I like it. WVU is a raw, athletic team with an annoying fat meanish baby-faced coach. If Huggins loses, I will do a gleeful dance in my living room and it will be icing on the cake that Bucknell does it. But WVU is a strong team with a rich athletic history and no academic filters. A tough nut to crack.

They know how to deal with snow in Buffalo. You should be fine.

WVU board not giving Bucknell a prayer. They feel we haven't played anybody and no way we can handle their pressure. Very little respect.

Welcome to Buffalo. For those of you thinking of coming up, here are some random thoughts:

1. If you've been here a few years ago, you might not recognize it now. Sure, the weather is as lousy as ever, but downtown has really developed and the city is used to this, having hosted the NCAA before. For getting around, check: http://buffalonews.com/2017/03/12/cabs-train s-auto... Several new hotels (including one that's part of Harbor Center, which is directly attached to the arena).

2. If you have trouble getting hotels nearby, as a last resort there are plenty in Niagara Falls (NY and ON) that should be available this time of year.

3. Speaking of Niagara Falls, if you haven't seen them you should. Yeah, it's kinda touristy, but you should see it once. But if you do, bring your passport; view is much, much better from the Canadian side.

4. And while you're there, believe it or not that area is Canada's Napa Valley, with lots of wine tours. The wine itself is plonk, but it is one of the world's best for ice wine, worth trying once. And just a few miles, whoops, I mean kilometers, north is Niagara-on-the-Lake. If you're into quaint and charm, that's the place to go.

5. Overall, if the forecast holds true it might slow things a bit but not close anything; it's usually the squalls of the lake that get the national publicity. Just another day here.

Wow, I just checked out their forum. I hope WVU's team is just as brash as their fans on that forum. No respect whatsoever. I'm happy to know that our guys are not happy with simply making the tournament. They expect to win the first rd game and are confident in themselves! & a lil bit of info...I think we're going to see more of what Sestina is capable of. WVU's freshman Konate and Sestina battled each other in the State Playoffs in high school. It was Nate's final high school game. I'm hoping for an extended stay up in Buffalo this week. Go Bison!

It is disconcerting that our ball handling skills have been an Achilles heel. That said; pride cometh before a fall.

Vegas also disrespecting us at -14. Bigger line than most other 3/4/5 seeds. I like the disrespect

I don't know if the WVU board is universally overconfident. There seems to be a fair amount of angst and worry too - not necessarily about Bucknell (though I detect at least some honest curiosity) but about WVU's shortcomings. I get the sense that some of the fans there would not be surprised to be disappointed.

Pomeroy has us losing by 13 (80-67). He gives us a 12% shot to win.

Huggins comments re: seeding/matchup:

He says WVU is going to fly instead of bus to Buffalo.
