/Remember Villanova!
2005-04-04 11:33:31 PM  
the Illini had a huge loss and almost brought it back, it's a sad day in Illinois.
2005-04-04 11:33:32 PM  
ref's where calling for N.C. all night,

nice no foul calling pricks !!
2005-04-04 11:33:41 PM  
Does the headline signify the last "Duke Sucks" of the season?

Only time will tell...
2005-04-04 11:33:52 PM  
Duke still rocks but since they didnt play 2nite GO UNC
2005-04-04 11:33:52 PM  
GT in '06!
2005-04-04 11:33:55 PM  
The fix was in.... Illinois got the shaft in the referee department.
2005-04-04 11:34:00 PM  
I'm heartbroken. But, it was a great game and an outstanding tourney. Illinois will be a force again next year.

Congrats, Carolina, but Well done, Illini!!!
2005-04-04 11:34:14 PM  
Congrats to Roy Williams, a truly honest guy, on finally winning it.

And if it had to be a North Carolina team, thank God it wasn't Duke.

Congrats to Tar Heel fans.
2005-04-04 11:34:14 PM  
I won $17.50!!!
2005-04-04 11:34:15 PM  
What ever happened to MARCH madness?
/its april, right?
2005-04-04 11:34:48 PM  
At least the game was exciting. The final four sucked this year.
2005-04-04 11:34:53 PM  
Awesome. Vindicated. UNC proved that they were the best team in the country.
2005-04-04 11:35:01 PM  
One Shining Moment?
2005-04-04 11:35:10 PM  
I called a NC/Illinois final, with NC winning.

... along with about 50% of everyone else who made a board this year. Both great teams, just came down to Sean May dominating and Illinois' guards not being able to hit 3s down the stretch.
2005-04-04 11:35:18 PM  
Money money money!
2005-04-04 11:35:18 PM  


Proud Tar Heel fan since the late 1970s!

Oh, and DUKE SUCKS!!!!
2005-04-04 11:35:48 PM  
I don't mind that the Illini lost tonight. BUT, it couldn't have been to a worse team.

If they had lost the championship to Florida, OK St., Arizona, Wake, or even (gasp!) Duke I would feel much better.

//must NC fans around here are wannabe douchebags
2005-04-04 11:35:52 PM  
The Final Four sucked, perhaps because the Elite Eight may have been the greatest weekend of basketball games in tourney history.
2005-04-04 11:35:55 PM  
Like always. Duke sucks.

/Gators lost because Villanova played Rocky Top
//Everyone in the SEC Hates Rocky Top
///Get 'em next year Gators
2005-04-04 11:36:03 PM  
"ya mouf was dry....

... have a coke."

///back pain sucks.
////slash attack - Go Heels.
2005-04-04 11:36:04 PM  
was rooting for Illinois and agree that the fouls were suspect - but you have to admit that the commentators were right when they were talking about the number of moving screens Illinois was getting away with.
2005-04-04 11:36:10 PM  
Fark North Carolina and fark the ACC.
2005-04-04 11:36:40 PM  
wow...unbelievable game. congrats to roy finally winning a title. WOOT!
2005-04-04 11:36:41 PM  
Sucks to be an Illini fan/alum.

/Illini fan/alum.
2005-04-04 11:36:43 PM  
Yeah, Illinois got away with so many illegal screens at the end it wasn't even funny, so I could see how you think the refs gave it to UNC.

/Go 'Heels!
//UK in '06!
///It's awesome, baby!
2005-04-04 11:36:58 PM  
woohoo I just won my office pool! I'm a hundred bucks richer!

/go heels
2005-04-04 11:37:02 PM  
38 shots from 3? WTF?
2005-04-04 11:37:15 PM  
Man, I wish I had gone to Franklin St after work and stayed there, oh well.

Trying to park in CH is bad on a normal day, I can't imagine what it is like tonight. I feel bad for those kids who are getting their cars flipped too.

2005-04-04 11:37:18 PM  
I wonder what the KU fans are thinking.
2005-04-04 11:37:24 PM  
Hells' bells, where's the "obvious" tag?! the illini have been overhyped all season. i know they only lost one other game; they only played about 3 decent teams all season.

aaahhh, 'heels.
2005-04-04 11:37:35 PM  
jyohio: ref's where calling for N.C. all night,

And they made up for it by not calling illegal screens on Illinois. Get over it :)

2005-04-04 11:37:39 PM  
Refs were definately on the side of the Tarholes in this game and the Michigan State game. They let May do whatever he wanted and called five ticky tack fouls on Augustine. The Michigan State game was even worse. The Tarholes were all over the backs of State in the paint but no calls.

/screw you, Tarholes
2005-04-04 11:38:08 PM  
jhjmonnee: GT in '06!


what planet are you living on
2005-04-04 11:38:24 PM  
oh, yeah, and duke sucks.
2005-04-04 11:38:45 PM  
For once, I actually got to draw a circle around my championship pick, instead of a big red "X".
I got all my picks from the final four and on.

Viva Tarheels!
2005-04-04 11:38:53 PM  
i wonder when they are going to sell all the illinoise national championship shirts
2005-04-04 11:39:01 PM  
I wonder what the KU fans are thinking.

They're thinking "How the hell did Florida beat us."
2005-04-04 11:39:05 PM  
Tears, tears.

/Duke sucks
2005-04-04 11:39:35 PM  
jesus christ...all these commercial breaks during the trophy presentation are farking killing me. can't they just get it on, then get it off?
2005-04-04 11:39:53 PM  
All I've got to say is go big ten 3/8 and 2/4
go MSU
2005-04-04 11:40:17 PM  
Illegal screens by Illinois all night, never called. This gave Them so many open shots. NC still wins.
2005-04-04 11:40:37 PM  
Now that this is over...

No pictures of Akbar and the "Its a Trap" defense?
