Default What Does It Feel Like to Win a MBB NCAA Tournament Game?

Any old timers on the board who could provide insight into what it feels like to win a game and advance in the Big Dance? I've never experienced that feeling in my life, and I'd like to before I die. This is a serious question, not a swipe at our basketball program. March Madness is my favorite sporting event all year, but it's also extremely despressing. I'd love to hear about the excitement back in the early 70s.

Sadly, even the great McGuire teams in the 70s didn't make any noise at tournament time. Of course, our best team (1970) went 25-3 and 14-0 in the ACC didnt even make the NCAA tournament because only the conference tournament champion got a bid to the NCAA tourney.

The NCAA changed the rule the next year I beleive, but of course we won the ACC tournement in 1971 and got a first round bye. We lost to Pennsylvania the 2nd round (which was the Sweet 16 back then, because the NCAA only took 24 teams).

We won our first round games in 1972 and 1973, but lost in the 2nd round (Sweet 16) both years.

We'v only been to the NCAA tournament 5 times since then (74, 89, 97, 98, and 04) and we lost in the first round each year.

Funny - we have made the Sweet 16 three times, but we have only won two NCAA tournament games . . . ever.

It is an absolutely ridiculous thing to contemplate - our futility in college basketball.

They changed the rule in 1975. In 1974 the ACC had 3 teams in the top 5 at one time during the year. That year Maryland may have been the best team in country (it was basically NC State, Maryland, and UCLA above all others) but did not get to go to the NCAA (Very Similar to 1970 when South Caroling was a top 5 team all year)......

I don't think you can claim Maryland as the best team in the country. They were definitely very good, but they got beat by NC State 3 times. Can't claim to be the best if you lose every game you play to the conference champ (both regular season and tournament) and that team happens to have won the NCAA championship.

1971 Southern Cal team helped get that rule changed too. They lost 2 games all year (both to UCLA) and got as high as #2 in the polls.

This. We beat Kentucky twice that year as well as Cincy (who were ranked way up there) and many pundits thought we had a good chance to make the Final Four. Then... Coppin State happened.

I understand completely.

Grew up pulling for them and Winthrop. UNC has definitely dropped down the list since going to USC, but I still pull for Winthrop (as long as they aren't playing us). I could give perspective from the mid-major standpoint, but it's not a good comparison to the power conference standpoint.

Can't go that far. While I don't like UNC nearly as much as I used to, my hatred of Duke persists. Duke is on the same level as Clemson for me.

Anybody remember Furman in 1974? I do! I believe our last NCAA Tourney win was 1973. YIKES!
