Default 8:1

I just saw on ESPN we have 8:1 odds of winning it all. Take while you can get it!

Well, the odds do kinda diminish once there's only 4 teams left, and you're one of them. Seems equal odds for all 4 teams would be 4:1, wouldn't it??

I can't remember the odds they showed on SportsCenter but ours were significantly lower. Gonzaga had the best odds.

I put money on us back in January when it was 150:1, and then doubled down in February when it moved to 300:1.

Gonzaga has better odds than UNC because they are perceived as having as having an easier opening game. No respect!

The way my elementary math teacher taught me, we have a 25% chance just like the other 3 teams. 4 teams left and we are 1 of them.

I'm perfectly fine with that - they can disrespect us right up to being shocked at the result on April 3

Four games in a row where the odds meant NOTHING. We can be like NC State back in '83!!

In the 1983 NCAA Championship game, NC State had to beat a huge favorite Houston team with Olajuwon and Drexler. And they did it!

I'd rather be like UCONN just a few years back when they also beat the 10-2-3-4 seeds.

In fact, our postseason run to this point has been eerily similar to theirs.
