I would love for this team to keep winning but they have exceeded all my expectations regardless of the Louisville outcome.
Altman has a gift of knowing what to do and who to put in every situation. The guy is a true X's and O's coach. I'm so glad all of those other choices said no to us. We have the right guy and I hope he's a lifer and builds a true top10-15 program.
Ducks have exceeded everyones expectations. But then I remember there were a select few of us that were saying early on (before Artis got hurt) that we were a Sweet Sixteen team. I always felt we were when we came to play and had our act together. Go Ducks!!! It is great getting to play the overall #1 seed.
Enjoy Life, it has an expiration date.
I remember saying the Ducks could run with anyone in the nation prior to Artis going down. When we got up to #10. Most people agreed. This unit is very good and Altman is brilliant. I'm glad our boys found chemistry again and at the perfect time.
They looked sloppy and lacked confidence during that short, but painful losing streak. We've come full circle and we're playing the best ball of our season right now. If we play a well disciplined, blue collar game against UL we can beat them. We definitely have to play all four quarters.
UL is the kind of team that can put points up quickly. Even if we were up by fifteen with two minutes left I would still be uneasy against Louisville. They are so good at playing offense via their defense. If that makes any sense? Lol. Meaning they can take our mistakes and flip them on us in a heart beat. We have to put it all out there.
While I completely agree with the sentiment, I still hate the timing of this post. I hope they're still unsatisfied, hungry, feeling disrespected and remain on a mission.

I understand that I just wanted us duck fans to go into the louisville game optimistic but understand we had a great season regardless.
Remember when they were picked to placed like 7th in PAC-12? Haha they sure proved them wrong.
I just hope Altman's has guys like Kazemi, Woods and Carter running screens on Siva and Russ Smith when they run their full court press. I'd love to see Siva and/or get completely stopped by a screen from Kazemi to free up Artis/Loyd.
The basketball we are playing right now is physical, fleet and ferocious. And everyone is contributing! It's likea bad-ass batalion out there. Louisville had better have their PF Flyers on, 'cause the Ducks will be hyped to rumble, son!
I agree that the Ducks have succeeded expectations and the season is a success no matter what happens from this point forward, but I too hope that they are not satisfied because they have a chance to do something really special. As long as Kazemi is rebounding, Dotson is shooting, Emory is beasting and Artis, Loyd and Singler play reasonably well the Ducks will be in any game against anyone. There are no unbeatables out there.
GO DUCKS ---- keep this thing going.
Just bought two tickets for the louisville game in Indianapolis. Only a 4 hour drive from Detroit.
When Oregon is in the midwest, you go, you know?
