Here's where it all went wrong...

It wasn't the Arizona game, or the mugging for the camera, or thinking that the press was invincible.

 

Nothing to do with Bad or Good Edgar.  Not ADMM running out of steam. 

 

Not even free throws.

 

It was getting the #1 ranking.

 

We played a hell of a lot better when there was a chip on the shoulder, when there was no respect, when even after winning the BE regular season the best the pundits gave us was a 2 seed.

 

For a psychologically frail team, the need to get respect pushed them.

 

Rick said it himself earlier in the season -- "Please don't move us to #1."

 

As my dad says, "They got the big head."

 

And the big head imploded Saturday.
