ADRENALINE ON HIGH Y'ALL. I wasn't nervous much yesterday, but writing the preview and this game thread? The butterflies are going, I'm a bit shaky, and I'm worried that all the bad things that can happen to Michigan State will happen in the next two hours, booting MSU out of the NCAAs. This game features the KenPom #2 (Louisville) and #3 (Good Guys) rated defenses in the nation, offenses...well, MSU's 8th, and Louisville's 111th. However, 1+1+1 = 3, and all the Cardinals need are one hot night from three to take MSU out. Good lord I'm nervous. I can't really write anymore, so here comes the disclaimer.
This is the open thread. Y'all know the rules: No slurs, no links to illegal game streams, and be cool to one another. Enjoy the game everyone.
GO GREEN, GO WHITE, BEAT LOUISVILLE.
