Gotta have this one. Can't afford to have bubble-watchers making comparisons between UConn and ND and pointing out a UConn season sweep.

Does anybody know where I can get tickets for this one?

Tuesday night was a bad night for bubble teams, so it was a good night for the Irish.

Cincy, Florida, Minnesota, Illinois all lost to non bubble teams.

Doesn't mean much if we don't beat the Thugskies

ugly game, bad free throw shooting, horrible press offense

WE WIN, lets beat Marquette or win one in NY to solidify our bid
