Butler and Duke to Square Off for NCAA Men's Basketball Championship

Recommended Posts

Well, that bogus charge they called ended up looming just as large as I thought it would at the time.

There were numerous fouls not called in this game...Scheyer was fouled on a 3 and it wasn't called.

Butler owned the FT line in this game...The officiating was more on their side, if there was a side it was on.

If the game was called tighter, Butler has way more fouls. They are a physical defensive team...love the way they play.

My thought as well.

Among any calls/non-calls, there are those that just stick out more; some junctures are more critical than others.

Now, that was a game. Don't care much for Duke but they have some special players. Butler gave a great fight too. Wasn't expecting it to be close at all after Duke blew out WVU.

But that was an either-or call. It's one thing if they call NOTHING there. It's another that they wiped the 2 off the board and then the extra foul shot. Especially when the correct call was a blocking foul, and it was a fairly obvious one.

Yes, it was fairly obvious when it is replayed...Not so obvious in real time.

Again, Butler had the officiating edge in this game...Can't really deny that.

In a span of about 14 months, my three least favorite teams all won their titles.

For a Maryland native that also roots for the Capitals, that would be four teams, I assume. Yankees, Steelers, Duke, and the Penguins (and North Carolina, if you also count them).

I can't really be angry. It's like the Yankees. You keep bringing out talent like that, and it's just a matter of time before they win games when it counts.

I'm not saying "Duke got all the calls." I'm saying Duke got THAT call, and at the time, I had a feeling it was going to be a huge blown call. Just disappointed I was right is all.

Go on and get your celebrate on, ya big lug.

It has been horrible. I thought this was going to be a good sports year with the underdog saints winning first. :(

And now I have to talk some **** to bandwagon duke fans on facebook. At least the north carolina fans are nice after last year, and all the fans I know go or went to the university.

Can't celebrate to be honest...I am still a wreck...I will be in more of a celebratory mood tomorrow.
