Queue the Hoosiers Theme Song

"David put his hand in his bag, took out a stone,
slung it, and struck the Philistine on his forehead;
the stone sank into his forehead, and he fell face down on the ground."
1 Samuel 17:49

Gene Hackman doesn't know real drama. This is real drama.

What has happened in Atlanta the past few days is so far beyond ridiculous that it's bordering on complete insanity. Since the SEC expanded to 12 teams, only one #6 seed has advanced to semi-final round of the tourney, and that has only happened once. The idea of a #6 seed advancing to the finals is too silly for words.

UGA is essentially the #12 seed in this tournament. I can't prove it, but I would strongly wager that no #12 seed has ever advanced this far in any major conference tournament. Ever. What could happen tomorrow is beyond imagination or even cinema.

With that in mind, I present you with three clips from Hoosiers.

Damn paint fumes.

Unbelievable. This was Hoosiers, The Natural, etc. all wrapped into one. We need to start a petition to retire Sundiata Gaines's number now.
