The Ultimate Road Game...

For those of you who don't know what or where Winthrop is:
Location: Rock Hill, S.C.
Enrollment: 6,600
Conference: Big South
Nickname: Eagles
Colors: Garnet & Gold
Head Coach: Gregg Marshall
Record at WU: 167-78
Last Year: 23-8 (13-3, 1st)

Winthrop has played well all year and even early on the experts were saying very good things about them. They were very excited to get into the Tourney, but feel slighted with an 11 seed.

A lot of the talking heads have Winthrop as their Politically Correct Pick for this tournament. As Irish fans we know that the Bias against Notre Dame exists, but we are still shocked when the picks come out and ND is in Spokane. How does ND get a 6 seed in the Midwest regional and get sent to Spokane, Washington, and Louisville get a 6 seed to and get Lexington. Yes the same Lexington that is in Kentucky. The tournament committee has done its part in trying to keep fans away from the game. Will you be making the Trek?

From Notre Dame Indiana to Spokane:
Total Est. Driving Time: 27 hours, 26 minutes
Total Est. Distance: 1914.91 miles

The Winthrop team are no slouches, but does having a season with 4 "Good" losses make a tourney team. Doesn't that sound familiar? Remember ND football.

ND will need to come out playing well and bury the Eagles early. Letting any team during March Madness stick around is never a good idea and giving Winthrop added confidence may bury the Irish. The Irish are 12 points better than Winthrop, but which Irish team will show up. This is by the way, The Ultimate Road Game.
