2014-15 NCAA Basketball Thread: March Madness

Recommended Posts

Great job Badgers and I'm definitely cheering them on against Duke as their fans have suffered long enough to get the national title (1941 right?).

Kentucky not only choked but they are sore losers.

I wanted Kentucky to win, but I'm very happy for the Badgers. They felt like the only team in the tournament that could've taken Kentucky, and they did it. Nice to see some fresh blood in the title game!

Now, OF COURSE, they're gonna lose to Duke. Why? Because College basketball is stupid and any really fun storyline is always eventually smashed to bits by Duke, Uconn, or UNC.

Note to all athletes: Caroline Wozniacki will cause you or your team to lose.

The better team won. The idea of a historically mediocre program going into this game and beating a blueblood is preposterous.

Had I been a neutral fan, it would have been an absolute joy to watch a freshman, Tyus Jones, say "no...I am taking this one for our team." Programs like Wisconsin just don't get guys like that.

I had Wisconsin winning it all in my bracket and loved what I saw in that Kentucky game. Of course, the Badgers manage to get ahead by 9 in the second half to immediately blow the lead and lose to Duke as a result of uncharacteristically poor play and some BS calls (you can't possibly convince me that they couldn't determine that the Duke player tipped that ball out; I was watching on my four inch phone screen and I could see it clearly. That's pro-Duke bias at its finest right there; they just had to add to the whole 1,000 win Coach K worship this season by allowing him to win another :censored: ing championship at any cost).

As you can imagine, I despise Duke even more than the average sensible human being after that.

Wish Wisconsin would have won. I think they're the more fundamentally sound basketball team. Of course there were missed calls on both sides, but the two missed possession calls at the end killed Wisconsin. I'm glad to see Coach K get another championship, and he has done a great job with such a young team, but I wish Wisconsin would have walked away with the W tonight.

Gonna beat unbeaten Kentucky but lose to Duke....

That'll be the last time I pull for a Wisconsin based team.

That's pretty much the problem I have with the NCAA Tournament. No matter how exciting some of the story lines can be throughout the tournament, they NEVER fully pan out. It's basically always the same four or five teams that win the title every single year. It's almost baffling how a 64 team tournament can have such little parody. I can't remember in my lifetime ever seeing a non traditional basketball school win the tournament. I often times feel like what's the point of even watching? How is this fun?

The calls favored Wisconsin in the first half and Duke in the second.

Duke did not play great. The door was open. Dekker went cold. They could not finish layups. The early free throw misses hurt. They came out nervous and never found a rhythem. And the best player (Jones) did what best players do...he took over.
