are that good and Coach Jack is more talented than what most fans give her credit.

Anyone that was watching the women's game this season knew that both CMU and Buffalo were very talented teams. The MAC was a very good conference this year, better than any besides the power 5 and the Big East. Buffalo should have been in before the last 8. Both teams deserved better than an 11 seed, but ironically it was the lower seed that allowed them to make the Sweet 16. Neither first round win surprised me, but I didn't expect the second round upsets. Playing, and I suspect losing to top 10 teams will not diminish their accomplishments. These are two very good teams.

It was pretty clear all season that it would be between Buffalo and CMU for the MAC title. I thought they had a good shot at first round wins, but yeah, the second round ones were a surprise. It's fun to see them do so well and I think good for the game to have underdogs show up in the tourney. And kudos to Buffalo for competing so well with SoCar until the 4th quarter. They have more than shown that they belong.

SO ...I lost a bet with Rock about how many wins Chicago would get this year. My punishment - T. Young as my avatar. Well it could be worse!

agree. It seems like the best mids always end up with a 7-10 seed which means they have to beat a #1 or #2 seed to make the sweet sixteen. Ironically it's much better to be a #11 or #12 as there always seem to be some questionable #3,4,5 seeds. Anyway it's all fun. There is also definitely some luck in getting the right draw.
