  1. Don't agree with Voepel on the downside of upsets in the tourney. That's what makes it so special. That said I thought Sim's comments were very mature and introspective. I also thought that Griner's comments at the presser yesterday were pretty mature given the context. Only Mulkey ends up looking bad in this deal as well she should.

    I think either Louisville or Tennessee can take Cal down. Will be interesting to see which Card team shows up tonight.
