How's Duke doing??
2005-03-26 10:17:02 PM  
I still can't believe Bucknell got knocked out.
2005-03-26 10:17:10 PM  
Big 10 pwns joo!
2005-03-26 10:18:13 PM  
How did Illinois win?
2005-03-26 10:19:14 PM  
You know, I didn't want to say it on Thursday because Arizona played a good game then, but I'm going to say it now: they got lucky.
2005-03-26 10:19:27 PM  
Arizona was the biggest choker in the history of the tournament tonight. And as a result, I'm a slave to a mean broad now.
2005-03-26 10:19:45 PM  
WVU rebounding just completely atrocious. Had it not been for the 7minutes of lights out shooting in the first half, we lose by 20. I don't think we had more than 2 defensive stops in the last 10min of the 2nd half and overtime...

2005-03-26 10:21:26 PM  
I've said this like 10 times already but It's been half an hour of almost non-stop-shaking.

Two heart pounding games in a row.

I think I should see a doctor.
2005-03-26 10:21:48 PM  
teabag the government.
2005-03-26 10:22:25 PM  
Let's get this out of the way. Duke Sucks!
2005-03-26 10:22:51 PM  
Did you see that farking game?!!! I pissed my pull-aways. Illinois is super-natural. Best game I've ever seen. Ever.

/Louisville was good too.
//U. of I. alum '98. It's good to be king.
2005-03-26 10:23:47 PM  
AZ sucks. Up by 14 with 2 mins left and they blow it? Choke!
2005-03-26 10:24:06 PM  


best game in a long time I've seen. I can't...I can't even find the words.

I had to leave the room to just calm the fark down.

I'm high off of that game.
2005-03-26 10:24:51 PM  
I almost vomited during the end of regulation in the Illinois game. I had it on Tivo, I was about 10 minutes behind and started fast forwarding when they were down 11, Holy SHiat when Williams hit the three to tie, I almost passed out.
2005-03-26 10:25:26 PM  
I couldn't sit down.

I got up on the couch and held a pillow for the entire OT period.
2005-03-26 10:26:31 PM  
2005-03-26 10:26:33 PM  
little late on the discussion thread for tonite fark nukers
2005-03-26 10:26:51 PM  
Well, the Sioux are beating up on Boston College right now...5-2 in the 3rd period.

Go Sioux!!

Oh wait...
2005-03-26 10:27:08 PM  
I have UNC in my office pool...what are my chances?
2005-03-26 10:27:19 PM  
Best... Game... Ever...

Go Illini!
2005-03-26 10:27:22 PM  
did anyone notice that IL comminted about 15 fouls that weren't called? refs handed them the game
2005-03-26 10:27:52 PM  
Hmmm...Arizona blowing a 14-point lead with 2:00 left...or West Virginia slowly, slooooooooooowly gagging away a Cinderella Final Four?

Which WAS worse?
2005-03-26 10:28:24 PM  
2005-03-26 10:29:24 PM  
How about that Colorado College/Michigan game? Wow what an OT thriller!

2005-03-26 10:30:20 PM  
did anyone notice that IL comminted about 15 fouls that weren't called? refs handed them the game

I agree.
I'm not sure about the fouls, but when the refs made three clutch three-pointers down the stretch and stole the ball twice, that was going way too far.
2005-03-26 10:30:44 PM  
Some of those "steals" at the end of regulation were aided by a swallowed whistle. UofI got LUCKY.
2005-03-26 10:30:47 PM  

15 fouls? Please, bring something if you are going to bring it. You have GOT to be kidding me.
2005-03-26 10:30:48 PM  
Bwahahaha, Man, I am in 11th place in the fark group! I have not watched a single basketball game all year (not a big b-ball fan) but Im still kicking ass in the challenge! :D Not bad for "Totally Random Picks" :)
2005-03-26 10:32:26 PM  
Arizona got:

Biggest. Choke. Ever.
2005-03-26 10:32:54 PM  
Okay, I'm afraid right now.

North Dakota won, Colorado College won, and UNH and Cornell both face WCHA teams. Denver > UNH, especially since Pietrasiak will be playing, I have no faith that the wildcats can do it, (;_;) and Minnesota has the crowd on their side, even if Cornell's the better team, home-ice means something in this sport. (I'm really hoping 4 losses and three ties all season means more)

Not only is it looking like there might be no New England team in the frozen four, but it's looking scarily like an all-WCHA affair.

That said, my bracket's 7-1 in the first round, and I'm one for two on frozen four teams with my other two remaining. :P
2005-03-26 10:33:08 PM  
I would normally say that the refs swallowed the whistles... but... when Arizona runs a post-up play 20 feet from the hoop, then runs the clock down to 2 seconds left before doing anything, they don't deserve the sympathy. fark 'em.

My bracket was fuxored long ago anyway.
2005-03-26 10:33:19 PM  
I guess Arizona's luck finally ran out.
2005-03-26 10:33:47 PM  
[image from too old to be available]


yes! Williams and Head....ajfalskdfjas;df! yes!
2005-03-26 10:33:58 PM  
please i counted at least 5 times when the announcers said oh i guess they decided not to call that foul and when they say something it usually means it was ridiculous. not to mention one of those steals was when the zona player got run over.
2005-03-26 10:34:11 PM  
Man... West Virginia had a good season, but why did they have to lose like that!?

Great season, 'Eers, but you gave me a headache for the rest of the night.

I need a drink....
2005-03-26 10:34:12 PM  
I wonder if the BCS geniuses were watching the games today? College tournaments would certainly spoil the integrity of NCAA athletics.
2005-03-26 10:34:12 PM  
I was so mad after the AZ choke I beat the shiat out of my wife.


but I was really pissed.
2005-03-26 10:34:20 PM  
Arizona choked. What the hell happened those last 10 seconds? They didn't deserve to win.
2005-03-26 10:34:54 PM  
cke you are so lucky to get that job. hop on the bandwagon!
2005-03-26 10:35:55 PM  
Arizona choked so bad I say we revoke their win against OSU.

/Of course I say that :)
2005-03-26 10:36:51 PM  
If you guys need anything, my slave, cke-gt, will be happy to get it for you.
2005-03-26 10:36:59 PM  
...and AZ didn't deserve to win after that last 10 seconds. im a 5'11" white guy with average skills and i could have gotten a better shot
2005-03-26 10:37:00 PM  
Thanks Arizona, for a great season. We had Illinois on the ropes. Great game. Next year AZ, next year.
2005-03-26 10:38:24 PM  
Greatest comeback ever. UofI has something special.
2005-03-26 10:38:29 PM  
Arizona was throwing nut-punches all game. Lute's coaching specialty is the five on two. The ref's called a good game, from where I'zz sittin'.
2005-03-26 10:38:33 PM  
Anyone else still recalling the bullshiat traveling call on the 'Nova guy last nite?... ACC should be plumb out of this tourney.

2005-03-26 10:38:48 PM  
It will be Kentucky vs. Louisville in the finals, you North Carolina and Illinois people will be severely disappointed after the national semis. First off, no other team besides Kentucky has the heart to make it on that side of the bracket(UNC is Duke-lite). Louisville is going to make Illinois look stupid. It will be an all-bluegrass national final, and the entire nation will go bourbon crazy.
2005-03-26 10:39:13 PM  
Arizona was the biggest choker in the history of the tournament tonight....

Also, recall that Arizona lost to a no. 14 seed in 1992, and a no. 15 seed, Santa Clara, in 1993.
2005-03-26 10:41:02 PM  
I hate UNC, they should have fallen.

Big Ten up.
Accholes down.
