    Didn't watch a second. The NCAA really needs to rethink the whole 9:30 tip time on a freaking Monday night. Absurd.

    Congrats to UNC and my man @NKYknowitall. Most said that whoever came out of the UNC/Kentucky/UCLA group was going to cut them down and they did just that. By season's end those may have been the best 3 teams in the country.

    It's a shame the committee put those 3 teams in the same bracket.

    Not only the late tip, but they went with extended commercials. Didn't feel like the game would ever end.

    The games seem to get longer every year. Three hours for something that should take about 90 minutes.

    While ugly, it does not displace the 2011 Final Four as the ugliest Final Four of all time. I still have nightmares about attending that abomination.

KEEP CALLING FOULS until they stop playing this way and coaches quit coaching this way!! Also, my prediction on the game NC 73-69 was pretty darn close.
    What gets me is that the refs did call it close at the beginning of the season. By NCAA Tourney time it was back to a lot of the Big East style. Pushing the level of physicality as far as it can be.

    My problem with the notion that the Officials are in the backpocket of the Tar Heels is WHY?

    Why would they be so? (if true)

    The NCAA did not want UNC to win it because it was like watching the old Raiders win it in 1980's and Pete Rozelle detested Al Davis.

    The NCAA is investigating the National Champs. Do you think they want them to win?

    UNC fans don't like Emerit.

    Other fans don't like UNC.

    Seems logical to get boos for both.

    A lot easier to adjust when in the NBA guys are around 6,8 10 years and so on. When in college basketball you have so many players that only around a few years at most. That is the problem with this thinking. Rookies who join the league learn to adjust because everyone else already had learned it and been doing it for years and play 80 games a year. Players don't reach 80 games in college until their Junior year.

    It won't clean up the college game because players don't have the time to adjust like in the NBA. All we will keep getting is ugly free throw shooting contest. Plus there is so many refs in college compared to the NBA. So to much inconsistency in refs.

    Imo I loved the game as it was before they started this freedom of movement stuff. If they want to increase scoring. Then just don't have final fours or tournament games in domes, where it's harder to shoot.

    Hell, you just know they won't accomplish this because I honestly believe TV won't allow it. Got to get as many commercials in as possible.

    But congrats to Roy and UNC.
    I saw the same thing you did. The clock was at 49.1 seconds. Could have made a difference, but who knows. Anybody got a still picture of this?
