Nothing to lose. Everything to win. Syracuse. Kansas. Ohio State. Wisconsin. It's time to close the deal, on the biggest stage of all. GO BLUE! Beat the &@$#* Duke Blue Devils!

Don't get me wrong.  I don't hate Duke.  Like any marquee team, they tend to get the calls.  The thing I hate is that half-wit announcers and commentators who show up around tourney time put blinders on and rave about Duke without really considering the matchup.

I can't stand how the announcers try to avoid the huge foul discrepancy/referee bias with statements like, "Michigan's such a young team, they have such a bright future."  Ah, yes, Michigan's youth explains the blatant no-calls against Duke and the ticky-tack calls against them.

You know how some people look so goofy that it just pisses you off? Duke has the highest concentration of those kinda people that I've ever seen.

Singler is so damn ugly that I can't stand to look at him. My hate for him has nothing to do with him being good, but him being good does add to my hate.

like this is the reason college basketball gets harder and harder to watch.  And I'm talking on both ends of the floor.  Every fucking trip down the floor is a foul for christ's sake.  Hard to watch.

Easy to hate Duke.  I think it's a smugness, or something.

Not big on hating on officials either, but this has been pretty bad, and allowed Duke to control the tempo and style of the game.

Darius has been getting stuffed on his drives all game. TImmy needs to get an open look before he keeps trying these contested threes.

All season it used to worry me that Morris would dribble into trouble, not pick up his dribble, and somehow dribble or pass his way (or shoot) out of it.

After awhile i decided to give up and love the Bomb.
