UConn (duh), WV and Pitt will all make the Final Four.


Years from now, Marquette will be the answer to a trivia question about the greatest UConn team of all times.

west virginia, chance... but not a good one. you can never rule out a team with so many good shooters... they get on a hot streak and they can make a run, much like last year. but don't bet the house on it.

pitt? would have to have one weak ass bracket for them to get there. stranger things have happened.

and not for nothing, i'll take the ray allen team or the richard hamilton team over this team. heck, i might even take the emeka okafor/ben gordon team.

uconn will deffinetly be on my final four short list, though... which, for the record, is this...

duke
uconn
gonzaga
memphis
florida
villanova
michigan state
random big east team that no one's expecting... i.e. wvu, georgetown... some big east team that not many looked at always seems to squeek in there... now with so many teams, odds are someone will make a run

so am i supposed to believe that uconn won't make the final 4 because they struggled at home against LSU and that perenial college basketball powerhouse army?

We can't rule out Providence making a run in the Big East Tourney, getting the automatic berth, and making a run in the NCAAs....Sorry I was dreaming again

So the ACC has suspended the officials from saturday's Duke/FSU game for 1 game because they "fouled" up on how they doled out Technicals, unnecessarily giving one to FSU's Alexander Johnson for being bumped by Duke's Shelden Williams. (Note to other college players, ask BC and FSU players about this, you'll find that using your body to impede a Duke player's fist is a foul on you, not the Dukie).
The NFL could learn a few things from the ACC.

The question now is will other officials learn and start calling Duke games in a fair manner or cave in and call the games lopsided the moment coach KrooozyZoooski bitches.

oh please like coach k & duke are the only one who gets a home court advantage from the refs. a guy who i coached with was once a college ref and he told me a story of how louie carneseca had complete control over the referees... the only refs that could T him up were the ones who've been there a long time. any young ref who T'd him up baisicly wouldn't be in the big east for very long. this goes on everywhere there's a big time coach with a big time program. it's one of the worst kept secrets out there... it's a shame, yes, but it's a fact and it doesn't just happen at duke.

it's good to see that they were suspended though... at least the ACC has some balls, unlike the NFL.

Of course the BC game was played in Chestnut Hill, and Duk had a 1,477-3 free throw adavantage.

I really can't blame the refs for hastily calling T's on both Shelden Williams and Alexander Johnson to defuse a heated situation even though Johnson didn't actually shove Williams. (Johnson had hacked Williams pretty hard on the layup attempt, and had been called for an intentional foul earlier in the game.) The problem is that T's also count as personal fouls, which is just dumb, dumb, dumb. Pushing and shoving after the whistle is unsportsmanlike, but it doesn't affect the actual game and shouldn't be penalized like that. We all agree that refs shouldn't "decide the game", and the easiest way to make sure that doesn't happen is to make sure, as much as possible, that their calls don't have the power.

The refs don't consciously give Duke an advantage. They probably do so subconsiously to some small extent, and you better believe Krzyzewski is the best at gaming the refs and coaching his players to draw dubious fouls.

And here's A-Rod at Duke.

i don't like how all of you are picking on duke. duke is just as good a team as any of you and it isn't very nice. why do you all hate duke so much?

I'm not picking on Duke, I just think Duke is insane, there is a difference.
