    Yeah I went to the casino to play some cards after work last night and they had it on the TV next to my table. The 2nd OT had just started when I sat down. Wasn't expecting to see 3 OTs after that haha. Hell of a game. Tho Louisville should have won it in the 2nd OT. Had the ball, tie game with 12 seconds left and took a terrible shot then missed a put back lay up. I had a feeling ND was gonna win that game after they got that stop there.

    Well that was the most embarrassing loss Michigan has experienced in a while. Robinson and Stauskas need to step it up. And Hardaway can't shoot like that ever again.


    EDIT: And Nerlins Noel has a torn ACL.

    I'm not seeing much at the top. As you all know I'm a big OK State fan and we STOMPED NC State and Kansas pretty easily: NC State was #6 at the time; Kansas was #2 at the time. Of course we turned right around and dropped two in a row to unranked teams, but that's what spastic 19-year-olds with shjtty refs and no composure do when they get excited. This is NOT the NBA. The old saying about parity has perhaps never been truer. Any given Sunday, IMO.

    How have the Big XII refs been in general this year? Because the ones in the Big East have been flat out awful.

    That lucky shot by Butler doesn't fall and the Zags are the number 1 team in the country.

    Awful. Since Thunder moved to OKC and I've been watching a lot more NBA hoops, going back and watching NCAA the most obvious difference is the officiating, which is wildly inconsistent, ticky-tack, and often flat-out bad. College is hectic enough with emotionally bonkers 18-year-olds and rabid crowds and frantic pace, lots of turnovers and sometimes sloppy play -- mix in some whistle happy, half-blind officials and it's probably the most stressful thing I do all week.

    Since posting, OK State picks up another nice win in Bedlam vs. OU with an overtime win which moves them into a 3-place tie for conference and a top 15 national ranking. This team is STACKED with athletes, most of whom are freshmen, and FEW of which will see a sophomore year, let alone a senior year.

    NBA refs are the worst in all of sports. They are half a notch above WWE refs.

    Real gem last night. OK State vs. KU gotes into DOUBLE OT. Benches are emptied. 20 lead changes. KU squeeks out a 1 pt win in a game that never was ANY lead greater than 5 pts. Sustained intensity like I've never seen. Guys were fouling out. Diving on the floor. Hitting crazy shots. Real battle. Some whack calls, but overall not terrible. KU's win will probably bump them up into the top 10 nationally and put them in a tie for conference championships with K State. This would have been the first season sweep of KU by OK State in 30 years. KU has won the Big XII conference championship 8 years in a row. With teams like OU, Texas, Missouri, and OSU that's an extremely impressive dominance streak.
