Is that SU has three games of experience this season without him in the lineup. They have been there before this season, and know what to expect, and how to adjust. If ANY other player (aide from MCW or BMK) was out, I wold be very very worried. This team hasnt had to play without Scoop, Dion, CJ, Kris, etc. There would be a steep learning curve, at the worst possible time.
At least we can take some solace in knowing that we are in a position we have been in before. And at least we have one seemingly easy game to find a rhythm.
I wasnt convinced this team was going to the Final Four even with Fab. Although I now wonder, with all the crap that has been thrown at this team all year, they get the "EFF YOU" attitude, kick some ass, and find a way there. Not likely, but it would be one hell of a ride.
Might be the first time ever a #1 seed is an "upset" pick to make the Final 4.
