Welp, no post season for Louisville.  They imposed a 1 year ban on themselves over the stripper/recruiting scandal.

You mean whores not strippers. I saw that at lunch with my daughter today (fair day so no school and working from home).  That is them trying to get ahead of it before NCAA really delves in. One year is their hope for what they would have given but I can see NCAA coming down a lot harder. Maybe a few years and take away some scholarships.

Welp, that was soul crushing.  Carolina should have blown Duke out, but they couldn't put them away.  And then the execution in the final couple minutes was horrible.

My team is in the shitter with both of our big guys hurt and this new interim head coach who is the head coach due to politics and not because he deserves it, his only head coaching experience was one year as head coach of Findlay Prep (High School team but one of the best in the nation).  

What is going on with OU lately?  I have not been able to follow a lot but they are dropping games, lost to Kansas at home, lost to K State (Krugers Alma Mater) and just lost to Texas Tech.  I can understand the first one but the other two seem like hangover losses unless they have had some injuries.

The Tar Heels won the ACC championship!  They locked up a #1 seed by beating Virginia.  UVa was able to force their style of game, a grind it out, half court game, but UNC was still able to win.  The best defense I've seen UNC play in a long time.

Syracuse is better than their record. For the doubters who thought another team should've gotten in over the Orange, you were dead wrong... 

This is probably Jim Boeheim's guttiest squad ever... I thought they would make the tournament, but would've had to play a First Four game, and probably end up in the South region with Kansas. 

I will say that Middle Tennessee beating Michigan State, and Gonzaga winning against the #3 seed helped, but even with all the help in the first two rounds, they still beat the #3 overall seed in Virginia.

It's on to Houston, to play UNC (who will probably destroy us).

Curious what others thought about the refs in tonight's NCAA championship game...

There were a ton of missed calls - mostly travels and ticky-tack fouls - which is fine.  But then there were several obvious hard fouls with no call, and quite a few ticky-tack fouls that were called.

Just seemed very strange and inconsistent.  Overall still a very watchable game!

I will say I agree, but at least they were consistent both ways... the one foul they called on UNC should've been a jump ball. 

Great shot by Jenkins after Paige hit the three to tie it. It was a great game, a lot of my co-workers were saying UNC was going to kill Villanova, but they were wrong... What a great game, and great finish.

I pretty much don't care if calls are missed as long as they are consistent. I hate tightly called games. I think it can disrupt the flow of the game. If Ted Valentine is calling a game I will not watch. You know both teams are going to be in the double bonus before 10 minutes remaining in each half. It's just god awful to watch.

That was just a too clean of a look for that point in the game.Still, a great shot from 4 feet behind the 3-point line.

I'm biased, but I thought Carolina got called with a number of bogus, ricky-tack fouls in the first half.  And in the second half they got called for a foul on a jump ball, then it turns around and Villanova got a jump ball on pretty much the same situation.

There were some calls that left us scratching our head.  The one that had me at wtf. Was when the nova guard ran into the back of a NC player and they called a foul on the NC player. Exactly what was he supposed to do ??   If they publicly repimanded the refs, this wouldn't be such an issue.  

Oh well one heck of a game thou.

I agree. However a ref's call didn't decide the game.

    • Got our shots tonight. Moderna vaccine and already scheduled for the follow up shot. Man, but they had things dialed in. Very slick operation and all went well. Many thanks to the folks around the country working these clinics! Except... major side effect! When I went in I had a full head of dark brown hair and when I got home and looked in the mirror imagine my surprise when I saw that what was left of my hair was grey!  Ha! Seriously, no side effects from this shot for me - not even a sore arm!
    • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) A strange movie. Kind of hard to follow along too. Overall, a good dark thriller. I give it a tap in par. 
    • This is what I do as well. When I focus just on the ball, or a dimple on the ball, or a blade of grass, my takeaway gets funky, or more so than usual, and my swing gets all out of sync. 
    • I rarely ever play an extra ball.  if I am on top of the group in front of me and it is open behind me I may go back and replay the hole but that is rare. My preference is to get a true score. The course is to play, the range is for practice.
    • Very possible. I usually play well when I "feel" like I rotate everything towards the target at the same time.
